    I’ll make this review short: the figure is great. Like 99.9% of Diamond Select figures, this thing is awesome. Even better is that since this is a reissue you don’t have to pay upwards of $80+ to own it.

    The package includes: Figure, base (with 2 arrows to attach to base), bow, and two loose arrows. One of the arrows has a small model of Wasp attached, but I would have preferred the arrow have Antman as a throwback to the Avengers cover. I understand why Antman is not included as there is a small of Antman included with the Black Widow figurine. As you can see in the image, two of the arrows can be place sticking out of the defeated Ultron and this looks really cool. The base has a of heft to it and the sculpting and detailing are superb, especially for the price. Hawkeye is in his classic uniform and the paint and sculpt look great.

    While I love the figure I do have some gripes. One of my biggest complaints about Diamond Select figures in the past has been the looseness of joints which can sometimes make displaying figures a pain in the butt even when they have included bases. You can fix this by buying something like the Japanese figure display bases, but when a figure comes with a cool action base it can be frustrating not to be able to use it. While this base isn’t a misstep like the Black Widow figure (no pegs…really?) it does only have 1 peg hole for the left foot and I’ve found it can be difficult to keep the figure in a decent looking pose AND ensure that it doesn’t fall off the base. Second gripe is that the molding on the hand isn’t tight enough to hold the bow decently; it can fall out with no real effort. The figure also has no real decent way of being posed in a way in which Hawkeye is drawing back with the bow with the Wasp arrow drawn, or even with the included extra arrow. The joints are not loose at all, for now, so that’s a saving grace.

    Overall I love the figure. I can make some things work, like using a clear rubber band to hold the bow in place or jiggering the model to where it displays securely. However, I felt the missteps were enough to keep me from being able to give this a 5/5, though I do think its a must have for Marvel, Avengers, and Hawkeye fans. I am happy to see them reissue some of their more in demand figures so collectors don’t have to be at the mercy of price hiking sellers.

    If you have any questions please ask.

    This figure is great in all of the joints and it has the little weapons that Hawkeye comes with his owners and all cost on it is way better then the movies which satisfied me because the other figure of Hawkeye is a huge disappointment.

    Now the base is what got my blood boiling.trying to stand him and the base was practically impossible when you are trying to point his bow and arrow at the enemy.
    you have read my review….that’s my story and I’m stickin to it

    No Avengers fan should miss this awesome figure. Amazing detail and and accessories. The Ultron base he comes with is incredible. The only gripe I have with Hawkeye is that his bow doesn’t stay in place with his hand. His hand is wide open, so you might want to use a blow dryer to close his hand. Other than that, its an amazing figure 5/5.
