It Came from the Toy Chest: Bennifer Edition.

Whoa... are we in 2003? Spike! Roll the Evanescence video...

If you are having visions of a bad Ben Affleck Movie, my job is done... I am referring to Daredevil and Elektra from the SP//DR wave. I already reviewed SP//DR, so let's taxckle the characters.
Matt Murdock, Blind Lawyer but has super senses... Don't fart near him... he'll know. He's also the Vigilante of Hell's Kitchen... I mean Clinton area of Manhattan.

Electric Nachos is an assassin who had a thing with Matt Murdock. She also helped the Vertically Challenged Angry Stabby Canadian to regain his humanity.

Daredevil seems to be on the Cyclops body (ratcheting shoulders and all.) with different forearms... Iron Fist, maybe? This means that Anything Scott could do, Daredevil does.

Elektra is using a female buck that is NOT Psylocke's, but the range of motion is similar to Betsy. I thought that with both of them being Ninja, that they'd reuse bodies.
 Paint and Sculpt:
I already mentioned that Matt is reusing Cyclop's body, so we KNOW what to expect from the body. I can't locate the boots. Might be a Captain America or Winter Soldier. Not truly sure.
The laces is where the paint failed. They tried to give it sone shading, but it looks a bit sloppy.

Elektra's body seems to be recent... and a huge improvement over previous Hasbro and ToyBiz Elektras. Like them her wraps are painted on and look a bit Meh...

Both come with a BAF Piece.
Matt comes with his billy club in "Grappling nunchuck mode" extra boxing hands
Elektra comes with 2 Sai.

Daredevil gets a 4.0 as his final score. It's Decent, but it feels like he needed a bit more oomph!

Elektra gets a 3.83 as her final score. Maybe if she had gotten an extra head OR the overused Katana, maybe she would've fared a bit better...
