SDCC 2016 Part 2: Marvel Variant Play Arts Kai Figures


New Marvel Variant PAK gray prototype figures are displayed on this year's San Diego Comic Con! Deadpool and Wolverine. Finally we got a glimpse on their Variant versions. I was hoping to see a variant Wolverine ever since the first wave of Marvel VPAKs, but I didn't expect SQEX will also make Deadpool as well.

Fully loaded Deadpool
Let's go with Deadpool first. I don't know, but he looks like Deathstroke. He's armored and it seems that he's not wearing a skin-tight suit, I guess for the design consistency with the rest of Marvel VPAKs. He also looks more serious in this version. But still, I can't wait to see this one painted.

Deadpool comes with two alternative heads (one "eyebrow" raised and one "smirking" look), one big gun, a knife and a total of 10 extra hands (total accessory quantity still unconfirmed).

Looking sharp Wolverine!
Wolverine looks bad ass! He's armored-up too like Deadpool and the majority of Marvel VPAKs (Captain America and Black Widow). I would like to see this one painted too to see more details. He looks tall here, I expect the final mass production version is shorter, around 9 or 9.5 inches.

Wolverine comes with an alternative head (screaming/berserk mode), a katana, pair of claw hands, pair of one large blade hands, and five extra claw-less hands (total accessory quantity still unconfirmed).

These two are healthy additions to the Marvel VPAK collection. I think Marvel VPAKs are doing better than DC VPAKs this year. I'm looking forward to see more Marvel Variants. SQEX, surprise me.

Cheers and Happy Collecting!
