Who cares about low numbers?

There's no difference in statue quality, so what's the big deal about low numbers?

Some knucklehead started the fad on ebay, and a bunch of people fell for it.

Randy himself has confirmed that the sculpts aren't numbered as they come off the line, so even though you have # 799, it might have very will been the first to have been produced.

It's all a load of crap made up to get more money for the same item.

Frankly I could care less what number I get so long as it's an original Bowen.

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this forum, but I'm a die hard statue collector. I also sell them. I would rather give the low numbers to my customers and as long as I get 1 of the item, I am happy. I buy the item for the item itself, not the number.
However, in certain cases, production quality changes on a large piece run. For example, certain LOTR statues which had a production run of say 4000 or higher had a much better pain job on the first half of the run. This happens with some other companies as well. This was just an example. I actually have 1 statue which is #2000/2000. Which I though was pretty cool and I got that by chance.

Thanks,
Mike

yea numbers do not matter unless for personel reasons like as said a favorite number or birthday etc.

the main point is that you get one is what really counts!

Welcome Mike.

I don't care about numbers either (unless it was #23 which is my favorite #). I didn't know about that point that Mike made though, thats pretty interesting.

But if that's not the case with Bowen's statues (like Jesse says) then "#1" could be in reality #2,000, and you'd never know.

I won a FS Modern Cyclops for $100 and was planning on selling before I even received it. Once I got it, it was #1981, my birth year, so I decided to keep it and I think it's one of my pieces that I will never part with. But that's just me.

I agree with Cage about your point, Mike. Matching numbers are kind of cool. I bought the fading Invisible Woman FS from a guy who had the same number as the clear one. I almost went for it but then didn't and just stuck with the painted statue.

Other than this, who cares about the numbers.
