One man's Manga is another man's Sal Buscema.

I guess - but I know Buscema's work on the Hulk... very well. To me, this doesn't represent Sal's work at all! Way too clean and cartoony - was he trying to go for a Buscema feel on this one? It seems he missed the mark.

For me, the mouth shape reminded me of Sal's Hulk. And the eyes are so well done on this statue. But you have to be super-close to see them. I would have preferred to take the pics in natural daylight (hence the Saturday ref) as it's hard to capture the green with the lights I have to hand.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

Who do you know at Marvel or Bowen Designs to get the statue so quickly in the UK? It was only released the 4th. I am just amazed!

Bowen must ship out to Sideshow and other Distributors before they released to the Public.

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

Face looks way to soft for my liking. Variant is a much better face sculpt imo.
