The Walking Dead - Pin Cushion Zombie ( Comic Series)

Where to begin! There was so much greatness in that last box of Walking Dead figures that I probably won't be getting around to reviewing all of them. Instead, I'm just going to go over the ones that really caught my attention, even though every last one of these figures rock! Today we look at the comic series Pin Cushion Zombie! 
I just couldn't wait to go to town with this one. After looking at all of the holes in this figures body and all of the bloodied  accessories, I knew what had to be done!
Amazing aesthetics! Love the detail on this figure.
Placing each weapon into the body of the zombie was, strangely, very pleasing๐Ÿ˜‚ I love how the sword goes right through to the other side.
Once again, a huge shout out to GIjigsaw for the figures๐Ÿ™ Much, much more to come!

So, This Just Happened...AGAIN!

Sorry about the lack of posts. I've been trying to keep myself busy with everything that's been going on, helping out family members while simultaneously keeping myself sane creating music and excersing whenever possible. Lately it's been pretty clear outside without any snowfall so I've been able to get a few bike rides in . Todays bike ride was a particularly special one ,though. As I approached my garage to stash the old mountain bike, I came across this....
Another care package from fellow blogger, Goerge AKA GIjigsaw! I immediately hopped on my phone to drop him a thank you email because..dang.. just look at this..!
I'll be going through these and posting about them individually within the next couple of days. There's so much WD goodness here! So, this is what my Walking Dead display looks like today. 
These shelves will look significantly different in the days ahead๐Ÿ˜‰ Many thanks Jigs!

GI Joe Classified Baroness/C.O.I.L.

Not sure If I'll be posting on X -Mas day so Merry Christmas to everyone now, just in case ๐ŸŽ„⛄ I'll be wrapping up my GI Joe Classified figure posts with The Baroness! Another awesome design from Hasbro, chock-full of accessories and Cobra greatness! 
Here's a comparison pic of 3.75 GI Joe Rise of Cobra movie figure next to the Classified Baroness.

GI Joe Classified Beachhead

I had already seen tons of Beachhead reviews prior to receiving this one, and I was on the fence about the figure. The light green weapons give the figure a Lanard Corps!  vibe and the beret , while a cool addition, wasn't something I was accustomed to seeing Beachhead with. Those qualms aside, you've got a nice, updated version of a childhood favorite! 

I think a little bit of camouflage detail along the sleaves and military cargo pants would have gone a long way. Other than that, it's not a horrible figure, by any means. The working holsters, glossy accents and throwback backpack design help even things out.

GI Joe Classified Roadblock

"Back again, it's the host with the most! Hittin' you with another Classified post๐Ÿ˜‰"  Roadblock is such a beast! This figure conveys that beautifully! 

I still say this was supposed to be Heavy Duty. Both characters were very similar. Cousins, in fact. Either way, just a crazy design. A couple more weapons would have been nice, but who am I to complain? 

Just look at how far GI Joe has come. 1984 - 2020!

GI Joe Classified Cobra Trooper

I was gonna hold off on this post but couldn't after looking at how awesome these figures photograph. I mean, even without a proper backdrop, these figures  just pop! It's like... holding an HD Gi Joe figure in your hand. One day my parents are gonna walk in on me and find me sitting indian style ,having a full on play session. At that point, they may attempt to have me committed ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ The pics say it all.

The Walking Dead - Abraham and Daryl

I'm making this a double post as most of you have probably been itching to see that Daryl w/ chopper set! So we'll start things off with the comic book version of Abraham. Seeing this figure makes me want to pick up some of the comics even more, now. A great looking design and he kind of reminds me of Outback from GI Joe. In fact, this probably what Outback would have looked like in the Renegades series that got cancelled a while back. 
So badass!
This figure/ vehicle combo will go down as one of my top 5 favs! Let's look at Daryl first! 
So much detail! The pic doesn't do it justice. You really have to hold these figures in hand and look them over to find little things like stitching, rips and other small markings exclusive to the character the figure is portraying.
The gang's all here! 
Daryl w/ chopper!
Wow! Just look at this thing! 
The chopper features everything from a license plate to miscellaneous cables and rubber brake lines ! The tires are rubber as well.
And just for fun...

Once again, a huge thank you goes out to GI Jigsaw for the generous package! So appreciative ๐Ÿ™
