An artist is auctioning on eBay a Wonder Woman doll he purchased and repainted to create an uncanny replica of Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who will play the superhero in an upcoming 2017 spin-off film.

Noel Cruz purchased a 19-inch action figure of the Batman v Superman star and replaced its plastic hair with a new wig, and added a material belt and Princess Diana’s lasso, according to the blog Io9, which first reported on Cruz’s work. He then painted the doll to make it look like the real-life actress.

His one-of-a-kind repaint is currently auctioning off on eBay for $1,675.

Cruz, who is highly regarded among collectors and artists, is most recognized for creating detailed and realistic character- and celebrity-based dolls, according to his website. He calls himself one of the most “versatile & distinguished repaint artists in the doll community,” and among his past works are dolls that look like Cher, Beyonce, Audrey Hepburn and Angelina Jolie-Pitt.
