SUPPORT FLICKERING MYTH: Order via Sideshow
The superheroine is staring intently, moving her sticks and positioning herself for combat, ready to face any opponent. She stands on a base littered with debris from a battle scene, her left leg atop a destroyed old file cabinet and wearing her tactical black uniform, with the red buckle of her belt in the shape of the arachnid symbol, which gave rise to her codename. That’s how Iron Studios proudly presents its statue of “Natasha Romanoff BDS Art Scale 1:10 – Black Widow – Iron Studios” with the heroine inspired by her long-awaited movie.
In Black Widow, the first film of the so-called Phase 4 of the MCU, after the conflict in Captain America: Civil War, the avenging super-spy faces a dangerous conspiracy that has ties to her past, which will reveal details of her enigmatic story. The former Soviet-Russian secret agent once again joins her former allies. Despite having them as a family for a long time, when Natasha became an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and founding member of the Avengers group, she left them behind.
Faithfully portraying the features of the actress Scarlett Johansson and the impressive details of her costume and accessories, this statue is part of a diorama scenario composed by the figures of her allies, Yelena and Red Guardian, facing the lethal mercenary Taskmaster. These pieces from Iron Studios have been previously presented, sold separately. A must-have set for collectors and fans of the beloved Marvel heroine.
With a body expression full of movement, the figure of the blond Russian agent climbs a diorama base full of debris and elements of a combat scenario. Dressed in a white tactical uniform, with a black vest and gloves, she poses with her long stick in her left hand, as if spinning it, ready to confront an opponent who tries to surprise her in vain. Thus Iron Studios presents the statue “Yelena BDS Art Scale 1:10 – Black Widow – Iron Studios”, Natasha Romanoff’s ally in the Black Widow movie.
In the Marvel comics, Yelena Belova and Natasha Romanoff participated in the same training program for intelligence agents in the so-called Red Room, with Yelena receiving the same training to become as effective a spy as Romanoff. The blonde became the second agent to adopt the code name Black Widow. She is a master in martial arts, sniper, computer expert, and fluent in several languages. In addition to remarkable acrobatic skills, thanks to her high physical and athletic conditioning.
The statue faithfully portrays the characteristics of actress Florence Pugh, who plays the spy in the MCU movie Black Widow. This piece will be part of a series that forms a diorama, with Yelena alongside her allies The Red Guardian and Black Widow against the mercenary Taskmaster, also by Iron Studios.
In a pose like he’s screaming furiously, the long-bearded Russian-Soviet super-soldier is ready to fight, proudly wearing his patriotic red uniform, the symbol of his nation. The giant advances through folders and file drawers, with damaged documents near his feet, on the base floor, ready to face with clenched fists any enemy in front of him, and defend his protege allied agents against the threat of the mysterious villain, Taskmaster, just like in the movie Black Widow. Thus, Iron Studios brings its statue of the great “Red Guardian BDS Art Scale 1:10 – Black Widow – Iron Studios”.
In the comics, although more than one character has acted with the codename Red Guardian, in the movie, we are introduced to the best known and most popular among them, the irascible Alexi Shostakov, played by the charismatic actor David Harbour. He is the Russian-Soviet version of Captain America, a highly trained hero of the communist nation with enhanced strength and brain. Depicted as a father figure to senior Red Room agents Natasha Romanoff and Yelena at the MCU, he has an apparent love affair with agent Melina Vostokoff, known as the villain Iron Maiden in the comics. Melina assumes a maternal role, creating a kind of family dynamic between the hero and his allied agents.
Alongside the figures of Natasha and Yelena, the red Soviet champion composes a diorama by Iron Studios against the lethal Taskmaster, in the series derived from the solo film of the founding heroine of the Avengers. In the movie, after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), the Black Widow, on a forced flight, will face a dangerous conspiracy linked to her past.
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland (Lore) and sees Scarlett Johansson reprising her role as Natasha Romanoff alongside William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross, Florence Pugh (Fighting With My Family) as Yelena Belova, O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Mason, David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) as Melina Vostokoff and Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast) as Dreykov.
