Randy Bowen Q&As: Let's Rap with Randy! 2012
Welcome to Statue Marvels Questions & Answers with:
Randy Bowen

Randy Bowen is the owner as well as Head Sculptor and Art Director for Bowen Designs. Bowen Designs currently holds a license to produce statues and mini busts based on Marvel Comics super heroes, villains and other characters and vehicles.

Randy enjoys coming to Statue Marvels and interacting with fans of his Bowen Designs Statues and Mini Busts. The atmosphere between Randy and his fans is very friendly here and we encourage participants in the Q&A sessions to keep things light. If you have business type concerns or have an issue with a product you received, please contact Bowen Designs Customer Service. Their contact information can be found at the Bowen Designs website:

Randy has a few requests for participants of our Q&A sessions:

- Numbered questions are a big help! 3 max per post - PLEASE!
- "Off the Wall" questions are always fun!

The Administrators of Statue Marvels, HoldyourfireAl and Jack Daddy request that when posting pictures for Randy to see, please keep a few things in mind:

- Please don't post GIANT pics that take up half the page and throw the site off center. Reduce your BIG pics sizes before posting.
- When quoting someone else's post that contains a pic or pics, please delete those pics. All that's needed in a quote is the text. Page after page of the same quoted pic can be very annoying to some members who are doing a quick scan to see if Randy answered any questions.

Also, if Randy doesn't answer your questions, please don't feel insulted. Like you, he comes to the site, does a quick scan and if he has something new to add, he'll answer your questions. Sometimes he doesn't have an answer yet, isn't ready to reveal something or he just missed your question.

Finally, enjoy this thread. Statue Marvels is happy to have you and Randy enjoys interacting with you all.

Randy actually starred in the action thriller, "Nighthawks" prior to becoming a sculptor!

You've pretty much answered all my questions in the past and I'm really looking forward to preorders coming out. 2011 was one of the best years of Bowen for me and I look forward to an even better 2012 (until the end of the world that is, which I'm OK with since it will get me off the hook for all the money I owe Bowen, Inc. in the coming months). So with that I would just like to say, thank you and happy new year.

HoldyourfireAl January 2nd, 2012 04:33:52 PM

1. Have you found a sculptor for Nighthawk yet? (The Defenders one, not your movie!)

Swarta007 January 2nd, 2012 05:03:52 PM

Randy :)

Happy New Year...!

1. Have you ever made a prototype that you loved but never was produced?
2. Which one was it?
3. Would you ever do a GI- Joe line :-)

madozan January 2nd, 2012 05:16:45 PM

Hi :)
1. Do you have a personel collection and how was that :)
2. Do you think to take more comic licenses for example daynamite or dc for your fs and mb series

Clutters January 2nd, 2012 05:40:00 PM

Hope you had a great vacation Randy and feel refreshed and ready to create in 2012!

Here are my questions;

1. How many sculpts do you personally plan to do in the Marvel line this year?
2. Hobgoblin: have you decided on a pose or do you need more images/inspiration?
3. Dormammu: any chance to see this guy in FS in 2012?


CougarTrace January 2nd, 2012 05:58:46 PM

how's the rest of the Fantastic Four set coming along, Randy?

1) What's up with the 2099 universe?

While Hasbro, Toybiz, and Heroclix have all made some fairly successful figures of Spider-Man 2099 and he's even appeared in a few video games recently, I have yet to see any high-end versions of the character.

2) Is he just too risky of a character (full-size of course) for any collectible manufacturers?

I would love a full Doom 2099 as well but I realize he would be a reach.

Nightwing_78 January 2nd, 2012 06:23:57 PM

Hi Randy.

1) Do you think you'll get to sculpt the Museum Iceman this phase?
2) Think you could get a Firestar to go with it this phase or next? (psst Tim Miller to sculpt )

X-force Wolverine was a normal release, and X23 (X-force version) was a website exclusive (which sadly I cannot afford to get shipped over to me) so my question is...

3) What are the plans for the other X-force members, will they all be website exclusives or regular releases through Diamond and whatnot?

Thought the same thing when I saw that pic...
But I think Randy has less forehead and more hair. :D

And just to start the new year off right...
Happy New Year Randy! Will we be seeing this guy as a full-size statue in 2012? Thanks!

Cpt America January 2nd, 2012 07:03:52 PM

Happy New Year Randy!

1) FS Sharon Carter going to happen next phase?
2) Any more Guardians of the Galaxy in the works?
3) FS Super Adaptoid going to happen next phase?

moneyspider January 2nd, 2012 07:23:21 PM

Hey Randy,

1. Are there any plans to produce a Black Panther and Storm king/queen statue set in 2012?

2. Are there any plans to produce a Blue Marvel statue from Marvel Comics?

Hellsbells51 January 2nd, 2012 07:44:17 PM


After seeing a couple of the BD statue boxes, my eight year old had this question/comment:

1. Why does it say painted statue on the box? It's obviously painted, duh!?

Kids say the darnedest things!

SNIKT January 2nd, 2012 08:27:31 PM

hey Randy,

1. I was wondering if you still have plans to do a Full size Stryfe
2. Do you have a new sculptor for the Full size Bishop?
3. Are you going off the Kuchareks amazing mock up for the pose?


sash501 January 2nd, 2012 08:46:31 PM


1. How about a FS Stryfe to accompany the new action Cable and DeadPool.
2. Are you still doing the action Red Skull to go with action Cap?

Walrus January 2nd, 2012 08:58:01 PM

Hi Randy,

Happy New Year.

1) We've seen the modern Wasp sneak and the retro. When will we see the classic?

2) Any Spidey villain updates - specifically Rhino or Hobgoblin?

3) When are you compiling a list for phase 6? I'd like to see if Stingray and Leader can be added to that list.


Clutters January 2nd, 2012 09:02:43 PM

I think Randy looks pretty close to Blackadder in that first shot!

I wish I looked as badass as that guy. It's funny though- I have the same vest, even though I've not watched the show (yet).
