All Deadpool, all the time - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
All Deadpool, all the time
Today's topic: Merchandise!

Because I happened to be tooling around on Forbidden Planet's website, thanks to cleolinda, and decided to search for Deadpool to see what they've got right now.

I found this.

It's a Deadpool teddy bear. A DEADPOOL TEDDY BEAR. REALLY. O_o

Granted, he's a vinyl plastic teddy bear, so not too cuddly, but still. DEADPOOL. TEDDY BEAR. WHUT.

Speaking of Deadpool collectables, and particularly collectables in the category of OMG I Want It But Would Never Pay That Much For It, we have the Bowen Deadpool.

LOOKIT HOW AWESOME HE IS. 12.5 inches tall and armed to the teeth. You know who would go crazy for him if he was movable and had removable weapons? cleolinda's dolls. Hee.

And on the subject of Deadpool action figures, I haven't actually seen this Marvel Hall of Fame one before. Is it new? I much prefer the Marvel Legends one.

Of course, the one I really want right now, because it's at least in the range of being affordable, is Tiny Cheesecake-Pose Deadpool (such a cheesecake pose!) who's sold with the clown-slayer-Deadpool issue of Cable & Deadpool (which I also love). They were selling this series at London's Forbidden Planet store when I was there in August, but they were out of Deadpool (in retrospect, I at least should have bought Cable, since they had him. Oh well).

On the other hand, I would NOT be averse to Captain America Deadpool, solely because on this version Deadpool is wearing Cap's TEENY WINGS! Hee.

On the third hand, I'm not really sure how I feel about Punisher Deadpool. I mean, he looks really cool, with the black and white, but...I dunno, it's not canon! I'm so silly.


In other Deadpool things, I haven't read the issue yet, but The Deadpool Bugle has collected some reviews of Issue #3.

When I get some time maybe I'll share some of my thoughts on the series so far with the 3 people on here who might want to hear them. *g* But for now I'll say...I was definitely anti-Way before the issues came out, and now I'm...fence-sitting. The first two issues were way (u see whut I did thar?) better than expected, but then again...he's still using Pool-o-vision. Old-skool Deadpool is embarrassed. He wants his dignity back, thanks.

And regarding old-skool Deadpool, actually - I'm not sure what this is, but could it be the next TPB in the Deadpool TPB group? I know there have been mentions that they'll finally start collecting Joe Kelly's run soon. (YAY.) Hrm...


And finally, in non-Deadpool comics stuff, you know what else is awesome? This Rorschach bust. It's a thing of beauty. Also? The mask and gun. It's a butterfly! A butterfly!

ETA: A discussion of Sculpted Deadpool's...impressive endowment. Don't miss this picture, the caption of which killed me ded.

Insane Nemesis of ETA: New I'm a Marvel, I'm a DC parody up!!

Is it shameful to admit that I ship ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's versions of Batman and Spider-man? Not as a couple. But as an awesome team of kick-ass superhero and slightly clueless do-gooder. LOVE.

As for the Teddy Bear thing, that has been listed as "coming soon" for at least 2 years now. I've had my eye on that for years now, but nothing has changed.
I actually saw some of the first wave ones at a comic shop recently. It just makes me want a Deadpool one more.

That Deadpool book is essentially the British release of Deadpool Classic Volume 1. Actually, it only collects the first two minis, The Circle Chase and Sins of the Past. Deadpool Classic Vol 2 won't be out until next year, and there hasn't been any word on what it collects, but I'm hoping it is at least some of Kelly's run. (I own all the issues, but still, I want it in book form)

Ah-hah. I saw that the bear was "coming soon" and wondered if it would ever see the light of day, but I figured I'd post it because I'd never seen it before. (Are the bears squishy or hard, or what? I couldn't tell from the website...)

If it never comes out, I can just rest assured that I'll be the envy of all my friends (or whichever ones ♥ Deadpool) when I finally get around to making the Deadpool doll. :)

Oh, it's not DPC Vol 2? SAD. I saw the British version of Classic 1 when I was over there, and I remember it did have a different cover. I hope they do come out with Kelly's stuff soon. I don't know that I can afford to collect the TPBs (since I already have the whole run in issues) but I do own DP Classic #1 because it was as cheap to get the whole book as to buy the 1 issue of New Mutants. *rolls eyes*

I really, REALLY want tiny lead cheesecake-pose Deadpool. They had a bunch of those figures at Forbidden Planet in London in August, but not the Deadpool one (they did have Cable but I didn't buy it...).

God, Bowen Deadpool is gorgeous. *wants* Expensive like woah, but gorgeous. <3 (And Shiny!)

While I don't like the design of the teddy bear too much, the fact that it exists is still quite, quite awesome. ;D

I'd be very interested to hear your opinion about the new DP run so far, if you've got the time to write about it sometime.

(Oh, and friend!shipping is never shameful. :) Yay for awesome random team-ups. This version of Spider-man really is such a lost puppy, it's adorable, and Batman is.. Batman. xD Also, I really kind of love the Green Goblin here. Heeh. )

I KNOW. I want the Bowen Deadpool so, so much.

Yeah, the bear isn't too exciting to me. Anyway, I am so going to make the doll, which will be better than anything, ever.

After I get over to pick up #3 from the store I'll do my thoughts on the story arc. :)

I know, right? Gobby is hilarious. I love when he sees the Joker at Harley's and goes, "HarLEEEEEN!" all betrayed and stuff. Hee!
