Unrelated to the topic, but... is it even possible to make these toys look bad in a photo?
Those were just quick snaps for my BST thread, they're not even the superior Henkei/United versions that replaced them on my shelves, and I didn't even purposefully pose or light or frame them in any particular careful way... just stuck them in my lightbox and snapped one photo each. Then once I opened them on my desktop, I realized they were just oozing personality and lookin' sharp.
Man, that first wave of Classics toys was just designed specifically for my eyeballs. Seeing their photos for the first time, and then opening the entire wave from BBTS for the first time, those are two of my fondest TF collector memories.
