Winnie the Pooh. Winnie the Pooh. Willy nilly silly old nightmarish abomination! At least that’s how Scibor have imagined him with their new Winnie bust.
As you can see, this is not exactly the Winnie the Pooh we’re all familiar with from Milne’s classic stories. Scibor have created a far rougher version of the old character, with great fabric texture and stitch marks clearly visible. He’s like some sort of stitch-punk cyborg of living and stuffed animal.
The kind of dozy expression is something that makes me imagine him to be something of a bruiser. He could either not register you at all or try to smash you with one meaty fist.
We first saw this sculpt appear as a WIP back in May and it is great to see this fantastically demented bust get released. Personally, I’m hoping we see each of the characters get this treatment. There is a theory that each of them represents a different mental health issue, that could be a good place to get some inspiration.
Do you like Scibor’s Winnie? How do you think the rest of the characters would look?
