    What is fishy? The guy w/ 0 feedback stole the pictures. That's obvious. I see same thing happening on Rolex auctions

    Yeah I know there's much improvement space. Anyway this was just a 1 minute snapshot trial with a simple background and nothing more. Yes, I used a tripod.

    Hello. Yes the building is green. I think the shadow adds dept to the picture. You don't want it to look flat. Anyway with some reflection panels you can get better illumination but it was windy and cold outside and this was just a very quick test. I am waiting a lighting tent to arrive home. I will try later with studio lights and post the results.

    you mean a different color background? I need to get rid of the green reflections (it's my building).

    I really don't see how vintage robots collectors with educated eye for vintage styles could like these papasan "toys". Are you really so hungry for new robots?? I believe the ones out there, the real ones, are enough. There are not others because the time for such a designing is finished and so it must be respected and left alone. By the way, many vintage robots already had an ugly design. I don't think anyone should want to buy everything and anything. I only like what is beautiful and to my eye these papasans are disrespectful and unbelieavably ugly.

    In the sixties there was tin, in the seventies zinc and then plastic. You ask who is coming out with new stuff... well, toy companies are. The point is that you can't put a new twist in something that has an old style without ruining it forever. Car companies lately tried to add a new twist to some old designs and they failed miserably. I bet from an architect or designer point of view this is just like mixing baroque with cubism or something, the result of which can only be terrible. As for papasan work, I think they are not giving a "new twist" but just an "abominable twist". Old toys must be respected and preserved, not ridiculized.

    So this has to be considered ART? Please... Vintage tin robots and toys have some of the most beautiful designs. This papasan work is just profanation.

    Personally I don't know why these papasan guy decided to flood the market with so many ugly frankenrobots. These things are really really ugly. I think they should be stopped.
