This second Disney exclusive Avengers set has three more of our heroes against another classic Avengers villian, The Grim Reaper.
Iron Man again has the hot-rod red and gold paint job, love it. Clear bright details on the helmet and underneath you have Tony’s face with his under-armor around his head (helps so that we don’t need an extra hairpiece included). The helmet, shoulder/torso cover, belt, boots and gantlets appear to be new sculpted pieces. Great designs all over and especially like the added gold highlights with precision application. Seriously no smudges or bleeding at all that I can see. Do be careful however if you remove the shoulder/torso cover; since there are thick paint apps and the cover itself fits snug that it may pull off some of the paint on the main torso (mine did on the back). Underneath on the torso there is some detailing on his chest.
For an accessory he comes with a blue blast base. It works well on Iron Man but it will really look good for some of our aquatic heroes (like Namor) too. This set does come with a clear base stand to use for any of the characters.

Instead of a full torso cover like he had on his previous comic version minimate this just has the collar with quiver attached; I really like this and doesn’t make him look so chunky. The blue/purple colors are great, very bright and the details stand out well too. His skirt is also redone as it has more wavy details and is stands out further from his legs which make it a lot easier to pose him. Rounding out his costume are some nice purple arm bracelets/bands and his purple buccaneer boots.
Hawkeye comes loaded with archery accessories. He has a brown notched bow and three pointed arrows and two rounded arrows. All the arrows do fix in his quiver too.
In conclusion, save for the angry look, he’s the best comic version Hawkeye released so far.

Maniacal laugh! MANIACAL LAUGH!!! Eric Williams is the brother of Simon Williams (Wonder Man), but Eric was always the bad boy. Jealousy and bitterness along with some encouragement my Baron Zemo helped turn Eric against Wonder Man (and the Avengers). Later with help from the Tinkerer and Ultron, Eric became the Grim Reaper.
He has a new sculpted helmet and a great maniacal look on his face. No extra hairpiece is included but does have a nice purple cape. As with all the figures in these box sets the colors and details look great. Often times black detail lines don’t show up well on darker colored pieces but not the case at all on Grim Reaper.
Now the main point of interest for this figure is his scythe. The piece itself fits very snug on his arm so be careful if you try to move or remove it as it does mark the underneath arm. It may not look like it in the pictures but the blade is flat. Overall it’s a great hand piece and looks really menacing on him. No other accessories are included for him.
He may not be an A-List villain but he makes for a good looking minimate. MANIACAL LAUGH!!!
