Toy Archives on Flickr
October 29, 2006

I’m one of those people that once I get an idea in my head, it sits there gnawing away at me until I do something about it (I’m also fairly lazy, so the gnawing can last for years). So after my post about Flickr, I decided to go grab a bunch of old photos that I took in 2002 and do a few tests.

Now, these photos were taken with my first digital camera and I wasn’t that familiar with it at the time, so the quality isn’t great. Back in 2002 I had planned on updating all of ToyOtter’s figure archives with new photos and information, but a hellacious commute and tons of freelance pretty much killed that idea.

But I digress. Here is my first Flickr test: all three of Hasbro/Kenner’s lines based on the Warner Bros. DC Comic’s Cartoons: Batman: The Animated Series, The New Batman Adventures, and Superman: The Animated Series. These are by no means complete or comprehensive and contain a lot less information than my old archives. And I couldn’t figure out how to rearrange them chronologically in the order they were released. but the cool thing about Flickr is that I can go back at any time and modify these how I please. So sometime in the future this may be how all of our figure archives are made.

Leave me some comments and tell me what you think!

    Hmmmm… seems like Flickr’s thumbnail creator auto-crops the pictures gravitating towards the image’s center. So if you have tall, portrait-oriented images (like the ones you have), you sometimes wind up with headless shots.

    Will you be uploading your ToyBiz Iron Man collection (from the 90s) – the one you have on RTM? I still use that guide/archive to backtrack and complete my Iron Man collection.
