Overview

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Previews Exclusive Daredevil

 

Mezco Toyz is offering the third version of their One:12 Daredevil figure in his classic yellow and red suit. The other versions that are currently available are the modern red costume, and Shadowland Daredevil that was exclusively available at New York Comic-Con 2016. This classic version is based on the early days of the character as seen in Marvel Comics back in the 1960’s.

A PREVIEWS Exclusive! Blinded by a radioactive liquid while saving a stranger, young Matt Murdock gains “radar sense” and experiences heightened senses beyond normal human ability. After the brutal death of his Father, Matt Murdock donned his costume and became the man without fear – Daredevil. Lawyer by day and vigilante by night, Daredevil is the guardian of Hell’s Kitchen. Painstakingly developed to capture the iconic look of the heroic character and outfitted on a One:12 Collective body, the costume is intricately detailed. The final result is a seamless blend of a timeless hero with a “real world” look. This 1/12-scale figure boasts 32 points of articulation and features an accurate real fabric uniform that recreates the Man Without Fear’s original yellow costume.

Daredevil is sculpted in a soft goods yellow outfit over the plastic articulated body, with a dark red vest and shorts that are made of leather over the soft goods. The letter “D” is painted in a lighter red over the chest part of the leather top. Around the edges and sides of the vest and shorts (as well as the soft goods yellow fabric) are hand stitched to hold it in place, as this is a high-end figure, we would expect nothing less. Sculpted over that piece is a red belt with two straps, gold belt buckles, pouches on the right hip of the belt, and a holster for the billy clubs. There is an additional strap wrapped around the left thigh holding the holster in place. The boots and gloves are nicely detailed and painted in a similar dark red as the leather vest and shorts. They also have a black wash over it, which really looks great in between the lines of the boots and gloves.

He comes with a great variety of hand sculpts, which includes closed fisted, billy club open fisted, and sets of several different posed hands as seen in the gallery below. The articulation is also really nicely done including key points such as a ball jointed neck, ball jointed waist, ball jointed shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel glove and wrist, ball jointed hips, double-hinged knees, and ball jointed boots.

 

 

Daredevil’s head sculpt is masked and helmeted, and includes the devil horns on top, with an additional head sculpts that features battle damage and an unmasked head. The battle damaged head is the most detailed with bruises around his left eye and even the mask and helmet part is cracked, revealing more of his face.

 

 

Daredevil comes with two sets of billy clubs, one set that can be held in each hand, and the other set that are connected to a thin wire. What is unfortunate here is that during the photo shoot, the wire snapped off right off the tip of one of the billy clubs, and due to how this was sculpted, it is not possible to fix this ourselves. So we’re hoping that Mezco Toyz comes through for us with a replacement on that. Also included is a figure stand that is painted in yellow, with the letter “D”, an acrylic figure stand with a clip on the end for various poses, sonar posing post clip-on accessory, and a sonar disc.

One:12 figures are not cheap, but they are a cheaper high-end alternative compared to Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, and other companies that make action figures with soft goods. Daredevil is a beautiful figure, and if it wasn’t for that wire breaking, he would have been perfect.
