I scored my Marvel Famous Covers Daredevil on E-Bay for a mere $11.94- far less than I had seen him typically go for. Many hail the Hasbro Spiderman Origins Series Daredevil over my ToyBiz version, but I respectfully disagree. Though Toybiz reversed the crossing “DD” chest insignia, and gave him the dreaded mittens, I like his chunky rubber boots and bright red suit. His two part fighting baton, which tucks into a sheath strapped to his thigh was a nice touch as well, though he doesn't like to hold it. What a FUN toy!
Speaking of mittens, I’d like to make a public service announcement concerning the Marvel Famous Covers line: THE SOFT VINYL USED ON THESE FIGURES HAS A TENDENCY TO STICK TO THE WINDOW PANEL OF TOYBIZ’S PACKAGING, CAUSING IT TO TEAR. Such was the case with my Daredevil’s mittens- I wasn’t too concerned due to the price and my distaste for the said mittens/gloves. Though it was listed as “new” on E-Bay, the seller either neglected to check condition of the item, or simply realized I wouldn’t bother to return due to shipping costs. I hate to give a bad review, or be a squeaky wheel… what would YOU do?
