Chris Neff has a piece of PVC with rubber around the top edge that he uses for a holder for the top.  He's working on a BK in the video but it may give you some ideas. https://sites.google.com/site/yophosis/spin-tops-101/clean-the-bearings

My special trick is owning a shop press  >:D , but without one you may try heating it. Aluminum has a higher coefficient of thermal expansion than steel, so the tip should become lose if you heat it enough (I haven't try it myself).
The other tip is to hammer stronger  :P I have a wooden block with a hole where I can place the tip so the wood holds the body of the top. Then it's easy to hammer hard. Instead of a screwdriver I use an Allen wrench.
It went in, it should be able to come out!

I ordered some replacement tips since my QSH's tip has seen better days but no matter how much I pound on it with a screwdriver it doesn't appear to be getting loose the way my Grande did. Are there any good tricks for removing the tip on the QSH?

Great to hear it! I've got a son now - he's 18 months old. Depending on his nap schedule I might bring him along so take in the festivities.  :)

The search for tuoluo statues gave me other hits.

This is from a custom manufacturer of "character sculptures" from China, Hanbo Sculptures:





You can see several other nice examples of spintop sculptures that they have made: http://www.hbtdc.com/news/hyzx/4083.html

This is from Jinan, China:





Another for sale by Quyang Wanshuo Sculpture Co:





And another installed in park in China:
