Check out Kotobukiya Marvel Comics Avengers Now Hawkeye ARTFX+ 1/10 scale Statue

Kotobukiya presents the next Marvel 1/10 scale ARTFX+ statue in their Avengers Now line: Hawkeye. Kotobukiya based this figure of Hawkeye on his appearance in his current Marvel NOW! comic.  Caught in mid-draw as he prepares to bring an enemy down, Hawkeye is tightly coiled in anticipation. This iconic character certainly looks different from his first appearance in the comics (check out the Famous Covers Hawkeye posted in my toy blog 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). He has been a prominent member of the team ever since. Scroll down to see the pictures of this Kotobukiya Marvel NOW! version of Hawkeye which looks much closer to the movie version.

Avengers assemble! Who would you enlist from the Marvel Universe to create the ultimate team?

I like The Avengers as much as any casual fan, but I'm not feeling it from these statues... I have the seven JLA ArtFX+ figures which are pretty awesome (minor nitpick is Aquaman's trident, which seems way too tall and angled strangely), but these Avengers ArtFX+ don't look as good to me.
