A series of seriously awesome action figures by Deviantart user Datazoid:

These little guys took between 40 minutes and 2 hours each, totalling around 50 hours of work.

I like action figures. I have a small collection of them. I’ve noticed that you can buy Albert Einstein figures, Nikola Tesla bobble-heads and The Simpsons even brought out a Stephen Hawking figure based on his appearance in an episode. However, I thought it’d be really cool if there was an entire series of them, based on all of the people who’ve contributed to our understanding of the world and the universe it sits in.

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.

Thanks Michael!

    • I vote for Ada Lovelace, Jane Goodall, Clara Barton (medicine), Dian Fossey, Hypatia of Axandria, Margaret Mead, Florence Nightingale, Judith Resnik (well, she was an alum at my college).

  1. And Lynn Margulis? Irene Curie? Rosalind Franklin? James Watson and Francis Crick? Isaac Asimov? Charles Darwin? Johannes Kepler? Tycho Brae? And don't forget Srinivasa Ramanujan =).

  2. As much as I think all these guys made good contributions, just one woman? And that's Marie Curie? No recent entries? What about Nobel Prize winner Maria Mayer? Or Rosalind Franklin? Or Hedy Lamarr who helped pave the way for our precious wifi?
