    I love making these once in a while, so I thought I'd love to see others' as well :) Did a little searching for an appropriate thread to post these in, but the best place I found was the "No reason whatsoever" thread. I thought it'd be cool to just have one for these little "skits". If you know of a similar, more appropriate thread for these to go in that makes this one unnecessary, please do tell.

    I agree! These are Great, Rei .

    Love the sequential idea, and your choice to put the skeleton insert in the Mechagodzilla looks awesome. Looks good with the head off too.

    If you don't mind, I'd like to download these, bud.

    Really nice photos, and cool idea. That is such a nice Slash MG, and the skeleton goes in him perfectly, haha. I love how he is peeping through the neck. :) The second series is just as nice too. Tie Fighter pilot goes on moon patrol. Brilliant!

    You need to find pickleloaf's old toy comic strips to see how it's really done

    Oh man, pickleloaf's stuff had me crying. I'm not sure they're still available...?
    Anyway, I like what's happening here.

    So, inspired by Alex (pickleloaf)'s always very enjoyable posts of humourous toy adventures (see this and this for just a couple examples), another boardie and I were discussing the value of having a thread dedicated to these short toy stories told in photo format. So here is one to get the ball rolling.









    Apologies for the cheese and poor lighting, I just wanted to throw a little something together, but I hope a couple people enjoyed it. Post your own below [and Alex, feel free to re-congregate some of your others here as well, and thank you very much for starting this idea! You always start the best threads, so this one is for you].

    Haha, Very Nice, Steve :D

    I do think that there's a thread like this already up though. I remember Rei contributing to it a few times.

    Great idea, sir! As you know, I was hunting for some sort of dedicated thread like this just last week.

    Although this doesn't go the bubble route - apologies - here's a repeat presentation of something I tossed up in the (oft neglected) Bear Model thread back on the 9th:

    Me too. These are great :D

    I always enjoy David's buddy comedy romps.

    Re: Photo Comix

    ^ Definitely. Lovely photos, and so much fun. I can always rely on David's pics to give me a big, sheepish, 7-year old grin. (and it sure doesn't hurt that I want to join in the fun and play with all those toys with glee)

    When I see those two above posted (before the Magular buddy romp) together you collected David, I read it is a mass game of hide-and-seek/tag with those pesky Buta varmints; sadly, it seems just like a cruel joke to play on my good buddy Namegon though. :(

    I'm pretty positive there used to be a thread of those in the past... I want to say bansheebot was a regular poster? My search skills fail me.

    Re: Photo Comix

    Yeah, I thought so too Oli, but could not turn up anything either in my searches or enquiries to others. The memory is not what it once was (though the search function is as good as it has been). Best I could come up with were some of pickleloaf's individual threads I referenced when I started my own sort-of similar post a while back:

    viewtopic.php?f=17&t=50232

    If anyone remembers where/what those were, speak up!

    Ah yeah, pickleloaf! Those are the ones I was thinking about. Not sure if I've seen a thread with everyone's contributions...

    Re: Photo Comix

    I guess the point of this one is too have sequentially juxtaposed pics without words~ maybe comix is the wrong word for the thread! Would love to see others' stuff on here :)
