Diamond Select Toys Announces Daredevil Minimates
Following the release of Marvel’s Daredevil season 2 on Netflix back in March 2016, Diamond Select Toys has announced the addition of Daredevil characters to its Minimates line.
The set contains Daredevil/Matt Murdock (with interchangeable pieces), superhero ally Claire Temple, best friend Foggy Nelson, and villain Wilson Fisk. The version of the Daredevil costume in this set is the black outfit from early season 1, making it a neat reminder of the character’s origins. Any later sets seem likely to include the current incarnation of the costume. It’s great to see the tough and resourceful Claire (a.k.a. The Night Nurse) in the set. Hopefully we’ll get Elektra and Karen Page in the next wave of figures, too. As The Geekiary’s been noticing, there seems to be a positive, upward trend in the inclusion of female characters in merchandise lately for multiple properties.
From the Diamond Select Toys press release:
Marvel Minimates Daredevil TV Series 1 Box Set
A Diamond Select Toys release! The critically acclaimed TV show is joining the Marvel Minimates line! Based on the popular online TV series Daredevil, this box set of four different Minimates mini-figures features plenty of accessories and interchangeable parts! Daredevil (in his black costume) includes alternate parts to transform into blind lawyer Matt Murdock, while nurse Claire Temple includes an alternate masked head, hood and gloved hands. Rounding out the set are Matt’s partner Foggy Nelson and Hell’s Kitchen crime lord Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. the Kingpin! Each 2-inch Minimates mini-figure measures 2 inches tall and features 14 points of articulation. Packaged in a full-color window box! (Item #MAY162405, SRP: $24.99)
The set will be available in Fall 2016.
There’s no word from Netflix as to when Daredevil season 3 will drop, mostly due to schedule juggling for filming of The Defenders, which unites the characters in Netflix’s street-level Marvel superhero shows.
In the meantime, there’s always rewatching on Netflix and the release of new action figures.
