With the Fox acquisition from Disney, Hasbro is now free to make more merchandise for X-Men and Fantastic Four characters. What’s interesting is, they’ve just revealed their next big Marvel Legends replica—Deadpool’s severed talking head.
Here’s a look at the Deadpool Premium Interactive Head:
It also comes with this official description:
From the jerks who brought you Marvel Legends, including that shiny, expensive glove, a bunch of helmets with glowing eyes (oooOoooOhhh!) and a ton of Build-A-Figure pieces that you’ll step on one day, comes the premium, interactive, app-enhanced, Deadpool’s Head. Features over 600 lines of content that are absolutely not guaranteed to be funny, because is anything in life really guaranteed? But we tried. We really, really tried. A bunch of comic book writers, editors, stand-up comedians, and hacks from Hasbro worked as hard as they possibly could to make you laugh. So we hope you laugh. WE NEED THIS, OKAY? Ahem, anyway. It’s definitely a head that looks like Deadpool’s head, though, if Deadpool were a real person with a head.
The head will run for $99.99 and looks to be Hasbro’s next step into animatronic collectibles after their interactive Baby Yoda. What’s great is, not only does the head talk, but it’s fully expressive and you can see Wade change moods depending on what the user sets him up to do. No confirmation though on whether the voice is provided by Ryan Reynolds.
I’ll admit, this is one neat idea from Hasbro. While Deadpool comes with his own props like guns with his logo or his ‘Bea Arthur’ swords, this is one item that’s completely on-brand for a character like Deadpool. Hopefully we get a video soon showing us what the head is like in action.
