Japanese photographer hotkenobi reminds us all that action figures are meant to be played with–and in this case photographed. In these stunning pictures (mostly) superheroes and villains come to life, creating in many cases explosive action scenes worthy of a comic book action bubble! It’s the type of account that upon discovering it you will scroll through every single image and then wait semi-patiently for more to be posted. Which is where I am now so as I wait I selected my 10 favorite action figure photographs:
