I really need some advice here. I have yet to buy either hulks and am really confused on which one to buy. I have all the other Bowen hulks and my only sideshow piece is the galactus head bust. I plan on buying Thanos and Silver Surfer when they come out thus adding to my sideshow collection. Considering that the price of both is relatively the same I'm really torn. Is the sideshow piece in scale with the Bowen? Money is so tight right now and I just purchased my first house and had to trade most of my collection for the new pieces I currently own.
I know this is a Sideshow forum, but please use your best judgement. Thanks again.

i would go with the Bowen just to go with the other Bowen hulks. The Sideshow is great but I think a little smaller than Bowen's.

If you're talking about these two statues...the answer is easy. Bowen Planet Hulk.

Waiting for my BD Planet Hulk arrives before I make a decision. However, if you just want a standalone PH, get the Bowen.

No brainer.....Sideshow all the way. The detail, pose, paint job doesn't disappoint. Worth every of my penny. And I ain't kissing anyone @ss. Only good Bowen Hulk is the Red Hulk IMO, which is not comparable to Sideshow's Planet Hulk vs Silver Surfer.

I got both and I prefer Bowen's. Pose, sculpt and size goes to Randy's masterpiece.Only nitpick about Randy's piece is that the paint could have used more shading.

But the piece that will top them all will be Sideshow's Planet Hulk PF.

Is that confirmed? Besides, it would probably be to big and to expensive. My wife doesn't mind the Bowen size stuff, But PF Hulk statue might be to much for her to handle.

As it stands right now the Bowen Planet Hulk >>SS version.
My LCS has one on display/for sale and IMO its just incredible. By far my favorite Bowen piece and IMO the only way SS can one-up this is if they give us a PF Planet Hulk, which I would definitely buy in a heartbeat.

I seem to remember from past Ask SS that they are interested in doing a PH comiquette. I would wait.

Easy answer: Bowen all the way.

Sideshow paint is better, but the for the sculpt, Bowen's is the best right now.

Anthos, thanks for the pick. From what I can see the scale is pretty off but it is an awesome piece. I do like the color more on the sideshow one, but I think I will get the Bowen one. It has a prescence to it. Maybe I'll be able to pick the dio somewere down the line for a decent price. It is an awesome piece. Shai, the Maestro is Frakkin Bad Ass. It's one of the pieces I traded for with my local comic shop.

Sideshow's exclusive Planet Hulk is still in stock in SS site. You could get rewards points or use the Gift card there. But probably can get it cheaper through the commerce section or ebay?

Thanks dude. I actually had it in my cart today and have about $50 in rewards points, but I was still unsure. That's why I wanted someone elses opinion. I just couldn't pull the trigger. Besides, I wanted to save my reward points for the Thanos statue exclusive. Unless of course the exclusive is just a print, then I'll get it at my LCS for significantly lower.

If you are a Planet Hulk fan then you'd buy both otherwise you's pick you favorite company and stick with it. Still can't decide? Flip a coin.

Kim Jong Il is one selfish bastard.

No doubts...

Just about every country have its good and bad history, U.S. included.

Even the comics world. Stand Lee mentioned that there's an old standard/code/restriction placed on how comics characters are written.
Blastemy if you ask me.

Well if you had a Bowen collection of Hulks, getting the Planet Hulk by Bowen should have been a no brainer.
