A new, faux-bronze statue of THANOS has just arrived from Bowen and it looks fantastic. Check it out:
Thanos stands 15 inches tall and would look amazing on any display shelf. It’s rare that you see these superhero figures with such an understated look, but the faux-bronze really lends a special something. This is a great buy for any comic book fan!
We have a feeling this statue is going to be pretty popular…but we still won’t say why.
If you didn’t watch the little snippet after the Avengers movie credits, you might not want to read this. The next villain will be, Thanos.
We just took off work (don’t worry, we packed up all the orders before we left) and watched the Avengers movie this afternoon. It was a very good Marvel movie. Audiences have rated it an extremely high 9.0 on IMDB, and 96% of critics like it or love it. I could definitely watch this awesome flick again, expect significant repeat viewings after a huge weekend opening.
Who is my favorite character? Legolas….no, I meant Hawkeye.
**SPOILER ALERT** The Avengers end credit scene introduces us to Thanos, who smiles when he’s told that to attack Earth is to “court death”. Thanos in the comics is fascinated with death and nihilism. He kills millions on his home planet with nuclear bombardment before travelling to earth. He is capable of superhuman strength and can absorb and project vast quantities of cosmic energy, enough to obliterate planets. His most famous storyline sees him gain possession of the Infinity Gauntlet, recently glimpsed in the Thor movie (in Odin’s trophy room). Each gem of that gauntlet grants its bearer complete mastery over one aspect of the universe: Time, Space, Mind, Soul, Reality, or Power. We know that Thanos is not a villain in Iron Man 3, and appears unlikely for Thor 2. So it’s fairly safe to assume the set up is for the next Avengers movie. So maybe exepct to see Warlock somewhere too….
From the world-renowned BOWEN collectibles line comes an amazing new rendering of the Marvel villain THANOS, seated on an imposing gunmetal grey throne.
He stands (or sits) 16 inches tall and the sculpting and paint-work are truly impressive. If you’re a fan of Marvel’s behemoth, then you’ll definitely want to snag this item. He’s a pre-order, so you can order now and expect it to arrive in the fourth quarter of this year!
