I hope Sideshow Collectibles doesn’t mind. My cats make cameo appearances.
Yes, it’s true, Sideshow Collectibles provided The Mary Sue with a Captain America: The Winter Soldier Black Widow Sixth Scale Figure for review. And since it arrived at my house, I can tell you TMS staff is very jealous. [Ed. note: DON’T TALK TO ME ABOUT IT. -Victoria] Understandably. This figure is high on our list (and maybe yours?) of awesome collectables because Scarlett Johansson is awesome, and moreso as Black Widow.
“The world is a vulnerable place but we’re the best qualified to defend it”.
One of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s greatest female spies, Black Widow, will be back in action with Captain America in Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are proud to present the Black Widow Sixth Scale Collectible Figure. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in the film. Featuring a newly developed head sculpt with straight brownish-red real fabric hair, newly designed costume made with multiple materials, detailed weapons and accessories, you won’t want to miss the chance to add this spy to your shelves!
