GameStop Marvel Legends Deadpool Exclusives Released!

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!

Marvel Legends Back in Black Deadpool Released

I ordered the Back in Black Deadpool Marvel Legends 6” figure over a month ago online, and while I finally got the shipping confirmation for him on Friday, I lost patience and decided to hunt him down and take some in-person photos of him yesterday.

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!

Back in Black Deadpool Box Back Marvel LegendsI’ve seen this figure packaged before at HasCon (and posted a bunch of packaged photos of him then as well), so there were no surprises for me seeing the Back in Black Deadpool ML figure in person.

Side View of Marvel Legends Deadpool Back in Black Exclusive BoxI’m glad my own Deadpool Back in Black figure wasn’t the one I saw at GameStop, though—the paint was really sloppy, and the white running onto the black on the face really bugged me.

12" Marvel Legends Weapon X Deadpool Figure PackagedThe 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.

Initially Hasbro said that this figure would be available everywhere, but then it was announced that Gamestop would get an exclusive early release. I’ll be curious to see if mass retail actually does pick this version up eventually.

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.

Weapon X Deadpool 12" Figure Close-UpThe 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?

GameStop Marvel Legends Deadpool Exclusives Released! — 6 Comments

  1. I see myself leaning towards getting the 6 inch figure next time I swing by GameStop IF they have one. If they don’t, I won’t fret over it or try to hunt one down. If I see the 12 inch figure in the store, I’ll probably look away and start walking. Less than zero interest. There’s a possibility I wouldn’t even take one for free. Or I might accept it and then give it away as a gift to someone who remotely cares.

  2. Look – these are EXCLUSIVES! Marvel Legends that are not in wide circulation. Once they’re gone – they’re gone – unless you get them on Ebay at some stupid high price. I remember when the ML Mohawk Storm fig came out. I just blew her off and didn’t get it. NOW SHE’S ON EBAY FOR OVER $100 BUCKS! AND YOU CAN’T FIND HER ANYWHERE ELSE. WHEN YOU SEE EXCLUSIVE MARVEL LEGENDS – GET THEM WHEN YOU CAN!!

    • I remember picking up the mohawk Storm at my nearest TRU and paid $19.99. I found another one at a TRU 30 miles away that charged $22.99, and I was complaining to myself about the ripoff price, but lucky for me I bought it anyways. 🙂

  3. I really like the 12” figure and I hate Deadpool as a character. It’s the only 12” ML I don’t own (regular DP). But like Cedric said…exclusive is an exclusive so I would buy this.
