Pre-Order Alert: Sideshow Premium Format Daredevil, Hot Toys Iron Man Busts Series 2

300169-daredevil-003It’s Thursday, and that means new Marvel pre-orders from Sideshow Collectibles!  Today they put up for pre-order a long-awaited new Premium Format Figure and eight new Iron Man armors from Hot Toys!

For the Premium Format Figure we have — Daredevil!  While some classic Marvel characters like Captain America, the Red Skull, and Hulk are getting their second Premium Format statues (technically Hulk is on his 4th, not counting Skaar!)  Daredevil, despite being a long-time comic book favorite and an original Stan Lee creation, has never gotten the quarter scale treatment.  I have seen many people on Sideshow’s Twitter feed, Facebook page, and site comments asking when ol’ hornhead would finally get the devil’s due.  The answer is today–Sideshow has finally put a Daredevil Premium Format Figure up for pre-order!

Showing the classic hero in his red outfit, Daredevil is in a striking action pose, mid-strike, holding his billy clubs in one hand and ready to throw a punch with the other.  He stands 17-inches tall and weighs 12 lbs, and is expected to ship in March, 2015.

Surprisingly there is no exclusive edition of this figure.  While Daredevil doesn’t have the gadgets of some heroes, I thought an unmasked portrait or swap-out hand would be a given.  Even in cases where there were no accessories Sideshow would often make an exclusive edition with an art print.  However there is only one version of Daredevil here.  (Though, given their recent repaints of Premium Format Figures like Deadpool, Storm, the Stormtrooper, and 3 different Hulk paint jobs, I would not be surprised in 2-3 months to see a Yellow-clad Daredevil Premium Format show up in an extremely limited edition).
