Artist Noel Cruz is considered to be one of the most versatile and distinguished repaint artists in the doll community, and after you see his work, you'll know why.

The Filipino artist repaints dolls that were designed to represent celebrities, transforming them into a true work of art that makes them look so life-like you could easily mistake them for the real thing, at least in photographs.

In the image above, you see the original action figure, and on the right, that's not a press photo of Gal Gadot, that's the work of Cruz!

It’s hard to imagine that it’s really the same toy, but the only tweaks Cruz made to the original figure was the replacement of the plastic sculpted hair with a new wig, and the addition of a material belt and Diana’s trusty lasso. It sold on eBay recently for $1,700.
