Statue Collecting - The ABCs

Hello,
I'm fairly new in statue collecting and I'm looking to learn more. It's one of the reasons I joined this forum.

Some of the questions I have is how do you find out who out there is producing statues and what statues they are producing? I see I can find out some of those questions here, but are there others out there that aren't covered here?

How do you know when a new line is coming out? For example, DC Collectibles is starting a new line designed by Stanley Lau. The only way I knew that was because I accidently ran across it on Amazon as I was browsing statues just to see what was out there.

What are the current trends?

Frankly, I am so new at statue collecting I didn't even know what the scales were until I looked it up on wiki.

Is there a book? Trade magazine? Pod Cast? that I can buy/scribe to learn more on the ends and outs of collecting.

This forum should have everything you need. Scour the sections you are interested in. Trends vary and scale is the size you are trying to display. Ebay is a good source as well. More specifics would help.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

One simple rule. Collect what you like. I prefer Bowen statues since they are 1/6 easy to display and easy on the wallet and are the perfect comic book interpretations of that characters I read. But thats me someone may like the movie versions only. A lot of people like 1/4 size they say more detail. Tons to learn on this site
