Standing fully erect at a colossal 10 inches high, this highly detailed Premium Motion Statue™ recreates one of Deadpool’s most iconic images. As with all of Factory Entertainment’s Premium Motion Statues™, this product features an integrated dynamic element which distinguishes it from other sculptural collectibles. In this instance Deadpool’s red rocket gracefully sways back and forth simulating a sky rocket in flight, sure to delight fans eager for further stimulation that regular statues cannot provide.


“Many chimichangas were consumed in order for our team to have enough energy to truly capture Deadpool’s ride in the right detail,” said Barry Eldridge, Creative Director at Factory Entertainment. ”We’re thrilled with the results and cannot wait for everyone to see it in the flesh at New York Toy Fair 2016! In our opinion, the timing couldn’t be better with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. Usually it’s Cupid that penetrates you with his arrow, but Deadpool’s rocket has plenty of love to give and it’s going to be his year to target your heart!”


Factory Entertainment has this piece available to pre-order on its website starting today at a limited time pre-order promotional price of $179.99, regularly $199.99, while supplies last. Fans can also visit Factory Entertainment’s website to win a free Deadpool Rocket Ride Premium Motion Statue™.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
