Beautiful work Tim. This will be one of the few from Bowen this phase to make it into my collection.

I just hope you get the opportunity to do Natasha in 1/4 scale for Sideshow in the near future. IM2 is coming you know:)

Yeah, I didn't think that either. Looks like they are going the same route with all lines tho' spacing out the most popular characters with sexy females in between. Seem to be working look at the Ex ES of Ms. Marvel 750 more than Wolvie PF :lol

So they will probably push on, however so many really famous ones have not been made yet, and it's kinda painful to have them drag it out when all you want is to see the bunch together right now! :horror

Really wish Bowen would venture into 1:4. oh well.

One of many would be that they be directly in competition with SS' 1:4 scale. Another is that they have a certain nostalgic, design, style to it. And another, as HoldYourFireAl states, they won't do a Light-Up LED functionality to their statue.

Might just be best this way. Each manufacture have their own specialty. Be interesting if SS does more products similiar to HT, DCDirect, Bowen, etc.

Yeah they have had some serious issues. QC has definitely not been doing there job.

Which Iron Man statue, the 1:2 or the Comiquette?

Sideshow is not perfect.

Corrose
03-23-2010, 08:55 PM
Regardless of who's to blame (Bowen or Marvel Licensing) I just can't bring myself to own a lot of bowen. At 12" tall, they just lose their appeal displayed next to a 18-22" sideshow piece.

I have the Bowen Thanos, and Planet Hulk on the way, but at least these 2 pieces are significantly larger and kind of hold their own.

So beautiful BW sculpt, but a pass for me due to size.

ActionJackson83

Sheesh. Some of you guys must be new to the game! LOL

Bowen has been producing same size Marvel statues since the late 90's. He's constantly adding new characters to their line-up of previously released statues so why would Bowen collectors want to see these new characters in different sizes??? We want a consistent look across the board, you know? If he sculpts a Gladiator or Owl or Whiplash statue I want him the size of the Daredevil statue I bought in 1998. Okay?

What if Sideshow started making their 1/4 scale figures 1/5 or 1/6? You'd be the first to _____ that the characters don't match in size to your previously purchased 1/4 dolls. In fact, isn't that what people were complaining about recently with the the PFs and comicquettes and how this guy doesn't size up to this guy, etc. Wasn't there an issue recently with the Punisher or some body else?

Bowen has a certain license with Marvel with limits to what he can produce. This INCLUDES SIZE LIMITS you bunch of morons!! LOL

I like consistency. I want my 1/4 scale dollies to match as I want the size of my Bowen statues to match. I collect what I like and what I can afford. I don't limit my collection to certain sizes (stupidest thing I ever heard!). But I do want consistency in the different sized lines that I collect.

I dont think they are bashing Bowen. they like the statue but they would have preferred it to be bigger. I like the BW statue and the Black Cat that Bowen has for PO... but I do wish they were taller. 12" statues do look good on my desk though.

Punisher was supposed to be 1/4 but I think its actually 1/5 or 1/4.5. I'm sure some people returned it because the size was wrong.

I just wish DC would get that message and release multiple lines at different scales or at least give companies like BD or SS a license to produce what some collectors have been crying out for.

With regards to Bowen producing at a large scale...maybe its simple economics and its just costing too much.

I love the Bowen classic style, but yeah... I agree they are overpriced when compared to the other companies. I have to be very selective and usually do the ebay route to shave off some of the $$$.

The size thing is cool with me though. I like so many Marvel characters, but just don't have the room to have them all in 1/4 scale. I try to reserve the 1/4 scale for the big iconic characters only, and display that stuff separately from the Bowen stuff.

Black Widow looks great. I might get this one down the road, and am really glad I never bought the 1st version now.

I guess it's because people will want to display her next to some of the other X-related characters in museum style poses which seem to have simpler bases such as Cyclops, Colossus, Magneto, etc.

I believe he will eventually do Storm in a more stoic, regal pose also as her statue was in action form.
