Marvel Legends – Hawkeye (Age of Ultron Amazon Exclusive 4-pack) vs Hawkeye (Walmart Exclusive)

The Figures

Above are the two MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) Hawkeye in his Avenger uniform. On the left is the unmasked version from an Amazon 4-pack Exclusive based on Avengers: Age of Ultron. The 4-pack also comes with Thor, Bruce Banner and Black Widow.

On the right is the Walmart Exclusive Hawkeye from the first Avengers movie. That Walmart Exclusive wave comes with other individual figures Captain America, Hulk, Loki, Thor and Iron Man.

As you can see, the figures have the same body mold, albeit a different head sculpt and paintwork.

I like the detailed texture of the vest at both the front and back of the figure.

Differences

The purple shade for both figures are different. The purple matches the vest of each respective figure. The 4-pack Hawkeye has black-painted fingers.

The arm guards are also differently coloured; one is black, the other is metallic grey. Both looks fine.

This is the most important difference. Shades off and shade on! I think Hawkeye only wore the purple shades in the first Avengers movie, and didn’t wear it anymore in other movies.

The Walmart Hawkeye’s face has a greater likeness to Jeremy Renner than the 4-pack Hawkeye.

The hairdo is also slightly different. I prefer the 4-pack Hawkeye’s hair.

I don’t know why the Walmart Hawkeye has different boots on. ????

Another obvious difference is the SHIELD logo too. It quite well printed on the Walmart Hawkeye figure.

TL;DR

Hawkeye (Age of Ultron Amazon Exclusive 4-pack):

+ No shades

+ Different shade of purple paintwork on costume

+ Black arm guard

+ No SHIELD logo

+ Matching boots

+ Has arrows in quiver

+ Nicer hair

Hawkeye (Walmart Exclusive):

+ Shades on

+ Different shade of purple paintwork on costume

+ Silver arm guard

+ Has SHIELD logo

+ Mismatched boots

– No arrows in quiver

– Hair sculpt is less nice

My Verdict

The costumes are based on different Avengers team, so I’m definitely keeping both. Which one you get simply depends on which costume you prefer, or which MCU Avengers team you are setting up.

I feel that both of them may not be too pricy now (in the secondary market), but difficult to come across.

I like them both!
