One of the coolest items to be released at San Diego Comic Con was the Deadpool Corps box set, aka the Taco Truck. The set features 6 characters – 3 regular Marvel Universe style figures (Deadpool, Lady Deadpool, and Champion of the Universe). It also comes with 3 bonus non-articulated PVC style figs (Kidpool, Squirrelpool, and Dogpool). All of that was wrapped up in a Taco Truck box, with each character individually packaged in a taco. WTF you ask, well, that’s Deadpool and his mini universe for you. Check out over 80 high resolution images of the boxset by reading on!
