If you know anything about me, you know that I take toy collecting pretty seriously. I’m pretty picky about what toys I’m willing to shell out for and it takes an exceptional product for me to spend my money on it. That is probably why I’m not too much of a fan of the Tonner Doll’s collectible dolls because even though they are made to resemble a certain actor or character from a movie or television show, they rarely do. Most of the time, the actual product never looks like the picture and the less than spectacular facial sculpts are masked by even less great paint. Well, I guess it takes an artist of Noel Cruz’s caliber to really bring out the potential of these mediocre dolls. Noel has done some really remarkable work by custom painting Tonner dolls to look more like the actor/character that they present. He has put his personal touch on Tonner Dolls for Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. If you’re interested in his skills for your collection of dolls, you can commission him for a cool $1,000 a pop. Wow.

Hit the jump and check out some of Noel’s impressive work.
