Wayne, you can afford it !

As for me, can't wait for the Wonder Woman statue ( I may even go for a Superman ! ).

Thank you for the link, Mister B.

And Neil, if you do come to Hong Kong one day. I can show you a lot of shops selling all those neat statues and busts !

Prepare to empty your bank account !

New arrival, by Bowen Designs.



Something in the postion of the arms and legs has
me almost convinced this is based on a drawing of
mine, but I can't place it.

Something much more specific. The way the left arm crosses the body, the right arm is cocked, and the legs are tucked up and under. Even the way the left hand is turned outwards. I KNOW I have done that pose --- altho I suppose it's possible it wasn't the Beast!

Nope. The specific pose. Not something like it.

Courtesy of my pal Paul, up in Canada (and today's mail) I have now added the Hulk to the line-up of the lead figures. I was resistant about getting this one, since it's more steoidic than I like, but I know I am never really going to find that "slab" Hulk I so much prefer, so, when Paul mentioned he'd seen on in his LCS, I asked him to pick it up.

Must say, it just feels "right" to have the Big Green Guy in there with the others. however he is portrayed.

I've checked the four comic shops that are local to my house and work, and only one carries the Marvel figures.  Are there any stateside sources (online) for the figures only out in Britain so far?  I've spent a lot of time on Google and no luck yet.  I really want some of the Avengers out there.

A somewhat cleaner image than the one George posted above, as well as two more candidates, admittedly less probable.






To be perfectly honest, I thought it looked more Perez than Byrne, but it turns out I was wrong!

Lots! In fact, I recently took a step into madness, and commissioned a Hulk in the same scale as the 3 inch lead figurines, but looking like the Kirby Hulk of the first issues. If that works out, as I am pretty sure it will, I will most likely get a proper blue Beast, as well as a non-furry XHY vintage one done, too.

Now, have you seen this?

Not a big fan of busts (insert gay joke if you will).

I like these figurines as you can fit a whole lot of them about the place or like chess pieces on those stands.

Did you know about those?

Don't worry Didier, I will be in Hong Kong one of these days and I will definitely look you up.

Same for you if you are ever in Shanghai. Let me know.
