Each week we take a close look at a comic book collectible. That means taking it out of the box. Deadpool is everywhere these days. Now he can even be in your home. Sideshow Collectibles has a 1/6 scale figure available on their website. If you're still riding high after watching the Deadpool movie, you might want to add this to your collection.
We did do a quick but different unboxing video last week (on GameSpot). If you missed it, check it out here:
The 1/6 scale figures always come in nice boxes. This one has an image of Deadpool on the back and his logo on the sides and inner artwork. Of course if you're buying the figure, you'll want to take it out of the box!
The figure, like many Sideshow Collectibles figures, comes with a lot of accessories and interchangeable hands to help show off Deadpool's personality. There's plenty of detail in the stitching in the costume.
Deadpool doesn't just use guns. He also likes using swords.
Swords or guns? Decisions, decisions...
Deadpool likes both guns and swords.
This Deadpool figure comes with two different heads. You'll have to decide what sort of mood Deadpool is in when you put him on display.
Even though he's a pretty goofy character, he still looks intimidating.
You can see, even with all his weapons, Deadpool can still look like the fun-loving guy he is.
Because Deadpool talks a lot and is known for breaking the fourth wall, he comes with two word balloons and different phrases you can put on them. They hook onto the base of the stand that comes with the figure.
Here you can see him with one of the phrases, "Pouches!" Why pouches? You can see Deadpool has a few on his costume.
Here's a closer look at some of his pouches.
The figure comes with so many pouches, I wasn't even sure where to put them all. You can easily attach them wherever you'd like. You can also see the other hands he comes with.
The stand is simple, but looks fitting for a character like Deadpool. You have to admire the detail on his boots.
The knife sheath can also be hooked anywhere. The knife comes out too for another weapon you can position him with.
His swords nicely fit on his back.
The guns also easily fit into side holsters. There's a tiny magnet to keep the strap 'closed.'
Deadpool also comes with a nice really big gun. It almost looks like a gun his buddy, Cable, would like to use. If you want, you can have him hold it with two hands for more positioning options.
Uhm, we're not really sure what Deadpool is doing here...
Deadpool can easily hold his accessories too. Of course Deadpool has Deadpool-grenades.
Deadpool has two hands so why not two swords?
The figure is now available. You can order it today from Sideshow Collectibles' website.
It'll cost you $229.99. Chimichangas not included.
If you haven't already had too much Deadpool, it's a cool figure to add to your collection. There's so much you can do with it. You have so many options with all the accessories.
There's also a Deadpool giveaway contest at Sideshow. Ends on February 28. Check out the info HERE.
