Marvel Legends Spider-<Br>Man: Walgreen's Exclusive Daredevil Review

Daredevil included the same collapsible baton as the original figure. It’s still too rubbery, but it fits in both hands and looks good as long as you get a pose where it’s not bent. This one is appropriately red, though I’ve switched them up as the red set looks great with the regular Daredevil and the white looks just fine here.

We did lose the Hobgoblin part for this release. The packaging actually aligns the figure with the Rhino wave, but there’s no Rhino piece either. We actually got something much cooler: an unmasked Matt Murdock head. It’s a fantastic sculpt though it doesn’t quite mimic the chin of the regular head as well as it should. The only thing that would’ve made it that much better? A loose cowl to fit around the neck when using this head.

But I digress because there’s a cooler thing to do with this figure – you just have to buy an extra Chameleon from Rhino wave. If you’re up for that you can pop Matt’s head on that suited body. The skin tone is a tad off, the suit body is paler, but the dark blue suit with black shirt & tie seems to really fit Matt Murdock. The bad thing for me is that I didn’t do that before taking these pictures and I want Chameleon… and Jameson… and Hammerhead… and now this makes me need four of that figure instead of three. It never ends…

Overall, this is yet another great entry in what has arguably been the best year of Marvel Legends yet. All year long, it’s been the one line that I just can’t quit. We’ve had great figures & great build-a-figures and what’s crazy is this is the 15th year of the line. They’re still getting to characters they’ve never done before while also doing things like this – near-perfect upgrades of old figures. This Daredevil is the last one I’ll be needing for a while, at least until Hasbro figures out how to top it.

    The Matt head is really just a repaint of the Ultimate Hawkeye head. Nice bonus, but unfortunately not original. I suppose it’ll do. I do like the hair sculpt, just not the sport glasses.

    Yellow DD seems to have hit in force around here the last week or so.

    He’s nice, but I do have a few quibbles:

    1. the D seems too big IMO. (TWSS!)
    Sure, this was a mostly forgotten outfit until Dennis Dunphy grabbed it and one of Logan’s old masks for his costume, but it’s never really been “forgotten”, and I never really recall the D being so large across not just his chest, but down across his belly, as well.

    2. the Matt head. yeah, it’s an easy redeco of the first movie Hawkeye head, but it seems a majority have bad paint esp on the lower line of the glasses, either it’s off center or off completely?

    3. my Matt head seems to have a smaller hole for the neck peg? Has anyone else had this problem? Blizzard and Vision bodies refused it, too, and are same mold as DD. movie Hawkeye I had to fight before it snapped on, and Chameleon I walked it down and off.

    and we just missed out on $5 off ML at Walgreens, so I’m not going to buy another one just to check…altho I just remembered I needed another for D-Man (even if Dunphy needs a brawler body like new Sentry) and custom MCU Simon’s head….oy. Then again, my stores seemed to be fully stocked with these and plenty of Agent Venom yet. no rush. or at least, not until DD s2 hits?

  • $15 at Walgreens last week, sweet! Parleyed my savings into a couple of pops, a burrito, and some chocolate Santas.

    The Matt head is a bit bobbley on my Chameleon, but won’t fit on Agent Coulson at all. Be nice if there was a standard neck peg size.

  • Boy Blunder

    Gonna be grabbing this guy soon, but I’m wondering – will the Matt head fit on the Allfather-wave Classic Hawkeye body? I’m not entirely sold on the headsculpt that Clint got on that figure.

    • Joe

      I want to say that it’s the same body, so it should fit, but Hasbro has been known to randomly swap neck pegs between different characters like Coulson and Chameleon. :/

  • Mysterious Stranger

    Incidentally, I was at a Wal-greens last weekend and they had an entire endcap shelf stocked with this figure. None of the other MLs to be found, just this guy.

  • Mark

    What a wonderful figure. I wish we had a Walgreens here. I would probably buy this.
