Whew I thought I would never get my hands on this figure. Between being an absolutely gorgeous rendition of Scarlett Johansson, a short-packed female, and the placeholder for the Mandroid build-a-figure torso, this Black Widow has become quite the holy grail for Marvel collectors lately. All props go to my new geek-buddy Carl who snagged me an extra (the best part was the clandestine toy swap out of the trunk of a car in the grocery store parking lot!) This figure is everything she's cracked up to be. Utterly gorgeous headsculpts, great articulation, and amazing detailing on the costume. I haven't seen the movie yet so I can't speak to accuracy, but I have a hunch she's spot-on. The only minor let-down is her lack of personal accessories (i.e. guns). She has extra hands with gun-gripping poses, but no guns aside from those sculpted into her holsters. Although I will gladly sacrifice all future weapons for alternate heads like Black Widow comes with. They are equally fantastic and I'm tempted to hunt down another figure just to display them both. Let's check Black Widow out below!
The headsculpt is perfect from every angle. I'm assuming it's a 3-D scan, but even so it's one of the nicest scans I've seen.
The Marvel Legends Infinite Series - Captain America: The Winter Soldier line is a Build-a-Figure series with each figure containing a piece on the deluxe Mandroid figure. Black Widow comes with the torso and shoulder gun.
Black Widow comes with two heads and two sets of hands.
Her articulation and poseability is awesome!
Time for some Comparison Shots!
Here she is with the DC Collectibles Superwoman that I reviewed last week.
