Nice pickup! I've always preferred that costume better than the Jim Lee one.

I always thought that costume made Cyclops look like Racer X from Speed Racer

I meant the comic design. I know it's silver in the comics but I always thought it would look better in gold. It would match the rest of his costume and look better IMO.

Oh hell yes! I personally can't stand Lee's Cyclops or Storm costumes.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Something has always felt off about the anatomy proportions on this one to me. Legs too big for top and head a bit skinny also. It is probably just me, but I cant not see it when I look at this. The Cockrum costume classic is my personal fav for Cyclops.

[QUOTE=SDguy;6078253]Always loved the design, pose and paint on this piece. In person it's even better. I just randomly put in a max, didn't really think it would win, Ebay bid, yet, here we are!!

well, I was not planning on getting this (like it was for the past few Bowens I purchased) but I was following it for the heck of it, threw in a bid at the last minute and Phoenix arrived today. I always loved the character and to me this was one of the finest costumes that Dave Cockrum ever designed. I always wanted Bowen to do a nice 1/6 museum pose statue and maybe some other company will but until that happens I am happy with this one.

Love that Phoenix! Great score. I have the red version. Try lighting her from behind. The base absolutely pops with light.

I definitely will
I have noticed that it seems like both Phoenix statues do not go for some astronomical price like other Bowen statues have.
I’m thinking it’s because it did have a high production run
