The best type of action figurines are the ones you don’t see coming. Like these of science greats by Russell Gawthorpe, also known as *datazoid on Deviantart. He spent about 50 hours digitally painting and Photoshopping the likes of Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Alexander Fleming, Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking onto Star Trek: TNG and Star Trek: DS9 figures, forming a perfectly coherent 20th Century Heroes of Science Action Figures fan art series.
