Default Wonder Woman & Superboy Are Back

I never thought they'd redo these two. The originals were going for hundreds only recently on eBay. Now you can get them BOTH for about $60.
And all this time I thought Aurora had lost the molds.

I just saw these at my local model store! They also had the reissue of the Batmobile! I'm not certain which company? I really want to track down the Polar Lights reissues of Spider-Man, Cap, and Hulk!

By the way, Sideshow is selling the Superboy & Wonder Woman. Just click on any of our banner ads & do a search.

Those are pretty common in the "Toys & Hobbies" section of eBay (under "models & kits".) I see them for $9.99 each fairly often, especially the Hulk.
A search for "Bowen" in the "models & kits" section also brings up some interesting old kits Randy did years ago for Dark Horse & Geometric (among others) from time to time.

We displayed these at San Diego and they are very nice - I have them both sitting here on my desk and we'll be putting them in our front reception display booth today. You can get them both at your local comic book store.

Forgot I took a pic of the completed models at SDCC. I'm using this as a color guide as I build the Wonder Woman. The quality and fit of this kit is top-notch and a big difference from when I built the original Aurora one as a kid!

Took a bit of artistic license with the silver bracelets, but this was a fun kit to build. A lot less frustrating than doing the 1960s original, which I think I finally blew up with an M-80.

Nice job! I have an original WW built up I purchased from ebay many moons ago and a sealed Canadian version. I want to pick up a couple of these and eventually try my hand at this stuff.
