Default Randy Bowen of Bowen Designs Will Return!

As most of you know, Bowen Designs contract with Marvel expired on January 1, 2014. Since that time, we have all speculated as to what is going on? When will Bowen Designs and our UPS packages return? I'm sorry, but I don't have an answer for you. All I'm sure of is that despite rumors to the contrary, Bowen Designs is not out of business and they will return.

I have started this new thread due to the fact that the old one was getting a bit negative with a bunch of rumors with no basis in fact. I do know, for a fact, that Bowen Designs intends to return bigger and better than before. That being said, there is no definitive timetable right now. We just have to be patient and trust me...our patience will be rewarded.

Randy Bowen has stated that when there is an announcement to be made, it will be made here, on www.statuemarvels.com and on www.bowendesigns.com, so stay tuned!

And again...please be patient.


***Update! Due to divorce, Bowen Designs is no more, but...Randy Bowen has stated that he will return & will share his future plans with all of us here at Statue Marvels!****

I'd actually be more surprised if the Marvel license wasn't renewed. These things can take a while so I'm not sure why so many are worried that it won't happen.

One thing is for sure, Bowen Designs as a company isn't going anywhere anytime soon - with or without Marvel.


RIP, Kirk (aka Ace). You will be missed, brother.

I was concerned at first.
...but, not anymore. Bowen Designs is too good at what they do for Marvel to not renew.
I can't wait to see what comes next!!

I don't think it's misleading at all.
I believe Bowen Designs will return.
And probably in bigger, better and even more surprising ways.
Count a creative genius like Randy Bowen out at your own peril!

I'm not teasing. I'm giving you a fact. Bowen Designs will return. You can read all the speculation you want about contract negotiations and what not, but the fact is, all you have to do is have patience. We will see the return of Bowen Designs. The company is not out of business. Things may just take some time. Other than that, it's no big deal. We will see the return of our beloved statues.

Have a great day.

It seems I was not the first to be tricked by the wondrous moderator Al . . .

If you see the collection thread in new posts, it's because new pics have been added.

Not tricking anyone, but OK.

Like I said, just be patient. Bowen Designs intends to return to full glory. Don't listen to the endless speculation. NONE of what I have read on any of the sites is, in any way, accurate. Bowen Designs is in business, has a plan, will return and we just need to be patient.

If I were a Bowen Designs fan (and I am), I'd be a happy camper right now.

See ya.

No need for specifics, but do you actually know something about the Bowen/Marvel situation that the rest of us don't?

I know that Bowen will return, no doubt about that, but will it return with Marvel?? That's what I'm more concerned about.


Why wait until tomorrow when you can buy it today!
