After previously acquiring Black Widow, I have happened upon the equally-hard-to-find Hasbro 3 3/4 inch figures of arrow-slinger Hawkeye and depth-perceptionless superhero-wrangler Nick Fury. How do they shape up?
Firstly, it should probably be stated that rather than an ultra-detailed collector targeted line, these are primarily designed for a small child to stick up his nose. The impulse is to say that they’re a little goofy but, on closer inspection, perhaps they’re not quite as goofy as you might initially think. They’re far from masterpieces but at this scale they do the job. And let’s be honest, I think those golden years of collector friendly mass market product have ended. Toy stores are for kids again. The man-children roam online.
Oh, did I neglect to mention that I also got another Black Widow?
Anywaaaaaay... Nick Fury muthafugga...
The elephant in the room is the ridiculous projectile firing space bazooka accessory which is a sober reminder than this toy exists purely to blind irritating siblings. The transparent purple-headed missile has gotta be a homage to the Mace Windu purple lightsaber, if not also a homage to Sam’s own purple-headed missile, you know, for firing at the laaaadies. I have no idea how he's supposed to hold this crazy thing...
Thankfully they do also include a more sedate/realistic accessory option for the not-so-mentally-challenged. He has a pistol (which fits in a holster on his powerful thigh) and a machine gun for spraying people with bullets - you know, like all heroes do.
A SHAM. OF A MAN.
But... other than that they’re pretty cool. These are impossible to find right now, so good luck!
