My first trip to my LCS since late last year brought some new toys to my desk.  Bowen's Shaman is a very welcome addition to my Alpha Flight collection.  Kitty Pryde is nearly a full size statue.  I'm a little worried she might tip forward, it's a pretty narrow base.  Both are sculpted by JBF's Jim Maddox and are gorgeous work.

My first of the Classic Marvel Figurines.  Thor needs some touch up paint work, but other than that, I'm really happy with the quality.  I was glad to see they aren't all the same height, either.  Ben is about a head shorter than the other two.

Thank you, Ryan, for sparing us our sanity by obscuring the contents of Shaman's pouch.

Oh, c''mon! Don't you remember what happened to Smart Alec when he looked inside of Shaman's pouch?

Ok, maybe it wasn't that funny....

As I mentioned previously, altho I am addicted to these lead figures, I think I will most likely pass on Galactus. I have the HeroClix edition, and that one is almost perfectly scaled to these figures. as you can see in the picture I posted on the previous page.

Whoa. Alliteration way too early in the morning!
