    Spidey Sideshow Daredevil

    Weird that they would just create their own version of the character or are they known for this?

    ^All the Sideshow stuff is like that...it's their interpretation. Same with Mezco. Some people like it...some don't. My two cents is there have been plenty of 100% comic accurate Daredevils made. Stuff like this adds variety and visual interest to a collection. As long as the design is cool, which it is...I'm okay with it. I actually wish this was his Netflix costume.

    Please point me in the direction of these "100% comic accurate" 1:6 cloth-costumed Daredevils.

    Sideshow's 1:6 Marvel & DC lines have been a huge disappointment for me. Their Green Lantern is so bad I wouldn't want it at $50, let alone the $220 they sold it at. Same with Mezco. I'm as big a Captain America fan as there is, but I was so underwhelmed by the SDCC One:12 Cap I bought that I haven't touched it since my first look after it arrived.

    emyawd72, if it's a Netflix DD you want, Hot Toys is doing one for the same price as the "Sideshow Interpretation" version:

    Let me say first this stuff and the Mezco stuff looks great but I can't afford to start collecting these lines. I look at all this awesomeness and I think I wish it wasn't a new design. I get what you're saying about variety and visual interest and the designs are cool. It's just a lot to pay and be off character to me. Don't get me wrong though if I win the lottery I would love to have shelfs full of this stuff. It looks like they might have been inspired by Netflix Daredevil design. Bottom line is like with the Mezco Green Arrow it looks so cool but I can't help but think, how cool would the Neal Adams design be?

    I was looking for a more comic accurate figure and this one fits the bill. I really enjoy the Daredevil series on Netflix so it's no knock against them. But I wanted a closer look to the comic in this scale. I'll get this one.
    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    I'll point you somewhere alright...

    There are many 100% comic accurate Daredevils. Secret Wars, Toy Biz 1990, Marvel Legends, Marvel Legends Icons, Marvel Universe, Hasbro Signature Series, Marvel Select, Diamond Select...I can't help it if there isn't one in the exact scale you want.

    I'm aware there is a Hot Toys Netflix Daredevil...what I meant is I wish he wore the Sideshow costume on the show. It looks much better.

    I wouldn't rule out comic accurate figures from Mezco...they have a Frank Miller DKR Superman coming at some point...it was just pushed back. I think they have plans for more comic specific figures.

    I"'m a great DD fan, including the cheesier "non-Miller" apects. I like this costume, honestly it's better than any Marvel variant and, agreeing with Tom, I'd have liked to see it in the series.

    Sideshow 1:6 Marvel and DC figures are too pricey for me up to $250. SS 1:6 Marvel and Mezco 1:12 were both announced at 2014 SDCC and I have gone with 1:12 ever since. Mezco announcing 1:12 Marvel at 2016 Toy Fair and the reveals and interview with Pierre at 2017 TF cinched it for me. I received 1:12 Red Daredevil and Modern Punisher this week and love them.I have a dozen 1:12 now with at least that many more on the Way. 1:12 is best figure line.

    If SS had made 1:6 Marvel and DC over 10 years ago starting at $50 each like Star Wars I would have bought them all. Like SW these are too expensive. Mezco 1:12 is a more affordable alternative.

    Oops. Reading comprehension failure on my part.
    I realize there have been a bunch of comic-based DDs; I like the EMCE version, and would've liked the Famous Covers version if not for the chunky boots, incorrect DD insignia, and pin-head.
    But I'd really like a comic-accurate 1:6 cloth-costumed version. I will say, though, I think Mezco's One:12 Yellow DD looks great; just wish their red version didn't have shoulder pads.
