DEADPOOL Breaks the Fourth Wall in This Effects-Heavy Statue

DEADPOOL Breaks the Fourth Wall in This Effects-Heavy Statue

Ask a kid to explain the appeal of Deadpool, and they’ll probably tell you it’s that he’s a cool ninja-looking dude with swords and guns who’s great in a fight. Ask an adult, and they’ll talk about how he’s known for “breaking the fourth wall,” a stage term that essentially means acknowledging you are part of a work of fiction and talking directly to your audience.

This new Deadpool statue from Good Smile not only incorporates both aspects, but it also has the Marvel Merc with a Mouth literally breaking the fourth wall (the implied “wall” between audience and story) by busting through the pages of a comic into our world.

Even in three dimensions, he retains the “cel-shading” textures of computer-colored art, and his bullets, now solid, maintain a “BLAM BLAM” sound effect. Below him, the pages of his comic scatter as a torn scrap of paper still sticks to his boot from where he kicked his way into reality. Also, the comic pages are now on fire.

As part of Marvel’s Age of Heroes exhibit in Tokyo, a variant with different colored guns will be available for those lucky enough to make it. Elsewhere in the world, the regular version will run you around $220 at all the usual online and retail stores.

The statue stands just shy of ten inches tall, and is detailed back to front. Sculpted and painted by Koji Toshiro, it’s based on a design concept by Shigeto Koyama. It now awaits a fifth wall–your own, at home, on which you will find shelf space for it.

Is this the coolest Deadpool statue yet? Let us know what you think, below.
