Bowen Designs' Bishop statue, now available for pre-order, is the latest in a long line of Sentinel-abusing statues. This 17-inch tall (to the tip of gun) statue depicts the time-traveling mutant on the half-destroyed head of a Sentinel.
Cruelty to robots aside, Bowen's Bishop is a very cool item. His right fist features an energy effect holds a rather large gun. The general sculpting is solid all around and I like the fairly dynamic pose. The Sentinel base also features a good amount of detail and subsequently manages the usual amount of cool.
For those who might not recall the character, Bishop is a time-traveling mutant with the ability to absorb energy attacks (which he can fire back) who made sporadic appearances throughout X-Men: The Animated Series. Bishop comes from a dystopian future where the X-Men were destroyed by one of their own, which allowed for a Sentinel invasion. The character played a pivotal role in the Age of Apocalypse story line, as he remembered the original time-line and was able to convince others of what had happened, as well as eventually saving the X-Men from the traitor (Professor X/Onslaught) in their midst.
Bowen's Bishop has a US$265 list price (US$212 for club members) and is slated for a May release. He has a listed shipping weight of about 17 pounds.
