Not A Bad Idea!: Heroes Of Science Action Figures

From geekology, Note: Larger version HERE, but be sure to check out the artist's site for a full-res version. He also explains his criteria for inclusion and why there's only one woman, no Bill Nye, etc.

"This is a series of conceptual action figures based on famous scientists by DeviantARTist datazoid. They would all look great locked in an epic battle on my living room floor. *imagines Tesla shooting a lightning gun at Einstein while Hawking backs over Schrödinger's face in his wheelchair*"

These little guys took between 40 minutes and 2 hours each, totaling around 50 hours of work.
The figures are all based on Star Trek: TNG and Star Trek: DS9 figures (primarily Odo from DS9, and Picard as Dixon Hill from TNG), and have been heavily modified in Photoshop using Liquify and a great deal of digital painting. Unfortunately, the figures aren't real. I wish they were.
Great job, I think the only thing they're missing are some SWEET ACCESSORIES. Every action figure needs accessories! Obviously, Schrödinger would come with a cat. And Jacques Cousteau -- he could have a submarine playset add-on! Oh God I could just think about this stuff all day.

While this is a cool idea the notion of actually owning those super boring toys of regular people is super boring. This dude's right... accessories! Like big bulky body armor accessories, to wear over the sweaters and tie-clips.

At least Oppenheimer gets a hat. Sheesh.
