Clint Barton, the former criminal-turned-Avenger known as Hawkeye, has been seeing a meteoric rise in popularity thanks, in no small part, to his role in Marvel Studio's "The Avengers" film. Well, now you can hipster-ishly show your friends that you've loved Hawkeye since before it was cool with the new Hawkeye Classic Avengers Fine Art Statue from Kotobukiya! Hawkeye is the fourth statue to be revealed from the Classic Avengers line, and if he looks to be made of the same incredible quality as the Captain America we reviewed previously. Still, as nice as this statue looks, our favorite part is the Ultron head on his base that has been skewered through the eye by on of Barton's arrows.
Read on for all the details (and a ton of photos) straight from the fine folks at Kotobukiya.
MARVEL COMICS HAWKEYE CLASSIC AVENGERS FINE ART STATUE
Created in 1964 by Stan Lee and artist Don Heck, Clint Barton was an orphan working in a carnival who learned archery to become a master marksman. After dabbling in crime he chose the path of righteousness and became a costumed superhero, working alongside the Avengers for years and gaining huge popularity among Marvel’s readers. Barton joins the original trio of Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man in his iconic original costume: HAWKEYE CLASSIC AVENGERS! You’ve seen the latest incarnation of Hawkeye in the Avengers film and now you can celebrate his classic look in this amazing new Fine Art statue.
Wearing his traditional dark blue and purple costume, Hawkeye defends the Earth from the greatest threats with a smirk on his face and the Avengers to back him up. The master archer stands on a rocky outcropping, resting his right arm on his knee as he surveys the battlefield looking for his next target. The hero’s sculpt really captures the character from the features of his classic costume to the subtle details of his pose like Barton’s thumb testing the edge of his bladed arrow and the flowing movement of his cloth-like tabard. Every element of Hawkeye’s classic costume has been recreated from the skin-tight cowl with pointed mask and “H” logo to the scale mail-like chest piece, bracelets, and retro cuffed boots. And while he holds his trusty bow and one arrow at the ready, look closely to see that the hero’s quiver is still fully stocked! As a special addition, Hawkeye’s base even includes the severed arm and head of Avenger’s foe Ultron, with an arrow sticking out of the robot’s eye for good measure.
Sculpted by Erick Sosa, Classic Avengers Hawkeye stands nearly 13 inches tall (1/6 scale). His rocky terrain base matches those on the other Classic Avengers, the previously released Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man so you can display them individually or as a team!
Available in November 2012.
