Hi everyone. My name is Francisco and I am a Marvel addict. Great characters, great story lines and now that I've gotten a taste of the collecting scene AMAZING statue representations of those characters. My favorite character (way before the recent movie) is easily Thor.

I started collecting statues roughly 3 months ago and have mostly SSC products and a few PopCulture Shock one's because I'm a street fighter freak too ...having said that I am def not the type of person who collects one brand of anything so with the recent release of the Modern Thor Museum statue I've officially preordered my first Bowen Statue and am totally psyched to see it in person. Add in the upcoming Action Pose Thor (which I'm 100% digging right now) and I'm totally going Bowen crazy right now. Anyways I'm excited to join this forum and talk statues with you folks.

Oh and I was raised and currently reside in Houston, Texas in case any other fellow Houstonians visit this board

Well I started collecting MB's years ago but in about 2008 sold them to make room for FS. I have been collecting only Bowen FS since then(with gaps in between due to moving, stationed in BFE, etc etc) and have a 99% X Men collection (display soon to come) I have been in the military since 2004. I signed up here because it looked like a great place to check out other collectors displays and chat with some cool ppl who share the same addictive hobby as me.

Ok, I figured I've been doing this long enough so here goes...

My name's Warren and I've been a comics collector since I was 12 and now I'm approaching my big 3-0. I started with X-Men and branched out to Avengers and a few years ago, I started reading JLA. I started statue collecting in 2008 and now I have over a hundred Bowens and SS combined - all FS. I'm starting to think I'm working so I can hand over my money to RB. lol

My fanboy dream is to have a complete X-Men 70's-80's lineup from Bowen and get as many Avengers as possible for a huge Avengers Assemble team display. I might have to renovate my house to have enough space for more stones though.

And yeah... CLASSIC all the way!

I've decided to make an introduction thread for the Bowen Section. Let's try to keep the posts simple. Here are some things I'm hoping to see...

- Picture of you Too Hazy
- First Name Matt
- Location Weston, Pa. small town, maybe 350 people, nice and quiet.............
- Year Born 1963
- What year you started collecting Bowen and with what piece? Cyclop's MB Year?
- A FEW (please no long lists) of your favorite Marvel characters Old School Avenger's/X-Men/Ironman, a few Issue away from completing all of these titles!!! $$$
- Who are your favorite Marvel artists? Sal Buscema/Greg Land
- How did you find out about Statue Marvels? Sneak Peak's of BD stuff!
- What are your favorite sections on Statue Marvels? Bowen Design's/ Anything about RUSH!!!
- Married or Single? Single, and looking.......
- Favorite Music? The Holy Triumvirate from the Great White North, RUSH-O-HOLIC
- Favorite Movies?Anything by John Carpenter, Escape from New York, The THING, BiG Trouble in Little China, and the rest... BladeRunner, Apes!! Loved their Original Releases in the Theatre's Dad was cool enough to let me Go!!
- Favorite CURRENT TV Shows? Not much, besides Sport's Phil's, Flyer's and Steeler's.
- Favorite Drinks? Jack Daniel's straight up....
- Favorite Food? Anything HOT! Local Pizza place makes a Fantastic Hot Wing Pizza!
- Favorite Vacation Spot? Any where but work, usually in a boat fishing, somewhere.
- Your Local Comic Shop (with link if available) Comic's on the Green in Scranton, Pa.


- Write a short paragraph about yourself.
In the 60's my father had a photo studio next to our house, mom was kind of his secretary, the only problem was she would use my comic's to writedown phone number's on them of customer's, well, you know the story, year's later the ones that survived, I have, as well as the ones with the phone number's, nobody cared, they were only "funny book's" back then, ouch, when she see's these now even she get's a little upset.
Thank's for having me!!

...Hopefully, if this thread is successful, we'll introduce similiar ones in other producers' sections.

I have only just discovered Bowen Statues and comic statues in general to be honest earlier this year. I have decided to only collect FS Museums and currently have Antman, Classic Punisher, Bucky Cap, Ghost Rider, X-Force Wolverine and a Koto Iron Man so far. I do have a fair few on order though! Coming into the hobby at this point in time it's really difficult to get hold of the characters I want without breaking the bank given there is so much already out there. I am probably going to be a bit of a rarity on these forums given that I have never read a comic book in my life. My desire to collect and the process in which I decide what I will get is based more on how the character looks visually. I know some of the major characters back stories but nothing in real detail. I did buy the Marvel Encyclopedia though, just to give me a basic idea of the Marvel Universe. I also have a collection that I've accumulated over the years of 1:18 scale diecast cars and 1:12 scale bikes. I'll probably post rarely and when I do I doubt it will hold much importance but what the hell

P.S. Apologies for the novel I just wrote above.

Just started collecting bowen designs 2 months ago.. i have 6 mini statues and one full size ICEMAN and 2 full size of WOLVERINE on the way... and im amazed of how many people are here collecting nothing but the best statues out there. i was disappointed yesterday.. i was at the mall saw a statue of PSYLOCKE and when i said yes ill buy it, the guy was trying to take out psylocke from the base and he broke a little piece on the foot, so i have to say no to that.. but i was pissed and sad about it.

by the way i see many pictures here and im so jealous of the cabinets that they have.. can anyone message me where to buy them... but not so expensive please... and i do sell stuff on ebay.. getting rid of my old collections...

thanks

This thread was in the Bowen Section, but now that we have an entire section devoted to introducing yourself, it kind of became redundant. This original thread will be preserved here for your enjoyment.

Thanks!
