I believe it is because the Punisher character was introduced as someone trying to take out Spider-man.
I am very happy to add DD and Punisher to my minifig case next to Luke Cage and Iron Fist. We just need a Jessica Jones and 10,000 Hand ninjas to round out the display...
Also looking forward to MOCing the top of this building to make an actual minifig-modular scale back. (Right after I finish the back of Cinderella Castle, a proper Disney World/Magic Kingdom Train Station... and that Osaka Castle that's been but a glint in my eye for a few years...)
Wonder if there are any tie in freebies with this set's launch?
I for one will keep it tall and proud, and I certainly hope we see more stuff like that down the line.
I also learned the boxes inside boxes insides boxes theory from him once upon a time. Even I don't know how much LEGO I have anymore. Genius!
I would also like Elektra and a Kingpin bigfig please.
Looks pretty good as far as I'm concerned.
And yes, being able to conceal an enormous amount of LEGO is one of my specialties. I am happy to pass along my wisdom to others.
Side note, I'm getting giddy about Daredevil. I'm very, very relieved that he's not an SDCC minifigure. (Although I am getting antsy about the Sam Wilson Captain America. I want one!)
That being said, that Daredevil figure may be the best of the bunch.
As for LEGO concealment, I freely admit that I’ve been doing a poor job of it recently with the continuing arrivals from Poland and random large set boxes now sitting on our sofa. But I did successfully hide some Bygglek in my Bygglek after an IKEA run. :o)
I also really like the building to the right of the DB in that pic. I assume that's a moc and that I didn't fall into a coma for a year without realising.
So, you did have a coma ;-)
Maybe someone needs to start a "warning signs that you have too much lego" thread.
Well, some of us already have a few Deadpools. And not those silly Western and Duck versions.
