Deadpool 2 is upon us. With that, AFJ has compiled a list of awesome Deadpool action figures that you should run out and spend your hard earned money on. Yes, that’s right, you don’t nearly have any figures of the Merc with a Mouth as you think. Full disclosure Junkies, we picked new ones, old ones, and even a pencil holder. Sure it could be an action figure, the action figurehead of Zombie Deadpool! #AFJ4LIFE
DEADPOOL MARVEL LEGENDS WAVE 2 - DEADPOOL
We love this figure. Everything is perfect from his boxer shorts to his bedroom slippers. Thank you, Hasbro for embracing the character. You dipped your toe into the water by including a taco with a previous release, but this is a home run!
DEADPOOL BY S.H.FIGUARTS
We know that there will be at least one Junkie who will complain that we did not include an S.H.Figuarts Deadpool on the list, Junkie, here you go. Ah, we take back the snarky comment as this Deadpool is really cool (officially he is the DEADPOOL 160mm ABS&PVC Amecome Yamaguchi Action figure). We love the number of accessories and details, there may be something to this S.H.Figuarts craze.
MEZCO ONE:12 DEADPOOL SDCC17 EXCLUSIVE
We decided to let our founder, Jarrett Kruse, chime in on his favorite Deadpool that he picked up at Comic-Con. It is also a Deadpool from our Toy Company of the Year (2017), Mezco Toyz.
NECA’S DEADPOOL 1/4 SCALE
We saw this spectacular 18-inch Deadpool at Toy Fair this year. It really has everything that any Deadpool fan would want. There are not only a ton of accessories but the 30 points of articulation, allowing you to do anything. Yes, anything with the Merc.
DEADPOOL AND SCOOTER POP! VINYL VEHICLE
According to Entertainment Earth, this Deadpool and Scooter from Funko arrives in July. For us, it has that right mixture of comic book cool and kitschiness that screams the Merc with a Mouth.
DEADPOOL 8” RETRO FIGURE SET LIMITED EDITION
Diamond Select Toys captured the perfect seventies nostalgia for a character that only came to be in the nineties. You can play dress up with Deadpool as you get three different outfits, two heads, and a ton of weapons. Look out Barbie! FYI, version 2, the pirate themed one, was canceled (seen here).
MARVEL DEADPOOL MEISHO MOVIE REALIZATION
We heard that Ryan Reynolds wants to take Deadpool 3 in a whole new direction. Personally, we are hoping for Deadpool in Feudal Japan. Wait, you doubt that could happen? With Deadpool, anything is a possibility. So we are adding the Meisho figure to the 10 Awesome list to get that idea out there.
GENTLE GIANT STUDIOS DEADPOOL: PENCIL CUP ACCESSORY
From Gentle Giant Studios comes the most expensive Deadpool thingy on our list. Yep, some yahoo on Amazon is charging nearly $600 bucks for one of these. We could probably find one cheaper, but we thought it would be cool to say this is the most expensive item on our list (buy it here if you have money to burn).
MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES 12” ACTION FIGURE DEADPOOL
Did you think it was going to go downhill from the pencil can on? Nope. We took it back to the highest and most affordable level by placing the awesome 12-inch Deadpool from Hasbro on the list. This whole line is actually getting better and better. What we love about the Legend Series 12-inch line is that the price (usually $59.99) keeps them on the shelf longer and makes them easier to find. It will be damn near impossible to walk into a store and get the first one our list, but this guy was easy to allocate.
Leave to the brilliant Mike Fink, one of our members from the closed Action Figure Junkies Facebook Group (join here) to concoct his own Deadpool action figure. Mike took this year’s hottest figure, Playmates’ 2017 Muckman, and placed a Deadpool’s head that actually fit on the body of old Muckman and voilà. Isn’t he mucking fantastic? Thanks to Mike Fink for supplying us with this rendition and the photo.
