Marvel Legends Infinite Series Hawkeye (Heroic Age)

Here's a look at the Marvel Legends Infinite Series Hawkeye.

This version of Hawkeye is based on his appearance during The Heroic Age. The face sculpt is poor. He looks quite haggard and old. You think it was his father in the costume. The eyes were poorly painted as well. There's good  sculpted detail on his mask. The shoulder armour, straps and loincloth is one separate piece and is removable. The shoulder armour portion is quite big and rounded. It adds pounds to his already pudgy face. He's on the Bucky Cap body. His left arm is from the movie Winter Soldier.

"He's fast, strong, has a metal arm."

Accessories. He comes with his bow and quiver of arrows, They are the same ones that came with the Marvel NOW! Hawkeye. These are purple in colour though. I'm okay with the quiver but I would have preferred brown or black for the bow.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. The peg for his gear will pop open when he's bent forward or turned at the waist. 

I swapped in the Marvel NOW! Hawkeye's head. I think he looks much better.

Comparison shots.

The face sculpt spoils the figure for me. I think some of you will be disappointed with it as well. Thanks for viewing!
