LOL! It is already packed up and ready to get over to the post office...but, to answer your question...yet, it is 1/7th scale (Bowen Fullsize statue scale) and if he were standing straight, he (the figure itself, not including the base) would be about 10.25 inches tall (give or take).

Sweet!!!

It's a GREAT piece.....

I often times wish that the actual FS of Nightcrawler was like the actual Mini statue, but I understand the 12 inch height requirements that are put out there for Bowen to adhere to, so I suppose that would explain it......

I any event, GREAT PIECE!!!!!

First of all I would like to thank Danno and the other artists who got involved on this project to help a fella artist in need at the time and say you guys definitely rocked it big time. Thanks for using what God gave you guys to help other people and congratulations as always a great paint job Danno.

Also in response for those who already email me or PM me regarding this piece, this piece in particular represents a lot for me. I sculpt it 7 years ago and once I got the opportunity, back in 2002, I putted a portfolio together including a casting and submitted it to Bowen Designs and I must to say it was a very good surprise that couple time later they released their Nightcrawler mini statue based on my designed. Yet, back in 2004, I was attending the San Diego ComicCon and I had the opportunity to met Randy Bowen in person and it was incredible and another surprise was just about to come, after a quick review on my portfolio he invited me to come to his booth next day and show off my stuff and when I pulled out my Nightcrawler he told me that he still having the Nightcrawler that I sent. I must to say that I was very impressed by his character, not to mention he was very polite and patience due his booth was very crowded, you know how it is, specially at San Diego ComicCon. LOL

So, that's the story behind this piece and it was a pleasure and I felt very honored.


Once again thank you for the kind words I am glad you like it.

Helder M.

I like the more sinister look of this sculpt. Danno's paints just make it look even better. Another kit I must get painted one day. Awesome work Danno another satisfied customer for sure. Helder do you have any more of these hiding somewhere ?
