I believe there has been one movie Hawkeye made as part of a boxed set. This isn't that figure.
I got this figure on eBay, cheap. I doubt it was released in the United States. It has only 9 points of articulation: head, shoulders, elbows, legs, and knees. But it did come with a nice shoulder strap, bow and a quiver. The actor likeness is right-on too.
In anycase, even though it's not a true Marvel Legends figure, it works perfectly with them.
I would gladly get more figures of this type if they made more obscure unmade in Legends characters.
And Below is a shot of the the 7" scale DC Collectible Arrow figure with the 6" scale Hawkeye. There's a slight bit of forced perspective in play to make this shot work.
Good Stuff.Jenn took some of these shots with me.
Great 6" Figure from Funko. It also came with a Billy Campbell head, not pictured.
Really liked this movie and character when I was younger. Also a huge fan of Dave Stevens', his creator, art.
This figure was announced almost a year ago, it's the only figure in it's wave. Great sculpt, great detail and great addition to the shelf.
Below, Rocketeer shown with a couple of Justice Society members. He fits in nicely with that crew doesn't he?
And who wouldn't want to see a Rocketeer/Indianna Jones Team-up movie? I know I would.
I think these are probably the two most famous rocket packed heroes in comics?
Packaging is pretty much the same as Funko's Game of Thornes and Firefly figures
I had bought a custom cast head and rocket pack off of eBay and was in the middle of converting a Marvel Legend's AIM Soldier into a custom Rocketeer last year. In the middle of the project Funko announced they would be making an official 6" Rocketeer figure, so I stopped my custom. Since I've already got a couple other AIM soldiers, I'll need to find another project for this AIM body now.
Anyway, really fun figure. Hopefully this and the Firefly figures do well enough for Funko that they tackle some more figures in the 6" scale.
I was reading a kids book to Quinn and found these two pages disturbing.
May Parker is Spider-Man's (sic) younger cousin and has the same abilities as the famous Spider-Man (sic).
They take some liberties in these preschool versions of Marvel's superheroes. May Parker is actually an the daughter of an alternate Earth Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. Ok, maybe alternate Earths are a heavy concept for the toddler/preschool set, so even if I don't like the revision, I could probably let it slide.
Ususally, Bruce Banner is a shy young man who likes to study and do experiments. But when he gets excited by things like sunny days, weekends, and ice cream trucks, Bruce turns into the green playing machine known as the Hulk!
No. Bruce Banner doesn't change into the Hulk because he's excited about Ice Cream Trucks. Bruce Banner changes into the Hulk when you make him angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry... etc. etc. That's the whole point of the Hulk. Hulk doesn't play. HULK SMASH!
Picked up this nifty little action figure for cheap a few weeks ago. Many years ago, he was quite the little internet meme. I've had him on an Amazon Wishlist waiting for a cheap one forever.
When he was finally available recently for less than $10, I picked one up. Typically this meme character is depicted as being made from Amazon.co.jp boxes. The picture for the listing I bought (see right) also showed the Amazon logos but when he arrived, he was the logoless version shown above. Bummer.
It didn't seem worth the trouble of returning him. Perhaps I'll eventually make up some little Amazon Logo decals and add them to the figure myself.
Cute figure though.

I?m not a fan of the new Flickr redesign. It?s not even that I don?t like the visual look of it.My primary beef is: without warning they completely changed the service for paying customers. I?ve payed for a Pro account for years under the assumption that paying for a service would provide a little more reliability. Flickr has shown that not to be the case, so I?m planning to use it far less frequently and probably far differently than the personal photo site of record I have been using it as. (I?m also not pleased with their likely upcoming attention/advertising model)
I was able to put all my photos into one Set and download the full size images using a free service called flickandshare.com, so I have everything safely out of the service now. Likely I will eventually set up my own simple photo gallery (and give these photos a new home) on my website at chris-karath.com. Hosting your own services and codes seem to be the most reliable method for content that you want around for years to come.
Photos that are here now, will probably continue to be here, Yahoo willing, into the future.
I?m coming to believe that commercial services are fine for emphemeral content, but archival content seems better suited for self hosted methods.
Since Flickr has shown itself to be of unpredictable stability, and it appears to be transforming into more a social network than a photo service, I?ll probably plan on treating it as such. If you subscribe to my account for the action figures, I?ll probably from time to time still post a picture or two of those here with links back to my own site where I?ll likely start posting more photos.
If you follow for my personal photos, following me on Twitter or my personal blog atchris-karath.com will probably be your best bet. --- Best wishes, Chris.

Both these guys have contributed a lot to comics. I'm not implying anything with the choice of pose. I figure in classic comic parlance though, these two comic heroes would be obligated to fight before teaming up to defeat some great evil.

Hi Cris and other people who view this sight, I just started a blog site jolloway.co.uk and I wonderd if anyone can give me any tips on blogging. I am curently using a site called word press to host me blog. I start around about a month ago and I\'m really struggling with it and if you do reply I\'m only 11 and found this sight by a photo in google Images. -Josh P.S. I love the background XP

Fortunately, I resisted the DC/Master Bundles as they were pretty much only bundled with basic figures I already had. Had they been bundled with more unique DC figures, I might have alot more Masters figures at this point ;)

I almost bit on Masters of the Universe when they were being bundled with DC Universe figures in the two-packs. I\'ve also liked the blending of sci-fi and fantasy but a lad only has so much room :-)

Hi Chris: Like you, I bought and just received an ONDA V701. Mine took 32 days (!) to arrive from China (bought from gadgetdealer.com... avoid like plague), and the box was beat to hell, but it seems to work fine ....with one exception. That said, I like the tablet thus far, but a couple of things aren\'t flying right. One, it was advertised as having Adobe Flash ver. 11.1, but instead, mine came with 10.2. Yours? Not sure this matters, as Flash is going the way of the dodo-bird as far as Android goes. My only real complaint thus far, and that despite trying everything I could find online, I cannot get NetFlix to work. This was/is one of the main reasons I bought it, as they advertised that it \"works with NetFlix\". I don\'t know whether it\'s the tablet, or the app that is the problem, but nonetheless, no love from NetFlix at this point. I don\'t know if you are subscribed to Netflix, but if you are, I sure would like to know if it works for you on your V701, and if so, how did you get it going, and what settings are you\'re using to make it work? Appreciate hearing from you. Best, T. Bass Applegate, Oregon

i kind of agree with you, and i\'m sure bale had the best intentions but the whole media circus at times is disturbing. but if to had to pick on whether bale should have visited or not i\'d rather he visit for the sole reason that if he made any of the survivors feel good,even if it was only for the briefest moments, then it was worth it. the victims medical and emotonals needs should be put first and if bale\'s visit helped any of them emotionally then i\'m glad
