Another box arrived at the Major Spoilers HQ, just in time for the holiday weekend!  Inside was the upcoming Kotobukya Deadpool fine art statue.  Take the jump for a huge gallery of images and our initial thoughts.

First of all, I totally wasn’t expecting to see this statue anytime soon, so my initial reaction was, “NO WAY!”  This statue is an excellent sculpt (as are most of the fine art statues from Kotobukiya).

I like that Kotobukiya includes multiple parts with many of their statues so you can swap out and change the figure to suit your mood.  In this case, Deadpool comes with two different arms; a pair with swords, and a pair with guns.  There are also a number of miscellaneous parts (additional guns), and a cute little Deadpool doll to really warp your reality when looking at this bad-ass character ready to take someone down.

In addition to the arms, the statue comes with a base and the main body.  It’s a fairly tight fit where the base and figure join, so I don’t think you’ll have to worry about things falling apart if you pick it up.

The paint job is really well done, it isn’t a super glossy paint, but it’s shiny enough to catch highlights in the light.  The blacks are really black, which causes problems if you are taking photographs, but look great to the eye.

Sculpted by Erick and William Valenzue, the statue looks great from any angle, but if I had one complaint, it would be the front arm placement.  If you like to display your statues with the figure looking right at you, more often than not, you’ll be looking at Deadpool’s arm and weapon instead of the face.  Personally, I like the three-quarter profile for this statue best, and I prefer the swords to guns.  As always, your mileage may vary…

The statue stands 10-inches high and sells for $174.99.  If you are a Deadpool fan, then this is a must have for your collection as the detail is phenomenal.   So worth 4.5 out of 5 Stars.

    The only thing that I don’t like about that figure is that it isn’t based on a Liefeld picture. Deadpool needs to have 95 pouches strapped to every limb and 24 guns and swords sticking out from all over the place. That’s why they sent you so many extra weapons and stuff, you’re supposed to use them all at once. Excess my friends, that’s what it’s all about.

    Like a wise person once said, “Nothing exceeds like excess.”

    I really do like the statue though, it’s a pretty cool sculpt. I don’t think I could ever afford to drop that much money on something that just sits on a flat surface of my choosing. I’ve got a budget though and small kids, so yeah. Glad somebody is getting to enjoy this stuff.
