Pulled the trigger for $209 and free shipping. This thing is sweet.

Looking forward to this piece. Sold my Bowen Modern Action to make room for him.

I finally pulled the trigger as well wrlord. From the same seller.
Your post has been lurking in the back of my mind since March 9th.
I'm far from confident when it comes to purchasing pre-sells, but as you say, this thing is sweet. Too sweet to miss out on.
It's only the second full-size statue I've purchased since Bowen went on hiatus.

Just saw this piece at my LCS yesterday. WOW! It looks ridiculously good. I'm definitely adding this stellar piece to represent the BP in my 1/6th collection.

Oh my goodness.
I haven't experienced an unboxing like that in quite a while.
The similarities to receiving the latest Bowen Design statue produced such an immediate and overwhelming sense of familiarity.
This Koto Black Panther statue is absolutely breathtaking.

Unfortunately my digital software is in need of updating, but there's no way I could improve on the stock photos that are out there anyway.
Maybe wrlord or someone else will provide pics soon, but this thing is exactly as advertised.
It may be ever so slightly larger than my BD sculpts of BP, but the size difference is barely perceptible and he looks right at home among my Bowens.
Hats off to Erick Sosa, probably my favorite sculptor after Mr. Bowen.
He did a simply amazing job on this.

Congrats!! That is a great looking statue! I'd love a classic in that same pose/base.

You won't be disappointed.
This eBay seller is really top-notch!
I usually avoid pre-sells like the plague, but when I saw you had ordered one I figured I'd at least have someone to cry into my beer with is things went sour.
No worries there!

...now Wednesday...
I've almost always had good luck with pre-sales. Almost.

Got him today. Love the base. The left arm doesn't fit all the way in, not a big deal. Clean paint app and matches my bowen's just fine.

Yeah the forearms were a little tight (it was the right one on mine), but I got it to flush up finally.
Otherwise I would have probably broken out the Dremel to widen the peg hole ever so slightly.

Looks pretty damn good. Thanks for the pics. I was really holding out for the bowen classic action, but I might just have to pick this guy up in the meantime.

Such an impressive statue. And impressive pics, wrlord!
Every time I see it, I can't help thinking that if Erick Sosa had proposed this to Randy on spec, this might have appeared as a Bowen Designs statue.
