Bowen Designs Ms. Marvel modern statue review
Posted by: Dr_Teng In: Statues
Another classic unpublished review! This is a really old one with some unfortunately crappy photography. Aside from Marvel not being on a Ms. Marvel push anymore, my thoughts are still the same on the statue though.
For those of you not aware, Marvel’s been on a huge Ms. Marvel push lately. She’s been involved in a bunch of major events and knocked most villains through a few walls. Bowen Designs released two statues of her, the modern and the retro. How’s the modern one stack up? Let’s find out.
The main word that came to mind when I first saw this statue was “sloppy”. Which unfortunately, matches my photography for this review. WELP. Nice butt aside, when I see Ms. Marvel here, I don’t see a determined athletic female flying towards something to punch it to the other side of the planet. I’m not sure if it’s the angle of the pose, the way the feet are aligned, or the arc of her body (which you can see from the side-view), but it just doesn’t work for me in the slighest, it’s completely unappealing.
The Ms. Marvel I’m familiar with has a considerably different face than this one and I’m not a big fan of the expression. However, I do like the flowing hair and sash around her waist. Not a fan of the base either, it does nothing for me.
No issues with the paint, fortunately. It’s nicely done.
2.5/5. I don’t think this displays well from the front or the side, and as hilarious as it would be to display it from the rear, that’s not going to fly in most collections. It simply doesn’t say Ms. Marvel to me.
Buying Options : It’s old enough now that you won’t find it in stores unless you’re lucky. You know the drill. Goes for a little more than I’d recommend.
