Almost a tie but the edge goes to Koto because of the pose for the reasons Bulls mentioned.

Look out for #1. Don't step in #2 either.

My wife actually prefers the Bowen. She likes the colors better; and according to her, it is more anatomically correct. You can't disagree with the Mrs. At least, in front of her.

Both are stunning!

I break it down like this

Bowen has the better colors

Koto has the better musculature....meaning I like the sculpt a little more. Has more details to look at.

I prefer the Bowen Juggy, hands down. It's an amazing sculpt, and radiates Juggernaut's raw power, IMO. I also prefer the face and helmet sculpt, as well as the colors on the Bowen sculpt. Lastly, the feet on the Koto piece just look too cartoonish in perspective to the rest of his body from some angles, IMO. They don't look as bad from some angles, but I just can't justify the expense anymore when I have a statue that I already like better. Both pieces have merit, and it really is a matter of personal taste.

I'm not going to be biased on the Koto Juggernaut just because it's the one I'm going to have. It's a tie for me. Both look great. Both also could be improved. They each have their own positives and negatives. For me, there's no clear winner here. They were made by two different sculptors and companies in two different styles, so the question for me is not really "Which is better?", it's "Which one do I prefer?".

I like your point of view!

I agree, and that's what I was trying to say as well...though it may have been a bit more forcefully stated.

Call me a fanboy but when it comes down to these Juggernaut statues I do not think there is a winner and a loser. Both the BD Juggernaut as well as the Koto Juggernaut are awesome statues in their very own right and each of the statues is a very clear homerun.
The only clear winners here are all the fans and collectors who are able to add one or both of these fantastic statues to their collection.

The Juggernaut is IMHO one of the most unique characters in the MU and I just love the fact that more and more statues of the unstoppable force of nature are being released.

The more Juggernaut statues, the better... Make Mine Juggernaut!

I can't wait to have the Koto one in my collection. I hope it gets here before Christmas.
