Blown Away by the Dark Side

My take on the famous Maxell Tape ad photo from the 80s. The original was titled "Blown Away Man."

It's something I always had in the back of mind to do with the scale figures I shoot, but the concept hadn't come to me yet. Cleaning the shelves, I realized I had all the components I needed, including the stand-in for the speaker in the original shot, in this case, the melted Vader Helmet and stand.

I really dig the concept. That Maxell shot is iconic and I like your spin on it.
