#DTA2019 Showcase: BEST PRODUCTION SCULPT

And while the voting has since ended, I'd still want to take a look and acknowledge the finalists chosen for "BEST PRODUCTION SCULPT" in the 2019 Designer Toy Awards, which "recognizes a singularly outstanding sculpt for a production toy. This award celebrates a sculpt that captured the likeness of the artist's concept and transformed it into a 3-dimensional object."


Collectibles featured here today are based on this listing, with this being a Closed Pane Voted category. Th Winner in this category will be announced at the DTA Awards during Five Points Festival 2019 (June 1-2)!


"BABOBOT" is the creation of Thai toy designer Danai Seneesaowaluk of "Bakumbaa"-fame, with this mechanism-incarnation slightly stepping out of the Bakumbaa Tribe (likened to Marvel's "Black Panther" technology with Wakanda, IMHO :p).

"BELFRY THE DEMON BELL KAIJU" from Brandon Leach AKA "Motley Miscreations" (www) was borne of a successful Kickstarter campaign.
