Somehow overlooked this one. I love the Tommy gun addition. It looks bad ass!

I’ve been trying to decide on what direction I wanted to take my Batman collecting in recent months because of the shear volume of goods I had to focus myself decided that I could only buy one 1/4 scale representation of this character. Sucks but I just couldn’t do multiple Batman’s as I had already done that with Spidey and really got carried away. I’m only buying the super powers Tweeterhead line as they look to be able to fulfill my rogues needs that’s exciting .

I want to get 1:1 scale Batman cowl and I’ve got few accessories to boot and I have Iron Studios bats Vs Bane dio. So I finally bit the bullet and ordered XM Samuari Batman . I can say I’m not disappointed. Big complaints was it was not comic based but imo this version was a totally unique and a believable Batman. Very high tech looking and I’ve never had so much fun switching out parts to get diff looks. It was worth the money imo and I love it!

Negatives had paint blemish on base ( paint peeled off upon trying to clean a sticky residue ??? Not sure what or where it came from because I was first person to open this from the factory ) I was bummed about that . Also I didn’t like his bat belt I felt it was too skinny and not enough separation in colours. Last was unmasked portrait. It looked like he a major tan from all pictures I’ve seen it shouldn’t have . Really minor stuff aside from paint flaw.

I don’t think anyone would be disappointed with this statue .

A couple nice Bowen’s here. I love how these were specifically made to create a diorama with each other .

Bowen Enchantress & Executioner

Great pics of the XM Samuari Batman! You captured a lot of the small details I didn't notice in previous pics. Still not a piece for me, but I appreciate it even more.

Fantastic pics as usual!

I totally should have gone for that XM Batman. I thought it was too Samurai at the time, never realizing all of the switch-outs available.

Bowen Enchantress & Executioner always makes me a bit sad. They remind me of the end of Bowen Designs. Two amazing pieces. Bowen went out with a bang with some of his final pieces.

Thanks for compliments . I wanted to get updated pictures of my diorama series of statues I’ve been hunting for a while. Imo they are some of the best pieces in my collection and oldest in terms of Sideshow. The sculpting and paint quality was amazing for it’s time I wish they would get back to that kind of stuff. These little action sequences are very sought after in the collecting community and it’s easy to see why. The first I’m going to showcase is Sideshow’s very first release in the Vs. Series and a true classic from 2005. Sculpted by the Gore group it’s an amazing battle between two of Marvels most ferocious characters :
