It wasn’t announced until Preview Night of San Diego Comic Con 2017 but I have managed to get the exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Deadpool Duck. He is basically what happens when Deadpool is combined with Howard the Duck which was first introduced in a five issue miniseries at the beginning of the year. The clamshell that Deadpool Duck uses is the same one as before in previous years. The backing is just a two-sided one with the back promoting LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.
The torso is a new one with updated printing. There are now straps that go around the shoulders and around the back. There’s also some brown pouches around the waist as well. The Deadpool buckle is a little bit larger. The legs are of the short variety as he is a duck. The head gets a makeover which uses the Donald and Daisy head mold from the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Disney Series (71012). The head is now painted with the red and black Deadpool mask with one eye squinting.
Overall, the exclusive SDCC 2017 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Deadpool Duck is a great addition to any collection. Considering Deadpool hasn’t appeared in a set since 2013 with the Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866), any variant of him is a good. Unfortunately for fans who weren’t able to attend SDCC, the only way to possibly get it is having really good friends or on the secondary market. The price of it has dropped somewhat since SDCC ended but it’s still one of the more expensive exclusive LEGO minifigures.
To tell you about the process of how I got Deadpool Duck, I didn’t try for him on Thursday mainly because of what happened last year at SDCC. Basically, my press badge wouldn’t allow me to get him although it didn’t specifically say that press couldn’t do it. I assumed that this year would be the same until I found out that I could try for it. As a result, I had to wait until Saturday to try for it. Luckily the iPad gods were generous enough to give me the green Good Cop sign and I managed to walk away with it. Right after, I walked out of the line, there were a number of scalpers waiting to buy them off of people by offering $100 for it just so they can flip it a few seconds later on eBay. Like I’ve said many times before, time is the most important thing at SDCC. If you guys want to know, I waited in line for three plus hours with my group for a chance to win this so I got pretty lucky.
