    360 Revolutions

    One of the book elements that pleases me most is the 360 revolutions of each figure. This treatment is something that has never been attempted in a collectibles book, and it was a helluva lot of work. But I thought it was the best way to communicate the sense of handling and inspecting a figure (while limited to 2-dimensions).

    Anyway, As I was cleaning out my overloaded server tonight, I came across an old animation from a couple of years ago. Using the revolution photography I took of the highly-coveted Solid Box Superman (with Large emblems on both the chest and the cape), I created a little GIF animation. This was created with the actual photos that appear in the book.

    It's a little dizzying, but still kinda cool.

    That figure is such a thing of beauty, I could stare at it all day long....however, after feeling dizzy after just a few minutes of staring, methinks that is not such a good idea!

    This would be a fun feature to add to the Superman Gallery.

    I love that spinning Supes, somehow he should be incorporated into the Museum, maybe at the top of "his" gallery. But then you would have to do that with all the WGSH. Ben already has the pics, but I don't know how much work that would be
