    Rumor is Hasbro wants less competetion for Marvel products.But They don't make Busts or Statues so what's the deal.

    but twice the quality ann much smoother to touch....for busts I just prefer Bowen....for Statues I like Diamond...cause they're statues are half price and usually make a scene.


    Also Hasbro doesn't do busts....at the moment....but they got the replica liscense for Star Wars away from Master Replicas and in later 08 are planning to continue the Force FX Lightsabers line as well as a line of replica helmets from the Star Wars universe....Hasbro seems to be expanding thier ways....maybe busts and statues will be in the future.

    Electro and Jameson are indeed absolutley Bad Ass.....Let the record show that I do collect the Art Assylum Rogues Gallery by Diamond...and Jameson from the Marvel Universe line.



    And I do see where you're coming from, it just comes down to a matter of preference.

    Though....I do need Diamond to Make another Venom Bust in that scale......because I will not be getting that one....ever.


    Also I found it odd that Apocalypse, Mandarin and Sunfire showed up in that line.....
