Heroes of Science action figures

Popular sci-fi action figures line store shelves by the dozens, but you won't find real scientists next to Jedi Knights and Klingons. That’s where the Heroes of Science action figures come in. The collection of famous scientists totalling 30 in all is based on real Star Trek toys, with 50 hours of Photoshop manipulation eventually creating a surprisingly authentic-looking ensemble. The creator limited the selection to those who were alive during the 20th century to keep things simple, but you’ll still see plenty of recognizable faces such as Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Alan Turing, and even Neil deGrasse Tyson. Unfortunately, you can’t buy any of the figures it doesn’t look like there are any plans to create them either but as the designer points out, "anything’s possible."
