These DIY pop culture toys make great gifts or crafts for hardcore gamers, avid movie-watcher or just those who always tune in to watch the latest episodes of Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead.

Although there are some fans who will go out of their way to collect all the official merchandise they can, these handmade toys can be inexpensively created. In addition to this, coming up with a design of your own truly shows your status as a fan, since the toy will be an original. These DIY toys make use of simple materials like paper, wood and yarn to bring some of the most iconic characters from TV and movies to life—with enough time, skill and patience, it's even possible to recreate the whole cast.
