Hawkeye

Assembling The Avengers - Day 3: Hawkeye

 

In anticipation of the upcoming Avengers movie I started building some pieces to be displayed at my local comic shop on FCBD this Saturday. Even though I started these around the first of March, I've just managed to get them finished in time and snapped some photos with the help of my Wife.

 

I wrote an article on FBTB back in October about LEGO costuming and have been experimenting with it a great deal since then. I have many projects in the works and some will probably never be widely seen, but being a Marvel Zombie I could not miss this opportunity to create a tribute to some of my favourite Avengers.

 

Some info on Hawkeye's weapons from Marvel.com

 

Hawkeye he used bow and "trick" arrows such as: flares, explosives, putty, sonic blasts, buzz saws, electrical discharge, suction cups, tear gas, smoke bombs, bolas, nets, rockets, and boomerangs.

 

Thank you to my lovely Wife for taking these photos for me!

 

Just one more day to go...

  • Jaron 3y

    Impressive. Great work. I really like the handle area.

    These are sweet! How did you make the bow strong enough to pull back on? What is the string made of?
  • Eero Okkonen 3y

    Sweet use of those insectoid legs.

    amethyst- John -117 View all sizes and you'll see it close enough to see my arm freckles. The handle is the real stabilizer and the ends of the flexible shafts are sandwiched between bricks and strengthened with technic pieces. There's no trick, it's just 4 studs x whatever length plates I could find sandwiched between 2 studs x whatever length plates on the bottom and CMF stands on top. The string is just LEGO string, lots of it.

    100% LEGO folks, no tricks, no glue, just patience.
