The 18 Most Realistic Action Figures

Not every movie and TV character-related action figure is a work of art. In fact, some are downright disastrous. But every once in a while, a master toymaker comes along and creates an action figure that bears an uncanny resemblance to its actual on-screen thespian counterpart. As we anticipate a whole new line of swivel-arm battle-gripped warriors with the release of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (that look a bit like Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum), here are 18 action figures that are maybe even a little too good.

1. Ash

Evil Dead Toy Ark / Universal

Bruce Campbell as "Evil Dead" hero Ashley J. Williams, S-Mart Employee and Demon-Wrecker. Hail to the King, baby.

[Get it!]

2. The Baroness

The Baroness Infinite Hollywood / Paramount

Sienna Miller as The Baroness in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra." A hot action figure for many a young man's first crush.

[Get it!]

3. Black Widow

Black Widow Aftimes / Marvel

Here's one that's maybe a little bit too good. Which is the toy and which is Scarlett Johansson? (Is that a weird question?)

4. Hannibal Lecter

Hannibal Lecter Cool Toy Review / MGM

An action figure that would meet even the ultra-snobby high-class standards of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

5. Hannibal Smith

Hannibal Smith MWC Toys / Fox

Hannibal Smith loves it when a ... toy comes together.

10. Luke Skywalker

Hot Toys / Lucasfilm Hot Toys / Lucasfilm

Ten points to all of you who know this outfit is referred to as "Bespin Fatigues." Yes, clothes make you tired in the "Star Wars" universe.

Man of Steel / Warner Bros.

You'll believe an action figure can fly. Henry Cavill is our new "Man of Steel."

14. Snape


Who wouldn't want to add Alan Rickman to their action figure collection?

It's only logical that a Spock action figure would be designed with detail-oriented precision.

16. Starbuck
