While Deadpool probably makes a pretty penny on the mercenary circuit, we imagine merchandising helps to support his rampant taco/chimichanga habit, and it looks like our friends over at Gentle Giant Ltd. are his enablers! That's right, today we're looking at two awesome pieces of Merc-With-A-Mouth-Merchandise that will go great on any shelf or office desk: a Deadpool Mini-Bust and that grotesquely-amazing pencil cup.
Deadpool Pencil Cup Desk Accessory $99.13
Release Date: Spring 2012
Ooh. That’s got to hurt. Inspired by the violent and comedic mutant anti-hero Deadpool, Marvel’s incredibly popular “Merc With a Mouth,” the Deadpool Pencil Cup is the first of Gentle Giant’s line of exciting Marvel desk accessories and is sure to be a conversation starter. Cast in high-quality polystone, this unique piece comes with two shuriken-shaped erasers and a soft plastic arrow fletching cap so you can “weaponize” your favorite pen or pencil! Make Mine Marvel!
This limited edition pencil cup has been crafted and detailed by the talented artisans and sculptors at Gentle Giant Ltd. Each piece is cast in high quality polystone, hand painted and individually numbered and comes with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.
Deadpool Mini Bust $89
Release Date: Spring 2012
One of Marvel’s most unique anti-heroes, Deadpool is a character whose origins are shrouded in mystery. Originally created to be a villain and foil to Cable and The New Mutants (later X-Force), the character’s devil-may-care attitude and flamboyant, ultraviolent tongue-in-cheek style caused him to soar in popularity with readers of all ages. This garnered the Merc With A Mouth his own series, which is known for it’s own original style blending action and dark comedy, as well as numerous spin-off books and guest appearances throughout the Marvel Universe. Where Deadpool goes, chaos and wisecracks follow.
Brought to life in high quality polystone and armed to the teeth, the Deadpool Mini Bust is no laughing matter. No feature has been overlooked with the creation of this piece, with Deadpool’s signature red and black costume and each of his weapons rendered in loving detail by the skilled sculptors at Gentle Giant Ltd. This 1/6th scale Mini Bust is hand painted, individually numbered and comes with a matching Certificate of Authenticity. Make Mine Marvel!
