2017 Statue Awards Coming Soon!



BOOM! POW!
The 2017 Statue Awards are only weeks away!


Voting will go live in early January!!


Best Small Scale Statue (1/9 Scale and under)
Think Koto Artfx+ and Iron Studios' 1/10 Art Scale series...there are some impressive statues to choose from here. These statues are definitely no small potatoes...

Best Medium Scale Statue (1/8 to 1/6 Scale)
Although Bowen is not currently making statues, some people will still refer to this category as the "Bowen Scale". Many companies are still thriving in this scale, like Kotobukiya , Tsume, DC Collectibles, Kinetiquettes, Tweeterhead, and Weta.

Best Large Scale Statue (1/5 to 1/4 Scale)
Considered by many collectors as the marquee category, this category will consider pieces such as Sideshow's Premium Format Figures and Comiquettes, XM Studios, Blitzway, Pop Culture Shock, Prime 1 Studio and many others.

Best X-Large Scale Statue (Over 1/4 Scale)
The ever-growing 1/3 scale figures are starting to occupy more and more of our display shelves, so this category gets more and more exciting each year. This category also includes those other overly large pieces like the Prime 1 Transformers (even though technically their scale is smaller than 1/4) are included in this category).

Best Bust (Any Scale)
New to the 2017 Awards is the Best Bust category. Busts occupy a unique zone of the collectible hobby and deserve special attention. That's why this year we are separating all busts, no matter what size, into their own category!

Best Gaming Statue (Any Scale)
Many of us spent at least some of our free time gaming, whether online with some friends or an immersive single player campaign. The characters and stories of these games have become meaningful parts of many people's lives...that's why these statues deserve special recognition. 2017 will mark the inaugural Best Gaming Statue award!

*note* There is some overlap with the gaming statues and some of the other categories. It is entirely possible that the same statue could win Best Gaming Statue and one of the other categories above.

Statue of the Year
The winners from each of the above categories will be entered into a Statue of the Year tournament. This year's Statue of the Year tournament will be a single round, winner-take-all style!

Best Statue Company
Every year it seems that new, exciting companies join the hobby to compete with the industry stalwarts. Quality and design are continually being pushed to the forefront of the hobby, making this a great time to be a collector! The best statue company should be chosen based on quality of product, creativity in design, customer satisfaction, quality of customer service, and just who makes the coolest stuff in general.

Critic's Pick
This year will also mark the first ever Critic's Pick award (name subject to change), where our voting panel will also reveal our personal choice for best statue of 2017.

~~~~~~~~~~

With that said, now is a good time to clear up a few questions that are bound to arise:

1. Why isn't Statue X a candidate?

For various reasons, we want the event to run in early January. Since we all have day jobs, that means we need some time in December to prepare behind the scenes. For this reason, we cut off eligibility at December 25th...so statues had to start shipping before that time. Statues released after December 25th are considered for 2018 Awards (they are not forgotten!).

2. My favourite statue is eligible, but isn't nominated, what gives?

When our candidates are released, please remember these are just the statues that WE feel were the best for the year. YOU can still vote for whatever statue you want, provided it was released between December 26, 2016 and December 25, 2017. Ensure the statue you want to vote for is licensed and meets the criteria of the category, otherwise your vote will be wasted.

3. How do I vote?

Anyone who either (a) 'Likes' the Facebook page (HERE) or (b) is a member at StatueForum is eligible to vote (both are free, so no reason not to be eligible). Voting links will be posted when the event goes live.

Thank you!

How can a statue that has yet to be released win statue of the year?
