Tamashii Nations has revealed a revolutionary new way to photograph your S.H. Figuarts figures, turning even the most composition incompetent camera owner into a shutterbug.
Tamashii’s ACT Studio is a desktop-sized photo studio that includes a small backdrop system with a chroma key–think green screen–background and articulated arm. Figures are posed using the articulated arm, then photographed against the green screen with a phone. The associated ACT Studio app assists in masking out the green background from the photo, replacing it with any of a number of selectable backgrounds that put figures in the middle of their own action scene.
Tamashii’s ACT Studio follows the company’s tradition of producing display friendly accessories to enhance their S.H. Figuarts figures such as the Stage Act.4 display stands and Effects display parts. Release date and pricing information have not been announced.
