I’ve always loved Deadpool and couldn’t wait to see this brought to the big screen, although I must say I was very concerned given the hit and miss nature of Hard R rated comic book adaptions, but I have to say this was totally unfounded and I found myself loving very second of his adventures on screen and seeing that it’s already passed the $250 million mark in the states it seems i’m not alone!
So let’s turn our attention to the merchandise and all the Deadpool wonderfulness that has been and is being released over the next 6 months!
Sit back and view our guide to the very best Deadpool toys for 2016 that every fan needs to see!
1. Sideshow 1/6 Scale Deadpool Figure
If Sideshow or Hot Toys brings out a figure it nearly always end’s up on my list of must-buys and with the Deadpool 1/6 scale figure they have really done a fantastic job!
The attention to detail is crazy and really is the one collectible to get if your a real fan! It’s an 11.8 inch figure that says numerous phrases, but the real draw of this baby is the fact that it’s fully articulated. He’s depicted in his iconic red and black costume, and he comes with long and short weapons, two pistols, an assault rifle, and Big Boomin’ Balls. The over-the-top attention to detail captures the over-the-top personality of everyone’s favorite mercenary.

2. Kotobukiya Deadpool Marvel Now ArtFX Statue
Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe, the same master craftsman behind The Avengers Marvel Now! series, Deadpool stands 6-inches tall (1:10th scale) in his deep crouch with perfect stability on his included magnetic display base. Deadpool is of course awesome all on his own, but he also works great with teams and looks fantastic alongside the Avengers and other upcoming Marvel ArtFX+ statues from Kotobukiya!

4. Deadpool Wacky Wobbler
Just from where I sit in my office I can see at least 10 wacky Wobblers on colleagues desks so the new Deadpool Wacky Wobbler just needs to get added to the pile!
This Deadpool Wacky Wobbler stands 7.5 inches tall. He’s giving you a thumbs up, all-the-while nodding his head repeatedly, as if to reassure you that you’re a cool guy. What has one thumb and is the coolest guy in the universe? This guy. The figure is on a stand.
