With all of Asgard’s attention focused on the approaching Thor movie coming to theaters in May 2011, it’s great to see that some attention is being put to the other guy, Beta Ray Bill in the form of a 16 inch polystone statue.

Originally created in 1983, Beta Ray Bill, aka Simon Walters, was a member of a race known as the Korbinites who were forced to leave their home world. Bill was given the role of protector to his people as they lay in stasis for the trip, and transformed into a cybernetic being that looked laughably like a dog or a horse. The storyline however was never taken as a joke, and with fan support, helped evolved this character into a powerful member of the Marvel Comics universe.

Thor was sent to investigate Beta Ray Bill’s ship when it was passing within our galaxy and this set off a chain of events that led to a battle between Thor and Beta Ray Bill. When Beta Ray Bill touched Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir, he was deemed worthy of the power and given the abilities of the God of Thunder. After another heated battle, Thor’s father Odin granted the continued power to Beta Ray Bill, and ordained a new hammer especially for him called Stormbreaker.

The modern drawings of Beta Ray Bill really bring out more of the demonic threat to his features than his original design. This new sculpted statue definitely proves he is still a force to be reckoned with.

The 16 inch Bowen Designs – Marvel Collectibles Beta Ray Bill Statue costs $200 and will be available 1st Quarter 2011, but is available for pre-order now. Click any of the links or images to get more details.

    What’s up with the horse face? Is this guy going to be in the movie? You summary was helpful but I never heard of this guy before. Looks pretty cool though.
