A new company named Bigfoot Valley, located in Alhambra, California, recently began producing well-made, sturdy, humorous but surprisingly accurate-appearing Bigfoot figurines. Customers obtaining these creations will be rewarded by finding exacting details on these Sasquatch items, which are all hard-resin models.
Additionally, the stands for these creatures look like knots or bumps from trees, and assist in the overall fine presentation of these pieces.
I have the Wildman, Baby, and Iconic Bigfoot figurines, and am quite pleased to add them to the cryptozoology museum. The realistic Wildman, with his outstretched arms, makes for an impressive Sasquatch replica, standing almost 9 inches tall on his nicely molded naturalistic platform.
Bigfoot Valley’s sculptures are the ideal gift for yourself or your favorite Bigfoot fan, for the researcher who enjoys a good reminder of the quest for your office or home. Pick up one or a few of these, and notice how well they go with your collection of Bigfoot track reproductions. These light-hearted Sasquatch replicas from Bigfoot Valley are highly recommended.
Below are the selections now carried by the company. Please note, they can mix and match varied scenes in filling combinations you might desire on one base. As you can see from the following, some figurines are perhaps to humanoid-appearing, but the different choices allow you to obtain the ones that most appeal to your own personal theory for the alignments of Sasquatch.

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations.
