What is up Kool Kingster Kats! We've got some new radically awesome Bowen Design Statues coming your way, and we know how much you dig Bowen! And we know, that you know, that we know you dig Bowen Statues, that's why we do this type of stuff! So read on dear customer, feast your eyes on the beautiful bounty Bowen bestows before us!
First up; The Spider-Man Black Museum statue. This suit debuted in the May 1984 issue of Amazing Spider-Man, but it wasn't till a few months later that a story was spun (oh my that was punny) to explain the new threads. The Beyonder, being a wonderful guy, took all of the prominent Marvel heroes and villains to an alternate world for a fight to the death. After the red and blue was shredded, Spidey needed a new suit. Finding what he thought to be a high-tech "fabric replication" device which seemingly responded to thought. The mysterious machine hocked up a big ball of black goop that engulfed his entire body and eventually moulded itself into the nice form hugging figure of spidey goodness before you. Standing at 12" this statue will be releasing sometime around September.
Second we have the lovely Black Cat. She stands at an awesome 17in and final production will feature string of pearls in right hand (not as shown in painted image). As you would expect Felicia is fleeing her latest heist, stolen goods in paw. Some fun facts about Spidey's one time beau; She first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #194 and was also #27 on Comic Buyers Guide 'Top 100 Sexiest women in comics' list. Me-Ow! Black Cat can prowl your shelf sometime this August
Third up on our beautiful Bowen list this week is Thunderbird. Thunderbird (John Proudstar) is one of the original X-Men. He first appeared in Giant Size X-Men #1 in May of 1975. Unfortunately he was only a short time member, as he died on the X-Men's second mission. He died bravely taking down the evil Count Nefaria's plane. Come sometime August you can have Thunderbird immortalised on your desk for all time, reminding you of the true power you could have if you we're an Apache warrior who served in Vietnam and rose to Colonel, then joined the X-Men.
Fourth on our list and First in Americas heart is the super soldier himself, the First Avenger, Captain America! In this action filled statue Captain America (Steve Rogers) leaps through the rubble of World War II (rubble is removable) with his iconic shield in hand. Captain America was the first Marvel Comics character adapted into another medium with the release of the 1944 movie serial Captain America. Since then, the character has been featured in several other films and television series, including Chris Evans' portrayal in Captain America: The First Avenger. Captain America was Timely Comics' most popular character during the wartime period. After the war ended, the character's popularity waned and he disappeared by the 1950's. Captain America was reintroduced during the Silver Age of comics when he was revived from suspended animation by the superhero team the Avengers in The Avengers #4. Cap stands at 14" and can be yours around September.
Last and by no means least is Taskmaster. Taskmaster first appeared as an enemy to the Avengers in Avengers #1 (1980) he was co-created by the amazing George Perez. The Taskmaster went on to feature in numerous Marvel titles, most notably as an enemy/ally of Deadpool.
The Taskmaster is often hired as a training instructor by various criminal organizations as well as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the U.S. government. In Taskmaster vol.2 #3 (2011), the character was revealed to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. sleeper agent planted by Nick Fury to gather intelligence in the criminal underworld. He can mimic any physical movements he witness', so make sure you're not too lazy with this 14" mercenary sitting at your desk! Taskmaster will be on our shelves close to September.
