A while back some images surfaced of a never before seen 12 inch Daredevil figure. The pictures were not that great, but you could tell the packaging seemed special.
Well today Hasbro revealed the figure to everyone and lo and behold it is an SDCC 2017 exclusive release!
SDCC exclusives always have unique packaging that sets them apart from standard releases. In this case, we have custom art by Joe Quesada, Marvel’s chief creative officer. The box is a gorgeous red with braille on the back! That is a great touch for the blind superhero from Hell’s Kitchen!
The 12 inch Marvel Legends line comes at a higher price point but they pack them with plenty of accessories, so you get your money’s worth. Daredevil will come with 12 character inspired accessories including interchangeable hands, clubs, an alternate head and a removable cowl. The box will also include two posters drawn by Quesada.
The detail on this figure is gorgeous. I particularly like the holster on his leg. I don’t remember Murdock having hair that long but it works. The armored gauntlets look great but i think they may have been previously used on the Captain America figure. The boots may have been reused as well. It doesn’t really matter because they work well on this guy.
Since this is a convention exclusive, your best chance of getting it is by going to booth #3329. They will be selling for $59.99. Following the convention a small number will be made available on HasbroToyShop.com. The good news is you have a chance to buy it whether you attend the convention or not, but if you try to get it on the website, make sure you have a pot of coffee, 5 hour energy, Red Bull or whatever your go to energy drink is because you are going to be up all night refreshing for a chance at getting it. Or you can pay triple on eBay.
