Anything that I have seen come out of Tweeterhead studios has been at the same level of Bowen quality. This Martian Manhunter statue is a truly brilliant sculpt yet still retains the comic book look, like a Bowen statue always did.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

Very nice. I'm really having to fight the urge to not get the main JL members.

Harley and Joker are a bit higher, but I think this will probably be about as much as Superman. Great looking piece. Another winner...I hope they come through on the actual product. This is shaping up to be a great line.

Iíll be getting MM, Supes and maybe Bats, depending on how he turns out. Same with GL. The Francis Manapul Flash is good enough for me I think. Iíll just need to control myself on getting too many other ones that I donít need. Iím sure when they do Aquaman, heíll be great but I will stick with the more recent bust that DC Collectables produced.

Tweeterhead did confirm on his facebook page that Hawkman and Hawkgirl are going to be coming next year. It definitely looks like we will be seeing a Satellite Era JLA lineup happening.

Yeah, these are gorgeous. I love their Lynda Carter, too. The problem is that at $250 a throw, it adds up pretty quickly.

oh, and my wife asked me why the Martian Manhunter is dressed like a gay stripper.
I don't really have an answer for that one.

Not yet -- just the Adam West and Dick Sprang versions, so far...

This is the first Tweeterhead sculpt that I actually like. I think it's because there's been a "cartoonish" quality to the facial sculpts so far that I find a little off-putting after seeing what a Bowen or Sosa is capable of. That quality seems much more subdued in this sculpt probably because MM is an alien, after all. Less frame of reference.
Hoping that Hawkman will have the same quality due to his large mask, but I'm worried I won't like the Green Lantern because his small domino mask will only serve to highlight the facial sculpt.
The price point is excellent, however and it keeps reminding me that Mr. Bowen had better get his butt in gear soon or companies like Tweeterhead and the rise in popularity of PVC statues are going to severely dilute the impact of his return to the industry. Especially if he has difficulty keeping prices in the same ball park.
