Nerf -> Avengers -> Hawkeye this time!

So with the impending release of the Avengers, Nerf's got another tie-in product on the way.  We've got Cap's Shield, Thor's Hammer, and Iron had a power gauntlet/helmet whatever, why not Hawkeye? 

Here's one shot of what it'll look like, more info can be found at http://io9.com/5881067/a-fresh-look-at-hawkeyes-bow-from-the-avengers-in-nerf-form

Yeahhhhh, a Big  Bad Bow!  Avengers logo'd out, and it looks like a little extra black trim.  Exploding arrows not included!
