Ready Player One Inspired Pics

Click image to enlarge

I was a winner in a contest to catch an early screening of "Ready Player One" recently. (Thanks Geek Culture and Warner Bros. Singapore !) The show was awesome! It had plenty of action and was lots of fun. Things get set up very quickly and we are introduced to the VR world that is The Oasis. I'm sure you're aware that there are lots and lots of pop culture characters and references in it. One screening is not enough to catch them all. I'm not going to spoil anything. I'll just say I loved the sequences with DeLorean, Iron Giant and the RX-78-2. Really cool! I love the soundtrack too. There are several familiar tunes. I just wish that certain characters, both human and avatars were used more. I also didn't like the shaky camerawork in some instances and how some things are so convenient.

I was buzzing after the show. So much so I decided to dig out some figures for a shot. The above was randomly put together. Please excuse the scale. I deliberately did not use much Marvel and Star Wars as I cover quite a lot of those already. Besides I was already struggling for space and background paper.  

Since the figures were out I took the opportunity to do some crossovers, and try and use some lighting. I'm quite happy with the results but obviously there's still room for more improvement. Do let me know what you think and if you have any tips.

That's all for now. Thanks for viewing!
