Bowen Prices on the rise

I have noticed over the past year a steady rise in Bowen prices. We saw a huge drop when Rockys vault launched and was open but since them the price just continues to climb. The only statues I see dropping are ones that went way to high, like Spinning hammer thor.

I knew they would be on the rise again. I have a few I am waiting to sell at the crest of the wave

Yeah, I’m sure they’ll go south again then go back up a little, back and forth. Now would be a good time to sell I guess, if anyone is buying.

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?

Not to many companies are making mini-busts so for those with limited space mini-busts are a good option. Plus if you are a fan of comic accurate pieces, Bowens are the way to go.

Sounds like it might be time to do some completed-sales analysis

I totally agree with prices rising on very in demand statues , exclusives and small ES busts. Common statues with high ES are little tougher to sell for anything but cost . Those that are looking for grail pieces like a doc ock or mr sinister or chrome surfer get your ass ready for a pounding $$$$$$!

I wouldn't be surprised if the price hikes of 1/4 and 1/6 have something to do with it, too.

I will say...Bowen, imo, is the most collectible line on the market. High quality, space friendly but large enough to appeal to larger scale collectors, wide assortment of characters in different forms (FS/MB/mini-statues), comic accurate like noone else...throw in the history and I think you have something that'll stand the test of time. I have a feeling that a lot of collectors see it similarly.

. I’ve also noticed so much new blood coming into collecting and wouldn’t you know they are looking for older Bowen’s and Kotobukiya pieces. No company offers more variety than Bowen did and you could make just about any team up you wanted because the characters were available .

I put together

Invaders
Defenders
Avengers
X men ( my favs only )
Heralds of galactus

So many more options out there

Fantastic four
X force
Masters of evil ( mini busts )
Freedom force ( mini busts )

List goes on and on it’s so much fun finding these
