Though it seems as if Hot Toys is straying a bit from their normally excellent attention to detail and articulation with the Captain America: Civil War Ant-Man figure, they’re really stepped in up in terms of accessories.
While the world is raving about the new Captain America: Civil War trailer, on my shelf, it’s still The Age of Ultron.
If all you know about Hawkeye is that he’s a guy who shoots arrows in the Avengers movies, then you don’t know anything about Hawkeye. Lucky for you, then, there’s an excellent comic-book series that shows you just how awesomely complicated Clint Barton is. For example, he’s great with boats.
Addressing criticisms that he’s outclassed by the rest of the Avengers, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye gifted The Tonight Show audience with a soulful song about his secret super powers, which include collecting scarves, free guac and Mario Kart.

Adding to their long list of pretty amazing look-alike figures, Hong Kong collectible company Hot Toys has recently released the underappreciated archer, Hawkeye, to their Avengers lineup of the 6-inch Movie Masterpiece collection. The figure was originally slated for a September release, but was delayed until late…
"There is always the risk that you will run out of arrows. There is never a risk that The Incredible Hulk will run out of Hulk." Hawkeye from the Avengers suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous Nintendo president in the latest installment of Nintendo Gamer's lost Iwata Asks files.
This November Capcom fighting fans will feel the vengeance of Ghost Rider, the sting of Hawkeye's arrows, the fury of Firebrand, and the sexy skill of Strider, four of twelve new characters joining the battle in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Flying an RC helicopter? Sure, that's fun for a little while. Flying an RC helicopter that can shoot both video and still photos? That's good for a lifetime of creepy stalking memories.
