42 Terrific Toy Sculptures

From Action Figurine Sculptures to Massive Toy Aliens

— November 7, 2013 — Art & Design
While toys are often regarded as simple objects that little children play with, these terrific toy sculptures are here to demonstrate that these ordinary items can be transformed into magnificent miniature structures.

While architectural design is often related to large-scale buildings, these terrific toy sculptures are showcasing that similar architectural techniques can be indeed used on smaller scale structures with the use of creative plastic material. Showcasing that simple children's toys can be morphed into abstract visual designs, these terrific toy sculptures are changing the way people ordinarily perceive toys and their intended use.

From Sci-Fi crayon sculptures to life-size video game characters, these terrific toy sculptures are offering adults the unique chance to have fun with toys in a much more inventive and structurally detailed way.
