Mezco Toyz has been spacing out the announcements of their San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusives over the past several weeks, and while I was love Thundercats as much as the next guy (okay, probably more than most next guys), it’s the SDCC ONE:12 Collective Marvel exclusive I’ve been really waiting to see. I never had much doubt that it was going to be a Deadpool variant, but at least it turns out to be my favorite one: the SDCC 2017 Exclusive ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool has now been revealed!
And now–it’s Mezco Toyz’ turn to cash in on Deadpool in X-Men costume, as their Marvel SDCC 2017 Exclusive features Deadpool in his most… well, blue… costume.
I love quirky, crazy variants like this one, so I’ve got no problem with this particular figure coming as a niche Comic Con exclusive. I’m glad that Mezco chose this over the Inverse Deadpool (black and red) color scheme, honestly. This is a fan-favorite costume for the character that’s mostly going to only appeal to niche, hardcore fans–exactly what a limited exclusive variant should be.
X-Men Deadpool must be in fashion this year, because DST is also releasing an exclusive Marvel Gallery statue of the character for Comic-Con next month. Yay for solidarity!
And hey, that bright yellow and blue box that this comes in…? Yeah, that is rockin’. If I were going to review this 6″ figure based solely off of how much the box appeals to my zany sensibilities–‘A++’ for sure.
Also, since Mezco Toyz has us in mind with their collector-friendly packaging, there are no twist-ties to untangle and nothing to destroy when removing (and putting back) your Deadpool figure. Man, I love modern toy packaging!
You get a figure stand, the alternate squinting head from the regular version, some interchangeable hands and grenades, a pistol, a machine gun (with grenade launcher chamber), and a sword with sheath. Not a bad haul, mind you, but at the same price as the X-Force version, clearly not as solid of a value. The yellow sword sheath and yellow and blue grenades definitely do make me smile, though.
You can pre-order the ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool SDCC Exclusive figure over at Mezco’s website now while supplies last. The NYCC Shadowland Daredevil sold out at lightspeed last year before the Marvel ONE:12 Collective line had really even begun to pick up steam, so a similar fast sellout for X-Men Deadpool wouldn’t surprise me at all.
What do you think of Mezco’s San Diego Comic Con 2017 ONE:12 Collective Deadpool, Marvel collectors? Is this an exclusive that you were hoping for and plan to order, or did you have something else in mind?
