In my opinion, this figure has the best resemblance of Scarlett Johansson as compared to the rest of my collection.
The paint application on the facial sculpt is great with realistic skin texture that Hot Toys is very good at. The skin color matches very well between the face and neck which extends to the chest.
Her boots have little bit of weathering. They restrict the ankle articulation and thus, not much dynamic poses you can get from the figure.
Hot Toys has been improving its hair rooting technology. Her hair color looks natural and convincing.
Her handguns look "very plastic" as no weathering is done on the surface. However, they fit nicely in the holsters on both thighs.
The above is the extended nightsticks Black Widow used in most of her fighting scenes.
Although the jumpsuit is fitting, it does not restrict the overall articulation.
Due to the design of the jumpsuit, upper body moves and turns better than lower body.
The right above is my favorite picture taken from the character wielding her handguns :)
As the figure has pretty tight joints, it can stand on its own.
Take a closer view at the fantastic head sculpt once again...You may look at the box art and design here.

This mask has similar texture with the suit whereas the color schemes for both mask and suit are close.
There are five sets of eye plates with different expressions. You can mix and match those eye plates to create the expressions you like. Each eye plate has magnet which allows you to attach onto the mask securely.
The leather like belt and pouches look realistic. Both handguns fit perfectly in the holsters on both sides of the thighs.
The dagger with metal blade fits nicely in the sheath on Deadpool's left boot. For the boots, they are designed and made into two parts. So, no issue for ankle movement.
Deadpool carries two katana swords on his back. The scabbard of the swords is also held in place with magnet.
His outfit is well tailored with right amount of weathering, dirt and damage. As the material is stretchable, it doesn't restrict the articulation of the figure. However, you still have to be careful when bending the arms as the black portion of the outfit can be torn apart.
For your information, the blades of the katana swords are made of metal as well.
Take a closer look at Deadpool wielding his katana swords...
You can get lots of great poses from the figure as it has pretty tight body joints.
The last weapon which I forget to show you here is his shurikens. Anyway, you may see the box art and design here.
Overall, I am pleased to get this figure as it has tons of accessories and weapons to play with :P
