Artist's custom DC and Marvel figures are startlingly realistic

We frequently marvel at -- or else are unsettled by -- the uncanny realism of the figures from Hot Toys and other high-end collectibles companies, but they may have found a rival in artist Xiang Zhang.

Based in Shanghai, China, he works with 1/6th-scale models, creating photorealistic likenesses of Heath Ledger's Joker, Tom Hiddleston's Loki, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson and more. Make notes that Zhang is so skilled at repainting and implanting hair, that he's frequently accused of using Photoshop to fudge the final results.

Check out just some of his work below.
