She finally arrived! My beautiful Black Widow – Natasha Romanova Marvel Premium Format Figure by Sideshow Collectibles finally arrived! And she is beyond beautiful! Like most people, I had been stalking her UPS progress and when I saw she was due for delivery yesterday I couldn’t contain my excitement! Knowing when UPS normally arrives at work, I ran up to the mail room to see if she was waiting for me. That’s when I saw this!
I had no idea the box would be that big! I’ve seen the figure in person, and she’s a good size but I was still blown away. To give you a better idea of the size, here’s the box next to the box that’s used for shipping Hot Toys figures.
While I keep my Hot Toys at work, I knew Natasha would be too big for my desk. It was killing me not being able to just rip open the box and finally see her but my willpower was strong. Once I finally got home though I carefully opened her and put her together! Don’t freak out though, putting her together just meant putting her on the base, attaching her hands, and putting her belt on. The cool thing is magnets are used to keep her hands attached! I thought that was pretty slick. Now without further ado…
The detail on this figure is amazing! Sideshow (who actually made this figure) did a fantastic job. The catsuit is actual fabric which I thought was pretty great. When you think about figures, most of them are completely painted, clothing and all. I love the fact she’s standing in the snow as well. The little zipper is a nice touch but her face is the most amazing part of her. The attention to detail just blows me away. A face can make or break any figure and this one nails it.
I still can’t believe I won her! I can’t thank Sideshow enough!
