Almost sold off all of my Bowen pieces. Sold 186 busts and 69 statues. It was quite the run. I kept 2 statues. I think I have 7 busts left from the Thor universe.

why'd you sell em all, risingstar? there's a unique joy i get from looking at all my Bowens displayed next to each other. It's a little different than looking at other bigger, and "netter" more expensive pieces. I have a real soft spot for these things. You are right, it was one hell of a run.

I must have owned some of these pieces for 20 years. It was time for them to be enjoyed by another collector. Display space was becoming an issue so something had to give. Also, to be honest, my display preferences changed over the years as well. Like you said, it was a good run.

that's a great thing you said there.

in 2013 i sold a bunch of FS to fund the Chronicle ED-209 and Cain Puppets. fast-forward 6-7 years i wound up buying them all back because i couldn't believe i broke up my "set".

the just a couple months ago i PO'd the Prime 1 1:3 Predator statue and i sold a Bowen Regular edition which i have a variant of to help with the first payment. It just so happened i would up seeing the piece posted online on the new collectors shelves...it was a rewarding experience to pass on a statue and see someone else enjoy a piece that i enjoyed. a lot of good comes from this hobby...aside from the boxes, dust and cost

I actually kept all of my Bowen’s and slowly expand them partly because of size and space. Best way to get much of Marvel together but I get it. Depending on what you collect the 1/3 and 1/4 can take up a lot of space. I only recently and finally got out my Sideshow Exclusive Rhino. I didn’t realize until I set him up what a beast that piece was!
