Epic "Stranger Things" "24" "Terminator" "Gotham" crossover  
Epic crossover is epic! Everyone told me to watch "Stranger Things". I did and I am already feeling the urge for more figures. I knew it was a mistake ;) Then this happened.

"Stranger Things" Chief Hopper and Jack Bauer from "24" try to contain the T-1000 from "Terminator" but he overcomes them. Then Alfred Pennyworth joins Harvey Bullock from "Gotham" and they blast him full of holes!

Lolol, this is indeed epic, ha! I told ya ST was awesome. The kids are so great. I hope you have seen both seasons so I’m just gonna say RRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrr :D

I need to get used to new abbreviations, for me ST stands for Star Trek ;)
But yes, I understand the hype now. It draws you nicely in. I was a bit vary of the supernatural stuff as that is not something I like, but it is well balanced with great characters and actors and a little bit of mystery is fine.

No, I'm still in the middle of season 1. Last three episodes tomorrow. So there will be something to RRRrrrrr about later? Looking forward to it ;) I try to stay away from spoilers and only read the episode discussions that I have seen.

That chain-link fence is amazing. :o Is the backdrop a playset?

Also, I'm really impressed that you can get such good shots in such low lighting!

Thank you!
It’s one of those Extreme Sets I told you about, check it out! If you click the pictures then you can see what you get. It’s called Deranged Alley: https://extreme-sets.com/

It’s just printed cardboard and can be set up in any way. The asylum even has doors that open and pillars (which you need to fold up) for 3D effect. I love them!

I wanted a bit of a night scene illumination. I have an electric snowflake – like an electric tea light –that switches between colors of red, green, blue. So I am holding that with one hand to lighten the scene while photographing with the other. I have just a small camera but I am happy it can take such good pics. Of course you did not see the hundreds others that I threw away ;)

Hahaha, awesome! I want to see this cross-over in RL now XD
Antjedieastra on August 4th, 2018 05:56 pm (UTC)
Me too! Man, I'm burning through the Stranger Things episodes. I am already in season 2. I can't stop!

WOW§ THis is really highly dramatic! And not only a crossover but a real crossfire!!!
Amazing scenes!!!
Antjedieastra on August 4th, 2018 05:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Haha yes crossfire!
I re-did the last picture, at first I had Alfred in the front, photographing over his back but then I realized he and Bullock would shoot each other this way. Also I wanted to see his face.

Thank you!
I am already looking at more Stranger Things figures. There might be more pictures in the future.

Great pics

I'm only passingly aware of who most of these people are but this scene is awesome! Excellent angles, excellent light and of course the toys look great. Is the set from that one website you linked me before?
Antjedieastra on August 4th, 2018 09:06 pm (UTC)
Yes, that's the Deranged Alley set from https://extreme-sets.com/

Just two of the many different pieces it comes with. I just love how versatile those are as you can put them together which ever way you want. And so quickly set up, if I am not in the mood for something more elaborate.

I only bought the Sheriff because I liked him but then everyone told me to watch "Stranger Things" (it's a new show that's set in the Eighties, with teenager boys who discover a supernatural mystery, quite fun) and now I am hooked *sigh* I knew that would happen. Now I have to buy more figures in this line. It never ends...

Don't feel bad for not knowing everyone, I am a member in some toy forums where guys post the weirdest figures and I have no idea which fandom they belong to ;) But they still look cool. That's what I love about this hobby, the variety. I found a girl on Twitter who does pictures with a little teddy bear, she has some of the same dollhouse stuff like me. So cute!

I can't fully appreciate the crossover, as I don't watch any of those shows, but there's so much action on those photos! Poor guy with a hole in his face! This neighbourhood doesn't look like one you'd like to live in ;)

What? You've never seen "Terminator 2" with Robert Patrick? It's a classic! It's because of me liking him so much in this role that I finally started to watch X-files when he joined the team (started at the beginning with Mulder of course, but originally it really was for Robert Patrick)

The first Terminator movie was with Arnold Schwarzenegger as the bad guy. A mechanic Terminator which they were able to destroy in the end. But in the second Arnie was the good guy trying to defend the child (and it led to a lot of hilarios scenes where the kid tried to teach him to be more "human") against the new T-1000. It actually was the first DVD I bought, I did not even have a DVD player at the time. But it came in a cool tin case and somehow tickled my bones ;)

It was made in the Nineties and I remember seeing it in TV and being blown away by the special effects which were very new at the time. Especially the morphing. He could morph through bars, or also once hid as the floor, lying flat, looking like tiles and then attacking from behind. There was basically no way to stop or kill him as he just would close the bullet holes and look anew. Once they blew him up and he was many small puddles but then they morphed togeter again, like liquid mercury.

Very scary stuff! This is also how he has these spikes coming out of his hands.

I made an introduction post for this figure, as you can vary the outfit a few times, and I like that. Good value for the money I paid: https://dieastra.livejournal.com/287436.html

I just started to watch "Stranger Things" a few days ago and I love it! I kept hearing a lot of buzz in the net about it. It's set in the Eighties and about a group of children who try to find their lost friend. There is something supernatural going on as well. Great fun! The kids are amazing, very natural. A lot of people like it as they grew up in the Eighties and remember all those things - kids roaming around, without parental influence. It feels like an old Spielberg movie, like E.T. or the like. First season is just 8 episodes if you want to try it out. They go by very quickly and you want to know what happens next. And I have fallen for the Sheriff now ;)

I had bought the Sheriff figure before I was watching and now it's so nice to actually know about him as a character and also he is an amazing actor. I just found out he also was in "Brokeback Mountain" which by chance came on TV yesterday evening so that's what I will be watching later!

I did like the first season of "24" with Kiefer Sutherland but then in the second it suddenly started to get too dark and violent for me and I stopped watching. I just thought he ought to come out to play as well. His introduction post is here if you like: https://dieastra.livejournal.com/198360.html

I always buy these figures more for the cool display bases they come with ;)

OMG YOU WATCHED STRANGER THINGS!!!! I love this show. At one of Toronto's art festivals they did a Stranger Things installation with the upside down which I mentioned in this post:Nuit Blanche 2017.

Amazing crossover pics!
Antjedieastra on August 11th, 2018 05:25 pm (UTC)
LOL you waited an hour to see some red lighted trees? I would ask if you have any pictures but probably not. Although I like the idea with the hazmat suits!

Do we know how they actually did the floating things in the show? I have not seen any behind-the-scenes videos yet. Would have been nice if they added that to the exhibition.

There is one regular Will figure and one where he is upside down in the package. The idea alone! From the picture it seems like his jeans are a bit more dirty but otherwise the same: https://www.derivefigurine.com/11002-large_default/stranger-things-figure-of-your-choice.jpg

Edit: Looking for that above picture, I just found this Toy Fair report. Check out the Ghostbusters figures! Awesome! I just went from "Guess I should at least get all the kids as Eleven would feel alone otherwise" to "I need to buy every variant they throw at me!"
What has this show done to me?
