My photoshoot of Hasbro’s Marvel Legends 12-inch Deadpool figure might have gotten away from me, but the point stands—Hasbro has really gotten a handle on 12-inch figures.

This either means they’ve changed it since then, or have a slightly different version for online release. Here are some of the things we spotted!
