Marvels’ The Avengers is taking the world by storm and seeing the iconic characters we all know and love together on screen for the first time is a genuine thrill. Obvious changes were made to each hero, especially in the costume department, and the most extreme difference between the comic book and the film is the appearance of Hawkeye. The creators of the movie decided to base their version on the Ultimate Hawkeye, which meant the classic costume worn by Clint Barton would continue to exist only on ink and paper. Luckily, Kotobukiya has a new statue in production that captures the original vision that Stan Lee and Don Heck had when they created the character back in 1964.
This product, which features the arrow-slinging superhero in his traditional dark blue and purple costume, is part of the Fine Art Statue line and stands nearly 13 inches tall (in 1/6 scale).
Sculpted by Erick Sosa, Hawkeye stands triumphantly on a rocky terrain base that matches those on the previously released Classic Avengers statues of Thor, Captain America and Iron Man so that they can be displayed together.
One interesting detail has been added to the base of this piece, as the severed arm and head of perennial Avengers’ nemesis Ultron are displayed near Hawkeye’s feet. The arrow through Ultron’s eye is a nice little bonus that proves what a deadly marksman Hawkeye truly is.
This sculpture has the same level of exquisite detail that Kotobukiya is known for and would make an excellent addition to the collection of any avid Avengers fan.
Hawkeye Classic Avengers will be available in November 2012 for the suggested retail price of $209.00 (USD).
