Preview Hot Toys The Avengers 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition 12-inch Figurine

In The Avengers movie, Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., recruits Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk and Thor to form a team that must stop Thor's adoptive brother Loki from subjugating Earth. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow and Clint Barton / Hawkeye also join the Avengers to defend Earth from the alien invaders.

Scarlett Johansson stars as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow: A highly trained spy working for S.H.I.E.L.D. About the character, Johansson said, "Black Widow is definitely one of the team. She's not in the cast simply to be a romantic foil or eye candy. She's there to fight, so I never felt like I was the only girl. We all have our various skills and it feels equal".

Looks great but I am wary of the rooted hair. I've yet to receive a HT figure with rooted hair that matches the prototype and doesn't age badly.

such a huge improvement over the last one... does the zipper work on these, cause she was zipped up for most of the movie.

AMAZING!!! Several times better than the first one, which I passed on after long debating. I collect action figures and the first one looked like a "doll" and the body appeared just plain odd. This release has all the things going for it the first one didn't. A must buy. Now gimme HULK!

I actually saw this one a few days ago and thought how amazing it was. You must just look at your collection and be able to follow all the advancements in the development of these figures. That would make an interesting post. Love the stuff you do as always.
