Best part of the bazooka

I love that the boxing glove has the universal wrist joint, so you could in theory swap in other Marvel Legends hands as ammunition. So yes, he can launch Wolverine's clawed hand at someone.

Deadpool looks great

I collected all of the early waves of Legends figures (before the rebrand years ago), but have only picked up a few here and there since. Not a huge Deadpool fan, but this is a stellar figure. I'll have to keep an eye out for him.

Agree that accessories are great, but making a great individual figure isn't what the BAF scheme is all about. So making it a value decision isn't really applicable. BAF gets people to buy the junk figures in each wave rather than cherry pick their favorites. From a business standpoint, it's rather ingenious.

Maybe less junk

Well, the obvious response there is that they need to make less junk figures. I mean, even "B" characters can make great figures they put a little thought into and include some nice accessories.

Maybe "junk" is a poor word

Maybe "junk" is a poor word choice on my part. I didn't mean to imply poor quality. I love some of the braver "B" character choices they've made over the years. But they're still "B" characters--the ones that are less popular and therefore will clog the pegs. BAF helps reduce that. And I guess I prefer that to an Iron Man and Captain America redeco in every single wave. Ideally, they'd just short-pack the more obscure characters, but then collectors would complain since everybody knows nothing sells a figure like "rare". LOL

It would be awesome if every single figure was stellar, but that's unrealistic (accessories or no).

"Deadpool should be an easy purchase"

Yes. He should be an easy purchase. But I can't find the damn guy any where.

The word is that Hasbro will

The word is that Hasbro will be shipping full cases of him to retailers in October the way they did with Black Panther.
