A buddy on Clubroadster sent me a big box last week. A box of toys. GI Joes, Transformers, Marvel figures, and a huge bag of Micro Machines. He wanted nothing in return. He just wanted the toys to go to a good home.
Thank you, Skinny. Seriously.
My favorites by far out of the whole box were the Micro Machines. I’ve not played with Micros since the late 80s. To suddenly have a whole fleet in front of me. Well, it was pretty awesome. And this little MR2? Oh man. This little beauty is the pick of the litter. The sharp corners and the squished deformed style totally work. Curvy Micro Machines are nice and all, but these boxy ones have style.
Shooting this little car was challenging to say the least. Finding angles to make it look more like a car and less like something smaller than a US quarter was incredibly difficult. But SO much fun! Now that I have a whole fleet of these little guys, I expect to do a few more Micro photoshoots.
Once again, thanks for the toys, Skinny. They totally made my weekend.
