The Black Widow movie (which is now available to Disney+ subscribers for free instead of forcing you to cough up an extra AU$40 for it) was surprisingly fun for a story delving into the Black Widow’s dark past as an assassin. That fun came primarily from Natasha’s little sister Yelena, played by Florence Pugh, whose sarcasm and pocket enthusiasm won over audiences immediately. I’m certain at least a few of those audience members can’t wait at the chance to pay hundreds for this typically outstanding 12-inch action figure of Yelena from Hot Toys.

You can pre-order her here for $US270 (AU$367) from Sideshow Toys, but it’ll be a full year at least before she arrives at your door. Also, in case you missed it, Hot Toys also recently revealed a Loki and Sylvie…
