Some superfans recreated Andy’s bedroom from Toy Story and it’s brilliant

There are film fans who go beyond the call of duty, and then there are those who go to infinity and beyond.

You shouldn't need us to tell you which camp the the team behind Tumblr account The Pixarist fall into. 

Putting all other Toy Story fans to shame, Morgan McCrew and his, erm, "crew" have spent two years recreating the sets from the third film in the saga, on a budget that belies its incredible lookalike detail.

And if you want to know the piece-de-resistance of this marvellous DIY project, it's Andy's Room, which is so impressive it might as well have been shipped box by box from San Francisco.

To see just what a stunning job they've done, click through the gallery below.

    Sunnyside Daycare

    The 'backpack cubby' that those excitable tykes rampage past in the daycare centre has even been recreated. Save for a lick of blue paint, it's pretty spot-on.

    Molly's bedroom

    'I had a blast recreating the books on her shelf,' writes McCrew. 'Palmy Pam sounds like an awesome read.'

    Andy's room

    'When my friends and I began recreating Toy Story 3 in late 2011, we knew that we would have to create a full scale Andy’s room. I mean, let’s face it. You can’t successfully recreate Toy Story 3 without a realistic looking Andy’s room.'

    Down to the whiteboard

    'We tried incredibly hard to make sure that every little detail was captured. For example, there is a white board next to Andy’s desk that we, for the most part, replicated perfectly.'
