Sideshow’s Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure: True to the Mouthy MercFebruary 14, 2016
The Sideshow Collectibles Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure is an unequivocal must-have for fans of Marvels iconic merc with a mouth. While a figure based on the newly released Deadpool movie is on the way from Hot Toys later in the year, Sideshow’s current available variant draws inspiration from the comic book pages. The ultra detailed piece is an homage to the storied character that delivers enough on looks, posing options, and accessories to make the gun-toting, blade-wielding, anti-hero proud.
So what makes Sideshows Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure so awesome? For starters, the 12-inch tall collectible arrives sporting the familiar red and black costume of Wade Wilsons lethal alter ego. The meticulously crafted cloth body suit is constructed with multiple textures and boasts a weathered, combat-worn appearance. Slung atop the suit is a faux-leather tactical harness onto which the slew of ammo pouches, sheaths, and scabbards can be fastened. Other elements like the molded gauntlets, boots, as well as knee and shoulder guards complete the same battered look.
As with similar Sideshow collectibles, the Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure is amply articulated with a huge number of joints throughout the upper and lower body. A pair of interchangeable heads (with both standard and winking expressions) and ten swappable hands allow collectors to capture the regenerating ex-special forces soldier in a huge range of poses.
Sideshows Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure truly stands out when it comes to the extras. In addition to his signature pistols and katanas, Deadpool comes packing a combat knife, assault rifle (with removable scope), and a pair of grenades along with a display stand to facilitate dynamic posing. Ensuring the requisite level of fourth wall busting authenticity, the set includes two thin metal rods that can be inserted into holes on the stand to display Deadpool with yellow and white thought bubbles above his head reminiscent of the comics. The accompanying decal sheet with over a dozen familiar aphorisms allows for plenty of customization. In addition, the Sideshow Exclusive version of the figure comes with a ghoulish alternate Headpool head sculpt and an additional metal wire to give it the appearance of floating in the air.
Sideshow Collectibles wildly detailed and shamelessly craveable Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure released in November 2015 at the manufacturers suggested retail price of $229.99 USD.
