Black Widow (Hot Toys)

Its a yet another Hot Toys post!


Today, I am featuring the sexy girl spy, Black Widow, portrayed by the sultry Scarlett Johanssen from the Avenger's Movie. I have to say, the hairstyle and sculpt of the Avenger's version of Black Widow trumps Iron Man 2 Black Widow by a mile. All in all, Natasha Romanov ver. 2 is looking pretty badass.

Nevermind that Scarlett doesn't do a Russian Accent. Never mind that she doesn't even give a good portrayal of Russian Decent to put more depth into the character. Her curves, moves and red hair make up for it all.

Don't get me wrong. I am not trying to objectify her (Despite the irony of me having an action figure of the Black Widow. In my defense, I have the whole avengers team. Hence, I am impartial. :p) But let's face it, Scarlett as Black Widow is a major crowd pleaser rather than a massive spoiler of the character and the Marvel franchise.

Enough Talk! Have a look at the pics and tell me you are not impress by Hot Toy's works.

 The whole One Girl two Guns theme reminds me of so many other Female heroine. I wonder if it is more prevalent than Guys with dual pistols.

The Black Widow "side-glancing" like a boss

 Aside from her Martial Art prowess, spy expertise and her pistol wielding skills, she is mocked for being one of the most useless Avenger. Something which was parodied in a Robot Chicken Short "A Critical Component" below.

It's time for some lady kung-fu kick assery!

Comparatively with the other head sculpts from the Avenger Series of Heroes, Scarlett's Head Sculpt is the best one of them all. The likeness is simply breath-taking.


Despite the great likeness to the actress, there have been criticism that the body type is not too proportional to Scarlett's figure but I am presuming that they are just using a default female body size as I am sure the Selina Kyle Cat Woman figure is probably using the same template too.

 The Crew, Their Own Personal Hot Toy figure of themselves and adorable Chinese Kids in their respective hero get ups. (AWESOME!)

In my previous post, we were also talking about the comparison between the Avenger and Winter Soldier version of Captain America. The same question goes out to you all today. Which version of Black Widow appeals to you more? Give me your thoughts!

New Hairstyle for the New Black Widow

 And New Material for her outfit.

Hope you all enjoy the pics. More awesome ones are on our Facebook page link here. I do hope all you Marvel fans are enjoying Captain America: The Winter Soldier. For those who haven't watched it yet, I shall keep my lips seal on how frigging AWESOME it is. In fact, quite honestly, I would say that it is the BEST Marvel Hero Film in leading up to the Avenger 2 Film. (Yes, it trumps both Iron Man 3 and Thor: the Dark World).

Regardless, Marvel is really nailing it in Hollywood for Epic Blockbusters. Then again, who doesn't already know that?

Till the next post.



  1. Finally, you are back! I have watched the Winter Soldier and I must say it was really awesome!

    I like the new figure of the Black Widow. Looking more slick than the previous one! But both figures definitely trumps the first Black Widow figure.

  2. Man, The Avenger Series of Figures look really awesome. I like both versions. Hot Toys really nailed it for the two. Great ones Jiaqi!

  3. It has been awhile since ihave seen any post. I am not really a collector of hot toys but I got to give the company its due recognition. These pieces of work are really amazing! Great pics and I do hope to see more Military stuff soon!

  4. The Robot chicken Short is hilarious! I for one prefer the Avenger Version of Black Widow. To me, it seems to look more like her compared to the new one. I think the new sculpt is nothing groundbreaking compared to the Avenger one. Aside from then, great post and fantastic shots!

  5. It is always great to see you guys back and reading the articles and appreciating the pics.@POI, Hot toys sculpts are really great! @Landon, I am with you on preferring the Black Widow from Avengers. (Maybe I am bias? :p) I too feel that she looks more like scarlet than the new one.@Shen, the first Black Widow Figure was mehh. And The hairstyle wasn't really my cup of tea too.
