Tech Troopers: Recreating iconic images from the life of Bill Gates

Tech Troopers

Like many TechRepublic readers, I’m a big Star Wars fan. I recently stumbled upon a great deal on Star Wars action figures and bought a bunch of them. Thinking it would be fun to photograph these action figures in humorous situations, I began experimenting with different scenarios involving computer hardware and dubbed the series Tech Troopers.

Eventually, I got the idea to use the action figures to recreate iconic images from the life of Bill Gates. It turned out to be quite a bit fun, and I decided to share some of the humorous images with the TechRepublic community.
