Paint is barely worth mentioning, but what’s here is good. The logo is crisp and the chin is painted spot-on with sharp lines (Batman/Mattel could take lessons). The subtle red on the eyes really works. The only improvement here would be the gloves. I don’t need a forearm swivel here, but that would make this perfect, match the boots, and not have the scratches in the paint on the forearms.
Alright, now the only thing I don’t like about the figure. The billy club. It looks good. The two pieces can connect or be held separately (no connecting rope though) and fit snugly in the harness. They look slightly oversized there, but no biggie. No, the problem is that they’re eraser level soft. I don’t know how Daredevil can meet out justice with movie props. He does hold them well, but kinda makes me wish I’d kept any of the accessories from all those Daredevil figures I sold to get here. Oh, and there are some Hobgoblin parts. I’ve united another collector with those already, so no pics. Daredevil includes the left arm and a clear pumpkin bomb for the BAF.
Overall though? I love this figure. The buck is a great starting point, the specific Daredevil bits finish it off (I love the head sculpt) and the paint and articulation completes the package. The only thing I’d really change is those gosh darn billy clubs. This finally has to be the one. I’ve got it. No more upgrades or updates for me. Unless they finally make Armored Daredevil in Legends scale. I’d be all over that.
