POGO PG220, PG223, PG224: Cannonball, Deadpool, and Dormammu Minifigs Review

I just really love the set where they came from.
Also already reviewed Dark Phoenix here.

PG220 - Cannonball
PG223 - Deadpool (Battle of the Atom)
PG224 - Dormammu

Let's start with these two.
I don't know much about Cannonball which is why I don't know what his accessory is for. I do know that Deadpool shouldn't have a bow and arrow; he looks like Arsenal because of that lol. His source design really acknowledges him as Deadpool and he actually has swords + the color is darker red.

Printing wise and molding wise, these two are one of the better POGO minfigs, especially recently. Details are nicely done and printing for the most part is sharp.

Only one concern: Deadpool's lower leg printing. I think the picture is enough to explain what's wrong. Hopefully others have better leg printing.

Deadpool's got some nice side printing. His right arm doesn't have wrist area printing unlike his left one, might be intentional but even if it was an error, at least there are no fade marks.

Very good back printing for the back as well for both minifigs.

How Deadpool should have been in the first place.

First thing you notice, transparent head + transparent flame hair. The torso design, in my opinion, is a bit too simple. Looks kinda boring but still enough to capture the essence of Dormammu. Another thing I'm not too fond of is the torso neck being too visible because of the transparent head; the head of Moltor from Nexo Knights would have still been a good head honestly.

Oh and he comes with a gun even though he shouldn't. Oh well.

Back printing.

Side printing = none. His right arm was a bit too loose though.

I was actually in the process of creating a Dormmamu MOC using Moltor's head + Batman 3000's torso. I never got the chance to get a Moltor head though, but here's Dormammu's head with my unused Batman 3000 torso. (Actually used Batman's head for my Stilt-Man MOC)

His flame hair piece obviously came from Ghost Rider's, but SY's Ghost Rider's flame hair quality is way better than Dormammu's. I can't describe it well but GR's flame is more solid, like the usual SY plastic while POGO Dormammu's seems a bit cheaper. You can also see the different in terms of the gloss of both, Ghost Rider's is more consistent, if you get what I'm saying.. 
TL;DR - SY Ghost Rider's flame is better than POGO Dormammu's. 

Seems like it was just a few days ago that I saw this preview but my local store, AngeloMarcus gets them even quicker than Ali, or at least it seems like it. PSA to Philippine-based readers, they're located at Shoppesville Plus in Greenhills. PM or comment for more details!
