Hot Toys The Avengers 1/6 Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow 12" collectible figure Review II

continued from previous post...

In the comics, Black Widow uses a variety of equipment invented by Soviet scientists and technicians, with later improvements by S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists and technicians. She usually wears distinctively shaped bracelets which fire the Widow's Bite electro-static energy blasts that can deliver charges up to 30,000 volts, as well as "Widow's Line" grappling hooks, tear gas pellets, along with a new element introduced during her ongoing series during the "Kiss or Kill" arc called the "Widow's Kiss"; an aerosol instant knock-out gas she has modified.

In the Marvel 2012 Avengers movie, Agent Romanoff / Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) carries a pair of Glock 26 pistols in dual thigh holsters.

In my toy blog part 1 review of this Hot Toys MMS178 (Movie Masterpiece Series) The Avengers: 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Figurine, I have mentioned about her stinger bracelets and two disc charges as well as box packaging and other contents. This was the pose by Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) as she is seen next to Captain America (Chris Evans) in The Avengers film. Scroll down to see more :)

S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Romanoff / Black Widow is seen with her Glock 26 as the Avengers assemble in the climatic battle with Loki and the Chitauri army. It's interesting that she's holding it with her left hand as it implies that she's left handed. In the publicity still, she's seen shooting with her right. I guess she's ambidextrous.

This Hot Toys The Avengers 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Female Action Figure is really quite exceptional with its fantastic sculpting and new costume and body. The outfit is more flexible than the previously released version seen in Iron Man 2. You can check out the review of version 1 Black Widow HERE.

As per the comment in your previous blog, I too have become EXTREMELY selective with the amount I buy now-a-days. The 4 years prior i averaged about 12-15 preorders, so far for 2013 its just 4 :( It's more like taking a stand and not so much that i can't afford them. However, having passed on the first version because I just thought it looked terrible, The Avengers Black Widow is near flawless and can never be mistaken for a mere doll, but a high-end collectable masterpiece rendered in 1/6th.

Seeing how good this came out makes me crave CATWOMAN even more!

I share your sentiments about making a stand against inflating prices. This Black Widow is just stunning and I too am looking forward to Catwoman, the other figure that I pre-ordered as well. Cheers
