Photographic Plastic: X-Wing Luke and Gonk

by Bill Drewnowski

Bill creates a captivating moment with Luke and a Gonk droid that look like a deleted scene.

The first wave of The Black Series 6″ line still stands above all the other waves in terms of quality and value; Darth Maul, R2-D2, Sandtrooper, and Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) were all excellent figures and came fully equipped with lots of accessories.  A common complaint about later waves is that corners have been cut on this “definitive” collectors line, with frequently lackluster paint and accessories.

The Gonk droid is a custom 3D-printed model by Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries, a great little figure with articulated legs and a rusty paint job.

With this image I imagined Luke needing to bring a power droid to his stranded X-Wing, and it just won’t keep up the pace, so Luke is constantly looking back to check and complain.  I’m still a beginner when it comes to photographing action figures, so any time I get a pose to look the way I imagined it in my head is a win.
