Marvel Legends TRU Exclusive Avengers 3-Pack - Kate Bishop (Hawkeye)

You know that lull period I was talking about previously. It didn't last very long. Lol. Here's a look at the Kate Bishop Hawkeye from the Marvel Legends TRU Exclusive 3-pack.

Kate Bishop aka Hawkeye is a member of the Young Avengers. She took up the Hawkeye mantle when Clint Barton was presumed dead and has continued using the name with Clint's blessing when he returned. This figure is of her in her later appearance. I actually prefer her other costume, the one with the scarf and coattails. That's not to say this doesn't look good. I think Hasbro did a great job with her. I like the head sculpt. She looks really cool and glamorous with those gold framed dark glasses. She has gloss pink lipstick on which is nice! I like the way her hair is styled. She's weaaring a hair band and there's good detail. It's unique. The body looks good. It shows how athletic she is. The torso is new. Her top is stretched out on top of her chest. I thought it was similar to Hellcat's at first but it's not. I believe the arms and legs are from Beetle from the Absorbing Man BAF series. Her costume is really simple. It's just a plain purple throughout. Flesh paint was used for her shoulder and at hips. The paint apps could better There are blemishes in those areas I just mentioned. The boot tops are separate pieces, as is the belt. I like that they painted they belt buckle.  

A close-up of her face. Her dark glasses were sculpted on. The frame is gold in colour. I'm a little annoyed that they missed a spot above the left lens. There are tiny purple specks on her lenses. I'm not sure if it was intended. I like it as it make it seem like there's light being reflected off her glasses. You can better see her gloss pink lipstick here.

Accessories. She comes with a bow and a quiver of arrows. The bow is the same one that came with Hawkeye from the Rocket Raccoon BAF series. It's silver in colour here and there's some black paint on the front. It looks like a proper bow. I would have liked if they painted the grip.  

We should be happy with a quiver of arrows right? Wrong. The arrows were sculpted on the quiver and are not removable. There is space in the quiver if you had your own arrows but really they should have included at least one. The feathers of the arrows were painted which is nice. There's not a lot of detail on the quiver aside from some sculpted seams. It pegs onto her belt and can be positioned as you like. 

Articulation. She's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Neck articulation is hindered by her hair. She can turn her head and look down okay if you don't mind bending her front locks of hair. She cannot look up. I like the torso joint. It is similar to Mockingbird's. There's good range of movement and she can bend to her side. 

Comparison shots.

Great figure! Love it! Thanks for viewing!
