Sideshow Deadpool 1/6th Figure Released! Unboxing Photos!

Everything’s coming up Deadpool! Yesterday I posted my review of the very well-done Hasbro Marvel Infinite Series Deadpool 3 3/4″ figure, which is the only new Deadpool action figure expected to be released at mass retail in advance of this movie’s “Deadpool” movie by Fox. But while it’ll be found mostly online and in specialty stores, there’s one new Wade Wilson collectible just released that blows all the others away! The Sideshow Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure has just started shipping, and the unboxing photos show that this masterpiece was worth the year-plus wait!

Sideshow Collectibles Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure Box Unboxing

Although the 1/6 Deadpool figure was originally not set to begin shipping for an extra couple weeks, Sideshow Collectibles gave a lucky few buyers the chance to have their order billed and shipped a wee bit early last week!

I zoned out and missed my chance to have my Sideshow Deadpool exclusive edition process early, but thankfully, Alfie B. did not, and has given permission for me to post his amazing unboxing photos of this figure! Thanks, Alfie!!

Since this is the first-ever Sideshow Marvel 1/6th scale figure, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the packaging. But the box art for this figure (shown above) is actually really high-quality and fun-looking! This packaging looks really great, and I think it looks every bit as nice as Hot Toys’. Nice work, Sideshow.

Sideshow Deadpool 12 Inch Figure UnboxingOf course, most folks are more interested in what’s in the box than the box itself (except those wacky mint-in-box collectors). Luckily, what’s actually inside of the box looks pretty swell too!

Sideshow Collectibles Deadpool Figure Head Close-UpThe Sideshow 12″ Deadpool comes with two interchangeable head (and neither of them is unmasked–thank God): a serious masked Deadpool head and a more comical variety. I’ll be opting for the comedic “one big eye, one little eye” look myself, but the “hardcore” Wade Wilson head looks very well-sculpted too.

Sideshow Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure Accessories in PackagingBut the alternate head isn’t the only accessory–in fact, this box is basically exploding with weapons and accessories for the Merc with a Mouth!

Aside from the steel grate-like display base figure stand, the box also includes two different types of word balloons (white and yellow), interchangeable hands, swords and sheaths, a dagger, guns and more.

Sideshow 12 Inch Deadpool Hands InterchangeableDeadpool will have quite a few alternate hands to choose from, and I love the whimsical ones like the “victory” sign and the “okay” sign.

12 Inch Deadpool Figure Sideshow Collectibles BazookaOf course, if bladed weapons just aren’t getting the job done, it’s good to know that ol’ Wade has a highly-detailed bazooka to fall back on! I’m surprised Sideshow put so much paint deco on the bazooka–it looks terrific!

Stickers for Deadpool Thought Balloons Sideshow Sixth ScaleThere’s also a whole sheet full of dialogue choices to stick into Deadpool’s word balloons. This is pure awesome, and I love this idea even more than the Kotobukiya dry erase board sign.

Sideshow Exclusive Deadpool Figure with Pistol in HolsterI don’t recall Deadpool ever actually wielding a pistol with his own face on the handle in the comics, but even if it’s not canonical, it looks both stylish and ridiculously fun. The paint wash on the gun and realistic leather texture of the holster balance things out so that the gun comes off as amusing and not ludicrous.

Sideshow Collectibles Deadpool 12 Inch Figure BootsJust like the holster, the boots are made of a realistic-looking leather-like material.

Sideshow Deadpool Exclusive Edition Headpool Close-UpAnd oh yeah–there’s one more thing that I imagine many fans have been itching to see the final production version of: Headpool!

Sideshow Headpool Exclusive Accessory from Deadpool Sixth Scale Figure

The propeller hat-wearing zombie Headpool skull was the exclusive item for early adopters who pre-ordered the Sixth Scale Deadpool figure from the Sideshow Collectibles website. This version has been in the “Sold Out” status for many months, as Headpool is an unusually appealing item selection for an exclusive edition.

From the intricate sculpting on the skeleton-like Headpool head to the crazy amount of paint deco, Headpool is easily the most detailed part of this entire set. I had high hopes for this flying Zombie Deadpool head, and Sideshow didn’t let me down! While Wade himself looks excellent, I’m glad that I ordered early and locked in a Headpool of my very own!

Sideshow Collectibles Deadpool Figure ReviewYou can still get on the Waitlist for the Sideshow Exclusive Deadpool with Headpool set, but this figure seems to be immensely popular, so I’m genuinely not sure how many wait listed orders will get converted. But I’ve had good luck with Sideshow Wait Lists in the past, and if you don’t want to pay an exorbitant amount for Headpool on the aftermarket, the Wait List is the only way to go at this point.

Based off of the unboxing photos showing off the final product, how do you like Sideshow’s first-ever Marvel comics-based 12″ figure, Marvel collectors? Does this killer Deadpool sixth scale figure have a future home in your collection, or are you sticking to Hot Toys’ movie lines?

  1. It looks great, except the red head doesn’t match the red jumpsuit. Any chance Hot Toys will do a movie version?

    • Hot Toys hasn’t announced a Deadpool movie license, and seeing as how Disney is a much more important partner to them than FOX, I honestly don’t expect them to.

      I guess we’ll see in a few months, but it looks doubtful.

  2. Im one of those wacky mint box colllectors… (i like to think of myself as a T. Tivan type collector)
    I was fortunate enough to have ordered the exclusive version in time and now that i have it, im not that excited. I guess it doesnt really matter after today cause ill never look inside and see Wade … Hes imprisoned , doing 5-10.
    Early photos had him wearing a turtle neck under his suit…
    I was hoping the final product would be better. Imo i feel that it just doesnt match… The transition from the neck to the headsculpt looks terrible! Why couldnt they make a real masked head? With actual fabric? A partially unmasked head is a must on 616! WTF , Spidermans mask turned out just fine…
