120 pages | Hard­back Au­thor: Daniel Pi­card Pub­lisher: In­sight Edi­tions

Sub­ti­tled The Pop Cul­ture Pho­tog­ra­phy Of Daniel Pi­card, book show­cases the artist/ pho­tog­ra­pher’s pic­tures of ac­tion fig­ures and stat­uettes in real world sit­u­a­tions.

This is your chance to see Snowtroop­ers clear­ing snow off their SUVs, Har­ley Quinn tak­ing a selfie and Buffy’s Gen­tle­men tak­ing their dogs for a walk.

The fran­chise mash- ups are par­tic­u­larly fun – no­tably Tim the En­chanter from Monty Python And The Holy Grail giv­ing or­ders to Knights Of The Old Re­pub­lic’s Darth Mal­gus.

It’s ef­fec­tively a re­ally classy ad­vert for Sideshow Col­lectibles, as their range of fig­ures and stat­uettes pro­vides the en­tire cast of the book.

There’s a fore­word from Si­mon Pegg and an after­word from Kevin Smith, both of whom are big fans of Pi­card’s work ( and the won­ders of ac­tion fig­ures).
