If you’ve ever wanted your superhero action figures to come to life Toy Story-style, Japanese photographer Hot.kenobi feels your pain. But he actually did something about it.

The artist has taken his box of DC, Marvel and Star Wars toys and used an incredible eye for photography (plus a few special effects) to make those toys come to life in some positively stunning shots. From Hulk crushing a can to Ant-Man on the run to a full-on crossover where they're trying to play Cap's shield in a CD player (hee hee), Hot.kenobi has put together some truly clever scenarios.

Check out a sampling below, and head over to the artist's Instagram page for more.
