A artist has found an alternative use for old toys and dolls, transforming them into 'three-dimensional humanoid sculptures'.

From bordering on the bizarre to something straight from Guillermo del Toro's worst nightmares, the sculptures - created by Freya Jobbins - incorporate limbs and body parts from some of the world's most popular dolls and action figures to create models reminiscent of human faces.

Jobbins first embarked on her project as a comment on consumer culture, reports the Huffington Post.

"My work explores the relationship between consumerist ftishism and the emerging recycling culture within the visual arts," Jobbins explained.

Check out Jobbins' sculptures below, but proceed with caution, things are about to get strange...
