I’m a huge Bowen fan and have amassed a reasonable number of their mini-busts (with many on my wishlist), but I haven’t really been engaged by what has been on offer in the last few months – Bi-Beast, Executioner and Batroc are characters I’d love to see in 6” but don’t have the money for mini-busts for that kind of character, and there are still a wealth of higher-list characters begging to be made in this line - my personal top 10 includes Mockingbird and Captain Marvel II / Pulsar / Monica Rambeau.
I’ve been keeping an eye on the Bowen website and Previews for some happier signs, and so it was with great joy that I checked a couple of days ago and saw not one but two very promising products coming up: Hyperion and Cable mini-busts, both coming up in September.
AFB is HUGE fan of classic Squadron Supreme, and that Hyperion is going to look grand next to my classic Nighthawk and may even tempt me to by the Modern SS Mini Nighthawk Mini-Bust that’s been hanging around my LCS……. must resist…. must resist……
Cable is far out of my Top Ten, but that is one sweet statue. Budget may win out with both of these coming out in the same month, but just the fact that I’m contemplating forking out the dosh on a statue of a character I’m not super fond of means something.
Great to see Bowen heading in some likeable directions with their mini-bust line, and I hope there’s more to come!
