Marvel Legends Infinity War - BLACK WIDOW!

Avengers Infinity War: Wave 2 (Cull Obsidian BAF) - Black Widow - Hasbro 2018

After we got that beautiful Black Widow figure way back in 2014's Marvel Legends Winter Solder line, I honestly didn't think I would need another Scarlett Johansson figure. I thought that figure was near perfection. And sure enough the next few Black Widow figures were just simple repaints (the Amazon exclusive 4-pack and the weird Hulkbuster re-release). But then several months ago the Avengers: Infinity War promos started to hit and suddenly our Natasha Romanoff had a pretty distinct redesign with blonde hair and a green vest. I still wasn't sure if this would warrant a new figure purchase, but when early in-hand pics of this figure started popping up I knew I would cave. Her facesculpt is a subtle but significant improvement of her previous figure, and the blonde/green coloring gives her a pretty unique overall design in comparison. At this point I'm not even sure what other MCU figures I'm even wishing for. (The upcoming Sif figure is the only other one I can think of). Let's check out Black Widow below!

Black Widow comes with an extra set of closed-fist hands, a large bo staff (that breaks into two half-bos), and two little black things that are maybe weapons or ammo clips. They fit in her thigh holsters - which further confounds me.

Her vest is removable and her torso sculpt underneath is pretty similar to the Winter Soldier Black Widow figure. All the pieces seem slightly retooled, but seem to be based off that original figure. The bust line is smaller to accommodate the vest and the abdominal piece is now missing the sculpted best, but otherwise seems identical.

Natasha comes with the torso of Cull Obsidian.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the 2014 Winter Soldier Figure.

And with the recent ToyBiz style figure.



  1. I was so shocked to find out the vest was removeable. Am hoping to get a hold of at least a couple of these, so I can use to replace the Winter Soldier wave cinematic Nat.
