While Hot Toys is the leader in the lifelike representation of our favorite characters, ThreeA is doing a great job with “stylized” versions. With artist Ashley Wood at the helm, they have released sixth scale versions of Iron Man, Doctor Doom, Ultron, and Spider-Man. Each figure has Wood’s own particular spin on the character, while remaining true to its core appearance.
Based more on the comic book version than the movie with her yellow “Widow’s sting” gauntlets and circular utility belt, this Widow has a look reminiscent of the Bruce Timm animated universe. She seems like she would fit into the Gotham City landscape perfectly, much to Batman’s chagrin.
The figure comes with two guns and holsters, three different sets of hands, a black overcoat, and a second head adorned with a mask. The mask looks very similar to Bucky’s from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I think it looks cool, but knowing how good the Widow is at being a spy/assassin, I don’t think she really needs it.
Black Widow is the first of three Marvel women characters to get this treatment. Future releases will include Madam Hydra and Spider-Woman.
You can check out more pictures of Black Widow in the gallery below. The figure costs $160, and pre-orders begin on August 31st on Bambalandstore.com.
So what do you think? Will you be picking up this new Black Widow figure? Do you prefer this interpretation or Scarlett Johansson’s? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
