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.
Bruce Campbell as "Evil Dead" hero Ashley J. Williams, S-Mart Employee and Demon-Wrecker. Hail to the King, baby.
2. The Baroness
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.
3. Black Widow
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
An action figure that would meet even the ultra-snobby high-class standards of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
5. Hannibal Smith
Hannibal Smith loves it when a ... toy comes together.
6. Hans Landa
7. Harvey Dent
You make your own luck. And you're way lucky if you own this Harvey Dent action figure.
8. Jack Sparrow
Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Savvy, no?
9. The Joker
A fleeting moment from "The Dark Knight," captured forever in one sinister action figure.
10. Luke Skywalker
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.
You'll believe an action figure can fly. Henry Cavill is our new "Man of Steel."
12. 'Raiders' Nazi
Wait a minute ... why is this Nazi action figure okay? Probably because he got his face chopped off by a runaway plane propeller.
13. Rocky Balboa
Now you can make Rocky Balboa go as many rounds as you want.
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.
You may have forgotten that before Starbuck was a sexy tomboy blonde, she, er, he was Face from "The A-Team."
17. Superman (Again)
Now you can have Superman see through lead if you damn well want him to.
Remember, if big dude dressed in '80s punk chic asks you if you're Sarah Connor, you say, "Hell no!"
