The second wave of Marvel Legends Deadpool is arriving on shelves right on the heels of Deadpool 2 on DVD and Blu-ray (https://amzn.to/2wUEi7b) – a big thanks to Hasbro for providing these figures for review. The Sauron Build-a-Figure wave more accurately serves as a transition from Deadpool to the X-Men, in advance of a big movie year for Marvel’s mutants in 2019. The line-up includes three each of Deadpool and X-Men. On the Deadpool side, there’s the titular character in his boxers, another in his X-Men trainee t-shirt, and Lady Deadpool. From the X-Men, it’s villain Omega Red, X-23 in her All New All Different Wolverine costume, and Bishop in his glorious ’90s costume, complete with mullet.
The Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men wave is hitting retailers now. Thanks to Hasbro for providing these figures!
The Apocalypse wave is solid, and a bonus considering that some thought that having a couple of Deadpool waves in a non-X-Men movie year would preclude it. Here’s some quick thoughts on each of the figures:
What do you get when you team a web-slinging superhero with an unpredictable, mouthy mercenary, then toss in some Hydra agents and a couple of super villains, and then let them all loose on the Big Apple? You get a crazy, zany, non-stop action-packed adventure, with the year’s most shocking ending… That’s what you get!!
Don’t believe it? Well, you don’t have to take our word for it – check it out for yourself, true believer!
When the Merc with a Mouth answers a “Help Wanted” ad on the dark web, he suddenly finds himself neck deep in trouble… as usual! Now he must swallow his pride and enlist the aid of Wolverine, Cable and the rest of X-Force, to stop a plot for world domination by a group of evil mutants.
But not to worry true believers – with Deadpool leading the charge, what could possibly go wrong?
Thanos is coming to Earth, and it’s not to visit Disney World. He seeks the one device that can help him achieve his goal of ending all life in the universe… the Ultimate Nullifier! The only thing standing in his way is a handful of Avengers.
Can Earth’s Mightiest Heroes stop Thanos and his evil allies before they eradicate all life as we know it? We hope so, or there won’t be a next issue! So, forge ahead, true believer, and prepare yourself for all-out action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!
