If there’s one Marvel character (not named Iron Man) that’s getting plenty of merchandising love in 2013, it’s Deadpool. Funko has been particularly infatuated with Deadpool this year, as so far they have released nine variants of the Funko Deadpool POP! Vinyl figure already. And hey, once there’s that many variants, might as well throw in another and make it an even ten, right? So coming our way next month, it’s the Funko SDCC 2013 Metallic Deadpool POP Vinyl!
It’s worth noting that this Funko Metallic Deadpool POP! Vinyl is limited to just 480 pieces produced, making it the most limited of all eight Deadpool Funko Vinyl Bobble-heads. The regular Deadpool and Hot Topic Exclusive X-Force Deadpool were both open/mass editions (as are the Previews Unmasked variants), while there were 1500-2500 produced each of the Orange/Blue X-Men Deadpool, Inverse Deadpool, Red Glow In-The-Dark Deadpool, and Black and White Deadpool. The Glow-In-The-Dark Black & White Deadpool vinyl was previously the lowest edition size at 500, but Metallic Deadpool will be a mite smaller with its 480 piece limited edition.
Personally, I thought I was all Deadpooled Out at this point, but the 2013 SDCC Metallic Deadpool ends up being perhaps the slickest and coolest looking of all the Deadpool variants! If I’m able to get my hands on this Funko Marvel POP! Metallic Deadpool for his $15 retail price at San Diego Comic-Con, I definitely think I’ll be adding him to my collection (he can sit next to the awesome Marvel Universe Deadpool Taco Truck).
If you’re lucky, you can pick up the Metallic Deadpool Funko POP! Vinyl exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con next month for $15 at the Funko booth.
