Hasbro Pulse announced a new addition to is Marvel Legends premium line, a life-sized animatronic head of Deadpool that talks. Marvel Legends, known for typically making life-sized helmets, has made a rare move toward the 18-and-up crowd, as the head also possesses the Merc With a Mouth’s foul mouth.
Deadpool isn’t voiced by Ryan Reynolds, but they do have the same cadence and inflections in their spoken lines. The Deadpool head reacts to sound, being moved, and even has specific responses from being placed in the refrigerator. It also has the same eye expressions and mouth movements as he does in the film adaptations.
The life-sized talking head has over 600 phrases, some of which offer some knowledgable Marvel Comics trivia. Some phrases come already programmed, but the figure also comes with an app that may offer more talking updates in the future. The packaging and instructions even have Deadpool-esque jokes inside. The instructions also have bonus instructions to fold it into a paper hat for the animatronic head to wear.
The decapitated Deadpool head is available to pre-order now, with some specialties stores expected to follow. The product is expected to ship September 1 and is limited to 2 purchases per customer.
