Help! Photos desperately needed!

Postby The Baron » 18 May 2013 23:09

So I'm ploughing my way through the archives sorting out which pictures to use for the forthcoming Palitoy Collectors Guide book, and I am still missing a few images.

Does anybody have any of these toys? If so, please can you contact me? I urgently need photos!

:sas: SAS Frogman - 1984 'Yellow Circle' MOC
:zforce: Z Force Captain - 1984 Skeletron card back
:zforce: Z Force Commander - loose [zip variant]
:zforce: Z Force Infantryman - 1984 'Yellow Circle' MOC
:zforce: Z Force Infantryman - 1984 Skeletron card back
:zforce: Z Force Sapper - 1984 'Yellow Circle' MOC
:zforce: Z Force Sapper - 1984 Skeletron card back
:space: Space Force Patroller - 1984 'Yellow Circle' MOC
:space: Space Force Patroller - 1984 Skeletron card back

:enemy: Die Terror Bande Laser-Schleuder- box
:enemy: Die Terror Bande Power Truck - loose
:enemy: Die Terror Bande Power Truck - box
:enemy: Die Terror Bande Power Truck - blueprints & instructions
:sas: SATT Nautilus - box
:zforce: ATT Turbo - loose
:zforce: ATT Turbo - box
:zforce: ATT Turbo - blueprints & instructions
:qforce: TSATT Tiefengleiter - loose
:space: WATT Nahkampf-Schlitten - loose
:space: WATT Nahkampf-Schlitten - box
:space: WATT Nahkampf-Schlitten - blueprints & instructions
:space: WATT Raumgleiter - loose
:space: WATT Raumgleiter - blueprints & instructions

:af: AF Flying Submarine - loose
:palcobra: Cobra FANG - loose

But the pictures also need to fit the theme of the book! What I do is get a large sheet of white paper and pin it to the back of the sofa, curving it onto the seat (sometimes with a book or flat surface underneath). The curve makes the background disappear into the distance. Like so:

I need an angled posed 'action' shot, and then both sides, front, back and an above shot (for vehicles), please. Box and MOC photos need to be as square-on as possible, please. Cardbacks and blueprints are best scanned.

Please send photos to bloodforthebaron@gmail.com (it may be easier to place them all into a .zip file and send via http://www.yousendit.com) and please be sure to include your full name if you are not already on the Thanks list!

Thanks for reading!

Jim.

Hi Baron,
Will this book be available to pick up at RORC 4?

Hope so - can't wait to see it!

Cheers

Hi Baron
I'm in the process of photographing the loose variants in the Palitoy range, but I don't have any MOC. If you need any of the ones I'm about to post, let me know.
