That is a very nice piece.  I could see myself getting into the Bowen statues very easily, if I had the money to do so.

A great effort for what could have been an underwhelming character. Props to Bowen and his team.

At this stage it looks like a modern Wasp is coming - I really, really hope they do a BA version!

This is my favourite Wasp costume, the John Buscema version:

A Perez red and blue would be okay too.

Oh I'm sure we'll get Wasp variants. I hope they keep the hooker boots on at least one  ;D

Next up in my Bowen review stream is the classic Kitty Pryde. Apart from one small complaint, she's a real beauty!

Enjoy!

It's a great piece and I'd like to see some other costumes too. As for Lockheed, don't worry the two aren't speaking ever since Lockheed was revealed to secretly be an agent of S.W.O.R.D (seriously)

That's a beautiful sculpt and the paintwork is stunning.Great piece mate.


So,do you have a new Mancave to set up all your stuff yet?

The display room is coming together nicely. I should have some pics together in a couple of weeks.  [hi5]

I haven't read anything after Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men, nor before, for that matter, but I thought that was a cool little reveal.

I liked everything about SWORD and Agent Brand in Astonishing X-Men, from their purpose (protect the planet from extra-terrestrial threats) to the superiority complex Brand had, the way she treated SHIELD as beneath her (in ever sense).  I really liked Agent Brand, and would totally dig a statue of her.  I also find green hair strangely attractive.


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: Bowen FS Statues: added Mystique
Post by: Scotty on April 29, 2011, 05:50:50 am
Despite a couple of annoying paint issues, this statue of Mystique is quite a beauty.

Check it all out at http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/04/change-is-in-air-bowen-mystique-statue.html and then tell me what you think!

Enjoy!

I like it. It's very true to her early appearances in Uncanny X-Men before they really sexed her up. However, they've managed not to make it dull as she still looks like a MILF.

I REALLY like this statue.  Wish I could find it for $100.

The latest Bowen acquisition of mine is Yellowjacket, and he's brilliant!

Check him out at http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/05/yellowjacket-buzzes-in-to-bowen-fold.html

Bowen's effort with their Sandman FS Statue is nothing short of extraordinary. This is a beautiful - and HEAVY - piece!

Check him out at: http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/06/bowen-designs-sandman-stands-above.html

And here's a taste:

That is one truly gorgeous statue Andy! Mr Marko has never looked better.

I have to say, the weight of some of these statues is starting to worry me. Ever since USPS put a weight limit on First Class there's no choice but to go 'Priority' now and these pieces are nearly hitting $100 each for shipping.

The latest addition to my Bowen FS shelves is Tigra - and she is a true beauty!

Check her out here:
