Marvel Legends Black Widow Action Figures

I know it’s been forever since I last posted on here. Hopefully this year I’ll be able to make more than the occasional post.

Well, in a few short months the Black Widow movie will be released. The character of Natasha Romanova has been one of my favourite comic book characters long before she turned up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

So here’s a look at some of the new Hasbro Marvel Legends 6” scale action figures of the character.

First is the deluxe figure featuring the movie Black Widow with a Scarlett Johanssen likeness. She’s wearing the white costume as seen in the trailer. It comes with various explosion accessories plus a display stand by the looks of it.

That white costume in the movie looks like it’s inspired by a similar white costume from the 2010 Deadly Origin comic miniseries. And as it happens Hasbro are also doing an exclusive figure of the comic book version.

Finally there’s another exclusive figure of Black Widow in the lesser seen 1980s grey outfit with shorter hair from the comics. If I had to choose I much prefer the character in the black outfit and longer hair but I have to say I do like this alternate look.

There is another wave of figures which includes a black costume Black Widow from the movie that I have not included here.

Blade Runner 2019 comic book

This was announced a couple of months ago but I’m only discovering it now. There’s going to be an official Blade Runner comic book set in the time period of the original movie. This seems to feature another blade runner so I’m guessing Deckard doesn’t appear in it.

Titled Blade Runner 2019 it is to be a 12-part series and Titan Comics are putting the first issue is out in July.

Here are the four variant covered, including one that is actually concept art by Syd Mead.

I’d pretty much stopped buying comics but I can see myself making an exception for these.
