Juggernaut Re-Release

We were thrilled to learn that Bowen Designs was re-releasing our Juggernaut Statue in a Faux Bronze Style. We collaborated on this sculpture with Randy Bowen himself and people really seemed to love the finished product when the original painted statue came out.

This was an absolute labor of love for us (as was all of our Marvel work) because the Juggernaut was one of Jarrod's favorite characters growing up. No one needed to tell us who he was or what he was about...all the research had already been done during our misspent youths. We still talk amongst ourselves about a bar fight between Colossus, Wolverine, and Juggy from an X-Men comic that must be over 20 years old now. (We're showing our age!)(And our geekiness!)

One of the reasons our Bowen Designs work is popular is that Randy kept giving us these incredible characters to work with. He never even suggested we work on a back up type character, even though Bowen Designs produces many sought after statues of second tier Marvel characters. But he gave us The Hulk, The Juggernaut, Thanos, Spidey vs. Venom, and the Wolverine, Sabretooth, and Black Panther mini-busts. We felt honored to be on every one of these jobs. We will always be indebted to Randy for this. Thanks so much RB!

Nothing can stop the fucking Juggernaut!


  1. Wow! That looks brilliant in the bronze finish!

  2. Guys, didn't you do the Rhino as well?

  3. Just checked underneath my Rhino, and yes, you guys did it. You should be VERY proud of him. He is my favorite Bowen sculpt.
