|Marvel Legends Hawkeye|
The Marvel Legends Modern Hawkeye is part of the Rocket Racoon Wave but doesn't come with a Build-A-Figure piece. So that being said, you're not obliged to buy him to complete Rocket Racoon. Moreover, you get two options whether to get this Modern Hawkeye or the variant which is the Classic Avengers Hawkeye. Whichever Hawkeye you wanna get, they both look fantastic.
The body mold being used here is the Bucky Cap mold, which Hasbro has been utilizing over and over. Marvel Legends Archangel has the same type of body mold as for this figure. It may not be a huge deal for me because the fact is- it is all expertly sculpted and well proportioned, and always neat looking. Other than his body mold, the utility belt and the quiver straps looked finely detailed with a little bit of texture in it.
This action figure doesn't have much of paint shading or variation, or whatever. Across his chest and abs, and around his boots are streaks of purple painted over this solid black uniform while his belts and straps stand out from the gray paint applied over its much softer plastic material.
Although Hasbro did quite an improvement on his quiver; learning from the Avengers Movie Hawkeye, but still hasn't given us just one single arrow to hold for his other hand. Without an arrow, this Hawkeye figure just doesn't hit the mark. However, I like that Hasbro reuse the modern bow from his predecessor. What's more amazing is that the sculpt on the fletchings and the entire quiver itself is much appealing to look at now.
The articulation of this figure is probably going to be a repeat of those action figures I've reviews with the Bucky Cap mold, but here are all of them. Ball-hinged neck that lets his head move up, down and rotate to each sides. Ball-hinged shoulders, rotation around the biceps and wrists, double-jointed elbows and hinges on the wrists to flex it up or down. Ab crunch and waist swivel are incorporated around the torso. T-joints inside the hips to have Hawkeye's legs move forward and back. Upper-thing swivel, double jointed knees, mid-calf swivel, ankle hinges and ankle pivot are going steady with this figure.
The Modern Hawkeye stands about 6.1 inches tall and he's a great addition to your Modern Avengers display. He may look like the one from the movie but you will see that the shape of his head is much leaner and elongated than that of Jeremy Renner's, And so, it's not really gonna affect how we want to present a strictly comic book style of Avengers.
