Hello Guest


Description: I've accumulated a bunch of Gyro-Vipers over the years, and they're cool figures. The problem is I only have 1 Mamba; it's a hard vehicle to photograph; and it's equally hard to figure out what else to do with Gyro-Vipers. So a locker room shot it is.

I regret not picking up a Mamba when I had the chance.  

For some reason I've never cared much for Gyro Vipers.  The mold is solid, but the colors just don't seem right to me.

Thanks guys! The wall is a styrofoam set I got from eBay about 6 months ago. A floor and two walls that fit together. It’s been incredibly useful.

Great Shot, I always like Army Builder Pics. Where did you get the background wall from? It really looks good.

You're right in that the Mamba is tough to photograph.  I've tried a couple times and it's never worked.

I do love the idea of a scramble room, though.  The pods of 3 each go to a chopper.  The posing is top notch.

To Nekoman's paratrooper idea, it looks like they have a chute pull handle on their shoulder.  So, that specialty would really work for them.

Yup, this is the same problem I have with Strato-Vipers (I regret not buying the ROC Night Raven back when those were plentiful). It's a cool figure, but really hard to take a shot of him doing anything special. If you wanted to be a little whimsical I guess you could repurpose him as a para-trooper; the mold was reused for Skydive, and Cobra doesn't really have an equivalent to Crazylegs.

I like that wall your using for the locker room.
