For a sec I thought this was another Spiderman on a scooter but that goes to show you my lack of knowledge on the subject of superheroes. Forgive me. This is Deadpool, who will be played by Ryan Reynolds (aka Green Lantern) in 2014. Wikipedia describes this Marvel character as a “disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary” who was originally a villain but now is an antihero or the “Merc with a Mouth.” Swoon!
The top figurine pictured is one of those pricey limited edition collectibles and can be yours for $319.00. The bottom figurines go to the rare swag category but are probably available is you’re willing to dig both in your wallet and through the web. Maybe we’ll be lucky and Ryan will be riding a scooter in the movie which will mean movie toys!
Thanks to Paul at Sportique Scooters for this great find. It’s yet another Marvel Comic Book cover with a scooter on it! I checked and both were done by different artists so perhaps it’s just coincidence? How did we get so lucky?
Here’s the description from the site:
