Gladiator (of the Shi'ar) Statue by Bowen Designs

When the head of the Shi'ar Imperial Gaurd comes a knockin' introductions are in order.

If you'd like to improve the quality of the video click the spur icon the on the bottom right of the screen as the video is playing.

     800 of these just isn't enough to go around... and given that I destroyed one accidentally, the reality is that there are only 799 to go around.

     The statue was digitally sculpted by Jason Smith, but the base was actually created by Mr. Randy Bowen himself via traditional sculpting means.  Thus I think several rotational glimpses are in order.


   There's much more on this statue that deserves closer attention.

      Imperial legs guard his posture.

 Imperial belt supports his status.

He's a soldier but he's never armed (get it?).

     His shield is emblematic of his position...

     He's got the face of...well... a purple alien...

...and the mohawk of ... well... a purple alien with a Mohawk

     As you can see, he's worthy of a royal position in any collection.

All hail the great Kallark!
