Bought a few Bowen's since they closed and sold a few. Even with funds. Hopefully waiting for Bowen to come back. icebreaker designs have some wants, but don't know if they will be there next year. Do they have a Marvel contract? If not -- I'm not putting money down; plus I'm in the USA and they are in Canada. What do you think?

I've got a couple on PO from Ice Breakers myself. No contract...customs, but I can't help but wonder how long that'll last. Might be part of the reason he's pumping them out so fast. I just hope they're around long enough for me to get my POs. As far as putting money down...he's said full refund if an item isn't delivered...take that for what you want, but he seems like a pretty stand up guy...not that big of a deposit anyway. ^If you're talking about shipping to the U.S., he's put up a chart on FB giving estimates.

I don't think they will be around and I know the deposit is not much ($25.00 for 1/6 scale) but as someone that has a small business -- try collecting from someone in Indiana when I'm in NC; it's a pain in the _ss. And we are talking USA -- Canada..........There are some of their statues -- firelord -- that I wouldn't mind trying to get. Firelord in 3rd quarter of next year 2019. Probable not in business. But good luck with your purchases. I don't wish bad on anyone.

Yeah, it's a bit of a risk...but I'm willing to take it right now. Thanks, my latest out is January...so, hopefully they'll be good until then and later.

^Mister H...just conjecture given the magnitude of the lineup so far and the lack of a license. I would imagine that disney and others would come knocking at some point...of course, that doesn't necessarily mean they'd get shut down.

I purchased Ronan, Jubilee, Quasar, & Onslaught from them. They are very well done. He even replaced the Ronan that was damaged from delivery. He also gives out discounts and are easy to communicate with. The Starlord from Statue Madness is awesome. No Box but the connecting parts are magnetic like Bowens. Shipping cost are not bad for Icebreakers coz they use DHL. Statue Madness is quite a wait.

1/6 only. It’s what my collection and wallet will allow. Lol. Yeah, though I pop on from time to time I’m mainly on the FB groups. Not buying much though. I think the Psylocke will ship from IceBreakers in July. It’s the overseas guys that could get them directly from China.

I’m right near you in PA, what’s the ballpark shipping charges for 1/6 statues?

Not sure that would be a good idea now with the email Sideshow sent out. Sounds like they could cut ties with any site supporting the promotion of customs. At least custom companies like we've been talking about. I'm assuming that would mean no more banners or kickbacks from banner clicks/sales. I guess folks are starting to take notice.

Now Gomez is asking if there are any Bowen statues that people want re done because they were not made good enough or to pricey to buy on the aftermarket.Randy I hope that if you are out there you see this and kick this guy to the curb.Until then make mine BOWEN,nuff said

Kind of a ballzy thing to announce. ‘I’ll do what Randy does, better than Randy’.
