That's cool! I didn't realize Bowen did Star Wars...I dig that antique bronze aesthetic.

I think I am going to get a nice copy of the comic to display with it in the cabinet.
That's a wild first Bowen...great grab!

Sweet...great setup

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Congrats on the pickup! I have the same mini-bust and it is beautiful (all Thors made by Bowen are incredible). This is also why I like mini-busts as it allows me to get characters I wouldn't otherwise buy in full size.

well I was able to pick up the Bowen FS Colossus statue. I owned this statue a few years ago, sold it a few months later regretted it. I figured I could always repurchase it since it always seemed to come up for sale. I was able to get it at a good price and am happy am happy to have it back in my collection.

Congrats! It's a great looking statue. I have the chrome version and love it. I'm a big fan of the Byrne Era X-MEN and this sculpt captures that Era perfectly

Congrats, I love that Colossus. Side note, I also love (and have) that Marvel Girl, but she's a freakin' amazon in my Bowen lineup lol

I know that some people said that the pose for colossus was weird, but I always kinda liked it.

And I do agree I love that marvel girl statue, but she is a little bit taller than some of the other X-Men but her base is a little bit higher I’ve noticed

I've always thought it was a weird pose but I've gotten used to it. It's actually the top on my list to finish my X-Men set up...at least the FSs. Sweet pick up...it's a quality piece.

Really? I always really liked the pose, considering how boring a Colossus museum pose could have been.
