packaging1Packaging

As usual Marvel Select has some of the best collector-grade packaging on the market. The front window displays the figure entirely, along with the base and accessories. The back of the packaging shows off the figure on the assembled base and gives a bio on Hawkeye.

One of the neatest features for Select figures is the large artwork panel on the side of the packaging. Funny enoughthis artwork shows off A Hawkeye but not THIS Hawkeye. It’s from Dark Reign Hawkeye so that’s actually Bullseye.

sculptpaint1Sculpt

Simply put, this sculpt is beautiful. The detailing on the shoulder chainmail is extremely intricate, as-is the straps holding it onto the torso. No detail was left out, even the Avengers A on his belt pouch is sculpted on instead of just painted on.

10/10

Paint

The blue cast body makes the dark purple painted details really pop. No noticeable quality control issues either, it’s just a simple but fantastic paint job.

articulation1Articulation

18+ POA. Ball-jointed head. Ball-hinged shoulders & hips. Hinged knees, elbows & ankles. Swivel wrists, waist & thighs. It’s solid articulation but I wish there was more arm-movement for posing with the bow.

accessories1Accessories

Hawkeye comes with an array of accessories including his bow, 4 arrows and the well-sculpted quiver. One of the arrows includes a molded on miniature Wasp sitting on the arrow head. You’ll notice two of the arrows are missing their heads, it’s because they fit into the base.

What can I say about his included base/stand? Wow. It features a destroyed Ultron drone laying in rubble next to a broken wall. The amount of detail for a figure stand/base is insane, one of the best I’ve ever seen. I won’t be surprised if it’s re-used when the Avengers 2: Age of Ultron comes out.

Accuracy

This Hawkeye figure is a highly accurate blend of his classic looks. With the fingerless gloves i’d say it’s closest to his Volume 3 appearance.

With a beautiful well-painted highly-comic accurate sculpt i’d recommend picking this one up if you’re a fan of Hawkeye or the Avengers in general. For you team builders, he’d look great in a classic Avenger lineup.

9.4/10
