Marvel Legends – Vintage Wave Hawkeye vs Odin BAF Wave Hawkeye

The Figures

Here we have Clint Barton aka Hawkeye in two different costumes. Vintage Wave Hawkeye is in his classic costume while Odin BAF Wave Hawkeye is in the costume from the ‘Heroic Age’ comic storyline.

They have the same Bucky Cap body mold, and same bow and quiver.

You can see its very much similar except for the paintwork and the metallic arms of the Odin Hawkeye. In the comics, the metallic arm is just part of his costume; it’s not a bionic arm like the Winter Soldier’s.

Differences

The most obvious is the purple paintwork of course. The Vintage Hawkeye has the vintage purple costume whereas Odin Hawkeye has a very dark purple/blue paintwork. They have the same ‘vest’ on, albeit some difference in colour.

There are also slight differences in colour for the bow and quiver, no big issues about that.

The hands are different; Odin Hawkeye has 2 trigger hands with the index finger separate from the other fingers, which allows it to hold a gun, or pull the string on the bow. The Vintage Hawkeye’s index finger is together with the other fingers as seen above, so you can’t pose it pulling the string of the box (or maybe its harder to do so).

TL;DR

Vintage Wave Hawkeye:

+ Classic costume

Odin BAF Wave Hawkeye:

+ Costume from ‘Heroic Age’ comic storyline

+ Metallic arms

+ Trigger fingers

They are basically the same figure except for different paintwork and the metallic arms.

My Verdict

Both may be the same figure, but they are from two different storylines; one is the classic origin costume and the other is from the ‘Heroic Age’ comic storyline.

I’m keeping both!

I’ll do a comparison between the Vintage Wave Hawkeye and the Toybiz Hawkeye soon.
