Many movie franchises provide collectable action figures and dolls these days in an attempt to generate further revenue over box office success (or failure). Most of these aren’t what you would call ‘collectables’, and look more like cheap knock-offs than official merchandise. Manufacturers spend a lot of their time on the moulding process of such creations and very little on airbrushing or paint jobs. In an attempt to add a more realistic look, Noel Cruz painstakingly repaints the faces of these action figures and dolls. The artist also offers the possibility of purchasing some his creations, starting at a whopping $1000 for the 12” dolls.
