Porkins Medicom Lupin 3rd Collection


An obscure character but nevertheless, part of the very excellent Lupin 3rd Stylish Collection of figure. Been meaning to take individual picts of them some day and never expected to start off with Okosama Lunch. He happens to be displayed at a most accessible location so is easy for me to take it out for photo taking emoticon

Making him stand or hold a pose is a challenge because of the design of the shoes. It simply can't stand without a support.
What I do is to poke a small plastic rod behind the figure to act as a support before snapping away. But the slightest wind will make it fall LOL!
Nevertheless, hope you like the picts. Hopefully, more to come.

Awesome Porkins, this is fantastic, I love the obscure characters and your pics with the titles always looks so professionally done!

Btw, if you have figures that seem to have trouble standing, another trick is to put a round toothpick under his foot... if the figure falls backwards, put the toothpick by the heel and it may be able to counter the falling figure. emoticon

Kaido: thanks for the tips emoticon we sure need it as most of the stylish Lupin figure got an uneven rubber bots.

No problem, see if it works, cub3k!

And in the hands of a good photographer, even the worst toy becomes a 'must buy.' emoticon

Glad you guys like the picts emoticon

Kaido - Thanks for the tip, will surely try it when I do my 2nd Lupin character photoshoot.

cub3K - Nope, the glasses are originally blue albeit lightish blue. I've enhance it a little with Photoshop emoticon

Crap, Porkins you are making me want to start collecting the Lupin line... fantastic shots man.

I've only ever watched Cagliostro and I have a few of the manga volumes (don't like it). I have to admit that I like Hayao Miyazaki's roguish take on the characters best... the comic character is actually kind of sinister.

Re: Porkins Medicom Lupin 3rd Collection


yeah, i watched the Cagliostro and have the old Lupin the 3rd tv series dvd (not a good representation character as of the new Lupin series like Caglio).

so should we asked HunterD1 to dig around Lupin figure again and take another cool shots emoticon

sorry Porkins derailing your pics thread a bit emoticon

Re: Porkins Medicom Lupin 3rd Collection


Haha! No problem there at all Cub3K. Any discussion on Lupin III are most welcome in this thread.
I just downloaded "Castle Cagliostro" yesterday and will watch it soon. Also downloaded "Tokyo Crisis" but it was in Spanish/Portugese I think and no subtitles... so probably have to find another source.

Oh and thanks for your compliments on the picture. Have lots of fun taking them and posing the (almost impossible to pose) figures emoticon
