Me too. I am selling no more.

Talking about the greatness of Bowen Designs; in one of the most popular facebook groups, there is a poll asking for the best Thor statue ever produced. Surprisingly, Action Thor is sweeping the floor with the competition. It is surprising because the group is mainly constituted by 1/4 scale collectors. Even with its smaller size, Spinning Hammer Thor is the most praised statue by far. Sideshow's and XM's are not coming close.

I have the Bowen Thor and I'm never letting it go!

That SS Thor is amazing as well but imagine Action Thor in 1/4

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

I feel the Museum Classic Thor is the best, Spinning Hammer is awesome if displayed alone tho. Had it sold it.

I think I agree with Vecchio - I think the Thor Museum is a shade superior to the spinning hammer Thor. Just a shade. Like 9.7 > 9.6 greater

That Modern Cable is a beaut!!!! Always liked that piece, waited couple years to find a deal on him, ended up caving for the Classic action. Bowen's top pieces rival any company.
