DC Comics Multiverse - Hawkman from King Shark Series Review !!!

This figure of Hawkman is based on the live action television version from the show " Legends of Tomorrow .  I purchased this figure of Hawkman at a local Walmart for around the $ 19. 99 price range . I really purchased this figure for the King Shark piece because I already own a DC Universe Classics Hawkman , so there was more excitement about me completing King Shark than owning another Hawkman figure . However as long as the figure is cool that makes things good again .

When viewing the back of the packaging, you can see that Hawkman comes with the left leg of King Shark . Now for a look at the figure out of the packaging .

I love the brown and gold mixture of colors . The wings are the exact same wings that belong to the DC Universe Classics Hawkman . In the comparison pics below, you'll see that the only difference between the wings are the colors .

I did not know there were so many differences between the real life portrayal of Hawkman compared to his fictional appearance , until I compared the above two figures. The actor that plays Hawkman seems to be a small guy compared to the fictional comic book look . Even though the wings are the same, DC Classics Hawkman 's wings look bigger only because the Classics version is taller . More differences, Classic Hawk's eyes are concealed compared to seeing the eyes of the newer Hawkman .The older Hawk also has more weapons . Classics Hawkman comes with a sword , shield and mace . Whereas it's just a mace for the newer figure . Overall I think that the Classics figure is better, but the new live television version is not a bad figure neither .  It's obvious the television shows and movies are going for realism with a realistic look, because classic comic book Hawkman just would not look realistic in the real world . It would look more like a Halloween costume rather than an outfit intended for physical combat .
                                                      FINAL   ANALYSIS 
(1)  ARTICULATION  LIMITS - The only limits seem to be no up and down head movement . Everything else seems normal.

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - The figure stands well. The wings do not make him top heavy .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The combination and mixtures of the gold and brown colors . The wings have the same mobility as the Classics figure .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - There's nothing that I dislike about this figure .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? - No improvements needed .

(6) GRADING  SCALE - Although I'm not overly crazy about this figure , I give it a Perfect 10 because I could find no flaws, not because of rather I like the figure a lot or not. The Grading Scale system here is based on the number of flaws a figure may have that will lower the score, and not on how much the figure is liked .

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS -  Since The Justice League movie just recently came out , this particular Hawkman figure might look in place standing next to the recently released Justice League Movie figures .
