[Toy Review] Fire Toy Deadpool

I read a few old and recent Deadpool comics so I kinda know this character. He gained more popularity being playable in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Then he got his own video game and movie. So now I'm gonna review his action figure. But this Deadpool action figure that I got is unusual. It's an unofficial Marvel figure from "Fire Toy", an unknown toy company. The reason I chose this one because it's a cool looking and random figure. I found this toy while walking around the mall. Oh, he also have two color variations: white (X-force) and gold.

This is actually a week late post. Why it's late? Well, it's a mix of busy and lazy times... and seriously, something kinda alarming happened with a family member but it's all fine now.

If you wanna know why the colors are off, well that's a little preview of what this blog will look like (the color scheme) in a few days. Now back to the topic!
