Bowen options.

As an avid (obsessive) Bowen bust collector since the release of Loki (my first bust), I have longed for a great many characters. Like many others we feel the collection is incomplete and recognize there are 100's of characters yet to be realized.
During Covid lockdown I got bored, and comprised a list of "ESSENTIALS". With his potential return to the industry I thought I'd post my DESIRABLE'S as a potential check list. The list is not complete, these are what I chose as the 10 most essential for every major title (I had to have a cut-off point). My personal lists have about 300 more characters on them
(NOTE: I posted a similar list on a Bowen Statues Facebook page and Randy "liked" the post himself, not that it means anything other than he's watching (probably giggling to himself ) but at least he's aware of the buzz)... and if you're watching Mr. Bowen - *nudge nudge wink wink*

So here we go.
10 essential Avengers:
SWORDSMAN... MANTIS... STARFOX... MOONDRAGON... JOCASTA... CAPTAIN MARVEL... SERSI (Avengers costume)... QUASAR... FIREBIRD... US AGENT.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
10 Most essential CAPTAIN AMERICA BUSTS:
FLAGSMASHER... ZARATAN & MACHETE (2 PACK)... BARON STRUCKER... PRINCESS PYTHON... SIDEWINDER... MADAME HYDRA... NIGHTSHADE... SCOURGE... NOMAD... WINTER SOLDIER

ESSENTIAL RE-DOS (Re-makes) or VARIANTS: Most of these are previously released characters that I think could do with a re-do for various reasons ie; not a great bust, costume variant, needs an increase in scale or because the previous version was a museum bust (no arms).
HULK (Larger version)
SAVAGE SHE-HULK
HAWKEYE (West Coast Avengers costume)
MEDUSA (A Frightful Four version)
CRYSTAL (Avengers costume)
SASQUATCH (Larger with arms)
RED SKULL & SLEEPER (2-pack)
CAPTAIN AMERICA (Sheild raised – you can never have enough Captain America)
DAREDEVIL (New version – because you can never have enough Daredevil)
BLACK WIDOW (Black costume with arms and a short hair grey costume variant)
MS. MARVEL (Original costume)
RHINO (Larger size)
IRON FIST (with arms)
NOTE: I would have added a new Spider Man but that almost seemed like a foregone conclusion.
DR.DOOM & DOOMBOTS 3-pack (Hey, why not another Doom with an excuse to add Doombots?)
MOLE MAN & MOLOIDS 4-pack: (with arms... and 3 cuddly Moloids!!!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ODDS AND SODDS – WIERD CHARACTERS:
EDWIN JARVIS & RICK JONES (c'mon, who doesn't want a Jarvis bust?)
TWO GUN KID
FORBUSH MAN
DR. BONG
HOWARD THE DUCK
D-MAN
SHUMA-GORATH (Randy could channel his H.P. Lovecraft for this Cthulhu inspired character)
FAFNIR the Dragon (Another huge monster to go alongside the awesome Mangog bust)
ULTIMO (This Galactus size character would go great in an Iron Man display alongside his Master - The Mandarin)
GIGANTUS (The Mole Mans behometh from the cover of FF#1, compliments a Mole Man and Moloids multi pack)
TATTERDEMALION (From the Night Shift)
GYPSY MOTH (From the Night Shift)
DANSE MACABRE (From the Night Shift)
BROTHER GRIMM (2-pack) - from the Night SHift

Hey Scratch

the one character that I would love to see Randy do would be the female Red Guardian-Tania Belinsky. I believe she is known now as Starlight and last appeared in the last storyline that Kurt Busiek did when he was writing the Avengers. Getting her, Clea (who amazes me that Bowen never did that character) and Valkyrie in mini bust form would be great.

The last character i cut from my essential list was Red Guardian.
I think she's would make a great bust and statue.

that was one character that I think that Marvel dropped the ball on that had alot of potential but nothing was ever done with her. Also, I loved the look of the red and white costume and thought it would look great in either statue or bust form

You definitely put some thought into it. Got some nice lists. Some interesting character choices. Red Ghost and the Supe-Apes...nice. Starjammers would be a cool set. I think you could make the Mole Man pack full size if you wanted to given how short he is. A Patch would be great, but I'd want it as a FS to go with the Mr. Fixit they put out...have to have him in the cover pose, too. I'd really like to see some Ghost Rider villains...seems like something that hasn't really been touched on outside of Mephisto. A Midnight Sons pack could be cool.

...I'd also like to see them get deeper into the 2099 lineup, but I'm not sure how well that'd sell. ...maybe a 2099 pack?
