It wasn’t until I was recently talking with my family that the origin of these photos occurred to me. Back when I was a little Trooper I would get grounded on a regular basis. I know, shocker. During these long lengths of grounding, while my parents were out for dinner, I would sneak out of my room with all my Star Wars, G.I. Joe, He-Man and Transformer figures and set up intricate scenarios and scavenger hunts for my parents to return to. This would ultimately end with a nice note saying “I am sorry.”
This served two purposes. First, I got to play with my toys while being grounded. But, the main goal, was a shortened sentence of being stuck in my room paying for my crimes. I guess you could say that is where I started my fascination with setting up my toys in new and interesting scenarios. Either way, I am having a blast doing it. Thank you for playing along with me.
