So we told you earlier about this rad Deadpool Retro Figure and now it just went up for pre-order. We all know by now about the secret little toy war, so don’t plan on toys for Fox owned Marvel movies. This figure looks to hit shelves at the same time as the Deadpool movie is released, so Marvel seems to be ok with using this movie to promote its stuff unlike the Fantastic Four (or visa versa). This in mind, and the fact that Deadpool figures are already few and far between, it would not hurt to get in line where ever you can.
Deadpool is the fifth in Diamond Select’s little 8-inch retro line. The cool thing about the series is the costumes are inter changeable if you are like me and take things out of the box. I wouldn’t fault you for leaving these in the box however. The figure and costumes are packaged great for display. Part of me wants to dress Deadpool as Spider-Man like in his comic annual a while back, and part of me want to put it proudly on display with my other figures trapped in their boxes.
The full list of 8-inch retro sets available are:
Deadpool Limited Edition 8-Inch Retro Action Figure Set
Captain America Limited Edition Retro 8-Inch Action Figure Set
Spider-Man Limited Edition 8-Inch Retro Action Figure Set
Wolverine Limited Edition 8-Inch Retro Action Figure Set
Thor Limited Edition 8-Inch Retro Action Figure Set
I tend to take the word “Limited Edition” on packaging these days as serious as I do “KISS Final Farewell Tour…”
