Hot Toys 1/6th Black Widow Collectible Figurine PREVIEW

UPDATE October 11, 2010: Actual Product Pictures - Hot Toys 1/6 Black Widow REVIEW

Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the Iron Man 2 movie. The movie-accurate Black Widow collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Scarlett Johansson in the movie, highlighting the newly sculpted head, hair implantation, highly detailed costume and accessories.

The 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition Collectible Figurine specially features: Authentic and detailed fully realized likeness of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in the movie Iron Man 2, Newly sculpted head with movie-accurate facial expression and make-up, Real fabric hair implantation in brownish red long curly hair, Newly developed TrueType body highlighting her body shape, Approximately 28 cm tall, Over 28 points of articulations, Two (2) pairs of interchangeable gloved palms (one (1) pair of relaxed palms; one (1) pair for holding pistols), One (1) extra right gloved palm for posing on waist, Each piece of head sculpt is specially hand-painted

Release date: end Q3 – early Q4 2010. Artists: Head Sculpted by Yulli, Head Painted by JC. Hong, Head Art Directed by JC. Hong

Was hoping to see Hot Toys pose her in this particular pose (see picture below) as seen in the film but since Hot Toys didn't, it means that you can't stretch the outfit this way as it might tear BUMMER (all the poses are of Scarlett Black Widow standing and looking pretty). If you notice, Hot Toys had never attempted to pose their Iron Man in that classic punch the floor pose until Mark IV (preview pictures HERE)

This will still be my second 1/6 scale Scarlett Johansson fem fig. The first was the Hot Toys Collector's Edition MMS92 (Movie Masterpiece Series) 1/6 scale 12" Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) Female Action Figure - posted HERE. This latest Scarlett Johansson 1/6 headsculpt is much better than the previous one in terms of skin tone, facial features and overall look. There's more of a resemblance of her here. So that's TWO Scarlett Johansson headsculpts and still none of milla jovovich :(

I like, I must buy!

Seng said...

Somehow the look is wrong...

LEon said...

Hot toy is unfair. When make woman they use implant hair but for guys they don't!

desmond said...

The likeness of Scarlett is only 75%..Don't know, doesn't look like her..

alex teo said...

hi saruman, yes buy you must, not miss it you cannot :)

hey seng, i'm hoping that Hot Toys will tweak and improve their HS like they always do. the FINAL product always looks better than the prototype in Hot Toys case

LEon, if Hot Toys implant hair on their guys, then they'll become known as GAY Toys Ha! Ha! personally, i prefer them without rooted hair - MORE manly ;p

yo desmond, like i said to Seng above, have to wait and see. still prefer these HS to those from TRIAD and CG - too plasticky and always Asian even when they are not supposed to be. Wild Work is even worse - old hag! CHEERS

I like that it doesnt look so much like Johansen, since i think she's a bit of an ogre.
I think Ill get one of these since she just looks like a foxy redhead
I bought the silken floss doll too since she was just a hot nazi rather than johansen.
So if they keep missing the johansen likeness Ill be more than happy!
I second the Milla request, particularly from the res evil flicks.
Wouldnt say no to a planet terror Rose Mcgowan either
