Default Simonson Armored Thor

Got him in last night. He's very grandiose, but I think it fits him. He's a true 1/6 scale but takes up as much room as a lot of 1/4 scalers.







Here he is next to Bowen's Classic Thor. Not so easy to tell here in the pic but he is thicker than Bowen's and probably a little taller, so closer to a true 1/6 scale.



If I had to nit-pick, I would say that his right hand fingers are too skinny. They are in metal armor and need to be thicker, NOT a big deal for me though, doesn't take away anything from the statue. I would highly recommend picking one up. I got mine for $200 shipped, very cheap for something of this magnitude.

Very nice.
Any sculptor credit on this?
Hard to not see all the Randy Bowen influences in this piece.

Phil Ramirez is the sculptor. I dont know if he ever did any work for Bowen Designs but yeah, you can definitely see the influence.

Was just looking at his Instagram page. Nice stuff. Especially the Dr. Strange he did for Diamond.
Would be great if Diamond would settle on this scale instead of producing so many smaller pieces.
It's interesting that they can pull off such a nice statue for that price point, but I can see how it might be somewhat restrictive for a company like Bowen Designs to do the same. Tis a shame.

Yep, that looks very nice and worth the relatively small price.
