And I don’t really mean a toy. Well, it is a toy — a 12-inch action figure, to be specific — but since it’s made by the terrifyingly talented sculptors at Hot Toys in Hong Kong, it’s pretty much like buying a tiny, actual Scarlet Johansson as Black widow from Iron Man 2. If the slideshow above doesn’t convince you, there’s many many many more pictures over at ToysREvil to check out (most of them hi-res). I swear, if the Real Doll company had the eyes/lips/face-making technology of Hot Toys, civilization would come to a fucking end. Men would be too busy fucking their Scarlet Johannson fuck dolls to actually procreate and continue the species.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
