This new line comes just ahead of the release of Black Widow, the highly anticipated origin story of Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, and includes figures from the movie. Black Widow was famously delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is possibly the last time Scarlett Johansson will reprise her nearly decade-long role. We’re not going to say that Marvel made a mistake but… it could have been Hawkeye who sacrificed himself.
Fans of the hard-core agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. can choose between the Black Widow (Snow Suit Version) and the Taskmaster figures. Black Widow bears a striking resemblance to Johnasson and wears a tailored white snowsuit. She features 10 interchangeable hands that let fans choose which weapon she wields.
The Taskmaster figure represents the new mysterious foe from the movie and is highly posable. He wears a high-tech jumpsuit and a newly created helmet with armor pieces. Like the Black Widow figure, the Taskmaster figure includes interchangeable weapons, including a bow and arrow, a circular shield, and a sword. Both figures come with a figure display stand and a character nameplate.
The Black Widow and Taskmaster figures are now available for preorder for $250 each. For serious fans of the MCU, the price isn’t too crazy considering this is quite possibly the last time the series will be releasing Black Widow movie merch. Fans can purchase the collection online at sideshow.com.
