I wonder how much one of his statues would cost now if he was still around?

I think my classic Thor and Cap were about $200 each. Busts were around $60.

His pieces are timeless and I'll cherish my collection forever.
Ditto that. Will probably be some of the last pieces I would ever sell.

Back when I was buying lots of Bowen, as the rolled out, I would store all my boxes inside of 2 closets I have in my office. By the time I started winding down & near to where Randy began closing up shop, I ran out of storage room & just stacked my last few in my tool room. I know the last couple of Bowen statues I bought by what boxes I have laying around. The last few BD statues I purchased were - Son of Satan bust, Nova Modern fs, Wendigo fs, Ghost Rider JB fs, Dracula fs, Frankenstein fs, Hercules limited fs, Spiderman fs, Retro Hulk fs & Terrax fs. I remember paying around $200 for each maybe Wendigo costing a bit more.

Realy loved and still love the bowen line
Been collecting his statues and busts since the year 2003 or so.
As i am living in holland it always was a litle harder to get them.
i Had a cousin of mine who lives in washingto became a member of the bowen site just so i could buy the exlusive statues and busts through him.
Always felt like a litle child ones the box finaly arrived to me and i could open it haha.
every ones in a whille i check this site hopping to find theres news on randy that he is going to start again but i ques this will be a longshot (love this bust ) haha.
i remember that this site was manly in to bowen these days
anyways still enjoing my bowen collection of 210 busts and 72 fs.
some times i still can get a pretty good deal on a holland 2nd hands site for a statue.
cheers

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.
