Displaying My Statues

I started collecting comic statues a few years ago.  There's something cool about seeing your heroes in 3D. 

Collecting statues is a challenge though, because they take a lot of space.  Early on I decided to throw away the boxes.  I wasn't going to keep the statues "mint-in-box," and I didn't have the room (or the desire) to save empty boxes. 

Even still, displaying statues takes a lot of space.  I devote almost an entire wall of shelves for statues, and others are scattered throughout my comic room.  Here are a few of the statues in my comic room.

Really nice collection, but aren't you worried that if you ever come to sell your collection or parts of it you will lose out if you didn't have the boxes for them.

Yes, there is no doubt I would have to sell at a discount without the boxes.  But I made the decision when I started collecting statues that it was unlikely I'd ever sell.  Also, I do not have the room to store boxes -- I'd have to rent one of those storage units.  So weighing the pros (getting a better price if I ever decide to sell, which was unlikely) versus the cons (the hassle and cost of storing the boxes), I decided not to keep the boxes.

I love that Superman and Lois statue!  I don't see a base, is it hung or mounted?

It's on a base, but elevated on a pole.  Here's the picture on the box (I threw the box away, but this is before I displayed it).

was wondering a few years ago Bowen Statues were quite the thing, since being back on the boards l haven't once heard about them anymore. I'd go as far as to say they were collected and worth quite a dime.
