These Perfect Custom Toys Were Based on Classic Atari Video Game Art

If there ever was a strong case for a false advertising claims, it would involve the box art that accompanied the countless video games released in the '80s. The artwork rarely matched the visuals in the actual game, but instead of taking companies like Atari to court, artist Dan Polydoris has turned the characters on the boxes into actual toys.

These four are actually Dan's latest creations, taking his inspiration from games like Berzerk,Space Invaders, and Yars' Revenge. His Missile Command figure is particularly wonderful, perfectly capturing the man behind the control panel and his loveable missile sidekick. [Dan Polydoris via Technabob]
