Deadpool is packaged in the standard S.H. Figuarts box, with movie inspired artwork along with images of the figure on the sides and back. Inside, he is packaged in a plastic tray, along with his accessories for safe keeping, and there’s a sheet of instructions behind the diorama backing.
Deadpool comes in his red and black costume, which is a darker red compared to the first release, and given a black wash. The costume comes with sculpted textures and details on the red parts of the outfit, which gives it a realistic high-end look. Around his waist is a brown belt, a Deadpool logo belt buckle, pouches all around and metallic silver belt buckles and buttons. There’s also a harness on his chest, with a black strap and shoulder pad, a strap with pouches on his right leg, knee pads, a sheath for the knife on his left leg, and all of the great detail and articulation that you’re use to seeing in S.H. Figuarts. The hips also have pads with holes that the holsters that the pistols are stored in. There is also a sheath for the knife that can be placed on the right ankle, which replaces the one that’s already there.
Included are a large assortment of interchangeable parts, including 8 additional sets of interchangeable hands (assortment including open grip, closed fisted, thumbs up and various other options), 3 additional sets of interchangeable eyes, a tool to swap out the eyes from the head, a knife and holster, an additional knife that is non-removable from the holster, Scabbard (sheath for the swords) with 2 hilts that are removable, and 2 Katana’s. He also comes with three sets of pistols, including one set he can hold and place in the holsters, smoking effect pistols, and firing effect pistols.
Deadpool also features all of the articulation that you’ll be used too in the S.H. Figuarts line. Including a ball jointed head, butterfly shoulders, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso x2 (top and bottom), ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, swivel-hinged and rocker ankles and hinged toes.
Overall, Deadpool is phenomenal and a great representation of his movie appearance that you need to own. The suit is amazingly detailed with some great sculpting, especially in the belt, and the interchangeable parts, including the eyes make this a lot of fun to pose and display. This is a Deadpool figure that you need to own!
