The Secret Lives of Action Figures
by No_Name on
Have you ever wondered whether your toys come to life?
In the Russian ballet 'The Nutcracker,' by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, toys come to life and bring Clara into their magical world. I guess I kind of always thought that would be cool; which is why when I stumbled across photographer Marcos Minuchin's ' The Secret Life of Toys,' I thought it was brilliant. Minuchin is in the business of documenting the secret lives of superhero toys, and he does an exceptional job. Have you ever wondered what a Superman action figure does when you're in school? Or a Clone Trooper action figure does during an Economic Recession? Below are some of Minuchin's awesome pictures which are also available for purchase at ETSY and might make a pretty cool Christmas gift for your favorite geek.

While they are all adorable, my personal favorite has to be the image of the Joker holding a camera. The photograph reminded me of the cover of one of the most famous Joker stories in comics. Which one is yours?
