Lady Deadpool

May 17, 2017 | By | Reply More


A couple years back, in comics, the ever-popular Deadpool got into interdimensional travel, where he found slightly different versions of himself; one such incarnation had a complete set of XX chromosomes.

 

Wanda Wilson was simply referred to as Deadpool in her own dimension but once she agreed to band with the Deadpool Corps she’s been used to be called Lady Deadpool, Lady D and Hot Pants, among other aliases.

 

As part of the 2017 Marvel Legends 3.75-inch line, Ladypool is a re-issue of the figure originally released in 2013 as part of the Deadpool Taco Truck San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive set.

 

Lady D uses the female body mold developed back in the day for Marvel Universe Series 3, with a character specific head sculpt and additional pieces for her belt and shoulder straps.

 

Being an older design, Lady Deadpool is fully articulated with:

 

• Hinged peg neck.

• Pegged hinge shoulders.

• Pegged hinge elbows.

• Swivel wrists.

• Floating torso.

• Ball jointed hips.

• Upper thigh swivels.

• Double hinged knees.

• Upper calf swivels.

• Hinged peg ankles.

 

Unfortunately, the range of movement at the legs is somewhat limited because the upper thigh piece fits too snugly into the hip piece, but it is still possible to achieve a fair number of dynamic poses.
The paintjob on Lady D is minimal, but well applied. The body was cast in bright red plastic, with black accents on the costume, white eyes and a pale blond color for the hair.

 

This version of Deadpool comes armed with a katana sword that can be carried in a loop at her back, and also comes with bonus character Squirrelpool.  According to the wiki : “When Squirrel Girl and Deadpool used an old teleporter in an old Avengers base they unknowingly created a mutated being that was part of both of them, Squirrelpool was the result.”

The Squirrelpool is a tiny, unarticulated PVC figurine which I think is rather large for a 1:18 scale squirrel, but then again, these rodents usually don’t wear red and black masks nor carry a pair of swords on their backs. The paintjob on Squirrelpool is decent, although some slop can be seen in its orange belly.

 

Given Deadpool’s current popularity, it is no wonder Lady Deadpool is one of the hardest figures to find in the wild these days, and while I do think it is a fine action figure on its own merit, I would not recommend over-paying for her.
