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

Not gonna lie. I feel as a primary 1/6th collector that these companies abandoned us and this hobby has suffered. K brothers ditched and Sosa m.i.a. The downfall of Bowen and Koto screwing the pooch. Good thing there is a vast library no scale can match. I still need a great Phoenix and Nightcrawler badly tho. Extremely disappointing to say the least, but those years were special as a collector no doubt.

Mr. Sinister a grail hands down and still the best today. He will be the main villain coming up with X-MEN 97 I believe.

Bishop another grail with presence and an awesome base. I will say the teeth cold use some detail,but I digress. Probably the best Bowen X-Men hero statue along with Jean Grey and Clear action Iceman.

God bless true 1/6th collectors out there. Thanks again Shogun!!!

good 1:6 statues are a treat these days. Which is so strange, because they were the norm and 1:4 scale was the next big thing a decade or two ago. Now 1:4 scale is old news, and 1:3 has taken the place of 1:4 and 1:2 scale statues are the now the next big thing.

Randy always said that the big pieces take up so much space he would rather produce smaller scaled statues (similar to the old kits he used to build and collect), which allows for more to be displayed. He had a different mindset than the companies of today.

When i look at these primarily hand sculpted BD gems, there is not as much detail as larger scaled pieces that are digitally sculpted, but in many cases they feel more alive and have more soul then pieces sculpted with a apple computer, a mouse and a digital printer. Sure my favorite statue of all time is the new Prime 1 Predator that was made digitally and the details and likeness is off the charts, i appreciate traditional hand sculpted pieces more, for what they are and how they were made.

this 1:7-1:6 scale is my favorite scale. I feel you can wrap your head around them much easier than later scale pieces and they are MUCH easier to photograph.
