Bowen Designs Dracula Statue

Just to complicate matters...

I took the liberty of adding a few bats to the mix. They would likely increase the cost by a chunk.

Maybe for use on Dracula Deluxe Exclusive?

Thoughts are welcome...

(PS: We don't have a factory quote yet, but I'll keep you posted on the price difference between the reg. and one with bats)

BD has put out some real gems but I have to say - this is in my all-time top 5!

Bats look great though I think they might look better above or around Drac then down by his feet, just my opinion.

I don't like the bats at all, it makes it look pretty corny imo.

So no bats for me especially if its gonna increase the price a lot.

Not into the monster statues, but I may have to make an exception for this. And good grief, yes, include the bats. What a nice touch to a stellar sculpt.

Well I love the non-bats version, but if we're getting an exclusive with bats and maybe a white shirt in much smaller edition I can hear the frenzy building already.

Bats with exclusive - that way it'll appeal to those willing to pay the added costs...

i like the bats, but ground level bats does seem a bit odd. I would ditch them as this thing is a winner regardless.

Looks cool.

What about a bat in his left hand? Hmmm just a thought.

Too much of a good thing. The bats are overkill. There is already more than enough to look at with this piece.

Not feeling the bats. Nice idea, but flying around his feet? Doesn't work.

PS: white vest

Strange comment for one named after the mysterious creature who lurks in our New Jersey Pine Barrens! Ha! I'm curious what your reaction will be when the painted Living Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster & Werewolf by Night are revealed!


PS: I'd love to have a Bowen Designs Jersey Devil!

Not really a fan of the bats. It seems weird that they're coming out of the ground. Maybe if they were above him but I just feel they detract from the sculpture. The focus is suppose to be on his head and hand so even if they were above him it would take away from the focus.

Alternative: Dracula has control over more than just bats but Wolves and rats as well. What about a scary wolf with red eyes or some nasty looking rats with beady red eyes.

Just a thought. Still don't like the white vest.
