Here we go with another Walgreens exclusive, Marvel Legends Punisher. The timing of the release seemed close enough to be cashing in on his appearance in the second season of Daredevil, and he's a fairly prominent character, so why make him an exclusive? I'm guessing is's so that he wouldn't be packaged with a build-a-figure piece, and so more accessories could be budgeted in. They did the same for Deadpool, but included him in a standard retail series, so who knows. Either way, the accessories are where the Punisher really shines. He's got the same bazooka as Deadpool (but no boxing glove), a huge machine gun, an inexplicably white shotgun, and two heads. The head that is attached in the packaging is the Jim Lee style 80s head with a Rambo headband, while the other head makes it look like Frank had some bad seafood for lunch. Oddly for a guy who mostly uses guns, this Punisher's hands don't have trigger fingers extended. He can still hold them, at least.
