Hasbro played some surprise cards at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 when they revealed Marvel Legends figures of two rather obscure Deadpool variants: Symbiote Deadpool and Weapon X (Inverse) Deadpool! As with all good things, we had to wait a bit, but these obscure Wade Wilson variants are now arriving exclusively at GameStop!
Thanks to the handy-dandy GameStop Store Locator function on their website, I knew exactly where I needed to go to get my snapshots. Thanks, GameStop!
The accessories (including the sweet alternate head and lightsaber) are exactly as we’d seen at conventions during the summer—which is terrific, because this figure comes with some awesome accessories.
The Marvel Legends 12” Weapon X Deadpool figure has actually been arriving in many GameStop locations for over a month now, but this was my first time having the opportunity to see and photograph it in-person.
As expected, the actual figure and accessories for this Weapon X Version are all 100% recycled from the regular release—the only thing that’s fresh here is the paint deco.
I’ve been all-in with the 12” Marvel Legends series up until now, but this is actually the straw that’s breaking my completist tendencies for this series.
While I don’t mind having a little $10 Funko POP Inverse Deadpool, I just don’t need a $50 giant action figure of Wade in such an obscure, mainstream-unrecognizable costume. And frankly, I think the costume just looks bad on this figure.
The Gamestop Exclusive Marvel Legends 6” Back in Black Deadpool and 12” Weapon X variant are now appearing in stores across the United States. You can use the Store Locator on the GameStop website to see which local stores near you have one in stock (and even reserve them!).
Now that they’re officially out in the wild and many of you have seen them first-hand, how do you like the latest pair of Hasbro Deadpool action figures? Are either of these obscure variants bound for your collection, or are you saving your space (and dollars) for more iconic versions?
