Since its debut in the 90s, Deadpool has always been Marvel’s most irreverent character, although it wasn’t until the release of the Ryan Reynolds film that it really reached unprecedented heights of popularity.
Not surprisingly, the hooligan attitude and obsession with breaking the fourth wall have made this character an icon, and his phrases are repeated by both fans and non fans.
Now you can enjoy those little snaps whenever you want, thanks to Hasbro’s new product: a personal assistant in the shape of the Deadpool head.
The head of Deadpool now can be yours
In fact, now you can get what you always wanted, a decapitated head that talks to you, makes dirty jokes and wakes you up in the morning. And even if that’s not the case with you, I’m sure now that I’ve said it, you’ll want to have one.
The voice is an important detail in Deadpool (despite what a certain movie thought), so it’s not surprising that this head is capable of saying 600 different phrases, depending on the situation; thanks to the included sensors, it is able to know when a sound has been produced, if we have turned on the light or if we have turned it over, and it will react in every situation. It’s wireless, but that means we’ll have to install four 1.5-volt C-cells.
Connected to the mobile phone
In addition, we can connect the head to our mobile using the official app, to unlock new functions and sounds, including insults. Of course, there is no lack of references to Marvel films and comics; when we turn it upside down (worth the redundancy), it asks us to give it “a generic, unbranded kiss”.
Perhaps calling this a ‘personal assistant’ is overdoing it, since its function is more to have fun with the nonsense it says; it’s a toy mainly aimed at adults, and as such it has a price tag that fits: about 100 dollars. It will arrive next autumn, although we still have no price in Europe; moreover, we must bear in mind that the voices have only been recorded in English, so it will be more enjoyable if we understand the language.
