A while back Sideshow Collectibles was super kind enough to send me one of their 1:6 Scale Deadpool Figures to review, and I’m embarrassed to say that just now am I getting around to posting anything about it. Why? Well, let’s just say things have been in a constant state of flux for me in virtually every aspect of my life, and some days I don’t know which end is up (which makes it really hard to go to the bathroom sometimes). But…excuses aside, I should always find time for these awesome toys, so here is my super-quick and dirty review of the 1:6 Scale DeadPool by Sideshow Collectibles.
Honestly, this is one of the most fun 1:6 scale figures I’ve had the fortune of laying my hands on. Two interchangeable heads, ten hands including classics like the peace sign, thumbs up, and the A-OK (hipster Deadpool was doing this long before the memes), and a slew of accessories, giving the collector countless fun and exciting display possibilities. You’ve got swords, you’ve got grenades, guns, you’ve got nukes, you’ve got knives, sharp sticks…….sorry, just went a little Private Hudson for a second there. Plenty of weapon options to further enhance that displayability. And pouches…my god, the pouches. The pic you see with Mr. Pool on his display stand already have the pouches attached, but be prepared to take a few extra minutes to get all these little buggers on right. The pouches and bladed weapons are actually where I place one of only two complaints I have with the figure – there are some very small slip tabs that are used to slide these onto the belt, harness, etc., and two of them easily detached from the pieces while I was implementing them. Minor thing, easily fixed, but a nuisance none the less. The only other complaint I have – and not one 1:6 collectors are unfamiliar with anymore – is minimal flexibility in the legs. The figure has 30+ points of articulation, but with the outfit and boots, you’re not going to get a lot of dynamic poses that don’t involve Deadpool standing.
So there you go. Now that I’ve bored you with those obnoxious things called words, here are a few pics for your enjoyment. If you’re looking to add Deadpool to your collection, it is currently available on the Sideshow site.
