Should I or Shouldn't I? - Thunderbird Statue by Bowen Designs

     It's time to once again turn the question to you to see if you think I should take the plunge or not with a statue I have yet to buy. I actually had this statue as a pre-order when it was originally solicited by Bowen Designs but cancelled it when I realized that my budget wouldn't quite be able to accommodate it.

     The statue was released by Bowen Designs in late 2012 with an edition size of 500 and sculpted by the master himself, Mr. Randy Bowen!

     Ever since I cancelled the statue I have had moments where I questioned my decision.  I came very close to getting it a couple of times but I've always had a reason why not to pull the trigger on it.  One is that it would be difficult to fit it into my 70's Giant Sized X-men Display.  I feel like I need a larger shelf to display it and that without it Thunderbird would make the set look somewhat cluttered.

     It's a great statue, so I do want it but I'm currently on the fence unless I could be swayed to make a final decision somehow.    So I leave the question up to you to answer, should I get this statue?  To give you an idea of the current availability and price of this statue in order to help you help me make a more informed decision, here's a link to the current Ebay listings:

     Fortunately Sideshow Collectibles still has it in stock, so I'm safe as far as being able to get it from a dependable retailer as you can see here:

     Now that you have all the facts tell me:
