We’ve been fans of the “Merc With A Mouth”, Deadpool here at the PiercingMetal Command HQ since we first learned of his existence back in “New Mutants” #98 (which came out in 1991 for those hunters). He seems to be everywhere nowadays in more comics, on film and on numerous toys such as these cool offerings coming soon from Hasbro Toys.
The Press Release:
MARVEL DEADPOOL CHIMICHANGA SURPRISE WITH MYSTERY FILLING (ORDER 1)
(HASBRO/Ages 14 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $7.99/Available: Fall 2018)
Satisfy cravings for DEADPOOL awesomeness with a randomly packed CHIMICHANGA SURPRISE WITH MYSTERY FILLING! Unwrap each CHIMICHANGA SURPRISE pack to reveal the MYSTERY FILLINGS. Each pack includes one 2-inch scale DEADPOOL figure, one accessory, and one sticker sheet. There are 12 to collect in Order 1. Each sold separately. And for the love of unicorns: these items are NOT for eating. C’mon, people! Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com (linked at the close).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As much as I LOVE Deadpool, I am not the biggest collector of the “blind-bag” packaging offerings. I guess this brings me back to the days of trying to collect all of “The Freakies” figurines from the cereal bearing the same name and when I finally had them all, for some reason my babysitter discarded them on me. I remember being very unhappy about this for quite some time – but I digress. I tend to view the old cereal box prize hunting the same as these blind package hunts. I think that these are awesome and I am sure with the two movies under his belt and a brand new comic book series coming as well that anything stamped Deadpool is like money in the bank. According to my local comic book shop owner at Galaxy Comics (in Bay Ridge Brooklyn #shamelessplug for my peeps), the collectors today trade between themselves to get their full set. I think that is an awesome idea and hope that anyone who purchases these “Deadpool Chimichanga Surprise” collectibles manages to get a full set come the Fall when they are available. With the NY Comic Con being in the early Fall, I imagine that fans will find this stuff there as well or can discuss obtaining them with some vendors onsite. That’s all I have about this one and I wonder what you think of them. Chime in down below and let me know your thoughts.
