2010 GTA: Vinyl Toy Of The Year

It feels like vinyl took a backseat to resin in 2010. Maybe it was the sheer number of different resin figures that were released, but it felt like there were a fewer big name vinyl releases in 2010. But there were still several great vinyl pieces released last year...including these 5. 5. Ollie the Twitterrific […]

2010 GTA: Male Articulated TOTY

As we wind down our look back at the year of 2010 in toys, we seemed to have reviewed a larger percentage of those highly articulated figures. (You can't really lump them all in as 1/6th scale as Tonner's figures are much larger) We've already looked at the ladies, so now it's time to look […]

2010 GTA: Female Articulated TOTY

The Female Articulated Toy of the Year category wasn't that difficult to narrow down, as we didn't really review that many 1/6th scale or above female figures this past year. And one company pretty much dominated the field. 5. Alice Kingsleigh (Tonner) If you were going to collect Tonner's Alice in Wonderland, you probably would […]

2010 GTA: Resin Toy of the Year

If I had to choose one trend that really went big in 2010...it would have be resin. A number of artists released their own small run resin series (they're a lot cheaper than vinyl to make) and a number of companies went the resin route. I picked out five of the top resin figures that […]

2010 GTA: Best Toy Line

How do we qualify what a "Toy Line" is? Well, you have to have multiple releases of the same series of figures. Not exactly blind boxed, as we've covered that already. But they need to be a strong cohesive group so that you're interested in collecting ALL of them. 5. Star Wars Mimobots (Mimoco) Mimoco […]

2010 GTA: Best Blind Box

Ahh...the blind box. Love them or hate them, there are plenty of blind box series out there. Most companies have their very own platform toy. Artists work their magic on the platform. The designs are often given various ratios and sometimes secret chase figures are included. But the main draw of the blind box...is that […]

2010 GTA: Artist of the Year

Choosing only a handful of artists from a fairly large community of super talented folks might be the most difficult task I have in our Golden Toy Awards. Yet it must be done...so here are five artists that really excelled over the past year. 5. Mad Joe Customizer (Overkill Creations) Even though he has customizer […]

2010 GTA: Customizer of the Year

While there's often crossover between "customizers" and "artists", customizers are the masters at taking a platform - any platform - and putting their artistic stamp on it. In a genre of art/collecting/toys that is constantly changing, it seems like many more artists are doing more customs. Here's our top 5 customizers from the past year. […]

2010 GTA: Best Sculpting

Good sculpting spans across platform and material. Are you looking at a good facial sculpt? Is there a pose that stands out from the pack? Are the sculpting details just outstanding? Well, I think we've amassed all of those with these top 5 picks. 5. Henry Jones, Sr. (Sideshow Collectibles) I know a lot of […]
