If it was the original BW release then I have to say that piece looks pretty dated. Especially when you compare it to the sculpt Tim Miller did for BD years later. Even the variant BW on the Avengers base looks better than the original release to me. It looks like the demand is stronger for the other 2 BW statues so that will push down prices on the OG release.

Thank you for replying!

I see what you mean. The later statues have the added value of accessories (guns), whereas the first statue just has her standing there.

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.

With those three black widows there is a huge difference in quality.

The $125.00 one is the early first gen bowen has the worst sculpt and the highest run size

The second one with the two guns goes for around 200.00 and the sculpt is nice but the face is not very good

The third Miller BW is the BEST by far, great sculpt and great face (one gun her looking at it) and that one goes for between 300-400.

The ONLY bowens going for less than $150,.00 are ones with high runs, just ok sculpts or unpopular characters. Another low price one is Bucky.

Most Bowens go for 200 plus easy. I would say average price 250. And there are a alot going for 300-400.

Yellowjacket goes for 500, Sunfire 500, falcon 250, vulture 700

I am a huge bowen guy and love them ALL

Congrats on your first bowen, in my opinion the best statues out there, I have them all, Iron studios, Sideshow, kotobukiya, hard hero, DC direct and tweeterhead.

I have over 40 bowen statues and I will never part with them. To this day I still am looking to add more to my collection.

Good luck and welcome to the bowen collectors club
