Preview Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Comics Classic Punisher Premium Format Figure

Born Francis Castiglione, an Italian Catholic in New York City, Frank Castle is a former U.S. Marine Captain, extensively trained in special forces and combat techniques. Shortly after a tour in Vietnam, Castle, his wife Maria, and their children were in New York's Central Park for an afternoon picnic when they witnessed a Mafia gangland execution. Seeking to eliminate all witnesses, the Costa crime family murdered them on the spot. Frank survived, and was able to identify all of the shooters, but the police were too deeply tied into the powerful Costa family to provide any justice. When they refused to help, Castle decided to take matters into his own hands. He emblazoned his body armor with the symbol of death's head and exacted his revenge. Since then he has waged a ruthless one-man war on crime, calling himself the Punisher.

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Punisher Premium Format Figure. Frank Castle comes ready to wage his relentless one-man war on crime, in his traditional classic costume. Marvel Comics' vigilante 'anti-hero' is armed for vengeance with a fully automatic shotgun and holstered pistol. He wears a set of brass knuckles for close quarters combat, and in a bind, there's a concealed trench blade strapped to his boot. The Punisher Premium Format figure is an outstanding addition to any Marvel collection.

The Punisher Premium Format Figure features: Automatic Shotgun, Fabric Costume (Classic Comic Design), Simulated Leather Harness with Pouches and Holster. Sideshow Exclusive: Interchangeable Left Hand with Trench Knife and Swap Out Sheath
