This thread started back in 2010? Wow.

I was a concept designer in the film industry for close to 20 years with mostly mainstream scifi movies and scifi television series - so I won't post any of the characters or critters I designed that became toys. But I've collected some scifi models and figurines over the years and my wife (who I met online in the early days of the internet while working on the Star Wars prequels & Matrix Films) is now dominating our home with figurines of the toys and characters she liked as a kid. I don't mind at all but I tend to photograph the new acquisitions when they arrive.

In terms of technique, I'm not building sets to make the figures look real for the camera or anything like that. I just photograph them (much like product photography) when they arrive or when testing lenses with shallow DOF. In fact there's a few images I'd like to post (but won't) because whilst I like the figurines in them, the images are pretty awful and won't benefit this thread. But for lighting, I've been using colored LEDs to light the backgrounds or scenes since 2001. As long as the LEDs aren't pulsed, the results are usually fairly good.

And a few more... I think these are from Sideshow Collectibles (might be wrong) and the first image of the Winter Soldier was shot in the store that was selling it.

The second image here was photographed with the Canon EOS Ra... which is odd because it's an astrophotography camera with an IR Modified sensor. Seemed to work with the absurdly bright colors of the "WIZARDS" character ('Peace') by Sideshow Collectibles.

Spotted on a kitchen table during an Alice In Wonderland themed birthday dinner. The second image (which I assure you belongs to my wife!) is Squirrel Girl - and it was photographed against a flexible grey card in a cheap lightbox illuminated by a strip of white LEDs. I'm not sure these constitute "action figures" so feel free to ignore or delete if inappropriate.

I had no idea that "THOR: Frog of Thunder" was a real member of the Marvel MCU until my wife filled me in on the backstory when this figurine arrived from Sideshow.
