I read a few old and recent Deadpool comics so I kinda know this character. He gained more popularity being playable in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Then he got his own video game and movie. So now I'm gonna review his action figure. But this Deadpool action figure that I got is unusual. It's an unofficial Marvel figure from "Fire Toy", an unknown toy company. The reason I chose this one because it's a cool looking and random figure. I found this toy while walking around the mall. Oh, he also have two color variations: white (X-force) and gold.
The front and back of the box.
"Hellooo.. Hey! Somebody?"
The box is presentable and have a nice size. The front shows a large cool artwork of Deadpool, Chinese letterings and Fire Toy logo. The back shows the same lettering again, only larger with Deadpool's logo. No product shots of the figure. The left and right side of the box shows another Deadpool artwork. The top shows a large Marvel logo with its website. The box have the impression of being legit.
|This is what's in the box.|
"Hey, guy! Get me outta here!"
|Deadpool out of the box!|
"Now it's time to... what!? Pose for photos? I didn't know I'm modeling today."
This looks pretty impressive for an unlicensed figure. Great sculpt and detail, pretty good paint work and overall great presentation. This 10-inch action figure looks like a Play Arts Kai figure at first glance.
|Deadpool at four sides.|
"Actually, they're my shadow clones!"
"Mugshot? That sound's villainous. I prefer profile shots."
|The back of Deadpool's head.|
"Not only I look good in front but also at the back!"
|The red and black suit and bandolier.|
"I'm so awesome, I got two different logos!"
|The back of the bandolier can hold the sword sheaths.|
"Ooohh... look at that sexy back."
|The arms looks great, the wrist pads adds more detail.|
"I know right!"
"Look! I got long legs."
The gun holster and the knife sheath.
"Yeah, I keep my little toys there."
The right leg have the gun holster for the handgun. Securing the gun to the holster is simple, just slide the "tongue" of the cover into the hole under the Deadpool logo. The left leg have a knife sheath.
|The cool boots.|
"If you wanna know, those boots are custom made for combat... and wrestling."
|The bottom of the boots.|
"In addition to combat and wrestling, the boots are also intended to make faces look like waffles."
Deadpool have decent amount of accessories. He got his two katanas with sword sheaths, a handgun and a knife. He also got two gripping hands for the katanas and a trigger hand for the handgun.
"They're... beautiful! *starry eyes*"
|Those katanas looks cool.|
"It's cool because their owner is COOL."
|The sheaths for the katanas.|
"It's always a sad time when I sheath my katanas."
|Looks like a magnum.|
"When I'm bored, I use that gun to draw smiley faces on some wanted posters."
|The golden knife.|
"Yeah, those were made from the gold that I "confiscated" when we raided the Paguros."
|The katanas secured at Deadpool's back.|
"Oh! Hey there!"
The handgun and the knife securely kept at their respective holster and sheath.
"My hand always itches to get those babies out of their cages."
The gun holster and the knife sheath really secures the two weapons. They wont fall off anytime soon.
|Twin katanas equipped.|
"What? No! I was just going to... uhh cook. Yeah that it"
|Holding the handgun.|
"This is THE EQUALIZER."
Deadpool didn't come with a display stand. He can stand on his own anyway.
"I'm gonna put some cap on some evil dudes!"
|Deadpool holds the knife.|
"See this little shanker? Looks cool huh?"
|He's ready for sword combat.|
"Slicey dicey time!"
|Deadpool is good at sword combat.|
"What do you mean good? I'm godlike!"
|The heroic pose.|
"Time to save the day... In a rough, dirty and ugly way."
|More sword combat poses.|
"Who wants some!?"
|Deadpool... Are you drunk or something?|
"Nope. This is my victory pose *hic*!"
This is the only Fire Toy figure, others are just color variants of Deadpool, so I can't compare this guy to other figs except with my Play Arts Kai figures.
|Deadpool with a Judge Magister, Viera and Prince.|
"Awww, I want to stand next to the bunny girl!"
|Deadpool with the AVALANCHE team.|
"You know, we can have a team up with MY team, the Thunderbolts."
|Deadpool with the colorful crew.|
"I know why you're called colorful crew. You guys look like little kids that likes to color things!"
|A multiverse of characters.|
"Hey Raiden, I saw the vid on YouTube where you destroyed Wolverine."
|Deadpool with Catwoman and Hatsune Miku.|
"Two babes!? Now we're talking! Hey Miku, how old are you..? 16!? Paaass!"
As you can see in the scaling comparison, Deadpool can easily blend in with the Play Arts Kai figures. It makes me want to get a Deathstroke PAK ASAP.
No problems on this toy. Surprisingly for an unofficial action figure made by unknown toy company, this toy is built properly. The paint application is weak though, they easily chip/scratch off and some small parts are unpainted.
I don't know if this Deadpool fig is bootleg or authentic given his unlicensed nature. There are really bad knockoffs of this figure that I also found in the same store where I bought this. Still, the toy looks great and highly detailed. It lacks articulation but it got a nice amount of accessories. This toy is really hot, its prices on eBay or similar sites is either low or extremely high. I'm lucky to find one that's only Php.1,800.00 (around $40.00). This is a great placeholder while I wait for the Variant PAK version of Deadpool. If "Fire Toy" is a starting/underground toy company, then I would like to see them to go topside and make more better and cheap 10 inch action figures and give a certain company a run for its money... *cough* SQEX *cough*!
Cheers and Happy Collecting!
