Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
I suppose having Black Widow's eyes smaller is a way to denote "the fairer sex" and make a female character look a little kinder and gentler. Call it a little bit sexist if you like, but it's sexism perpetrated by a toy company with good intentions I suppose. Like a whole lot of people I guess they think that fairer, more slender features make a female toy more believable, even if those features are eyeballs.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
