For this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got three custom action figures from the kick-ass Netflix Daredevil series:
Marvel Legends Netflix Daredevil (battle-damaged) and Nobu (the Hand) by moomoo1366: This pair of figures are being sold separately but would make a great 2-pack. I’ve seen quite a few black-suited Daredevil customs, but this is the first with battle-damage. Fitting, because it’s Nobu from the Hand who messed him up. Daredevil ends Wednesday, May 27 at 12:23PM PST. Nobu ends Wednesday, May 27 at 12:16PM PST.
For this edition of Border Patrol, we’re highlighting three iconic Marvel superheroes:
Marvel Legends Captain America by Shinobitron: This may be a simple kitbash using parts from the original Toy Biz Captain America with a more recent Cap re-release from Hasbro, but the clean paint job makes it exceptional. I am usually not a fan of that Hasbro body without the vest (see the original ML Drax) but with the Toy Biz head and gloves, it works well proportionally. Ends Sunday, May 24 at 7:57PM PST.
Bill has had his hands full moving and setting up a new home, but with Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters now and Ant-Man not far behind, he managed to put together a new comic featuring (you guessed it) the Avengers with a special appearance by Ant-Man! Please enjoy the Ghost in the Machine Man, and be sure to check out the rest of Bill’s work here at AFP and at Bill’s Comics.
Hasbro has released hi-res pics of the upcoming Hulkbuster wave of Marvel Legends, and we’ve got them here in all their glory. The wave consists of War Machine from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel Now! Iron Man, Doctor Strange, the Vision, Blizzard, a re-do of Valkyrie, and Thundra from the Lady Liberators.
It looks like you’ll have to pick up all seven figures to make the build-a-figure Hulkbuster – not a surprise given its size. Pre-orders have not yet hit for the wave, but I’ll keep searching for Marvel Legends at Entertainment Earth and Amazon, for where I usually find the best deals on cases and individual figures respectively.
A short while ago we came across an Instagram post of this Avengers-themed Marvel Legends 5-pack. With the Disney Store marking, we learned it was to be exclusive to the retail chain, but only in the European Union stores. Since the exclusive is comprised of re-issued figures, its exclusivity outside the United States wouldn’t raise much interest or concern. However, keen observers noted that a new interchangeable head for Tony Stark was included with Iron Man. Hard to imagine that the smallest piece in this pack could be the most sought after, but stranger things have happened.
Hasbro has shared high res pics of the set with us.
