To get it out of the way: THE HEAD IS LARGE! THE BODY IS SKINNY! TOO SMALL! There, whew, I feel better. Now let’s talk about the Marvel Legends 12-inch Deadpool!
Taking the obvious downfalls of the figure into account, namely the big noggin and scrawny frame, I do like it. Deadpool has been drawn so many ways at this point that even the Funko offerings sometimes look comic accurate to me. I think of this figure as having kind of an animated look to it, skewing to cartoony. Perhaps way cartoony. But still Wade. The build quality is nice and while I do kind of have a problem with the guns I can still look at them and think “Deadpool is just the kind of crazy bastard to jump into a gunfight with a Nerf gun.” So really, I’m good with those too, when it comes down to it. Am I being a Deadpool and/or Hasbro apologist in saying that? I don’t feel I am but this is the internet, I’m sure plenty of other people will think otherwise.
And that’s absolutely okay. You can hate the figure or you can love it, that’s completely up to you. I point out the negatives and still, at the end of the day, I’m good with it. The world keeps turning. We’ll be okay. I promise.
