Anything can be a toy if you're brave enough.

That’s what my GF calls me, so I guess even people can be toys.

I don't think anyone would consider a Sideshow Statue a toy (though feel free to fight me on this) because you can't play with it in any capacity. That said, I think the line is very thin. Static models can count as both statues and toys if they are made out of the right material. I think it depends on durability.

It is mostly Spider-Man themed, but I'd love to talk cosplay, lightsaber commissions, and countless other topics.

I was say no based on pure definition as statues are not designed as toys but both would be better grouped as collectibles for closer similarity.

I mean, I have a statues of nerd stuff (including Godzilla), unopened Masters of the Universe toys, and Lego sets that are spread out around my house and I call them all toys, or more specifically "Toys I use as display pieces" but that's just me.

They sell them at Toy Stores and Hobby Stores. So as the poll says, maybe?

IMO, statues kind of denote something that is a premium piece akin to Sideshow Collectibles and resin kits. The vast majority of my dinosaur collection are static pieces, but I don't really think of them as statues as much as I do figures. I consider all statues static pieces but I don't know if I would consider all static pieces as statues. So, to answer the question, something that is specifically denoted as a statue I don't think I would count necessarily as a toy.
