REVIEW: Netflix Daredevil from DST

Marvel Select is Diamond Select Toys’ premium line of Marvel Comics’ action figures. They’re a little more articulated than your average action figure and sculpted by a number of different, well-known sculptors. For example, the Netflix Daredevil action figure we’re featuring in this review was sculpted by Gentle Giant.

Based on Daredevil’s look in Season 2 of the Netflix series, this version of Matt Murdock is wearing his dark red and black superhero outfit. The figure includes a few accessories. There’s two different sets of hands – fists and open hands. The open hands are meant to hold his pair of billy clubs. In addition to the weapons, the figure includes a plastic background diorama.

The first thing I would do is toss the diorama. It looks nice and all, but this is more of a play toy than a display toy. There’s a lot of articulation there for a plastic figure that’s not 1/6th scale.

Other Daredevil figures I’ve seen have come packaged with a number of different billy clubs – separated, connected into one, connected via a wire. This one version has the separated (that can turn into a single) version. It also has a holster, where you can stow those billy clubs.

While it’s based on the likeness of Charlie Cox as Daredevil, it’s tough sculpting and painting a partial face sculpt at this scale. And trying to duplicate facial hair is often the downfall of many a good figure. Unfortunately, Daredevil sort of looks like he just finished up eating a mud pie.

With that said, my kids loved adding this to their action figure rotation. At $24.99, it’s really a toy for kids to play with (even if it’s from a TV-MA Netflix series).

KICKSTARTER: Forest Friend Fox Plush

Natural Pop has announced and launched a new Kickstarter project that's looking to raise funds to produce the Forest Friend Fox Plush. Based on Natural Pop's best selling charm - a minimalist fox - and the handmade plush version of it, the plush is being manufactured in order to create an even better fox plush that can meet demand.

The Forest Friend Fox Plush is available beginning at the $25.00 funding level. There are other rewards - including the charm - available at other funding levels.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by .

As I say with all Kickstarter project I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990 film) Baby Turtles Set

For some reason, these guys from the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie always freaked me out.

The set includes 4 Baby Turtles, pizza box, 4 slices of pizza, and bag of corn chips, plus a cool bonus—nunchuks and alternate nunchuk-spinning hand for NECA’s 1/4 Scale Michelangelo Action Figure (figure sold separately).
