Hot Toys Iron Man Mark VI Sixth Scale Figure - Photo by Daniel Picard

Based in Ottawa, professional photographer Daniel Picard combines work and play in his series ’1:1 Toys – When the Toys Come to Life.’ But before you ask how Dan got the opportunity to meet Tony Stark, look again…

Featuring figures from Sideshow, Hot Toys, and ThreeA Toys, Daniel shoots his (mostly) sixth scale collection on location just like he would with human models. With careful planning, thoughtful staging and a little bit of Photoshop magic, the final images capture lifelike scenes that range from charming to mind-blowing. Here are a few of our favorites!
