An Awesome 12 inch Figure Collector

Not long ago I discovered a blog of 12 inch figures and the work of the owner strike me in awe.

His name is Mick Baltes and I was impressed not only of his vast toy collection but his superb skill in creating life like diorama. Just take a look at the photos and you will know what I mean.


Bare in mind this is for 1/6 figures. Look at the details...


To top it off, Mick is under taking an Epic project in the setting of ROME. He even built a Rome set for it. Nothing was done digital!


It's no child play as the story will be done purely by toys.


I am sure by now you might be in awe as I saw his works.

I have the honor to have a one on one interview with this passionate and talented collector.


This exclusive interview will be out on the coming Sunday post so do look out for that!

Meanwhile visit his blog for more of his works.

@h4msterworld
Mick is a master indeed.

@KazeTora
Base on what he did, what you mention should be possible for him provided he has the time and is willing to.
