This is a replacement for an old DD custom that I've had in use since 2001. i wanted to go all out and no matter what base body i looked into using (FO Punisher, DCUC Black Manta and Mercury, many more) none of them seemed exactly right for my needs, which among other things have very specific scale requirements. So what i ended up doing is making a new medium-build superarticulated bodytype. Daredevil doesn't have much of a costume to speak of, and the bodytype, head and hands will need to do the talking.

What I came up with is the DCSH series 1 Batman torso and shoulders, 1stX-men classic series Tiger Stripe Wolverine's arms, HML Red Daredevil's legs w/ billy club pouch, Bullseye boots and hands with DCD Hush Batman's hands as alternates. Making interchangeable parts is a pain to getright, but love having them. And there are plenty of alternate heads too. My fave you're seeing in these pics is actually taken from my old custom, because I just love it so much. It's Evil Ramon from a 90s Zorro toyline. The alternates are a Face Off Daredevil head and a modified DCUC Specter head.

Been working on it since around August of last year at least, doing some of the construction work alongside the Morrigan I released last January. Lots of work but pleased with it, and like all of mine can be posed repeatedly without paintrub, so he's fun. let me know what you think!

Cheers,
-StrangePlanet

I am typically not a big fan of Daredevil, but man this figure makes me want to be one. Very, very impressive.

Hey thanks! I really appreciate every comment I get and I take them all to heart, so it's nice to hear something so nice about this piece. DD is a tough one to get right and still make interesting. This is one of my favorite customs I've ever done and it's always nice to hear comments.

amazing how do u keep the paint so smooth

This figure had many many paint applications to get it right. It started off all black. Then I spraypainted red on it from the top pointing down. Then there was a lot of drybrushing in layers of brighter and brighter red. That took many coats to slowly build up color where I wanted it. Takes practice; I've been doing this for a while. Thanks for the kind words.

This is great. I want to thank you for the nice comment you left on my movie DD fig. When I saw it, I thought I´d check your stuff, and seeing this DD, I thought I´d pay you in kind, not because I felt forced to it, no, just because I think this is a great figure. Excellent base choice, assembling of different parts, intercangeable abilities ( I´m a sucker for those in an action figure), and a beautiful paint job. Hope to see more of your work, and once again ,thanks for the encouraging.

That body makes a huge difference. Never liked the neck on it, but I guess that might be worth retooling. One of the slickest use of parts I've seen in a while, great job all around!

Thanks so much for the kind words everybody. This was a real labor of love and it's nice to hear your comments.
And to answer you question Bartowski, paint rub is so hard to work around if you insist on having it fully posable like I do. I don't know how you guys can stand making superposable toys because it's so much work to get them right. Those shoulders had to be sanded down a ton to get them to turn in the sockets without touching. Some Dremel work but a lot of hand sanding. Then you prime the whole piece and work all the joints to see what parts have paint rub, then sand down those pieces, prime again, test, over and over and over until it's right. Then some particularly hard spots like the ankles and knees I'd paint and coat with Superglue to make tough, then Testor's Dullcoat over it. It's a huge pain. Maybe I'll just start doing what some of you guys do and take the whole thing apart and sand down every piece and put it back together.

Man finally someone nailed this guy! Great job. My favorite DD so far on Realm.

I'm not sure I've ever commented on a DD before. Most of them kind of look the same to me. I REALLY like the flat tones you've got going with this. Very sharp! Oh yeah, NAHICE!!
