Having already reviewed the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Scarlett Johansson Black Widow 12-inch Collectible Figure in my earlier toy blog posts HERE (box packaging and contents) and HERE (Black Widow with her various weapons), I wanted to see how this latest Black Widow compares in terms of size (height) with the other previously released Hot Toys Black Widow action figures. I have the Hot Toys MMS124 "Iron Man 2" 1/6th scale Black Widow Figure (review posted HERE and HERE) and the Hot Toys MMS178 The Avengers 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition 12-inch Female Figure (reviewed HERE and HERE) for comparison, as well as the Hot Toys Collector's Edition MMS92 (Movie Masterpiece Series) 1/6th scale Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) 12-inch Female Action Figure (pictures HERE).

I have already posted comparison pictures of Hot Toys 1:6 scale Catwoman (Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle from "The Dark Knight Rises") with Black Widow, Batman Returns Catwoman and Batman in an earlier toy blog post HERE. There is a distinct height disparity between Catwoman and Black Widow. I guess that's because Anne Hathaway is 1.73m tall (5 ft 7 in) while Scarlett Johansson's height is 163 cm or 5 ft 4 in. I think Hot Toys is trying to stay true to scale in terms of the actor's height. That's nice to know but it wasn't always so. Hence this post to show the differences in height of Hot Toys female action figures in relation to each other and where Black Widow stands with Captain America and Tony Stark.

Besides releasing four 12-inch Black Widow figures (three are shown here - I did not get the Winter Soldier version because I felt that there wasn't much of a difference with the earlier released Avengers version) based on actress Scarlett Johansson, Hot Toys also released a 1/6th scale Scarlett Johansson as Silken Floss 12-inch Female Action Figure in 2009. The sculpting and painting skills weren't quite there yet then but at the time this was released, it was a stunner. 12-inch Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) is taller than the latest released Scarlett Johansson Black Widow figure.

Here are the three Hot Toys 1:6 scale Scarlett Johansson Black Widow figures standing together. From left to right: MMS124 "Iron Man 2" Black Widow, MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" Black Widow and MMS178 "The Avengers" Black Widow.

MMS178 "The Avengers" Black Widow (left) and MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" Black Widow are about the same height (shorter than the earlier released Scarlett Johansson figures)

MMS124 "Iron Man 2" Black Widow (left) is taller than MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" Black Widow. I think at the time Hot Toys were producing standard size 12-inch figures so the males and females were all of the same height, hence a rather tall Black Widow for "Iron Man 2". That wasn't very movie accurate or even correct in the real world so Hot Toys has since released figures based on the height of the actors playing the characters in the films for their Movie Masterpieces Series and now we have more accurate sized figures, like the latest Scarlett Johansson Black Widow figure from "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on the right of the picture.

Hi is it possible to head swap the Avengers with the AOU body? Just wondering thank you and thanks for your work.

I believe so since Hot Toys designed their bodies and heads to be interchangeable :) cheers
