Hawkeye is kind of the odd man out when it comes to the Avengers. As such, he kind of gets the short end of the stick. Rarely is a dude with a bow and arrow cooler than Iron Man, Captain America or Black Panther. He's just an average dude who happens to be really, really skilled with a bow.
As such, he doesn't often get the opportunity to outshine his peers. This newly revealed figure from Hot Toys might be the one exception, however, thanks to a little assistance from Ant-Man.
In true Hot Toys fashion, this 1/6th scale figure of Hawkeye, based on his appearance from the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, is about as lifelike as it can possibly be. The level of detail on display is insane. Not only has the collectible manufacturer perfectly recreated actor Jeremy Renner's likeness and costume, but it even comes with a number of true-to-film accessories that fans will get a kick out of.
What kind of accessories are we talking about? Arrows, of course. Lots and lots of arrows. After all, Hawkeye needs a different type of arrow for every occasion, and this collectible figure comes with 11 different arrowheads to customize the figure with. He also comes with a number of different hands, a pistol (for some reason), sunglasses and last but certainly not least, Ant-Man.
Yes, as in the superhero. You may remember a shot from the most recent Captain America: Civil War trailer in which Ant-Man can be seen leaping off one of Hawkeye's arrows and running up Iron Man's arm. Now fans can recreate that iconic moment with this figure, as it comes with a micro-sized Ant-Man riding atop one of Hawkeye's arrowheads. By including this arrowhead, Hot Toys has made all the arrow options obsolete. Why fire pointy objects when you can fire superheroes?
It's a cool little surprise that makes this figure even more appealing for collectors. There's no price for the figure just yet, but it's expected to ship in the third or fourth quarter of 2016. Captain America: Civil War arrives in theaters May 6.
