First Look at Nendoroid Hawks from My Hero Academia
Here’s our first look at the upcoming Nendoroid Hawks from My Hero Academia from Good Smile Company.
The feathered hero comes with a number of accessories including a text display to show the No. 3 hero’s impressive speed. The figure also comes with feather blades, which are his signature weapons in the anime and the manga series created by Kohei Horikoshi.
There are also three available face plates to use for the Nendoroid Hawks including Determined face, Combat faceand Smiling face
Hawks’ real name is Keigo Takami and is a man of average height with a slim and narrow build. He himself has pointed out that his back muscles are not broad enough (though this is more of a metaphor portraying his lack of ability to lead and provide stability). He has feathery, ash blond hair that is swept messily backward, with some of the front tufts sticking up in arcs above his head. His eyebrows are notably thick, having a similar appearance to his hair, and he has faint stubble on his chin.
His eyes are golden-brown and rather triangular, with two small black triangles just below his tear ducts and in the top corners of his eyes, making them resemble those of a bird. The marks around his eyes are natural, as it is shown that he already had them as a child. His Quirk grants him a set of large, bright red feathered wings. Although the sizing of his wings is somewhat inconsistent, they are mostly shown to reach over his head when folded.
His hero costume resembles an aviator’s uniform; he wears a black shirt with a wavy golden pattern, over which he has a tan jacket with a high collar, the insides and cuffs of the sleeves lined with white fur, and black gloves. He has a red square-shaped lobe piercing in each ear, although these are rarely visible as he usually wears a pair of yellow headphones over them. His headphones most likely have protection purposes, since the velocities in which he moves are capable of damaging eardrums beyond repair. A rounded, yellow-tinted (blue in the manga) visor protects his eyes, presumably from UV radiation above the clouds and dirt particles at high speeds. His jacket is specially modified, with two large slits over his shoulder blades to accommodate his wings.
This Hawks figure is currently on pre-order on the Good Smile Company website and is priced at ¥8,500 and will be available in stores September 2023.
