The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen comes to the One: 12 Collective!

Yes, the show on Netflix has been canceled, but out of all the Marvel series, it’s the only one where the hero wore a costume. Yes, for not that long, because God forbid we have Daredevil actually wear the costume. But I digress. The Daredevil costume, in general, is a nice desire that fits into both the real world and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Mezco does a great job adapting this costume. From the horns on his head to the laces on his boots. Very impressive sculpting. I do see it’s more based on the costume from the Defenders than Daredevil’s own show. Still, I like it. 

The head sculpt is great, and best of all, the face is clean shaven. I know people don’t like this, but I hated the fact that on the show, Daredevil never shaved. It really ticked me off he had this stupid looking scruff. So I’m truly happy he is smooth as a baby’s bottom!

Now here’s where I have an issue. At an $80 price point, this figure isn’t worth the value. The reason why is the huge lack of accessories when you compare him to other One: 12 figures. He only comes with an additional head, 3 pairs of hands, and a 2 section billy club. I’m sorry, but the price point should be around $60 to $70.

Like all of the One: 12 Collective, there is a full range of motion. I’ve heard some complaints from others, but I’m satisfied with it. He also comes with the standard stand and bag to hold the accessories.

Overall, while I am happy with the figure, I’m not happy with the value. Mezco could have really given us more for $80.
