Product Specification
Deadly and dangerous, Black Widow wears a skin-tight costume that leaves little to the imagination. The shiny black outfit accentuates every curve and the long lines of her legs, which end with stiletto heeled boots. Hugging Natasha Romanoff's waist is a stylish new belt, and on her arms are golden wristbands. As the sexy spy whips around to look behind her with a pistol at the ready, her intricately carved short bob hair cut floats in the air behind her. Black Widow stands provocatively atop a specially-designed base.

Black Widow stands 7 3/5 inches tall (1/8 scale), and features a solid construction of pvc and abs plastics. Sculpted by Yu Ishii, the super-spy comes packaged in an attention-grabbing window box.
