Smile What is a Bowen GRAIL to you??? Share yours with the whole world!!!

Everybody has an opinion on what a "Grail Piece" is, or what it should be. But what do you think??
Feel free to express your opinion and to post proudly your Bowen Grail photos.

The way I would personally define "grail" is for a piece I would likely be very hardpressed to sell. Out of all the statues I have, i.e., Bowen, Sideshow, and so on, if I could to only keep one, it would be the Spidey bronze. Despite all the ups and downs of BD, this one remains untouchable, which says much for me as I have a tendency to sell many of my pieces after a few years to make room for newer ones.

I feel the same way. I tend to sell some of my stuff after awhile. but the ones I cannot find the heart to get rid of for one reason or another, I consider my personal grails.

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

Even though I don't own many BD pieces, I do have one piece that I consider to be my own personal grail. It is the Damian Hellstrom bust. This bust is one of the most well sculpted and beautifully detailed pieces I own and I do not plan on selling ever.

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

In the aftermarket, it's definitely the real bronze statues...but for many of us I think the retro Cable and the chrome museum Silver Surfer are definitive grails!




Runners up would be:

- Original museum Thanos w/ IG

- classic action Thor (w/ spinning hammer)
