Philosopher action figures

Troy Swain does action figures of his friends and Modern Man Philosophers.

Karl Marx action figure
Karl Marx

Here are his philosophers in color.

Somebody else had a similar idea but it looks like his were rendered in PhotoShop, not in 3D.

Also, something completely different via Troy: Visualjournalism.com, a professional site keeping track of infographics like Saddam's spider hole (it's worth it to start with the full background).

Actually, I didn't render the philosophers at all. They're made from Sculpey. After I carve them, I cast them and make an edition of five. They are between 5" and 8" tall.

Yes, I didn't mean "rendered" in the computer sense, I just meant yours are real 3D sculptures and his are only images.
