Daredevil, the Man Without Fear is by far my favorite Marvel Comic Book Character. Essentially a more broken blind version of Batman. At least that’s what I always got. From supervillains to low level mobsters Daredevil has battled all of them. The Netflix show is simply amazing. My house is adorned in Daredevil statues and props, and now my son has a Diamond Select Toys action figure of Daredevil as well.
Figure features a detailed facial sculpt by Sam Greenwell
Figure has 14 points of articulation
Stands 7" tall on base and backdrop is 8"
Daredevil, is a flawed Catholic, at least he became one in the 80’s when Frank Miller took over the writing duties. He changed the character from a second rate hero into the one we love to this day. With that in mind it’s not surprising that he comes with a Cross to double as his base. There are many comics and drawing throughout the years depicting him clutching a cross at night so it was a great choice to package him with one. Like the other figures he’s blister packed with a clear case. Daredevil is on the left side with the big “DD” logo on the bottom. The backing has a nice splash art and there is the tab at the top if you want to hang him up in the package.
Daredevil, is designed spot on to resemble the comic book likeness. He’s skinnier that some of the character, because he’s a pretty small guy in the comics, and the show as well. Designed to be superhero muscular you can see all the muscles underneath the costume. The costume is the traditional bright red with darker red for the boots and gloves. He has his dark red belt with the white buckle and dark red weapon pack on his left hip. The eyes a glazed out in a light shade of red with the two small horns sticking out the front of the costume. The only thing visible is his face, which has a stoic look about it. Top all that off with the “DD” in black on the chest and you have a perfect match.
This is probably my favorite in terms of playability. As he’s not bulky or covered in armor he’s the easiest so far to bend and maneuver. He can be bent almost like a classic GI Joe, which is awesome. He’s fully posable and able to do battle with any of the villains, or other toys you throw his way. Not only does he articulate the smoothest but he comes packing his tricked out nunchuck style stick, so he has a weapon as well which comes in quiet handy battling the bad guys.
I really do dig the cross he comes with as its not only a great bae for the character but it makes for a fighting backdrop as well. My son has thrown the Punisher into it many times. It’s very well sculpted as well with etchings and marks of grass and dirt around the bottom as well as just general outside style wear and tear along the entire thing.
Study, well designed, and just a really neat toy Daredevil can fight anything you throw at him. He’s very durable and can take the punishment a kid can throw out. So not only is he an amazing toy to play with he’s a great collectors piece as well, both in and out of the box. It a figure I highly recommend for both kids and collectors. Pick one up today.
P.S. according to my son, he still can’t beat Thanos
Overall 4.5 out of 5 Stars
