Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ( ʚ̴̶̷ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷ )ﾉ”
Look! Is that a bird? A plane? (ﾟ ヘﾟ)？
No, it’s Pro Hero No. 2, Hawks!
OK, I lied. Technically it IS a bird…
But hey, he’s less bird-y than his intern Tsukuyomi. And with looks like that, I’d say he’s more of an angel! ♡(ŐωŐ人)
Hawks is the second Pro Hero of the My Hero Academia figures by Kotobukiya, preceded by the previous No.1 All Might! Befittingly, he even comes before Endeavor. (๑˃́ꇴ˂̀)
I’m not sure whether that was a planned move on Kotobukiya’s part, but it’s just too perfect, I have to admit. To date, I’ve only seen prize figures of Endeavor (which we haaaave ♪(´ε｀ ) ). The scale may be well on its way, but until it gets here, you could get that prize to start your Pro Hero collection. (・。-;
Or, even better, start with Pop Up Parades!
Yes, writer-san is a total simp for GSC (if that wasn’t obvious already (◔ᴥ◔) ). The MHA Pop Up Parades are high-quality, affordable figures that every collector, even the veteran ones, should have IMHO. Himiko and Tsuyu are currently on pre-order, scheduled to release in February and March 2022, respectively.
Eyes back on the sky: while we wait for Endeavor’s ratings to go up, let’s fawn over Hawks! (ෆ‿ෆ)
The lightning-quick hero is rarely seen with his feet touching the ground. His dream of creating a world where heroes have less work and more free time will require, ironically, a lot of work to achieve. Crime doesn’t just vanish, unfortunately…and he knows it better than anyone else.
In this brief moment in the battle, he perches on the rocks, calculating his next move. His feather blade is drawn, ready to unleash a powerful slash.
His wings stretch out, ready to either lift him to the skies, or to move the innocent out of harm’s way. Take a moment to appreciate how each feather was carefully sculpted and shaded to perfection, giving them a sharp edge and a soft texture!
That smirk tells us that he’s got it all figured out.
The goggles can be removed for a better view of that homewrecker of a face. (o˚̑̑̑̑̑ 3˚̑̑̑̑̑ o )
His windswept hair flutters among the cloud of dust and debris of the metropolitan battlefield. This bon vivant hero will save the world, then take you to a hotpot date to a restaurant nearby. It's no easy job being a hero, even a laid-back one!
Hawks is scheduled to land in our store in January 2022. That is just beyond the Christmas lights, and we all know how fast they dim. So pre-order today to make sure you won't miss out!
We hope you enjoyed this one!
Until next time! ヾ(＾∇＾)
