Poor Hawkguy. Dude gets a shiny new Hot Toys figure for Civil War, and is promptly upstaged by the coolest little bonus accessory possible: a bonus arrow carrying an Ant-Man-shaped payload.
Sure, the 1:6 scale figure of Clint Barton himself — dressed in his new uniform from the upcoming Captain America film — is very nice in and of itself. It comes with a quiver of 16 arrows (and a plethora of alternate arrowheads) as well as a bunch of alternate hands to hold his bow, pistol or dagger.
It is, in general, a pretty bang-on likeness of Jeremy Renner too. But the real star is that special arrowhead with a teen-tiny Ant-Man sculpted on it that lets you recreate this awesome moment from the recent trailer:
It is itself an homage to the classic Ed Hannigan cover to Avengers #223. (If anything, it’s more faithful to the original cover as Ant-Man isn’t hidden inside the arrow like he is in the film.) It’s a very cool addition to what would otherwise be a relatively plain action figure.
The Civil War Hawkeye figure is due for release from August to October this year. It is currently available for preorder at $US220 ($289) on Sideshow Collectibles.
