Review: Marvel Comics Hawkeye 1/6th scale Costume and Equipment set for Captain Action

continued from previous post...

This is the Captain Action 1/6 scale The Avengers Hawkeye costume set from the Assemble-an-Avenger promotion that is possible if you have all six of the Round 2 Captain Action costume sets consisting of the Captain Action Spider Man Deluxe Uniform Set (posted in my toy blog HERE and HERE), Captain Action Captain America Deluxe Uniform Set (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE), Captain Action Thor Deluxe Uniform Set, Captain Action Loki Deluxe Uniform Set (Thor and Loki briefly covered HERE), Captain Action Wolverine Basic Uniform Set (see my review HERE) and Captain Action Iron Man Basic Uniform Set (reviewed earlier HERE and HERE).

The Captain Action 1/6 scale Hawkeye costume set is put on a 12-inch Hot Toys TrueType figure (muscular body type) with a 1/6 scale Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton head sculpt. These Captain Action costume sets are designed for the new Captain Action figure but since I don't have any Captain Action figure, I had to use what was available. After all, these costume sets are designed for 12-inch figures.

Hawkeye (Clint Barton) is a fictional character and comic book superhero who appears in publications by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Don Heck, the character first appeared as a villain in Tales of Suspense #57 (Sept. 1964) and later joined the Avengers in Avengers #16 (May 1965). He has been a prominent member of the team ever since. Hawkeye is portrayed by Jeremy Renner in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a shared fictional universe that is the setting of films produced by Marvel Studios. Renner first made an uncredited cameo appearance as Hawkeye in Thor (2011) and later reprised the role in The Avengers (2012) and The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

I thought it would be interesting to see how Jeremy Renner looks wearing the Hawkeye costume from the comics ;p I did the same with 1/6 scale Chris Evans as Steve Rogers in Classic Captain America costume (posted HERE) and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the classic yellow & blue costume as seen originally in the Marvel comics (pictures HERE). I intend to do the same with Thor and Loki since I have both of their head sculpts (posted earlier HERE).

Hawkeye was introduced as a reluctant villain in Tales of Suspense #57 (September 1964). After two more appearances as a villain in Tales of Suspense #60 and #64 (December 1964 and April 1965), Hawkeye joined the ranks of the Avengers in Avengers Vol.1 #16 (May 1965).

While Hawkeye has no superhuman powers, he is at the very peak of human conditioning; he is an exceptional fencer, acrobat and a grandmaster marksman, having been trained from childhood in the circus and by the criminals Trick Shot and Swordsman.

Hawkeye has also been thoroughly trained by Captain America in tactics, martial arts, and hand-to-hand combat. Hawkeye excels in the use of ranged weapons, especially the bow and arrow, and carries a quiver containing a number of customized "trick arrows".

And here's a picture of the Hawkeye mask for Captain Action

Check out the pictures below of the full 1/6 scale Hawkeye costume intended for the Captain Action 12-inch figure

Captain Action Hawkeye comes with three arrows in his quiver. Hawkeye is famous for his customized "trick arrows"

But the best part is, out of the three arrows featured, one of them has Ant-Man holding on to the arrow head ;p That's a nice touch.

Hi friend.

I love all swaps that you made for various superheroes, but I'm still waiting for Thor and Loki wearing the Captain Action's suits. I can't give me the pleasure of bought a head, body and these suits for wear a figure.

Can you have the pleasure of show us how Thor and Loki look with Captain Action's suits? I'll be grateful with you for all my life...

Thanks and greetings from Mexico.

P.D. Sorry for my poor english, I'm still learning it...

Hi Julio

Thanks for commenting. Haven't got around to the Captain Action Thor and Loki costumes yet but I will in the near future. Apologies for making you wait. Nice to know that there are people looking forward to the posts.

Cheers from Singapore :)

BTW, your English is okay because I can understand it.
