Sympathy for the Daredevil

First, I want to thank everyone here for the birthday wishes. It was a great day, I had so much fun.

But my day is over, so enough about me. How about seeing some swag!

First up on the birthday haul is Daredevil in his original costume!

Like with Captain America, I am very picky when it comes to Daredevil action figures. So much so that I did not have a Daredevil action figure before this one. You see, the thing is, I have nothing against his red costume; it's just that I always wanted his first costume FIRST. I'm weird like that.

I recall that Marvel Legends released a yellow version years ago as a "chase" or "variant" figure, and I really wanted it, but since I never saw it I never bothered with the red Daredevil released at the time. Nor did I ever bother with the movie version. The less said about that one the better.

I'm glad I waited, as this version (from Hasbro's Marvel Legends: Nemesis Walmart exclusive line) is far superior! It was well worth the wait to get Daredevil into my action figure roster.

His nunchucks fit nicely in his leg holster too, which is very cool.

Daredevil's head sculpt is excellent, his horns are nice and crisp and his face looks tough and heroic. The head sculpt even has wrinkles on the top and back, like a real cowl would. Nice attention to detail.

The costume isn't exactly like his first appearance, which had one large "D" instead of two small ones, but since this is just a repaint of the red version released in the same line, I can forgive that.

I just love gaudy superhero costumes, and Daredevil's original is one of the most gaudy. I'd say it looks like it was designed by a blind guy, but that'd be insensitive. Anyways, I love it and personally feel like I now own one of the best Daredevil action figures ever made.

"I don't get it."


  1. Cool figure man, I have never picked up this version of DD myself, but I could see that this one might be worth a look if I find it in the wild.

    So far your swag is off to a great start, can't wait to see the rest!

  2. Am a fan of this version of DD's costume always have been for some reason.

    Great action figure you got there Bubba congrats.

  3. I love silly costumes, but for some reason, that color scheme for a night avenger like DD seemed too silly for me to grasp. That's why, though I love the Adam West type costume I rather have Batman in all black uniform.

    I always liked DD's red costume. But the sculpting on this one is great! Congratulations and happy birthday.
