Bowen Designs, producer of over 100 statues, busts and mini-statues of Marvel superheroes over the last few years, was reaching the end of its last Marvel license at the end of this year, with Diamond Select taking its place (see 'Bowen and Diamond Select To Share Marvel for Years') . 


Now, Bowen has signed a new agreement with Marvel allowing it to begin production of more statues and mini-busts featuring 'classic versions' of heroes and villains from Marvel's library of over 4,700 characters.  The first releases under the new license are due in the spring of 2004, with orders solicited before the end of this year.


A virtual suggestion box has been set up on the company's Website to solicit fan input for pieces they would like to see produced.
