The well-known Hong Kong toy brand Hot Toys has recently launched the latest work “Kate Bishop 1/6 scale Action Figure” from the Marvel TV series “Hawkeye“! Let’s take a look at its performance!
The story of the 2021 TV series “Hawkeye” takes place one year after the 2019 film “Avengers: Endgame”. Hawkeye “Clint Barton” accompanied his children to New York for Christmas. Meanwhile, as a Hawkeye’s big fan “Kate Bishop” also came to New York and accidentally put on the Barton’s Ronin suit; the two who met because of the Ronin suit later joined forces to against the enemies that the time Barton established as the Ronin.
This Kate Bishop action figure adopts a 1/6 scale that is commonly used by Hot Toys. And its overall height is 28cm, approx. 11.02 inches.
It reproduces the appearance of Kate Bishop in Barton’s Robin suit from the TV series.
Compared with the above poster, the depiction of the appearance is not bad. In addition to the iconic Robin suit with good details, the arrow quiver on the back, the left arm guard with purple carbon fiber patterns, and the small bag equipped with arrows on the waist are all reproduced this time.
Kate Bishop’s entire suit is made of real fabric materials, including the top and pants that are carefully tailored.
You can see the purple long-sleeved top, which is layered and colorful. The zipper on the top also seems can be pull down. This needs to be practiced by the fans who bought it.
The head sculpt is definitely something to be mentioned.
The head sculpt can only be said to be unsatisfactory.
Although details like the bandage on the chin are depicted, the whole facial expression is rather rigid.
It can only be said that you can recognize who it is at first sight. But not quite the same.
The overall face sculpt is a little older than the real face. I hope that it can be slightly adjusted when it is officially released in the future.
In addition, there are over 28 points of articulation in the main body this time, which allows you to display this action figure in many poses.
Although there are so many points of articulation, there is no articulation exposed in appearance. At the same time, the posture of kneeling on one knee is also easy to achieve, so its motion is not affected.
In addition, we must admit that the bow with wood grain patterns has a good texture.
With the included arrows, you can show the posture of shooting arrows out of this bow.
There are a total of 6 individual arrows, and all of them can be placed in the arrow quiver on the back.
And there are 6 trick arrowheads of different styles hanging on the waist bag, all of which can be interchanged with the arrowheads on the arrows.
Interestingly, there is another figure behind this Kate Bishop action figure, presumably it should be Hawkeye in a purple suit. Based on past experience, Hot Toys will definitely launch a new Hawkeye figure. Let’s look forward to it together.
The accessories of this figure are not so many, in addition to what I have described above, the rest is interchangeable hands and a theme figure stand.
The figure stand is a common hexagonal specification with series logo and character name on it.
In general, the costume of this action figure is remarkable.
For the head sculpt, I hope Hoy Toys can improve it a step further, and it would be even better if there is an additional head sculpt with other expressions.
Fans who like Kate Bishop can consider collecting.
