Thomas reviews Natasha Romanoff‘s new arch-nemesis
Even though the Black Widow solo movie has been delayed until October in Europe (first week of November in the US), like Hasbro, S.H. Figuarts is releasing its figures from the movie. They decided to go with two characters – Natasha Romanoff and the main villain Taskmaster.
For the occasion, Figuarts has decided to change the box creating a Black Widow symbol window and having black & red packaging. The front of the box also features a promotional artwork of the character and a promotional picture of the figure.
Taskmaster comes with plenty of accessories – a pair of interchangeable goggles, an interchangeable hood, 10 interchangeable hands, 1 empty holster, 1 bow with a hand, 1 shield and 1 sword. All these accessories mirror the weapons of the different Avengers, you have a bow in reference to Hawkeye, a shield in reference to Captain America, claws in reference to Black Panther, a gun in reference to Black Widow. All these weapons have orange marks which is kind of Taskmaster’s color.

The figure is highly detailed with great metallic paint on the armor parts. Both the holster and the leg pocket are removable for better posing. The hoods are pretty cool and easy to change. The helmet makes look the character very menacing, I’m looking forward to seeing him in action in the movie! The additional helmet goggles feature some red paint, they also are easy to insert in the helmet.
This figure has 27 points of articulation for the best possible action poses.
A great new addition to the MCU line!
