Yeah...Randy himself said generally 1/7. If you look at some of the old statues the boxes actually state 1/8. I think people read 12" statue and assumed 1/6, but forgot to include the base. I just refer to it as Bowen scale...generally 1/7, some 1/8...I wouldn't even be surprised if there were a few closer to 1/6 in there.

Some of the busts were even more varied scale wise. Ghost Rider is way bigger than Namor for instance.

I can definitely agree about the busts. Some of them were more half statues than busts.

Speaking of scale, I wish the Dracula FS (my most wished for statue) wasn’t so wildly out of scale. He’s as big as Frankenstein Monster and just doesn’t look right, despite the fact he’s supposed to be 6’ 6” or something like that, in comparison to other Bowen FS statues.

Really bothered me too. Thatís a statue I was very much looking forward to but ultimately skipped due to the scale inconsistency and how itíd look in my monster collection.

I hear ya. I bought it, though, due to my love of Marvelís Tomb of Dracula series. I couldnít do without it.

I have it on the same shelf as Frankenstein Monster, but with a ToD #1 on an easel between them so the contrast isnít so pronounced. All my other Bowen FS monsters (Zombie, Man-Thing and Ghost Rider on his bike), and the Satana and Hellstrom MBs, are together on a separate shelf. Both shelves look great.

That sounds like itíd work and Iíd debated breaking it apart from the group as well but just couldnít bring myself to do it. If Randy ever does come back and a BIG IF he ever tackles Werewolf by Night I may reconsider it again as I still want my ToD representation and Iíll have justification for a second monsters shelf. For now the only version of Dracula I have is in the Sideshow Blade diorama where heís mid transformation in bat form.

Thatís a pretty cool one and Iíve contemplated buying it a few times. Keeping with your ďBIG IF,Ē I really hope Bowen does a FS Werewolf by Night. And even a classic version FS Blade.
