I picked up my new Deadpool Pro today and there was a very cool gift in the box with the following letter. It will be made into a topper.

That’s a bunch of bullshit! I bought an LE and 6 months later I get a lousy album. You spend half and get a Katana! Congratulations, F*** me

very kool !

#5 1 year ago

Yes. This shit. More of this cool shit. I wrote in the GB (29 months) code thread and how they need to be a more fun company because they make a fun product!

More of this and less “corporate” marketing blitzes please!

#6 1 year ago

Awesome!

#7 1 year ago

Oh man!! I want to place an order now!!

#8 1 year ago

Very cool! I honestly thought the surprise gift was going to be the Ghostbusters code update lol!

#9 1 year ago

Yeah Babee!!!!

#10 1 year ago

Is anyone else like me thinking maybe....just maybe this is a little hoax by the OP?!?!

I mean, America more than any other country is full of litigious people and do Stern really send a sword, in a box, in the hopes that one doesn't uses it as a weapon....or cuts themselves and sues?!?

...I know I'm possibly being a negative Nancy but I'll bullshit!

From the OP, who is both an attorney and a lifelong martial artist who practices tameshigiri with a live blade, the sword is only decorative and not sharpened.

Glad to see that there are conspiracy theorist down under.

Thanks for the laugh.

#15 1 year ago

Very awesome.

#16 1 year ago

Wow!! That’s cool.

#18 1 year ago

Now that’s classy. I hope Stern continues that in the future. Congrats on it, looks awesome!

#19 1 year ago

That’s awesome! That’s a nice treat, very cool to do!

Lol...appreciate the big noting you gave yourself...pat yourself on the back!

Just seemed...unusual. No promotion via usual Stern channels that's all. Always touting their cards for the BM66 model...would've thought this would have been shown as well...either way, glad I gave a laugh though...!

Hey just trying to say that I’m big enough, smart enough and skilled enough not cut myself on a paperweight after you went all crikey, don’t give the Americans a fake sword because they might cut their hang nails and sue Stern.

Give me a break. The world as a whole is full of litigious people. So by this post, I suppose we can assume that your country is full of judgemental people? Give it a rest with the mudslinging.

#26 1 year ago

Nice! Good for you, what a great surprise!

#27 1 year ago

Cool. Also #jealous. It would be a nice post-purchase gift for LE buyers. If Stern is planning to begin selling these, it’s a smart marketing strategy.

Looks like it's having its intended affect.

Just be careful you don't shoot your eye out.
Red Ryder Kantanas are known for that.

Congrats BTW

#31 1 year ago

Damn, very cool! Very jealous! Congrats!

#32 1 year ago

George Gomez is a cool dude

Now if Gary can just send me a light saber for my Star Wars LE-we will be even

Congrats-nice surprise for sure

It’s almost like your offended by the truth. America is not the most litigious country, but it’s in the top 5. So ya, there are a lot of law suits in the USA compared to other places.

“There is a common misconception that the U.S. is the most litigious nation in the World. This is simply untrue. While it’s true that the U.S. has a large number of lawsuits crowding its courts each year, it barely cracks the Top 5 of most litigious countries in the world. In his book, “Exploring Global Landscapes of Litigation,” Christian Wollschlager notes that the litigation rates per 1,000 people shows that European nations top the list of the world’s most litigious countries. Here is a list of the top 5 most litigious countries by capita: 1. Germany: 123.2/1,000 2. Sweden: 111.2/1,000 3. Israel: 96.8/1,000 4. Austria: 95.9/1,000 5. U.S.: 74.5/1,000. The Top 10 also includes the UK (64.4); Denmark (62.5); Hungary (52.4); Portugal (40.7); and France (40.3).”

Awesome! I had no idea they did stuff like that.

I wonder if anyone who ordered a Star Trek got a live tribble?

You say I'm offended by the truth, then provide proof that it is, in fact, not true.

I hope not ... because by now they'd have a few trillion of them.

Of course it turns political and of course we get the usual denial from the usual suspect country.

No kidding. Why can't people just appreciate the gesture and be happy for the OP? I think it's a great marketing tool and something Stern should do more often. A sword is pretty cool but could just be a simple t-shirt, mug, or key fob with game art on it.

Total bull crap I bought a Munsters and all I got was a perfectly working pinball machine.time to wright Gomez a letter...

That stat is per capita. USA has 4 times to population of Germany. So ya, it's probably true that USA has the highest number of litigation

#48 1 year ago

It's a cool gesture. I'd like them to do more of this but in a different way. Maybe contests for owners to participate in. Get the community involved to send pics and give reviews.

#49 1 year ago

Good news is nice to see in the midst of many threads that focus on negativity. Thanks for posting!
