Astonishingly Realistic Miniature Sets

Look closely. No, closer than that. Better – now take a second to digest just how lifelike these miniature sets are and pray you never have nightmares about giant, creepy Pikachu.
 
They're detailed; really detailed, making that homemade model of Tracy Island you cobbled together with your dad back in the day look like a gluey mess, and radiating a moody atmosphere and authentic grunge that would also put most Hollywood set designers to shame.
 
Aptly, Satoshi Araki, the self-titled ‘modeler of Japan’ behind these Styrofoam miniature sets has even found time to park up the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy in some of his lesser mundane works - scrutinize one even more you may well spot a poster or two featuring storm troopers - and that's not when adding a healthy smattering of evil looking Pokemon.
 
If not Gotham, he’s certainly the hero Japan deserves.
