This is the second Scarlett Johansson figure produced by Hot Toys. The earlier one was for the movie character "Silken Floss" in "The Spirit".
The figure has likeness of Johansson but not perfect. The facial sculpt is beautifully executed with detailed eyebrows, life-like eyes and glossy lips. The lips are well sculpted and they look realistic.
The bracelets are add-on accessories to the jumpsuit. As usual, the sculpting and paint job done on the weapons are great. The pistols with removable magazines fit very well to the gloved hands and the darker one fits in the holster as well.
The boots are soft that maximise her ankle movement. The leg joints are tight that allow the figure to pose without using the display stand.
Hot Toys is also the first time to release the female figures with rooted curly hair (please correct me if I were wrong). For Black Widow, she has brownish red long curly hair. The S.H.I.E.L.D. logo is also printed on each side of the arms.
I like the soft texture of the facial skin and the colour tone looks natural. The paint job done on the eyelashes and eyeliner is very good too.
The tight jumpsuit is tailored with a 1/6 zipper in front. But the jumpsuit restricts some body movement. For instance, you are only able to raise her arms or bend her elbows to a certain position.
Besides the waist belt, Black Widow has another grey belt that holds holster and pouches.
Although Hot Toys "Black Widow" does not have a perfect likeness of Johansson, she is still a gorgeous looking figure. I highly recommend to pick it up. You may click here to view its box packaging.
