Dramatic and Amusing Macro Shots of STAR WARS Figurines

Like most kids, when I played with action figures I would imagine these elaborate scenes and epic battles in my mind. My Star Wars action figures have since been put into a box and have been replaced by much cooler/pricier Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys 1/6 scale figures. But photographer Zahir Batin’s stunning series of macro shots using Star Wars figurines really has me itching to bust out my beloved box of old toys. Batin’s series ventures into both the solemn and the silly sides of the Star Wars universe. When you’re part of The Empire,  you're often in horrifying and tragic situations. Sometimes you have menial and mundane tasks. And sometimes, apparently, you get to go water skiing. Who knew?
