Pooltrooper (by ElDave)

You'd think being a Pooltrooper would be a desirable assignment, but you'd be wrong. Stormtroopers HATE getting wet.

I'm in the process of doing more work on my Store (you can see the widget over on the right), and I am really enjoying it. The original plan was to only sell 8x10 prints (keep it simple, right?), but after looking through the stores of various successful photogs, I really need to get off my behind and add different sizes and options. So watch this space, true believer. Good stuff is going in soon!

This is such a great shot. Love it.

I just found you through Flickr. I love what you've done with your toys. You've inspired me. My boyfriend has about 10 boxes of Spawn toys still in their boxes. I've spent five years living with and tripping over the boxes in my studio space. Now I think I've thought of something I can do with them. Unless you'd like to purchase some????? If you're interested we have them cataloged in a database.

@David A Price: Thank you, sir! I really appreciate it.

@shakti space designs: Haha! While I can sympathize with your boyfriend, I am afraid my girlfriend will disown me if I bring in more figures.

Why does he have them in boxes? Set them free (and take pictures)!
