Deadpool is the 8th figure in the recent X-men Juggernaut wave. He comes packaged in the standard Legends window box.
Although deadpool is part of the Juggernaut wave, he does not come packaged with a build a figure part. Instead, he comes with a literal arsenal of weapons. Included with Deadpool are two pistols (with waist and thigh holsters), two swords (with back sheath) boot knife with sheath, automatic shotgun, generic sci-fi laser rifle, bazooka with removable boxing glove attachment, alternate unmasked head, and best of all..... a taco. When was the last time a legends figure came with so many accessories it couldn't hold them all at once?
You feel lucky punk?
Deadpool stands just over 6 and 1/4 inches tall.
He scales very well with other legends figures.
All of Deadpools paint apps are nice and sharp. The paint on the unmasked head is particularly good. The eyes and teeth are painted as close to perfect as can be expected and the whole head has a dark wash that gives the decayed flesh a realistic look. The only place where the paint could be better is that black around the eyes, were it isn't quit filled in all the way. Aside from that, his paint apps are some of the best ive seen on a legends figure.
Both face sculpt split the difference between light hearted rogue and stone cold killer.
I love how expressive the hands are. They really bring a lot of attitude to the figure.
Articulation is just above average for a legends figure. He has excellent range in his hips, elbows, and knees. One thing that Deapool has that a lot of other legends dont is forward ankle tilt wich makes crouching or kneeling poses look much more natural.
Did I mention the Bazooka? Because he comes with a bazooka.
Generally my number one gripe with Legends figures are the lack of accessories, and Deadpool has that in spades, which begs an interesting question. Is it worth doing away with build figure parts if it means that we get this many accessories with each figure. For me, its an easy yes.
I only really have two small gripes with the figure. The first being that the bazooka is some what of a pain in the butt to pose with. The arms just can't seem to get into into a position where it looks natural being aimed. I could only really find a few angles where the bazooka actually looked good being held. The second is that Deadpool suffers from "wiggle hips" a common problem with the Legends line. Basically the T-bar inside the lower torso comes un-glued which makes the legs wiggle just a little. It's not a big deal and doesn't affect stability, its just mildly irritating.
In a line of hit or miss releases, Deadpool is a bullseye. This really is Hasbro at its best, and just goes to show what the company is capable of. Deadpool should be an easy purchase for anyone even remotely interested in the figure.
Huge thanks to Siningy for the Deadpool hookup!
