Thank you to the Disney Store for providing their exclusive Marvel Select Taskmaster figure for review. 

Availability: 2020

Taskmaster is packaged in the standard blister card packaging for the Marvel Select line, which includes artwork of the character on the front of the bubble, along with comic art on the side, and images of the figure on the back.

 

Taskmaster is long overdue for the Select treatment, and DST’s sculpting team is giving fans something truly special for this release. Taskmaster comes in his blue, white and orange costume, with a white hood on both of his head sculpts, metallic gold buttons, and a brown belt and strap around his waist and chest. The belt includes pouches, with his iconic logo belt buckle, and the holsters for this sword and pistol attached. He also has a quiver that is attached to the strap around his waist on his back. This can hold the included three arrows, and it also has tops of sculpted arrows that are non-removable.

 

Most of the outfit is blue, white some parts including the gloves, crouch, boots, hood and the back of the cape are white. The inside the cape is orange, as are his biceps, and the upper chest area is orange with white trim. The two head sculpts look great and includes his classic skull head, and his more modern white mask head.

 

Taskmaster includes a shield, a sword, a pistol, a bow, three removable arrows, and bow-firing hand along with two head sculpts. Each of these accessories are nicely painted and sculpted, and match the source material well. The shield is painted in metallic sviler, blue and gold. The sword is painted in metallic silver with a gold handle, with orange at the center of the blade where it meets the handle. The box is painted in metallic silver, gold and blue, with a string attached to it. The pistol is painted in metallic silver with a black handle.

The articulation is standard for the line, and includes a ball jointed head, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbow, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, swivel calves, hinged and rocker ankles.

Overall, Taskmaster is an excellent figure with some incredible sculpting and detail, including the pouches, straps on his thighs, belt, head sculpts and accessories. Taskmaster pays a great likeness to the comics, and is a well made figure that fans will definitely enjoy.
