Summary

See your favorite pop culture icons like never before in this collection of humorous photographs featuring Sideshow figures.

Join celebrated photographer Daniel Picard as he explores what his favorite pop culture heroes and villains are up to when they’re not caught up in the battle between good and evil. This unique collection of meticulously composed images showcases a variety of comic book and movie icons in realistic and often hilarious everyday settings. Using fan-favorite figures from Sideshow Collectibles, Picard gives these classic characters a fresh twist, presenting them in perfectly arranged, to-scale environments that create believable scenes and tongue-in-cheek parodies. Among the gallery of memorable images are photographs of a Stormtrooper with a desk job, the Joker shopping for a Batman Halloween costume, and Harley Quinn taking a selfie. Featuring a foreword by Simon Pegg, an afterword by Kevin Smith, and an introduction from Daniel Picard detailing his one-of-a-kind take on pop culture parody, Figure Fantasy is a true treasure for fans, collectors, and photographers alike.
