It’s always interesting to see artists creating anything inspired by pop culture, but Daniel “Retrogimmick” has taken this to a new level. He makes all sorts of action figures and while some of them may seem quite regular, others are hilariously unexpected. Some of them are not even what it says on the package!

"The idea came from me discovering the sort of underground culture of custom toys when I was much younger. It was something I tinkered with but didn’t devote a lot of time to. Then I discovered that people were making things like these and posting them on Instagram and other social media. I fell in love with it and decided to start making my own figures!” the creator told Fashion Life.

“I get inspired by anything I find to be entertaining, interesting, or funny. And the only important requirement is that it should not already exist as a toy and if I think that people who share my interest will enjoy it!”

Wow, ever have one of those moments when a forgotten childhood memory unlocks and an entire wealth of memories, feelings and nostalgia pops up? It's almost a little overwhelming for a second. I was a huge Punisher fan as a pre-teen. My late older brother loved Spiderman. It was a fun shared moment with him the day I found and shared this 2-3 book mini-story of Punisher getting mind jacked by "The Jacker" to kill Spiderman. I still have these books in a box somewhere--as well as my brother's old comics. 35 years later, and my brother has only been gone a couple years but what a fun little trip this toy just took me on. Anyway. Thanks for witnessing this moment. #griefprocessing
