Following Batman is the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker. A modern take on the villain, this guy has elements from many sources. He looks very dangerous. Face sculpt on him is what sold me. He has a grin that is large, but not demonic. He's a thin fellow, but full of menace. He really looks like he could torture the good folks of Gotham.
Really liked the Netflix Punisher character. They really did a good job of making him the insane, obsessive character from the comics, but grounded in a depressing realism. His loss of family, PTSD, and fragile psyche combined really made a man you could feel sorry for, without really cheering for. Mezco captured that character perfectly. Jon Bernthal's likeness is very well done, and he's got a worn, tortured look to his face.
Not wanting Frank to be without his origin buddy, I added Matt Murdock, attorney for Hell's Kitchen. Known to his neighbors as The Devil, Netflix's Daredevil is sadly the "worst" of the Mezco. Accessories are really limited. He's got his sticks, an alternate masked head, and hands. He really needed an unmasked head, considering he spent 99% of the show unmasked. Otherwise he's another solid looking figure. His sticks can be stored in his leg sheaths or combined into a staff.
- Tons of detail in very small figures.
- Really nice variety of accessories per character.
- Switching hands/heads/accessories is smooth, unlike other brands.
- Ankles are very wobbly on some of the figures, making standing difficult.
- No Matt head for Daredevil.
