Resin Wiki is a database for us, the statue collectors, to have all the info we need at our fingertips.
Some time back, I felt helpful and decided to put an entire up-to-date list of Bowen Mini-Busts under the Bowen Designs wikipedia page. It took hours to pore through the archive pages and put all that info in order. I finally posted it up late one night. Well, apparently, Wikipedia finds such topics "too niche" to fit in with the rest of its info. That's where the idea for this site was born.
How often have you wanted to find every known statue of your favorite character or from your favorite sculptor? What about when you can't remember the edition size of a limited-run statue? Or are you new to the game, and just need to learn about the industry? Resin Wiki strives to be the end-all, be-all of statue information.
As you can also see, we're really new at the moment. We don't have a lot of content yet. This is part of the reason why I think it was important to make this site a Wiki and not just a normal website. The statue community is a passionate bunch, and I don't have every statue ever made. I can't do it alone. I need help from you. From all of you. Whether it is adding new info, reporting news in the industry, writing reviews on sculpts, correcting mistakes or building the spiderweb of category links, any help is good help.
This is a project for us and by us, and the more we put into it, the more enjoyment and education we can get from it.
Thanks for the help.
