I was at the Berlin Flea Market for the first time in years, a few weeks ago. It's so weird! A real trip to the past that place is!

And it smells really nice in there too ;)

I haven't been there in a long time. The last Flea Market I was in was Columbus. Have you ever been to that one Al?

Well I got my Digital Camera back from my better half and here are the pics I promised. Awesome renditions all around. Also I dropped my camera and it is giving me an E18 signal in the lower left of the viewscreen. Any help from you tech wizs would be appreciated. All other functions are unavailable. Boooooo! Not the best pics but I never claimed to be Peter Parker. :)

You are one lucky man my friend!

Willie Lumpkin August 28th, 2009 09:20:04 PM

Salutations to all! Al has asked me to give a quick explanation as to how in the world I acquired these. I am living my lifelong dream of owning my own comic shop. I opened Atomik Comiks in Johnson City Tennesse in 1990 after working for another comic shop for a coupla years. I have read and collected since 1971 and have no plans of ever stopping. I Love Marvel and DC's characters and always will so when I saw these offered in Previews and I was already doing the mini-busts as well as a few full size from Bowen it was on. When Diamond solicited these I immediately planned on cutting corners to somehow afford them. They were $1500 with my Diamond discount. So my Directv, DVD buying, video gaming (I had an N64 and haven't bought another system since) all came to a screeching halt. As well as eating Ramon noodles and Albacore tuna for a year straight. I kid thee not. My customers came to call me Namor as they saw me eating my can of tuna for lunch daily for roughly a complete year. I remember reading Randy had scratched the planned Iron Man and Thor Bronze and was conflicted on my feelings. Was I happy or sad? I got my tv back and was able to watch the Red Sox on NESN and I believe it was over a year before I ate tuna again. :) I have kept collecting the mini-bust line but have had to sell my other full-sizes due to space and the economic crunch. Near complete on the mini-bust line only missing cube base Sasquatch and blinding chrome Nova. Thanks folks for humoring me on this diatribe and sorry if anyone was bored or annoyed by my long windedness. Al and Jack have put together the best site ever for the Bowen fanatic (everyone should be as his renditions look as if they lept off the printed page) and for that I am thankful as well as the general respect and courtesy shown from one member to another here. As Tiny Tim said "God Bless us everyone!" and Bestest Wishes to all. :)

Man, you took the term "collector" to the extreme. It's great that you were so passionate about getting these statues and I'm sure you appreciate them even more now that you lived off of tuna and ramen for a year.

By the way.... I know what you went through because tuna and ramen was my diet in college for 4 years. I feel your pain. I didn't eat ramen noodles for 5, or 6 years after I graduated.
