I never get tired of looking at my Bowen wall of statues. I love the 1/4 scale pieces too but Bowen started it all for me!!
I would sell off my entire 1/4 Marvel collection before I even think about touching my Bowen collection. Besides the fact that my Bowen pieces look amazing, Randy also did a fantastic job of digging DEEP into Marvel's characters. There's no Marvel character I want for my collection that Randy hasn't already released. It allows me to complete my lineups. I've got many holes in my 1/4 Marvel lineups that may never be complete.

Youíre lucky. Iíve got an extensive Bowen collection and there still are a few where it feels incomplete. Such as Werewolf by Night to go with my Marvel Marvel Monsters FS shelf, Classic Blade just to go with Dracula. Iíd settle for a Sif and Baldar busts (rather than FS) to go along side Odin, Beta Ray Bill, Thor(s), Hercules and Warriors Three on my Asgardians busts shelf.

Yeah, I have a Bowen FS Avengers, X-MEN, Spidey, and cosmic lineup. I need Scarlet Witch to complete my Avengers FS lineup and have 3 choices. I also need Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman to complete my FF lineup. My problem is I'm not all that crazy about my FF choices. The OG Reed and Sue don't appeal to me at all. I'll end up having to buy the FF FS 3pk and use just the Reed and Sue statues. They look solid to me but they still look a bit dated to me.

Hopefully, Randy restarts his business and releases the characters that you and others need. There's still plenty of characters Randy can give us.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

He had a MB set of the modern Guardians of The Galaxy to compliment the Groot MB that I hope eventually gets produced!

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Modok FS auction ended yesterday for $709.02 shipped. I think that's a high for him.

Havok FS auction ended last week for $603.15 shipped. i believe this is high for him as well (i could be wrong tho).

The last two Kingpin FS auctions ended at an average of $849.50 shipped. that's as high as i've even seen him (but maybe there was one or two that went for silly money)

some market observations: for the first time there aren't too many Bowen FS for sale on eBay sub-$200. Most are buy it nows in the $300s. Interesting because back in the day (phase 1-4) there were very few Bowen FS that would sell in the secondary market for $300+ aside from the "grails" The mini-statues across the board are selling for as high as they ever have. Silver Surfer Mini Statue is constantly selling in the low-mid $200s, which is that the action FS was consistently selling for s me years back. Mini-busts across the board are selling for all-time highs.

I saw that MODOK...Hydro-Man bust sold for 455 + shipping. I'm not sure that's the high, but it's up there.

I think it's just a matter of time before every Bowen bust or statue gets it's day in the sun.......except for that Hawkeye bust. Man was that a stinker.

MODOK's getting a lot of attention lately thanks to the Avengers video game and his upcoming Hulu series.

Also I'm not sure why Randy didn't make a new Hawkeye MB. Even then the reception for that one wasn't good.

Wow! Havok used to be on the high side but I've never seen it at that price. I think it's what many here have already said: There's still a demand for 1/6-1/7 scale Marvel statues. It's really the only series where you can get almost every character they see from the movies or shows.

It's a perfect time for his return.
