The most UNDERRATED Bowen...

Bored and thought this was a decent topic...one stands out above the rest for me on this.



I'm still surprised at what this piece goes for...the museum gets all the shine. Absolutely beautiful piece and everything I'd want out of a Black Panther...from the suit to the pose to the jungle base.

Yay/Nay? Post your picks.


Yes...I realize I forgot the D in UNDERRATED. I wouldn't mind if a mod wants to fix it...

I actually sold that statue well over a year ago and I was regretting selling it and I actually bid and won it in an eBay auction for a very good price. That statue actually just arrived today and I definitely do not plan on ever letting it go again. Seeing it again made me realize how much I really like that statue a lot and my Bowen Avengers Display was definitely lacking without it

Congrats...if it's the one I saw on the ebay sold listings then yeah, great price. I don't get it...top 10 FS for me, but different strokes and all that...

That Bowen statue I’ve noticed on eBay always seems to sell for less money than the other three black panther statues that Bowen did. The museum poses always go for a lot and it seems like the modern version of the action pose goes for a lot as well. I will be honest I think I just was lucky whenever it came to this statue maybe it was just the day and the time it was ending people weren’t paying attention (The auction ended on it was either Saturday or Sunday evening which I’ve noticed can sometimes work to your advantage whenever you were looking to purchase something ) or people just didn’t wanna spend a lot of money for it (which I did not).

I've always thought that the Bowen Designs' Shiflette' Hulk is an underrated piece. I forget if it's the 1st Bowen FS Hulk, but t's close. I have others, but I've always appreciated the action demonstrated & the Kirby-esque style of the face & pose.

This piece blows the digitally sculpted Museum BP out of the water.

Old Man Logan...he's a little pricey now I guess but he should be up there with Beta Ray Bill and Winter Soldier.

i have a bunch...what do you guys think is the main factor of being "underrated"?

-low eBay selling value?

-an under appreciated sculpt that little to no one gushes over?

or both?
