More Marvel Legends! This is from the Build a Hobgoblin Spiderman wave, The Man Without Fear himself, Daredevil! Soon to be in a Netflix original series, I had to have him…so in honor of me fanboying out from that show, let’s look at his latest figure!
This guy is looking great. A good buck for the body, the billy club’s leg holster is perfect, and the head sculpt is just fine. Hell even the joints are colored a nice deep red so they don’t stand out (looking at YOU Spiderman). I have zero complaints on this guy save the hands, but I’ll get more on that in a bit.
The club can be put pegged together to form a larger baton, but it is a floppy mess.
Holding in separate hands is definitely the way to go. Plus just adds a bit more dynamics to the poses. Here though is where the hand issue comes in to play.
His left hand is fine, a holding something round hand, but his right (bases on his perspective) is a pistol grip hand, so when the billy club half is in that hand it is just…loose…Why didn’t they just make two holding hands? It’s not like I plan to give him a pistol any time soon. It’s these little things that just make me scratch my head in wonder.
Articulation is on the high score. Would love shoulders like Spiderman and Ironfist, but they are more…slender frames…so we have more of a standard affair. Nothing bad, but I can always want more.
In the end I have no problems recommending this guy for comic fans. We have an iconic character looking great, PLUS the build part for the Hobgoblin (spoilers: He is awesome). Aside from the hands, a near flawless figure. I give Daredevil a solid A.
(note I spelled “firest” on purpose…trying to be witty like they were in the 90’s)
