That base is easily the coolest base I seen for a character, and no Dr. Doom PF does not count. He was sitting on a throne. A pretty throne, but a throne nonetheless.

Great pictures btw!

You guys can down play this statue all you want but this piece is absolutely magnificent. It's as close to perfect as you can get. I haven't found one thing i would change.

I am picking this up ASAP before all the vultures get a hold of it jack up the price on the secondary market....damn flippers.

Are you buying statues you like or are you investing in the stock market? Who cares about aftermarket. Maestro is a gorgeous incredible statue. It is outstanding. If you look at a statue and decide if you like it or not based on: "I doubt there's that much of an aftermarket" then you've totally missed the point of the joy of collecting. If you like it, and can afford it, and you want it, then buy it.

On one hand, I only buy what I like. No matters what people say, its still my $$$, love, and no one else.

On the other hand, I want people to scream and salivate over my statue and beg for juicy pics. I want to know that my decision to buy this statue is a great decision financially. Like having an offspring that outlived its parents. Like buying a Superman #1 that sold for 1 millions bucks. Heck, if I have the $$$, I might buy 2-3.

You can't have one hand and not the other. Its the total package of collecting. "the joy of collecting" also includes other people liking what you collected. Otherwise, you might as well collect leaf or bugs and no one cares except maybe museums or colleges/university.

Unfortunately, I only like a select few of Bowen products.

If you missed this statue and still want it, you would care about aftermarket if FLIPPERs/SCALPERs have their way. Fortunately, Bowen don't have much of an aftermarket.

I don't know why you bother? ink just comes into Bowen threads & makes ignorant comments. Some men like women. Some men like to disrupt threads with immature and ignorant comments. Whadda ya gonna do? :banana

This is definately one of the most dynamic and fitting bases ever! The detials is amazing, and so well tied to the story/character! The statue itself is also amazing! You can criticize the look all you want, but in terms of likeness to the comic, I dont think you can beat it!

The more I look at this guy in person, the more I love it! The colors pop. The green is great, the hair offsets the green perfectly and the pants are the richest shade of blue I have ever seen on a statue! And Cap's shield is AMAZING in person.
