The Punisher (Francis "Frank" Castle) is a fictional character that appears in Marvel Comics. The character was created by the writer Gerry Conway and the artists John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru, with the publisher Stan Lee founded the name. The Punisher made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man # 129 (letter of February 1974).
The Punisher is a vigilante who uses murder, kidnapping, blackmail, coercion, threats of violence and torture in his war. about crime. Driven by the death of his wife and two children who were murdered by the crowd because they witnessed a murder in New York's Central Park, the Punisher is conducting a one-man war against the mob and all criminals in general by all conventional methods are used. Weapons of war. A war veteran and sniper of the United States Marine Corps Scout, Frank Castle (born Francis Castiglione) is a master of martial arts, stealth tactics, guerrilla warfare and a variety of weapons.
Jon Bernthal portrays the character in the second season of Marvel's Daredevil as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Bernthal will resume the role in The Punisher, his own self-titled series.
This is the Hot Toys TMS004 Marvel's Daredevil 1/6 scale Jon Bernthal as a Punisher 12-inch collectible figure and he comes armed with a M134 minigun. An M134 minigun sits in a gun cache that Frank in "The Darkness at the End of the tunnel "(S2E12). Later, you will see him in season 2 finale "A Cold Day in Hell" (S2E13).
The boxing cover has a braille code that means "The Punisher" because the main character of Charlie Cox's TV series Daredevil / Matt Murdock is blind. The window showing the figure and the contents looks like the signature skull of the Punisher.
Hot Toys Punisher comes with GE M134 mini rifle, sniper rifle, revolver gun and dagger with sheath. Not many weapons, as I would have liked, because he is the Punisher and weapons are part of his repertoire.
In "A Cold Day in Hell" (S2E13), Frank is seen with a Barrett MRAD, or Multi-Role Adaptive Design rifle. The rifle is based on the Barrett M98. In "New York's Finest" (S2E03), Frank Castle / The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) is above Daredevil, armed with a Smith & Wesson Model 327 Performance Center TRR8. The Ka-Bar (protected as KA-BAR) is the popular name for the Combat Knife, first introduced in November 1942 by the United States Marine Corps as a 1219C2 Combat Knife (later USMC Mark 2 Fighter Knife or Knife, called Fighting Utility). ), and later adopted by the United States Navy as a US Navy knife, Mark 2. And then there's the M134 minigun.
The figure also comes with accessories such as a specially designed figure base with character type shield and paper background, damaged Daredevil helmet (not portable on the figure) and extra hands for setting up options. The sets that Hot Toys recently recorded with their characters are useless because they are too short and too narrow to be used as a display, and I usually leave them in the box.
Here's a closer look at the 1 / 6th scale damaged Daredevil helmet, which is included in this Hot Toys Punisher set. I think the crack is not obvious enough and it does not look very battered / damaged.
Hot Toys TMS004 Marvel's Daredevil 1 / 6th Scale Punisher 12-Inch Collectible Figurine Instructions sheet explains how to shell the black leather and attach the ammo belt to the mini cannon.
It also shows you the moving parts of the Barrett MRAD rifle (Multi-Role Adaptive Design) like the screw and the foldable rifle. The Daredevil mask is not wearable and the usual care instructions for the figure are mentioned.
Here is Hot Toys TMS004 Marvels Daredevil 1/6 scale Jon Bernthal as a Punisher 12-Inch Collectible figure with the M134 Minigun. A distinctive invention of fiction is the hand-held M134 Minigun, a concept popularized by the 1980s-90s Predator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, by Jesse Ventura / Bill Duke and Arnold Schwarzenegger each and last seen in Furious 7 (fired from Dwayne Johnson). In general, such representations will completely ignore the weapon's need for external power and sometimes even forget that it needs a source of ammunition. In fact, a portable M134 minigun would be nearly impossible and impractical for a human to either transport or operate.
The M134 Minigun is a 7.62 × 51mm NATO, six-barrel rotating machine gun with a high rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute). The 1/6 minigun comes only with ammo belt. I've added the bag from the previously released Hot Toys MMS001 Battle Damaged Terminator Kit (see the photos HERE ), as it looks more realistic than just hanging loose with the ammo belt coming out of the bag.
