Natasha for that badass on your list…


One of the big stories this year on the merchandise front was how Black Widow was mishandled when Avengers: Age of Ultron was released — with Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha action figures not as widely available as her Y-chromosomed teammates. There was plenty of blame to go around on that one, so I’m not going to call out any specific company.

I’m just glad that Diamond Select Toys has gotten this excellent Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow out in time for the holidays. Diamond makes great, detailed action figures, with dioramas and accessories at a reasonable price: About $25, depending on where you get them. Natasha, who’s in 7-inch scale, comes with a base, a change of hands and her zappy nunchuk things.

Me? I don’t even have the rest of the movie Avengers (except Ant-Man) — but I’d like Black Widow skulking around my shelf.
