More than six months after it first teased the statue, Kotobukiya has official revealed the next addition to its Marvel Bishoujo line: Lady Deadpool.
Arriving in February, Earth-3010’s version of the Merc with a Mouth stands 9.5 inches tall comes complete with two interchangeable heads (one with the mask and one without, revealing the face of Wanda Wilson beneath) and two interchangeable hands (one holding the mask).
Following last week’s tease, Kotobukiya has debuted the first full look at the new Wasp statue from its Marvel Comics Bishoujo line. Based on an illustration by Shunya Yamashita, the final statue adds a pool of water as a base.
On Sunday, the Japanese collectibles company also released Yamashita’s illustration of Lady Deadpool, which will follow the Wasp statue.
USA Today talks to Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld in a post-WonderCon article about all things Deadpool. Three things in it jumped out at me:
1) The cover to Deadpool Corps #3 features a fun homage to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at the Disney parks.
Also, USA Today credits the cover to Liefeld, but I believe it’s actually by Arthur Suydam — at least that’s what Marvel.com says. The cover is indeed by Rob Liefeld and Mike Capprotti, according to Liefeld on Twitter. (Thanks and apologies, Rob!)
2) Deadpool is almost 20 years old. Holy cats.
3) “…and there are rumors of everything from a Deadpool Noir series to an R-rated Deadpool MAX title to a Kidpool spinoff.” Hell, why not? I say milk it — it kind of goes with the tone and attitude of the character.
