As a veteran collector of sixth-scale figures, it’s my belief that I have a responsibility to display each of my collectibles in a way that captures a definitive moment. So I became a poser.

That word, “poser,” is burdened with a terrible stigma. Just thinking about it conjures fearsome visions of being ostracized by a sect of cool hipster college kids.

But in the world of sixth-scale figures, being a poser is the final step of a creative process. It’s a worthwhile endeavor that requires some extra thought and effort. And it’s not easy.

When I’m posing a figure, I’m tossing so many questions around in my head. Mostly I’m taking into consideration the character, but I’m also thinking of the way that the human body works. Even physical forces like gravity and movement come into play.

This column is for collectors. It’s an illustrated dose of sixth-scale goodness. Take from it what you will, and remember to have fun with it.

    He tells how he feels being a poser, but not how he does the poses. Did he use wires? What computer graphics program did he use for the light saber poses? Sideshow Collectibles did NOT ask the right questions.

    Beautifully done. Would love to know your secret to making the light sabers glow. I have your Commander Fox SDCC Exclusive if you want him. Never been removed from the box.

    This is not an article on how to be a poser, it’s an article on how to envy a poser. Poor article that does nothing but tease us folks who want to learn some tricks. zero stars.

    LOL False Advertisement, it says “How to be a poser” not “What I think of posing” And the lightsaber effect is easy if ya have photoshop… Ehow has a page on it and the rest is yours to do. ;)
