New Marvel Legends Exclusive Comic Based Black Widow Figures Revealed

Recommended Posts

Being that "I wish they woulda" guy here, but wouldn't it have been cool if they had included a Colleen Wing comic head sculpt with the white one? I know they don't really have all that much to do with each other, I'm just a constant observer of missed opportunities. Can't help it.

Not exact but I think this is what Hasbro was going for.

I would also add that the old Pre-ML Black Widow that Toy Biz did came in the "Gray suit with jacket" variety.

 

As I think on it,  I wouldn't be surprised if sometime this year someone/something comes with a comic-Yelena head that we could swap onto any given Widow body.

Someone on FB said that it's based on artwork from Frank Miller though I've been unable to locate it.

 Wal-Mart though... gee thanks, why hasn't Walfart been banned yet from receiving exclusives

 

Yeah. Its like Hasbro doesn't care how much they fumble it for the consumer.

Please PLEASE tell me that white suit Widow isn't the same thing from the rider set that had that ridiculous seam going down her neck to the navel....

She wore an Avengers bomber jacket regularly during the Bob Harras/Steve Epting era. Here's her in Avengers #378 for example:

It was a 90's thing :)

All I can say is I've never had any problem finding Walmart OR Target exclusive. There have been times I only saw them once, but I found 'em anyway.

My heart just skipped a beat when I saw they were making the grey Black Widow that I've been wanting for years,  and then I noticed they threw that bomber jacket on her.  So close Hasbro.

Never cared for the grey suit. Was that Miller that came up with it? I know oftimes the black on the Black Widow came out as blue, but not sure what the point of the grey suit was. Grey Widow doesn't have the same impact. Didn't mind the short hairstyle. Depending on how hard it is to find this outside of walfart, I'll give it a shot....

It's always been my take that the gray suit was just another "cheat" for portraying the color black. You know, like the blue highlights on Venom or Spidey's black suit. Of course that's just me.

I hate those legs they used on the white widow. They're frail. I can't pose my Vintage Storm figure properly without a stand because of those legs.

Actually, those are the newer style legs. They're a bit thicker in the thighs than the mold used on the Gray Widow (Kate Bishop) buck. I think they just added some mass to the thighs and the hips are interchangeable. I've been meaning to try to swap them out to see how well they match. Guess I'll give it a shot with the Vintage BW and the Riders BW.

These images again show how inaccurate is to use teenage Kate Bishops skinny legs for the  Black Widow, who supposed to be in peak human physical shape. Don’t get me wrong, I am really happy we are getting these figures but I wish she had different legs, like white costume comic version does or Emma Frost legs.

It was during Miller's run as writer, Klaus Janson was the artist.

90s comic costumes were not the greatest. Bomber jackets, trenchcoats, pony tails, shades, huge pockets , huge guns.

That Walmart Black Widow, there was a similar one in a 2 pack. Never got it but, I am hoping I could get this new one. I like her whole design.

Here’s Natasha from the issue I referenced above (March 1994, Captain America issue 425).

The new figure is spot on with this look.

Growing up with this comic in my collection set this appearance as my default mental image for Natasha. I always considered kit bashing to recreate it. I am SO stoked for this new figure.
