Unmistakable in his trademark red and black costume, fully sculpted, the glib master assassin is girded for combat with weapons for any occasion. A scaled-down assault rifle and automatic pistol are gripped in his fists. And should the fighting get close and personal, twin katanas are ready at his back. A deadly dagger rests in a leather sheath at one hip, and who knows what surprises are contained in those leather pouches on his belt? Standing at 20 inches in overall height on a base ringed with bullets, the Deadpool Premium Format Figure will make a lasting impression on any collection.

The history of Wade Wilson, the man who would become Deadpool, is as mercurial as the man himself. He's a hyperviolent contract killer with a flair for the bizarre. Overloaded with weapons both edged and ranged as well as a healing factor that makes him practically unkillable, he's an unstoppable opponent with a chronic case of schizophrenia. He's turned his mental illness into a (frequently hilarious) asset, as his subsequent instability translates to a maddening unpredictability.

Initial interactions with Deadpool are frequently met with guarded skepticism, as no one can tell if his presence is that of an asset or an enemy ... or merely that of an irritant. Deadpool dances back and forth across the rules of law with maniacal whimsy. He's been both friend and foe to such heroes as Spider-man, Cable, The Punisher, Wolverine and the X-Men.

Deadpool's twisted conscience is alternately fed and deprived by his schizophrenic nature. Just like all mercenaries, his motivations seem to be entirely financial. As such, he'll perform jobs for both heroes and villains for a price. However, he has frequently left uncashed the checks paid to him by the X-man, Archangel.

Whoever Deadpool is, whatever his motivations, he's a dangerous killing machine with the capriciousness of a psychopath. His abilities with weapons are on a par with such masters as Bullseye and Elektra. He's more than a force to be reckoned with.

Ryan Reynolds better start eating those High Protein Burritos and Chimichangas if he's gonna make the weight to match this perfect Deadpool anatomy in time for Days of Future Past.

Here's hoping for a cameo acknowledging Baraka-Pool in The Wolverine.

@siggisuperman

It probably has interchangeable heads or it's a variant, the statue is sick.

@siggisuperman

Because of the different artist who have drawn him. You'll notice the black parts of the mask are different, as well as the level of detail.

Depends on which style/artist's version you liked best.

@UniBeam, I believe that's his teleportation device.

If frickin Antman is getting a movie, Deadpool, sure as hell is for sinners,
deserves one.

Bring ZombieHead-Pool, c'mon, just do it.

Days of future past could be..and I say could be..if they go balls to the wall and make it a HUGE BLOCKBUSTER...could be the biggest Marvel movie ever.Imagine adding all the characters from all the x-movies(good and bad) for a time jumping mishmash of action...culminating with one new timeline done right with the original x-men as they first appeared. Prolly not though.

it's the same exact pose as another Deadpool statue. Still really good though.
DioFoRio - 10/30/2012, 12:03 PM
I like how the material is strecthcing and bunching ...nice statue

Is Disney gonna buy this, too?
sameoldthing - 10/30/2012, 3:38 PM
Looks cool...glad they didn't design it based on Rob Liefeld art or it would be a sculpted pile of shit.

I'll be ordering that soon. Need to see if sites other than sideshow have it for cheaper first though.

The statue looks great, but it's kind of a dull pose for a character like Deadpool
