Hasbro continues to gear up for their first Hascon convention with a whole lot of exclusives, and now Deadpool is truly joining the fight.
Hascon is set to take place September 8th through September 10th at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island. We've already seen some of the exclusive toys that they're bringing to the event, which includes a transforming Optimus Prime power bank, Magic: The Gathering cards, a Star Wars 6″ Black Series Clone Wars Captain Rex, and even a My Little Pony Dungeons & Dragons Dice Set. A Marvel Legends 6″ X-Force Deadpool figure was also on that list, and now we have a better look the packaging and accessories.
Those accessories include various weapons such as rifles, pistols, and swords. There's also an unmasked face, but let me direct your attention to the taco. Yes, Hasbro seems intent on working a taco into their latest Deadpool merchandise, as illustrated by the Deadpool-themed Nerf Rival blasters that they debuted at SDCC. More toy tacos is always a good thing.
The Marvel Legends 6″ X-Force Deadpool will be available at Hascon for $20 and, apparently, at future cons down the line. You can learn more about Hascon from the official description below.
