Toby's Photos

Postby Quickfire » 15 Jan 2013 22:46

The joy of twitter via AnniePalitoy, Gung-Ho Eddie, Hopper, TKW, Meertoh, et. al. etc. etc.

@Tobysphotos 14 Jan
"How things have moved on since this Palitoy shoot in 1982. No more delicious 10x8 tranny's, just pixels"

Image

Thus did Mr. Savage clarify to Annie & TKW

"Back then I did all the packaging shots - the pictures on the side of the box."

And forsooth did Hopper verily hypothesise

"Wow, amazing! Is that the photo shoot for the first summer special? I recognise the sand!"

And an Easter egg to boot, apparently the photos were found by a Herr Graham Brown.

Toby's website is http://www.tobysavage.co.uk/. Maybe he has more :AFLogo: pics squirrelled away.

Brilliant Quickie!
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
