On the way to the airport for my trip home I️ decided to kill some time and stop by GameStop. To my surprise there was not one, but two Back in Black Deadpool figures on the shelf. I️ grabbed one but had to wait until I️ got back to take some quick pics.
Overall he’s a great Deadpool figure to add to your Marvel Legends collection. Out of the package, you get an alternate venomized head, three extra hands, tentacles, and two purple katanas. You get great possibility with a few loose joints here and there. More on that later. There are complaints that the alternate head doesn’t fit and the tentacles don’t hold anything. My vemomized head went on no problem, so there should be no worries there. As far as the tentacles holding the swords. While limited, there are a few different ways you can get them to stay in. One problem my particular figure has is a very loose right wrist on the sword grabbing hand. So loose, the only pose I️ could get was of him holding it above his head. ️
Another small gripe is there is nothing for him to put his katanas in. I understand the cost aspect but the hole in his back for his tentacles makes an easy swap.
Overall, it’s a great figure for the price. That said, he is currently on sale online and in stock.
Hasbro released the press photos for the new Stat Wars figures they revealed this morning at NYCC. They revealed some new 3.75-in Force Link figures and 6-in Black Series that got great reviews from people in attendance. Check out the press photos below. (more…)
Hasbro has been sketchy with wave 2 but it looks like there is hope for a second chance. Once thought to have ended production, it looks like Hasbro is reconsidering. This comes after most people’s preorders were cancelled. Word on the street is Hasbro will make another production run if there is a big enough preorder. Maybe Entertainment Earth is big enough to pull that off. Get your preorder in now. There’s no harm in trying, worse case it gets cancelled and you won’t get charged.
Save the date. The HASCON Exclusive Marvel Legends X-Force Deadpool will be available on Sept 20th. The exact time we aren’t sure of. Here’s the link to the product page. Also, there is an obvious limit of one per person. (more…)
