Totally agree, huge Tweeterhead fan, chad even stated he is trying to be the Bowen of DC. Bowen has a 5 year lead in a few years if Tweeterhead keeps up this up I may have to flip these two for favorite.

Yowsers! I had no idea the old gal was going for that much. I paid $135 when she first came out at a LCS that I pre-ordered from (a rarity then for me). Guess I lucked out on that one, but I do love me some Carol Danvers / Ms. Marvel. I know it's those Dave Cockrum costume designs like Storm, Ms.Marvel and Phoenix

The other thing I noticed about a lot of bones statues with high prices on eBay is that the sellers are charging outrageous shipping fees also.

I noticed a seller was selling the colossus statue and charging over $50 to ship. I owned that statue at one point in time and unless you were shipping it overseas or to Canada there is no way it would be $50 to ship that statue and less you were doing an overnight delivery.

yeah back in the day the trick with fee bay was to up the shipping cost because the final eval fee did not include the shipping charge, but they charge the 10% on shipping too so it makes no sense. SO if it takes $25.00 to ship, ebay take $2.50 so you have to eat that $2.50 since it costs $25.00 to ship

Pick up where you left off doing obscure awesome pieces nobody dared to touch in the past
Iím afraid that would be way too narrow from a business model perspective. If BD opens up the business again he will need to strike a balance with collectors that are both new and those that have an existing collection. Heíd have to do the classic characters again as it would draw in new collectors into the 1/6 market. I am sure he wouldnít redo the very obscure characters that have already been done but would likely mix in the rare characters net yet done with the more blue chip characters. Spidey, Cap, Hulk, Iron Man, etc would have to be part of any new line and I donít think it would hurt old collections at all Ė you simply buy the new one if you prefer it over an old one in your collection and sell the old to fund the new.

If Bowen comes back? Yes, your existing pieces will go down in value if a superior version is produced. Until then, up, up, up

I agree with subby - I do think that Randy Bowen would do a mix of characters. Even though he really likes the classic characters and the classic look, not all consumers do so I am sure that Randy would do a mix.
