Shelter Island’s resident toy photographer and South Ferry captain Matt Rohde, aka @x_captain_kaos_x on Instagram, has created another jaw-dropping collection of Star Wars themed toy photography. When we last saw Rohde, who now has over 24,800 followers on Instagram, he was counting down to the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens with daily toy photos. Now, just as the film is released on DVD and Blu-ray, he’s sent his 6-inch stormtroopers to war.
Check out the unbelievable pictures below. Rohde uses minimal digital effects, and all that smoke and debris is the real thing. A proud combat veteran of the Gulf War, he knows what an actual battlefield looks and feels like, and he brings us right there with his Imperial troops.
