Action Figure Review: Lady Deadpool from Marvel Legends Series: Deadpool by Hasbro

 Wow! Guess what has happened since my last Deadpool themed review? I have finally seen Deadpool 2! My wife bought it for me for my birthday. It was both pretty hilarious and pretty awesome, so you can say I dig it. Definitely not for the kiddos, though. Of course, the action figures are for anyone and Hasbro released a pretty nice range of Deadpool themed action figures alongside of the film. One of the new characters in the series is Lady Deadpool (I'm pretty sure this is her first Marvel Legends figure, although she has been released in the 1/18th scaled Marvel Universe line), also known as Wanda Wilson from Earth 3010. While it clearly wasn't Lady Deadpool, there is a scene in Deadpool 2 where Deadpool is wearing a blonde wig in order to infiltrate a strip club to assassinate some very bad guys that made me think of Lady Deadpool. I wonder if we'll ever see the Deadpool Corps in a future film? Anyways, not only did Hasbro give us Lady Deadpool here but we also get Headpool. Crazy, right? If you factor in that Lady Deadpool also comes with the right leg for the Sauron build-a-figure then you're really getting 2 1/4 characters. I bought this one loose without the leg, though, and paid well under $10 bucks. If you're willing to forego the BAF pieces and cherry pick here and there you can find some incredible deals. Let's get on with this review and check out Lady Deadpool after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 6 inches tall

Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, swivel thighs, ball jointed hips, ball jointed torso, swivel/ hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, hinged neck, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Two swords, two thigh pouches, Headpool, stand for Headpool, and the right leg for the Sauron build-a-figure.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars

 The Positives:

* If you like the ladies and you like Deadpool, then what is not to like here, right? Lady Deadpool looks to reuse one of the fairly standard Marvel Legends bodies but it has some pretty clean paint lines and lots of extras like a harness and a cool belt to keep Wanda Wilson looking more tactical and ready for combat.

* Lady Deadpool's mask/ headsculpt looks great. Her long ponytail is streaming out the back while her eyes clearly show that she's not happy. Despite not seeing her face, the sculpt on the head definitely shows off a pretty intense expression.

* Hasbro's Marvel Legends line still has some of the best articulation of any mass-market toyline. Her joints looks and feel quite durable and work great! These are fun toys to play with and they hold poses really well. Some of Lady Deadpool's joints were stiff at first but with a bit of time they're starting to work really effortlessly.

 * Not only does Wanda have a cool belt (with lots of pouches!) but she also has two pouches strapped to her thighs. These are removable but they also stay on her thighs remarkably well. They just slip over her feet and then you pull them up.

* While this figure doesn't come with any guns, she does come with two katanas. These look to be the exact same katanas that a few other Marvel Legends Deadpool figures have included. They look fine and aren't brittle, so they get a pass from me.

* Here comes Headpool! He's Wade Wilson from the Marvel Zombies universe and he's just a zombie Deadpool head floating around with the assistance of a beanie-like propeller. The sculpt is excellent and features some cool details like a bunched up mask and some nasty teeth. Also, the little propeller spins!
 * Another cool extra is that Hasbro included a flight stand to allow Headpool to "hover" off the ground. Headpool simply fits over the top of the stand (he has a hole in the base of the head though he can't function as an alternate head on his own, though).

* Remember that if you buy this figure new, you'll also get the right leg of the Sauron build-a-figure. I picked mine up loose, though,
 The Negatives:

* Lady Deadpool's hair has lots of flakes of red on it. Actually, I believe that the hair might be molded in red and is painted blonde, but the blonde paint is chipping off. Can a color be considered blonde? Am I wrong about this?

 * Maybe it's just me but Wanda's head looks like it sits very high up on her neck. Too high, really. It looks a bit odd in some poses.

* Typically Lady Deadpool is depicted as having two sheathes on her harness to stow her katanas. Oddly enough, while most other Deadpool figures have the sheathes Lady Deadpool does not. You can just stick her katanas in her harness but it doesn't work nearly as well.

   While Lady Deadpool does have a few issues, she overall is a pretty Great action figure, especially due to the presence of Headpool. She's fun, well articulated, and you're kind of getting two characters for the price of one. It's always nice to see Hasbro put more characters in the line and Lady Deadpool is a solid choice. She's also double packed in the case so you should be able to find her quite easily. She's a cool figure of a fun character, so why not, right?

  1. I was very close to buying this one but when I looked at it closely in the pack it looked really sloppy. I think I might just be burnt out on the Marvel legends but everytime I pick one up a new legends figure in the store I end up putting it back because of quality control issues .

    1. Other than some paint issues which I've seen on in store figures I haven't had any complaints for the most part. Lady Deadpool definitely does have a few issues but I think they're more minor in the long run. I'm by no means a hardcore Marvel fan but I'm always amazed at what Hasbro is doing with this line. It makes a DC fan like me just hope and dream.
