What won’t be easy, your vote! This year has been amazing for us collectors…so many incredible statues to choose from…but, you can only nominate 1 per category!
This year we have made a few changes to the categories, so please read below to see what is new before you vote!
These are the categories you have been familiar with over the years, but this year these will be limited to comics and movie, and any 100% original concepts.
Fans choose the best in the following categories:
Best Small Statue – (1:8 scale and under) – think Kotobukiya ArtFx+, Iron Studios Art Scale, Royal Selangor limited editions, DC Collectibles, etc.
Best Medium Statue – (1:7 to 1:6 scale) – some examples include DC Designer Series, Marvel Premier Statues from Diamond Select, Weta’s Lord of the Rings series, Tweeterhead, Kotobukiya Fine Art series, and more!
Best Large Statue – (1:5 to 1:4 scale) – Sideshow Premium Format Figures & Maquettes , Iron Studios Legacy Replicas, XM Studios, PCS Collectibles are just a few examples of statue lines that qualify for this category!
Best X-Large Statue – (Over 1:4 scale or otherwise huge pieces) – Prime 1 Studio’s 1:3 and 1:2 scale lines, XM Studios’ Transformers, Sideshow Legendary Scale Figures, Weta’s Master Collection etc. are some examples of what is included here.
Again, the fans choose the best bust for the year. Busts of all shapes and sizes are included in this category, from the 1/6 scale minis to the monstrous life size.
Best Gaming Statue
Gaming statues have had their own special category for a few years now, and it gets more and more competitive every year! Gaming themed statues of any size belong in this category, and a fan vote will decide the winner. Unlike previous years, there will be no crossover eligibility…if a statue has a gaming theme, it will be here and nowhere else.
Best Anime Statue
Similar to the Gaming category, Anime themed pieces finally get their own category! The strength of this genre of the hobby has improved immensely over the past few years, and there are numerous companies producing high-end anime statues…this should be one of the most hotly contested categories, and you, the fans, get to decide the winner! Again, no crossover eligibility, anime statues will stay here.
No need for a write-in here…all companies will be eligible or your vote when the event opens!
A brand new award for this year, and hopefully the start of a new tradition. A panel of sculptors, artists, painters etc. in the industry will decide their choice for Statue of the Year. This vote will take place prior to the fan votes noted above, but will revealed at the end of the competition alongside the other winners!
Note that only statues released (i.e. shipped and in hand) between December 26th, 2018 and December 25, 2019 are eligible…make sure the statue you choose qualifies!
