Whether a fan of Wanda Maximoff’s depiction in the comic book pages or on the big screen, the Hot Toys Scarlet Witch (New Avengers Version) Sixth Scale Figure should make for a welcome addition to the stash of any ardent Marvel superhero collector.
One of two Hot Toys Scarlet Witch sixth scale figures inspired by Avengers: Age of Ultron (including the standard variant), the “New Avengers Version” portrays of the “weird” Maximoff twin as she appeared in the closing moments of the film. Typical of pieces in company’s Movie Masterpiece Series (MMS) line-up, the movie-accuracy is utterly jaw dropping. The figure features the physique, hand-painted facial sculpt, and flowing brown locks that capture the look of actress, Elizabeth Olsen with uncanny fidelity. Accentuating the look is the form-fitting, painstakingly crafted costume consisting of a crimson corset undergarment, faux-leather long jacket, removable black forearm gauntlets, sleek black pants, and calf-high boots. From the red stitching on the sides of the trousers to the range of textures and colors of the upper part of Wanda’s costume, the attention to detail wholly impressive.
Complementing its screen-accurate visuals, Hot Toys’ 11-inch Scarlet Witch (New Avengers Version) Sixth Scale Figure boasts 28 points of articulation for collectors to manipulate. The poseability is further accentuated by the addition of a two-piece adjustable figure stand (emblazoned with a nameplate and the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” logo), six interchangeable hands (three lefts and three rights), and a pair of translucent-red energy accessories that slip over the hands to present the powerful young Avenger wielding her Mind Stone-given abilities. The extras enable a wide variety of posing options though the pursuit of more dynamic action poses may come at the risk of damaging Wanda’s intricately crafted outfit.
Originally available in North America exclusively though Sideshow Collectibles, the Hot Toys Scarlet Witch (New Avengers Version) Sixth Scale Figure released back in July of this year at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $224.99 USD.
