Just when you thought action figures were on the way out like Cabbage Patch dolls and VHS tapes, photographer Hot Kenobi gives them new purpose through his action figure photography. As such toys lost much of their appeal during the rise of cinema and virtual gaming, Kenobi found a way to refurbish these figurines in a playful yet pleasing display of fandom and photography. Much more compelling than real-life superhero battles, Kenobi's staged figurine fights highlight the immensely creative minds present in the geek world. Using some of the best superhero action figures, along with other pop culture icons, Kenobi creates enthralling and often humorous scenes that anyone with a love of pop culture can get behind.
Star Wars, Marvel, DC, and even Disney all make appearances in Kenobi's remarkably staged action figure battles. In fact, given the right artistic director, many would probably make excellent crossover films and comics. Thanks to Kenobi's amazing vision, no longer can anyone look at action figures as merely toys to play with. Rather, they're just another piece of fandom for nerds to take advantage of for everyone else's benefit. Gotta love geekdom.
