October Thing-a-day, Day 2: Minifig action

Star wars!
Here is another shot for my motion assignment. For lighting, I used an incandescent desk lamp through a few sheets of tissue paper, with a black light to highlight the light saber. To make the motion smoother, the minifig’s arm was loosened by rubbing down the plastic with sandpaper and then coating it with oil. A piece of thread was clamped between the figure’s hand and saber to give something to hold onto. Photo of the setup is here.
