Old-School Action Figures In Modern Blockbuster Posters


The technology behind action figures, especially those cast in the likenesses of A-list actors, have come a long way since “Star Wars” kicked off the merchandising state we now live in. Now we have 3-D scans of actors shrunken down to fit in the palm of your hand, but that always wasn’t the case.

The folks over at Next Movie are serving up a reminder of just how far we’ve come with a new series of Photoshops that insert classic action figures in the posters of movies featuring the character. The result is a vaguely recognizable poster for “Star Wars” and a several other one sheets filled the plastic (sort of) likenesses of some of our most iconic characters.

Check out the rest of the action figures posters over at Next Movie!
