Iron Studios 1/10 Art Scale Taskmaster Statue, Black Widow



As the long-awaited Black Widow solo Marvel Cinematic Universe movie makes its debut in cinemas, the Iron Studios team has announced a new set of tie-in 1/10 Art Scale polystone statues - starting with Taskmaster.


Taskmaster is posed in a battle stance atop a rubble diorama base. He is using his sword and shield and with his good up over the skeletal mask. Taskmaster is part of a wider set of 1/10 statues that will also feature Black Widow, Yelena Belova, and Red Guardian. Taskmaster is a 2nd Quarter 2022 release (April-June).



The Black Widow movie, which will premiere on July 9 in theaters and on Disney+ streaming, has as its main antagonist a figure who wears a hood and a metallic mask similar to a skull. The enigmatic character stands on a base of a battleground, wielding a short sword in his right hand along with his characteristic shield in his left forearm. Wearing a combat uniform in the same colors as his traditional comic book apparel, his identity and goals are a great mystery. His appearance is faithfully portrayed in this new "Taskmaster BDS Art Scale 1/10 - Black Widow - Iron Studios" statue.

Created in the Marvel comics by the brilliant David Michelinie and the iconic George Pérez in 1980, Taskmaster is a mercenary with an excellent photographic memory that allows him to imitate any fighting style due to his short- and long-term memory. He can replicate Captain America's abilities with his shield, Hawkeye's archery, among other skills of several heroes, managing to anticipate the moves during combat to defeat his opponents. As a mercenary, he often works as a combat instructor, training other villains' henchmen by teaching them the techniques he learned from watching various superheroes.


In the Black Widow movie, after the events that occurred in Captain America: Civil War (2016), the avenger Natasha Romanoff finds herself on a forced flight and must face a dangerous conspiracy closely tied to her past. She will meet allies like The Red Guardian and Yelena Belova, other figures that will compose this series of statues from Iron Studios, and face the dangerous Taskmaster.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
