Bowen Designs has announced that it has renewed its agreement with Marvel for the production of statues and mini-busts based on Marvel characters.  The new agreement, which represents Phase III of the company's Marvel-based products, will begin in January, 2006 and run through December, 2007.  It follows the current two-year agreement, which expires in December (see 'Bowen Signs New Marvel Agreement').


Statues and mini-busts planned include Spider-Man and the Hulk, as well as 'some obscure but cool characters.' 


The announcement also indicated that the edition size for the statues and mini-busts produced under the new agreement may be reduced from past editions.
