Minimate Spotlight #3 Electro

Filed under: Minimate Spotlight — Donny B @ 10:47 am

Action figures have long been a perfect compliment to comic books, since every kid (or kid at heart) has that natural desire to act out adventures with their favorite heroes off the drawn page. Every so often, a unique style of figure comes along that breaks the mold, so to speak. Each Saturday, Donny B will be showcasing various offerings from Art Asylum’s take on the ‘block figure’, with a weekly spotlight on Minimates.

Everybody loves a good hero, but what is a hero if there are no formidable villains to fend off? Toy companies understand this concept, since no super powered protagonist can compliment an active imagination without a baddie to conqueror in an epic showdown.

Even big name Spidey villains such as Green Goblin or Doc Ock occasionally need a day off so they can recuperate from the massive butt-kicking they receive at the hands of everybody’s favorite wall crawler. That’s when Spidey’s B-list antagonists step up to try taking out our radioactive hero where the A-listers failed. One such mid level villain is the electrically charged Max Dillon, A.K.A. Electro.

The fun part of taking photos of super powered characters is doing the post production work to show off what their powers do. In this case, I used some basic glow effects/lightning tubes to heighten the appearance of electricity coursing through Electro’s veins.
