Black Widow

Apparently, this toy doesn't exist
Feminists are complaining about the lack of Black Widow action figures. Because facts & good math are things that SJW hate, they are ignoring the fact that there are hardly any Hawkeye figures. They even started a tumblr to whine about how sexist it is that they don't make Black Widow action figures from Avengers: Age of Ultron. (I'm surprised they even want a black widow action figure considering how much feminists & SJW hated her portrayal in the movie)

The lack of female action figures is a result of a business decision to maximize profits. Large for-profit corporations do not make assumptions about what their customers want. They have hard sales figures to base decisions on. They only care about the bottom line & decades of actual sales reports have proven that boys don't want female action figures. They prefer male action figures. Female action figures sell poorly.

"Trish Stewart, director of marketing for Bandai America, says it would be a happy thing, under ordinary circumstances, for a strong female character in an action figure line to do one - tenth as well as a strong male character."

They have conducted focus groups & play studies & found that a female action figure is too close to a doll & boys do not want to play with dolls. The main reason Disney bought Marvel is because boys weren't buying princess stuff.

Whether you agree or not, is irrelevant, that is the reality of boys mentality when it comes to the action figures they want. To a corporation, all that matters is the bottom line.

Do you know who buys female action figures? Men do. Adult toy collectors who want to complete their collection. There aren't that many of those. (To this day I am annoyed that they never made a Talyn from Skeleton Warriors, luckily they at least made a Shriek.)

The reality is that sometimes the toy you want is not available in the store, so you have to buy it online. Welcome to my world. This has been happening for decades but because it's some girl whining on twitter, mangina sites like polygon & the daily dot write articles about how it's all muhsojuhnee.

Despite all this, the truth is that there are plenty of Black Widow action figures for sale, but spreading lies about geek stuff is what feminists & SJW do best.
