Japanese Photographer Brings Action Figures to Life with Stunning Images

The Osaka-based photographer -  Hot.kenobi enjoys using photography to bring his action figures to live. With his images, Hot.kenobi creates a universe where box office rivals DC and Marvel comics (sometimes Disney’s Star Wars as well) do everything from battling each other to living out fun and surreal moments. A majority of his compositions explode of the page with their movement, which is often supplemented by special effects and humor.

Whether it’s the Incredible Hulk smashing a can of soda, or Spiderman trying to ‘play’ Captain America’s shield on a CD player, these images bring out the colorful personalities of unlikely friends and foes.

We've selected a sampling of these incredible photos. For more, check out Hot.kenobi's instagram here. Enjoy!
