Play Arts Kai is back with another crazy entrant to their Marvel Variants line, and—wait. This figure isn’t that crazy. It’s quite restrained, in fact. And kind of totally badass. And it’s Black Widow! Who made this figure, and what have they done with the real Square-Enix?
Hey, y’all! Meet Nannie Doss. Over a period of nearly 30 years, this cheery serial killer chopped multiple limbs off her own family tree, with body count that’s alleged to include four husbands, her mother, one of her mother-in-laws, her two sisters, two of her children, a grandson, and a nephew.
The history of Marvel Merchandise’s long, confusing and mostly terrible history with Black Widow’s presence on toy shelves is exactly that: long, confusing, and mostly terrible. But never fear, true believers — somehow toy-based representation of Black Widow can get even worse! Wait, what?
There’s a distinct lack of Black Widow toys on shelves for Age of Ultron, but that’s not a new problem. I know it. You know it. Now even Mark Ruffalo, Bruce Banner himself, knows it.
As far as hyper-detailed figures that you can buy, Hot Toys is up there as some of the best for your cash. But they definitely have some competition from these jaw-dropping headsculpts by customiser Xiang Zhang.
The last time Hot Toys released a Black Widow figure, we were understandably amazed/petrified at the company's ability to practice the dark arts presumably required to create their exquisite toys. But now they're back with Johansson's soul in tow for a second outing, and she looks great.
Okay, this is getting ridiculous. As we've got to see more and more merchandise for Age of Ultron recently, one constant refrain I've found myself asking is 'Where the hell is Black Widow?'. Well, now there's at least something coming for the super spy. Kind of.
When Marvel announced plans for a Captain Marvel movie last week, fans were overjoyed - but some still called for Black Widow to get a movie of her own. Comics writer Nathan Edmondson showed his support by writing a hypothetical 6-page script that is packed to the rafters with Romanoff goodness.
Paul Lazarro has one of the weirdest gigs I've ever heard of: he milks black widow spiders for their silk. Yeap! The venomous, red dotted, eight-legged, creature killing black widow is knocked out and then handled for its super strong silk. All in the name of dangerous research.
Mechanical keyboards are the miniguns of gaming gear: Heavy, ostentatiously clacky, and downright murderous. They're commensurately uncommon and expensive. Razer's Black Widow is the latest, a surprisingly spare piece of kit from Razer, considering its typical aggro-gamer mode of existence. (What's a mechanical…
Razer spent the last 3 years engineering a mechanical keyboard that was optimized for gaming—one that had crisp, clicky, and fully-programmable keys that weren't fatiguing to trigger. That keyboard is the Razer BlackWidow.
We figure this RC Black Widow Spider is good for maybe one, possibly two, good scares before a skittish family member offs it with a well-placed slipper to the head. But until then, you'll have seconds or minutes of fun making this hairy little abomination scurry around the family room on its eight little legs.…
