Hi!

My boyfriend's favorite is Daredevil. I don't know anything about Daredevil. I had only heard the name, I didn't know what he looked like or anything.

So therefor I need your help! I want to buy one of the collectibles as a surprise gift, but I have no idea which one he'd like the most.

Help me pick a cool one for him!
I know it's a matter of personal taste, but still, every little input will be deeply appreciated.

Hi Anna. Wow you're a really nice gf! First of all, when is his birthday?

The armored version is still available through this ***LINK*** (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=900322&utm_source=search0109). It looks like this:

https://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/900322_press01-001.jpghttps://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/900322_press02-001.jpg

The "Punisher vs. Daredevil" diorama which is a piece where they are fighting is availble through this ***LINK*** (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=9006&utm_source=search0109). and looks like this:

https://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/9006_press01-001.jpghttps://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/9006_press01-001.jpghttps://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/9006_press07-001.jpg

Unfortunately the Daredevil statue (comiquette) in his red, more recognisable costume is sold out and you will have to get on the waitlist to get one, which means you may get one if someone cancels or they find extra stock somehow. That's more risky. But here's the ***LINK*** (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=900323&utm_source=search0109) anyways. Lastly there is the yellow costume from this ***LINK*** (https://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=900327&utm_source=search0109) which is also sold out.
https://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/900323_press01-001.jpghttps://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/900327_press01-001.jpg

Personally, I don't like the Daredevil versus Punisher diorama as the pose look a little awkward and Punisher's face is messed up, but I'm sure others will have a different view. I do like the black armored Daredevil, although he is not in his traditional red garb and think that is your best bet if you want to get it on short notice. Another viable option, depending on how far his birthday is to try to get a red garb one off ebay or one of the members who may cancel.

Hope this helps and I'm sure more avid Daredevil fans will offer differing opinions. Good luck! :)

I agree. This is the one to get. While there are others, this might be the best one to get at the price you're probably willing to pay (under $200). Call local comic stores in your area. You might get lucky. If not, then try eBay. Type in "Bowen Daredevil statue"

Forget that Bowen, my brother is a HUGE Daredevil fan and his two prized possessions (if you can get them) are...


Marvel Milestones Daredevil on Cross

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v247/illJedi26/Collectibles%20Pics/DDstatue.jpg

Hard Hero Daredevil

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v247/illJedi26/Collectibles%20Pics/daredevil_ppg.jpg

...these are both bigger than the Bowen too and you can get the Hard Hero now for $160 or cheaper. Not sure what the Marvel Milestones goes for, but it's at $41 right now. Good luck!

there are a lot of options. Ebay is truly your best bet, other than a local comicbook store.

there are 2 versions from a company called Bowen Designs (and a couple of colour variations with each) as well as a version from a company called Hard Hero (either in red or yellow).

There is also a company called Attakus, which has a really nice BIG statue (again in red or yellow).

You should not be paying more than $200 shipped for any of these off ebay, so be careful, as there are a lot of sellers trying to rip people off with ridiculous prices.

best of luck!

This is pretty cool as well, as Ill was saying larger in size and size matters no matter what the grl tells yah.

My only gripe would be that DD be painted a darker maroon.

Firstly...this post has given me new hope for GF's everywhere. Good stuff! :)

Secondly, agreed with ecekat, get the above. And like people said, no more than $200 shipped.

I personally prefer the Hard Hero Daredevil. The Bowen Daredevil in Yellow is my second favorite....however, this will probably change drastically once Sideshow makes a Daredevil PF.

Wow, that's a good bunch of answers, thank you soooo much!
I'll have a look through it all during the day (or tomorrow)!
I have a ton of work going on with deadlines to meet, but I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

It wasn't really for his birthday (which is in June) btw, I just felt for surprising him. So there's no time-limit, but I wanna buy it pretty soon just because I feel eager, haha...

Some Nice Daredevils:

Bowen Classic Standing Red or Yellow
Bowen (Recent) Action Red, Yellow and Armor

Hard Hero Yellow and Red (Action)

Attakus Red & Yellow with flame base (much larger than Bowen or HH).

Sideshow Dio.

Ah nice, if you have time try to get the red bowen for sure. The hard hero one is the other option. Like both of those.

Anna

Ok, I narrowed it down to three finalists:
*Bowen, red with gargoyle
*Punisher vs Daredevil
*Hard Hero


I'm pretty sure the first one is the one I'm gonna go with.

I also like the Punisher vs Daredevil one, but if you say the face's weird on that one, then I wouldn't feel good about buying it.

I came across another forum where many were sceptical about the HH one, being upside down. I personally like it, but I have to go with a safe bet, and most of you seem to vote for the one with the gargoyle (I love that word.)


Now I'm gonna have a little look around for ones for sale! This could be a great Valentine's-gift.
Thanks for links, pics, help and a few good laughs! :D
