Hot Toys Reveals Their Badass Daredevil Action Figure

Fans absolutely love what Marvel has done with their Netflix series Daredevil, and I'm sure you're going to like what Hot Toys has done with their action figure of the character. They completely nail the look and that awesome costume that Matt Murdock wears to fight crime in Hell's Kitchen. I wish I could keep up with all these Hot Toys Marvel figures but collecting them is a crazy expensive hobby.

Marvel's Daredevil, the first of a wave of planned Netflix shows based on Marvel Comics characters, has raised the bar high for superhero adaptations on television.The dark, gritty drama has been a triumph with audiences and critics alike, thanks in no small part to its more down-to-earth portrayal of its protagonist, Matt Murdock, a blind man who fights crime as a lawyer by day and a masked vigilante by night. Armed with little more than his heightened senses and superb martial arts skills,

Given the adult nature of Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, we haven't seen a whole lot of merchandise revolving around the Man Without Fear. Thank goodness then that Hot Toys has us covered with this very cool action figure which offers an extremely detailed version of the blind superhero suited up and ready for action. Of course, it's still hard not to be disappointed by the lack of a "Dd" logo on his chest!

It features a newly developed head sculpt with 2 interchangeable facial expressions, a meticulously tailored Daredevil suit, the Billy Club in extended and nunchaku modes, and a specially designed figure stand with character backdrop."

‘Billy Club’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Marshall Caswell, Erin Hammond, Nick Sommer, Max Williamson, Mark Metcalf, Mathew Dunlop | Written and Directed by Drew Rosas, Nick Sommer

I’ve always had a soft spot for slashers with a decent gimmick, so I was delighted when Billy Club‘s penchant for baseball-related violence was revealed. Too many horror movies are content to stick to the humdrum formula of having a nondescript masked killer stalk the nubile teens of Camp Lake Name with no more of a unifying theme than having surfboard impalements be the chief cause of death; not so this film. Here bats, balls, diamonds and even – especially – pitching machines all have a central role to play in the slaughter of Billy Club’s innocent-but-not-quite-so-innocent victims, and the movie is all the more enjoyable for it, despite some ultimately negligible production flaws.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. The film’s story chiefly takes place

Megan Applegate with a recap of the second episode of Ripper Street series two…

Freaks and Friends

The season’s second episode tugged viewers into the underground freak shows of London after a woman with a protruding tail was found murdered in a hospital and her infant son missing.

Detective Inspector Jedediah Shine (Joseph Mawle) is never far behind Reid, Drake and Jackson and the sinister mustachioed lawman pays a visit to Joseph Merrick (Joseph Drake), the Elephant Man, reminding him how he should

Review: Billy Club

Your mileage may vary, but for this horror fan, filmmakers making a sincere effort to deliver a fun, nostalgic slasher pic on a shoestring budget deserve points for effort, even if the results are uneven. An effort that fits that description is Billy Club, which had its world premiere during the Milwaukee Film Festival. It’s raw and flawed and feels like the work of young filmmakers, but it shows promise and has enough going for it to merit viewing.

In 1996, Bobby Spooner (Marshall Caswell) returns to his small Wisconsin hometown after many years away. He quickly hooks up with childhood friends Allison (Erin Hammond), Kyle (Nick Sommer), and Danny (Max Williamson). As kids they played on the same Little League team 15 years prior. After tormenting teammate Billy Haskins for striking out to end a big game, young Billy took revenge by savagely killing two players and the coach. His

Shock Interview: Drew Rosas On His Slasher Film, Billy Club

Attempting to create a new horror icon from scratch is a daunting task, but that’s exactly what the filmmakers behind the new independent slasher pic Billy Club are trying to do. Written and directed by Drew Rosas and Nick Sommer, who also made the Troma release Blood Junkie, their latest breaks down like this:

“Fifteen years after a gruesome triple homicide devastated their Little League baseball team, four friends reunite to commemorate their dead coach and fallen teammates. A mystery unfolds as the secrets from their past return to haunt them and a vengeful killer, hidden by an antique umpire's mask, returns to even the score.”

Shock Till You Drop spoke with Rosas about the balance between paying homage and crafting something new, developing their killer’s look, the challenges of making an indie film far from Hollywood, and more.
