If you get the action Juggernaut, you will be thrilled. It is an amazing piece! It is a little smaller and also looking down; but the anatomy is better proportioned and the paint app is a little brighter and better applied than the Koto's. The Shifftlet Bros and Randy did a phenomenal job. Although the piece was done in 2005 and it is almost 10 years old, it is a timeless piece of great craftsmanship and Art! Good luck, friend. I have my fingers crossed for you.
Thank you, bro. I have nothing against those who liked the Koto Juggernaut. I really don't. In the pics, I really thought the anatomy proportions wouldn't bother me that much. I was wrong. I still might get one in the future (with the right price), but I'm in no hurry to add it in my collection.

Bowen Action Juggernaut Painted Statue VS. Kotobukiya Juggernaut Fine Art Statue

Who wins?
My answer: Bowen Action Juggernaut Painted Statue

I'm not partial toward Bowens but in this case, Bowen wins.

JP, did I miss your video link sonewhere buddy?

Glad to see and read a 'healthy' constructive debate as to what Juggers in some people's opinion is their personal favourite.

I might be looking also to get Koto's as well.

No, I haven't got to it yet. I will eventually but I can vouch for both. They are awesome pieces of art! Looking at them on my shelf right now.

While I own the kotobukiya juggernaut, and the paint application is great. I do believe that the Bowen colors are better.

Bowen

I like the Bowen better but the Koto one is a far superior sculpt to the Bowen one. I also like the paint apt better on the Bowen. If the Bowen one was sculpted by Erick then it would have been the best of both.

I agree. Plus I'd like the helmet on his head put on permanently.

I did appreciate the fact that the helmet is removable. Did not know that before.

A nice enough piece, but I slightly prefer the Bowen.
I want a Juggernaut statue and thatís my issue with the Kotobukiya...frown lines on the helmet?! I always wanted the Bowen but in more recent months noticed he looks like he has 10 rings on his fingers instead of just one brass knuckle type thing around his knuckles. Minor stuff but it all just bugs me. The new Sideshow one is pretty cool but a little big and definitely more than I want to pay for a statue at this point but Juggy is definitely a favorite of mine.

Koto Juggy is way better IMO. Didn't buy it because it was too small.
