He must have done pretty well in the divorce to be out of the game this long. Again, it all depends if he has another cash flow. Who knows.

Sure, I understand, but there's also much less risk on his end in terms of overhead.

This

As I browse my collection, 90% are other sculptors. It's all about the brand tho. He ran the operation and gave the limelight.

I really miss the consistent variety that matched up. We were very spoiled and I was a few years late. 2011

Agreed. Allot of Bowen pieces weren't his but he did some really great pieces. I remember with action Juggernaut the Shiflett Bros were fubaring it and Randy had to come in and save that piece. I'd love to see some 1/4 scale Bowen stuff.

spinning hammer thor and classic action black panther to name a couple. He wasn't perfect all the time, warpath for example, but he has way more hits than misses and when they hit they hit. I don't doubt his ability to carry a company off of his name and talent, but he could use some variety in sculptors...I bet he could manage to rope in a few from the old days if he wanted to.

I agree.

The mini Hulk statue that he sculpted is awesome. One of my favorite statues that I own. I wish it were 1/4 scale.

The K Bros did a crapload of great pieces for BD. Randy sculpted my two all-time favorite statues though, Classic Cap and Classic Thor.

They'd be the first ones I'd try to get back on the roster.
