I'm a NY State Court Officer, I collected comics from the mid 1970s to 2007 and have 80 long boxes that I am looking to sell. I enjoy my statues but no longer buy everything I want (but I do get a lot of statues for International forum bruthas!). I play guitar, bass, and keys and enjoy writing music. I'm a Dallas Cowboys, NY Mets, NY Rangers, and NY Knicks fan. I've enjoyed Statuemarvels since I came aboard in January of 2009 and have made many friends over here.

I remember those, but I never saw one painted so well. Can you take pics from different angles? You don't have any of the Aurora Marvel Models, do you?

a little more than 28, but still feel like 16, i`ll never grow up!

- What year you started collecting Bowen and with what piece?

Dunno.....my first was Punisher or Dawn, whatever came out first, bought it just when it was released...American Entertainment (or what their name was) still existed at that time...they were always pretty cheap on postage...maybe that was their downfall

Daredevil (cause he knows no fear), Mysterio, Scorpion, Dr Doom, Red Skull, Jean Grey, Shocker, Green Goblin, Electro, the Serpent Society, Silver Sable, Jack O`Lantern, Hobgoblin, Demogoblin...i prefer the bad guys cause i`m the opposite in real life...

- Who are your favorite Marvel artists?

Haven`t touched a comic book for ages....maybe Jim Lee and the guy drawing cyberforce was great...Marc Silvestri or so.....Steven Butler did a great run on Silver Sable long way back....and AH! is kewl

- How did you find out about Statue Marvels?

I heard it through the grape vine

- What are your favorite sections on Statue Marvels?

Bowen Statues Discussions and RB QA - i don`t post often..maybe cause i don`t want to risk to get insulted....

- Married or Single?

I would have been married already one hundred times if it was only me to decide..

- Favorite Music?

Noone knows them over the pond i fear, but: New Model Army, Sisters of Mercy, My Dying Bride, Demented are go, Florence and the Machine, Frank the Baptist, Cirith Ungol, Saint Vitus, Misfits, Warning

Seven Samurai, Watchmen, Big Lebowsky, mostly everything from John Carpenter, High Noon and Unforgiven(?)-the one with Clint Eastwood...and of course...Das Boot

- Favorite CURRENT TV Shows?

The one, where the half naked woman has to undress herself fully naked in 30 seconds or she will be bathed in vanilla cream

noone cares for orange juice, right? Talisker Whisky is a mean guy...besides that Cutty Sark (cheap and good) and Absolut....beer of choice is Beck

And a couple of other ToyBiz Marvels:




And a pair of new Morbius models I'm still tweaking:
