Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line continues to expand with not only figures, but now they are offering motorcycles that are compatible with these 6″ figures. This new line includes Black Widow and Ghost Rider, and each figure includes character specific accessories. Marvel Legends is a line that has grown and expanded in its 15 year history and has been offered by both Toybiz (first as Spider-Man Classics and then Marvel Legends) and continued by Hasbro. Over the years, many characters have been given a chance to thrive in this line, including some we never thought we’d see. Hasbro’s Marvel brand team is doing a remarkable job with this line, and these guys are so passionate about the line and brand themselves, they are now adding rides to the mix. This isn’t a new concept to Marvel Legends, as Toybiz once offered an entire wave of figures called “Legendary Riders,” which was Series 11. This was a figure and vehicle packed in that replaced a build-a-figure. That was surely a great wave, and even included the Ghost Rider villain Vengence with a bike. While this line has seen many offerings, these are the best bikes that this line has even seen, and Hasbro’s Marvel team spared no expense to offer fans something great.

Availability: March 2018
While Ghost Rider gets his own specialized bike with detachable flames (reviewed HERE), Black Widow is also offered with her own motorcycle, and this figure truly is a great update and one of the best offerings that Hasbro is giving fans. Natasha is known for using motorbikes as a means of transportation, and this off box set includes a modern Black Widow figure with a modern bike that fans won’t want to miss.
Black Widow’s motorcycle is a sports bike that is generic to what you would see out on the roads, and this is painted in a black, dark grey and red deco. The bike includes her emblazoned logo on the upper left side, dials between the handle bars and an overall great design. This particular design and sculpting can easily be repurposed to use for other characters such as Captain America, Blade, Hawkeye, and others down the line should these continue, which is something we truly hope to see. Black Widow fits perfectly on the bike, and can be displayed in multiple different ways either seated or standing next to the bike. The details on this bike are nicely done, and you can see the sculpting highlights in the engine portions and handle bars that this bike was made for speed.
The bike also has some functions to it, which includes the rotating wheels that have a rubbery material to them, and a functional kickstand. The front tire can turn slightly, and with the kickstand down, you will need to play with it to get the bike to stand upright. The kickstand probably needed to be designed differently for it to work better, such as long and wider, so that the bike can lean a little bit on it. It does work, but it does take a moment and you will need to turn the front tire to get it to stand.
Black Widow comes in a modern sculpt that is different than what has come before. The figure includes two nicely sculpted head sculpts, with long and short hair. Her outfit is black, and the belt is painted around her hips as opposed to a loose plastic piece as previously offered with other Black Widow figures. Her shirt includes a zipper, and on her wrists she has modern silver bracers, which look good. Despite having a nice modern sculpt and build, she does not have pistols that she needs to go with her two trigger fingers, which is most unfortunate.
Overall, Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line continues to exceed expectations, and this Black Widow figure with the new motorcycle is truly a modern day masterpiece. There is no way you would want to miss out on this set, as it offers everything that fans would want from a set like this. Fans will not be disappointed.
