Even though geeky hobbies are increasingly going digital or electronic, the action figure and scale model market has remained strong. You know what’s even more enduring? Our love for dinosaurs. But veteran toy designer and sculptor David Silva has yet to find a winning combination of the two, so he wants to fill the void himself.
In 2008, after making toys for the likes of McFarlane Toys, Hasbro and NECA, David began sculpting dinosaur figures under the company Creative Beast.
