SDCC exclusive Sheriff Deadpool!

Posted by ,

LEGO has revealed the first of this year's exclusive San Diego Comic-Con minifigures on Twitter. Sheriff Deadpool wears a false moustache and a tan cowboy hat, perhaps taking some inspiration from a popular trailer for Deadpool 2 which was released earlier this year. The 'Merc' with a Mouth' has also been known to dress as a modern sheriff in the comics.

You can take a closer look at this minifigure after the break...

Are you attending San Diego Comic-Con this year and will you be trying to acquire a Sheriff Deadpool minifigure? Let us know in the comments.

I wish after they were exclusive to the event at the time they would make them available on LEGO.com. Not everyone can travel 10,000 miles to SDCC for a minifigure :-(

And there was me thinking Lego were being more considerate this year and only doing sets.
As a company they are very easy to dislike.

How many of these will sadly end up on eBay selling for ridiculously exorbitant prices :(

I would be ok if Marvel’s Sdcc minifigures were all different versions of Deadpool. I’m not a huge fan of the character.

While I get that he’s a really popular character, why do we need another exclusive Deadpool variant? Why couldn’t we get a new character. There’s plenty to choose from

I'm glad to see people finally waking up to how horrible a company LEGO is and they aren't your friend or God, they want money money money. Then they complain they don't get money from third market sales yet still make these figures.

I for one love it and can't wait until I get the knock off on eBay for $2.

Is it just me or dose that hat piece look like a new mold? Interesting that they would do 1 off versions of the same character 2 years in a row but it's actually a good thing since we may not see some of these anywhere else. As far as any doubters where concerned it seems fairly clear to me that the ages LEGO puts on the boxes should be replaced with a "build difficulty rating" instead since I can't see how a character like Deadpool is appropriate for ages 6+ unless this is based on the comics and some of the cartoon cameos over the years, if it is then I understand a bit more how that is but that still doesn't change the fact that LEGO needs to change the age recommendation to a build difficulty ratting given that the last Deadpool set was ages 6-12! But still who actually cares what age is on the box, LEGO is something that can be enjoyed at any age! As far as the minifigure itself I think this is one of my favorites to come out of SDCC

How does this giveaway figure demonstrate that LEGO wants "money money money"? They literally give it away for free. And even if some winners choose to sell it on the secondary market, LEGO doesn't see any of that money.

Of course companies want to make money, but LEGO doesn't make any on this.

@hotdogonthebbq - I think at this point Lego knows there's no chance that a kid could obtain one of these figures, so that shouldn't be an issue.

It's a good looking figure. Not one I'm super bummed about not being able to get, but I agree with blitzspear that if this figure was available online for a limited time, I'm sure a lot more fans would be happy.

I think it's neat that this is a minifigure only collectors would want, a variant of an existing character, unlike past SDCC exclusives, which depict fan-favorite Superheroes that'll probably never appear in wide-release sets.

Why torture us fans that aren’t attending SDCC, Lego?! I thought they weren’t going to be any exclusive figs after seeing the sets for SDCC, but unfortunately not. :(

I love reading the comments. There are always people talking smack. If Lego was so evil, then why go to a blog about Lego? It is cool to say if you like the figure or not. How you wish Lego would make it more available or a different character.

But if you are going to talk about buying the $2 eBay knock off, then leave. In fact brickset needs to ban you for life.

And why you are at it, why don’t you show off your Mega B&$#! Loving tattoo!

Sigh....

And I thought this year was shaping up to be different...

I honestly don't get all the upset around these exclusive figures, especially since with this one you could probably make a cowboy version of Deadpool with existing parts anyway.
People get too hyped around minifigs tbh and often you can put together your own version of characters anyway, which is more creative.

Still waiting for a other character form the flash tv show! Or Any other cw show!

I love this figure choice. People complain about a variant of an existing character who probably won’t ever be in a normal set again thanks to his R-rated movie franchise, and they also complain when Lego makes popular characters SDCC exclusives. If Lego keeps making Deadpool variants as the exclusive figures I’ll be happy since they’re good minifigures but not ones that I’m mad about not owning. It’s characters like Phoenix and the Collector that are horrible choices for exclusives.

Oh nice to see the typical LEGO cult members have shown up.

Grow up people, it's a toy line and I don't need to agree with everything the company does.

I love this figure. I like how this year and last that LEGO has made Deadpool variants instead of exclusive characters for the SDCC exclusive figure. Deadpool is widely known as an R-rated character now so limiting him to SDCC makes perfect sense and removes the worry on fans of missing out on characters they’d really like such as The Collector or Phoenix (or Shazam and Bizarro on the DC side). I think this is the way to go for LEGO going forward on the Marvel side, variants of Deadpool, because there’s like a million of them.

Im a huge fan of deadpool, but not this minifig unfortunately, id rather lego made him in the black n grey X-force suit..
Or Released a Galactus or silver surcer minifig, or at a push make kingpin from the fox kids spiderman series:

@blitzspear and BlueberryWaffles: you guys are absolutely right!! LEGO should do it the "Lester-way" and release the figure after the SDCC. Due to it's popularity it would sell quite well. And this is what a company is supposed to do. Selling stuff that people need, or at least want.
Why not make a collectible series from him in all his costumes/versions? If a freaky brick-mutation like unikitty gets that, why not a "real" mutant?!
And please everybody, stop the hating when someone admits he buys clone stuff. LEGO is no religion. Just a quite pricey addiction... ;-) and for sure, we all want the real stuff!!!

Gotta' remember everyone, all these SDCC, comic convention exclusives are advertising. To create a buzz certain times of the year.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Um...Weren't people complaining that there weren't any exclusive figures just the other day?

For me, this figure is relatively nothing, if they were to release normal Deadpool as an SDCC exclusive I would be peeved, but these variants, really only of interest to collectors, don't especially grind my gears.

Ugh....here we go again. Another year of Lego slapping the faces of fans with these SDCC exclusive minifigs.

It is true that you do not have to like everything that Lego produces. That does start to fall in the category of cultish.

That is not the reason to come to a site like this. It is useful to see the new sets / minifigures before the come out so that we can pick the ones that best fit our interests. Personally the reason I read the articles and comments is to get a better idea of the new parts and building techniques being used.

But if the evil empire called Lego bothers you that bad, you can always hold on to 1985 tubes of kragal instead.

What a bunch of babies...I thought we were adults here? Taking shots at the company, calling them horrible...grow up. Cons always have exclusives, it’s incentive to go & visit their booths. You act like spoilt brats because you personally can’t get one. Deal with it.

Sure, they could offer them later, but they don’t. And seeing how people react to them, I would t either. Why reward such childish antics?

"And seeing how people react to them..."

That is, wanting the opportunity to spend money on them so Lego can profit and stuff?

"...I wouldn't either."

Well that just seems like a not-great way to run a business, but okay.

This figure seems interesting to say the least... However, Deadpool, while funny, has never been one of my favorite characters, so missing this one doesn't bother me that much. Plus, this is only a Deapool figure with a few exclusive prints. Also, while I enjoy some of the other characters, I don't really feel like forking out a ton of money for a single minifigure. After all, the sets come with more than 1 figure and I honestly think it's fair that these people charge what we call "ridiculous prices." when there's only a limited supply and a high demand and considering these figures are exclusive to a convention, these prices seem fair if you consider it long enough. I honestly hate calling people out, but these are my honest opinions on these figures (After all, one does get better deals on any set anyways). Sorry to be negative, but these are my thoughts.

If you're upset with the exclusive, then don't buy it. You don't need to buy everything LEGO produces. And for those considering getting the fake, then you're in the wrong website.

I had to laugh when I saw this choice. I hadn't seen the trailer in a while so I followed the link and watched it again - I noticed that on at least one of the feet of the Sheriff Deadpool figure is written "Wade" just like Woody had "Andy" on the bottom of one of his feet. It would be great if Lego figured out a way to have "Wade" printed somewhere near the bottom of one of this minifigure's legs.

Good way to make fun of your customers; 2 years in a row releasing a exclusive deadpool.
regular customer still waiting for over 4 years to get a deadpool....

@peterjohn0 good catch! I wouldn't have noticed that, lol!

SDCC exclusive figures need to die, simple as that. Call me salty all you like, but Taneleer Tivan / The Collector should NOT have been restricted to ca. 500-1000 people at one goddamn event in the States that even most Lego-fans from the US themselves can't attend.
Lego is a rather expensive hobby already, but forking over hundreds of bucks for super-ultra-exclusive figures... nobody truly wants that.

I feel for Deadpool fans, he's been an exclusive figure twice (?) now, but has had no regular figure since 2012 (6866)

The sherriff hat and moustache already exist. I could easily find black arms and red hands. You could find brown cowboy pants anywhere, use a normal deadpool head and the only real problem is the torso. To me, this isn't a big deal. However, some of the characters done in the past, really frustrate me. However, Atom, Venom, Shazam, and Arsenal... Really?

@Ephseb by your logic that means all toy companies should stop with Con exclusives. I don’t mind them period. They’re like mementos for the trip to the con, a reward for those who make it the Cons. Funko does this to with the Pop bobble heads.

I really don't like all the exclusive releases. Lego should make them available in the Lego shop for everybody to order after SDCC. Not everyone is able to travel to the other side of the globe just to pick these up. Pretty much a stab in the back to the fans if yous ask me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I do understand why these make folks so upset. I got into the Marvel/DC Super Hero lines a bit late, so I have quite a few of the early event exclusive minifigures missing from my collection unfortunately. Every once and a while I toy with the idea of trying to score Spiderwoman or Bizarro off eBay, but usually I look at what's coming down the pike for the three sub-lines I collect (Marvel, DC & Star Wars) and I hold off. I've pretty much gotten into the habit of budgeting $400 - $600 each year to cover the Lego convention exclusives and I just accept that as "how it is".

What would be everyone's thoughts about these if every couple of years they released minifigure four packs, like the TRU Bricktober format? This way, the individual release packaging would be "exclusive" and the 4-pack would offer collectors a way to simple collect the character. Or is that still not different enough? I'm not trying to stir up more complaining just trying to see what people think of the idea.

By in United States,

@peterjohn: That idea does sound interesting to me. My question is how will Lego make four exclusive figures for every few years and what would they replace the figures with on the years they don't do it? And while I think it's a good idea, I kind of feel like there will always be some disagreement (at the least) no matter what they do. Although, on the flip side, perhaps having more figures in a pack would raise the after market prices even further and that doesn't really solve the problem there. Just based on the comments section alone, I feel like banning the figures outright would make the most people happy, even though it's fair in my opinion
