Mark Newman is sculpting Hercules.
Tim Miller is sculpting Black widow and the black cat we saw earlier.
Warmachine is a CG sculpt.

Awesome Hercules! Wonder what he's hiding under that kilt.

Black Widow is awesome too but I think her feet looks a bit tiny for that body. BOWEN FTW!:winner

I had the same thought...and the legs need more definition IMO but it doesn't bother me that much

I love that smiley belt Hercules is wearing. War Machine is nice enough...can Bowen make a light-up version? Black Widow is banging just like any hot comics characters.

They look great as usual. Bowen puts out quality stuff, and like Skiman says "write that down". All you youngin's that are just realizing this are late to the party :lol

I'll get Herc for sure. The other two are "most likely", but will hold out for some good deals on ebay eventually.

Agree.

Hercules, Black Widow looks good but a better pose than usual and a nice butt cheeks isn't enough for me.

Be nice if they make some light up statues. SS made them. Hot toys made em....may or may not be poly stone but it light up. Pop Culture Shock made them. Not sure of the last time Bowen made a light up functionality or ever but they should...preferably on the War Machine.

Did Bowen ever made a Premium Format? I am talking the fabric kind. Bowen need to up their game. Even some Pokemon plastic toys have some sound effects when it detects motion/sound. And I don't even collect Pokemon.

Of course, this is all my opinion....not trying to offend any one. :horror

Bowen statues don't "light up" or wear cloth/plastic outfits, but they do look like they stepped out of a Romita Sr., Jack Kirby, or John Buscema comic. I'm not sure if some of you guys know who they are?....

Been collecting Bowen, along with Sideshow stuff for years son.

I've loved Bowens style for a long time now, so I guess it's too late and I'm already fooled :lol Nothing boring about BD's stuff to me at all :monkey5

I was surprised it took 2 pages for someone to mention how Bowen's "stepping it up":lol Hercules is looking very good, WM is ok, and Black Widow's looking pretty good so far. On that note, I'm still not buying any:monkey1

Agree.

They all looks good but the only piece I like is the Red Hulk. It certainly look better than the glossy candy red Rulk from Koto.. I might get the Bowen Rulk in the near future. But then again, the second statue to the Koto Rulk(as fat as he looks) might be enticing. Note: he looks "candy red". :lol

I guess each manufacture have their share of the market. And I can't expect all to be the same.

Did you pick up the Bowen Retro Hulk? Or were you not interersted in that one.

Sorry, not interested. I have to admit I like the Bowen Maestro Hulk(Is this piece retro? Not sure). The Kirby 1:1 Hulk bust from SS is enough retro for me. If I don't get a job/position in a few months, I might have to cancel my flexpay lol. I have limited display space and finance, so I only buy what I truely like. I've collected various toys/figure/statue/etc. But I am sure I am not elite as some of you guys.

Oh man, don't get me started on the ass...plz. I don't want to get off topic here butt that Butt Cheeks on the new Conan, from SS, is irresistable. As Megan Fox might say: I may have to wrestle a water buffalo to keep my mind off of that butt checks. :monkey5 :monkey5

If that Herc looks as good painted as he does in raw sculpt Ill be all over him!! :rock :rock

War machine armor looks too much like a painted body. As in, the twisted torso just looks like a dude in spandex twisting, not a metallic outer shell. Which I know is the comic book kinda look and I still think he looks pretty good.

I use to be heavy into bowen also. But the problem for me was they produce so much stuff. The Scale on the SS can't compare the 2. I think bowen's women line has really stepped it up and t its nice to pick the odd bowen piece here and there but my money is for SS, because statues ain't getting cheaper

I agree. Bowen produces way too many statues and most of them are male characters.

SS wins on scale, sculpting, and painting. lol

Bowen rules. He's been doing great stuff for a long time. I own 100's of Bowen pieces. He gives us the classic variations of characters and listens to his customers. The guy is a big part of the collecting world.

I know Bowen has made some awesome statues (obviously) but alot of his releases are lacking. And yes he does listen to characters.... and thats why Black cat's breasts are smaller. :tap

Statues...."boring standing poses?" Wadda ya want, an articulated action figure? Anyway, I'm just happy that his statues are inspired by the great Marvel artists of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Ya don't find that from too many other companies. :)

The poses ARE boring and redundant. They have no energy to them whatsoever. Most of the statues have blank looks on their faces. *snore*

His statues arent inspired by the artist of the 60's to the 80's. Does he have like a Kirby Collection series? Nope. He has used classic costumes , I'll give him that.

Well this forum is called SIDESHOW FREAKS. Not sure how clearer that can be.

Sideshow can keep selling Bowen stuff if they want to... but notice how many Bowen statues got added to the Gift Card list recently.

Oh Snap!

Yea, ya...people are going to discuss, chat, bits tooth and nail under Marvel, DC, etc. I am sure there's more Bowen spies and DC Direct spies around too. I wouldn't be surprise if HoldyourfireAl works for Bowen's marketing dept. He got post on other forum as well.

I am thinking some of the DC Direct are better than Bowen, if not most.
Cover Girlds of the DC Universe: Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy is hot!!
DC Classic Confrontations: Batman vs. Killer Croc !!!

The jury is still out on my first Bowen pieces....could it be the Red Hulk?
Let me put on my "I am poor" mask on. Play it HoldyourfireAl !!! :violin

I agree! Both SS and Bowen put out amazing stuff. How can a marvel collector not like Bowen FS: Deadpool, Silver Surfer, Logan, Sabretooth, Colossus, Thanos, Dr. Doom, Daredevil, Thor, Cap, Apocalypse, Juggernaut, etc........

Bowen has been doing marvel right for many years. SS is also giving us great products. I tend to look forward to the SS pieces a bit more because I'm still waiting for them to release marvels iconic characters in comiquette form. Bowen has already done that many times over. I'm sure SS will make the wait for Cap, Spidey, Hulk, and Thor worth it!
