2006 Toy Awards: Best Sculpting
Sculpting work is often under appreciated...so we give the sculptors their just due. We've chosen 3 of the more intricate and/or interesting pieces of the past year.
#3. Buzz Carney from Carnival Cartoons
Eric Nocella's sculpting work on Buzz Carney was lauded by collectors as being one of the year's best. He took one of Jared Deal and Garnet Syberg-Olsen's characters and sculpted an amazing likeness.
#2. Mr. Bumper from STRANGEco
Two layers of intricate sculpting work was done on Jim Woodring's Mr. Bumper. Not only is there a ton going on with the figure's cowl, but when you remove that...the base figure is also amazing.
#1. 12" Darth Maul from Sideshow - WINNER!!
Oluf W. Hartvigson has worked his magic sculpting another spectacular Star Wars figure for Sideshow. Darth Maul was the cream of the crop from a company that prides itself on realistic sculpting work.
