Marvel Universe Nighthawk

Here's a look at the Marvel Universe Nighthawk.

First just a quick word about removing the figure from the tray. I'm sure you know how but sometimes we lose ourselves when opening a new figure. Like I did. I tried to pull Nighthawk out from the front. With his big cape it was a real stuggle. The easiest way is to pop the head off and remove the cape from the back first. I think I spent a few minutes stuggling before I realised this.

The figure is nice. He'll stand out amongst the rest with the shiny yellow of his costume and large cape. I like the cape. Its unique. It weighs him down though and he has trouble standing with it. There's some minor paint overlapping issues on his face and mask but I'm okay with it. The design on his costume is well painted except for the two points which connects to the lower torso.

He does not have any accessories aside from his cape. The collectible comic shot is of The Last Defenders #1. 

Articulation. Hes got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, single hinge elbows, wrist swivel, torso pivot, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He could do with a wrist hinge so he can use his claws better.  


Comparison shots.

Nighthawk is a nice addition. I'm not sure where to put him. I'll figure something out. Thanks for viewing!

Far out! I dig this one. This is a good wave of MU's- actually the last few waves have been fun
