The 7" Diamond Select Daredevil, based on the Netflix TV series, is a bit of an enigma at present as to how he will fit in with the usual Diamond Select Marvel range, While technically an MCU character, these packaged images indicate he is being treated more like a comicbook figure with a classic comic Daredevil side art panel and graphics in line with the comic book releases. The Netflix logo's are there, but the overall look is certainly more aligned to the comic book releases.
As fans we felt a little disappointed by the removal of the unmasked Matt Murdock head from the set. But what is that I spy in the packaging, is that a little extra inclusion from Diamond by means of a black articulated display stand? Looks like the Devil of Hells kitchen is going to be a similar design to comic book Star Lord with a plug socket in his back for the stand. This is going to lend itself to some pretty impressive dynamic poses IF the articulation meets our expectations.
While the front and side of the pack scream Comic Select, the card rear is more aligned to what we see on the MCU releases. There is no "also avalailable" which again indicates this releases hasn't quite found its place in the Select range.
The figure release is imminent and earlier it seems than the November date. And Diamond are very good at ensuring a simultaneous Worldwide release. Watch out for this landing in your local store. Or you can pre-order still with our partner Toys in The Attic
