Hi all , i just picked this figure up during the weekend and it totally blew me away:)
I had pre ordered it some time ago and have been anticipating it ever since.
Now we have a GOOD 1/6 Punisher figure lol.
Feel free to click on any of the pics to get a larger view!!
|Out of box|
Punisher is just a normal human with no special powers but he's went up against all odds with the likes of Ghostrider, Wolverine, Spiderrman, Daredevil and many more.
I'll be calling this figure Punisher/ Frank Castle in this review as 'SAVES' sounds weird.
This figure is based off the most recent movie 'Punisher War Zone' starring Ray Stevenson as the Punisher.
There is 3 movies made of the Punisher thus far and i loved all of them.
This 3rd Punisher starring Ray Stevenson looks alot like the one penciled by John Romita Jr. during 1992 spin off of the same name Punisher: Warzone.But thats just my opinion :P
Warzone had Punisher going up against Jig-Saw.
Hope they make another with either Bushwacker, Kingpin or Daredevil would be great.
Anyways lets get the ball rolling!!
I have not included any pictures of the box as i took a dented box from my supplier as he knew i was going to discard it anyways lol.
Out of the box the figure is dressed in black tactical long sleeve shirt and pants. He also sports a black leather belt, a pair of black socks and shoes.
The figure has tight joints and features a pair of bendable hands with fingerless black gloves.
Gears Check: 1 body vest , 1 black padded combat belt and 2 pouches.
Stands Check: 1 diorama base.
The workmanship of the costume is not bad by my standards and the buckles are solid and don't break easy.Everything fits where its suppose to go. I only experienced problem fitting the 2 buttons that secure the neck collar to the body vest as the pins are very small. All else are great.
The diorama base is a nice touch added by Art Figures.
The skull on his body vest is also well done as it gives a fading effect to make it look realistic.
All 3 handgun hostlers hold the guns well and each have a strap to secure the gun.
The combat knife also fits into the sheath nicely.
The M4 Carbine rifle is also nicely sculpted but doesn't feature moving safety switches , chamber covers or labelling. The stock is extendable though. The Rifle sling fits around the neck collar nicely also.
I have read online that a lot of folks find his facial expression as depressed. I think he just looks grim in my opinion just like the comics.
Final impressions: This figure totally rocks! He doesn't have a lot of accessories but what he has already gets the job done. Any 1/6 collector will have no problem adding weapons to this figure lol.
All in all i strongly recommend this figure to all and non Punisher fans out there. At a very affordable price point, great quality & workmanship, great gear for bashing you have a win win situation.
Hope this review has been of help to you...Ciao!!!
