Man Repaints Harry Potter, Twilight, LOTR Dolls To Spectacularly Realistic Effect

where does he get those wonderful toys


[View All on One Page]

Have you ever been really excited to pick up an action figure or collectible doll only to look at the face and go, “meh?” (Except for that Tom Hiddleston/Loki doll, good god.) While the creators of these figures usually spend a lot of time coming up with something that looks similar to the actor who played the part, they’ve got nothing on Noel Cruz. He painstakingly repaints the faces of some already pricey dolls (Hot Toys, Tonner, etc.) to give them the realistic look we all wanted in the first place. If you like what you see, you can try and commission one from him but prepare yourself – 12 inch dolls start at $1000. He does a lot of pop-culture work but take a look at what he’s done with the characters from Harry Potter, Twilight, The Lord of the Rings, and more.
