Action figure scale is a funny thing. It seems like every company needs to function in a different scale to maintain their license. After a while, they can become limiting, but there are really only two options. You’ve either got to snake the license for the scale you want away from your competitor, or you just have to come up with a new scale to call your own. It looks like NECA did the latter with the pending release of their first 1/2 scale figure, a 3-foot-tall Deadpool with 30 Points of articulation. While many will consider this to be the ultimate get for their action figure collection, they may find themselves struggling to justify the $700 price tag. To put in relative terms, that’s around 35 Marvel Legends figures. One thing is for sure, I’m already afraid of what some people will do with this guy on Instagram.

Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth becomes NECA’s first-ever 1/2 scale action figure! Possibly the most skilled mercenary in the world… and definitely the most annoying. The joke-cracking, reference-making, fourth-wall-breaking, taco-eating funnyman of the cold-blooded killer set, Deadpool has long skirted the line between hero and villain, between maniac and genius, between ugly and smelly.

This incredibly detailed figure stands an incredible 36” tall and has over 30 points of articulation. Deadpool’s joints have been reinforced and ratchet into place. Accessories include katanas, sai and knife, all with working sheaths, plus interchangeable hands.
