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 🙏

The Walking Dead - Michonne w/ Pet Walkers

I have to admit to missing alot of this story arc. I'll have to go back and refresh , but that doesn't take away from the absolute  awesomeness of these figures and how they look on display. Michonne was another character that took a little time for me to warm up to but  that changed after seeing her softer side with Carl. I liked that dynamic. The one thing I would have liked to see with her figure is a little more poseabilty. I mean, she's got the articulation but it's kind of tight in certain areas and I'm afraid to force it for fear of something popping off. Aside from that, just an amazing sculpt and incredibly detailed figure. It's kind of wierd but I really like the boot/shoe  sculpts  on alot of the WD figures. I'm thinking this is a trend with McFarlane as his line of sport themed figures all had their own sneaker brands. I can't remember If they were branded officially but I do know they were all unique to the player. Enjoy the pics!

The Walking Dead - Autopsy Zombie

One of the cool things Walking Dead creators managed to do in their series is to add a little personality to their Zombie characters. It gave credence to the dead walkers and individualized what might have been just another generic Zombie horde. Much like this autopsy Zombie figure. Dressed in his work threads, you can get a feeling of what he may have been doing before turning. Less articulation seems to be a running theme with alot of the zombie figures in this line and understandably so. They aren't ninja or special force commandos. Zombies pretty much just drag ass across the television screen as the unturned either run away or chop into them. So I'm cool with the limited articulation. Enjoy the pics!

The Walking Dead - Merle Dixon

Merle Dixon. This was a character I really wanted to like and hoped that at some point he'd turn the corner and join Rick and the others. It never happened and the end result was Merle ultimately turning into a walker. He was still pretty badass, cutting off his own arm to free himself from captivity. This figure kicks ass. I'm getting a kick out of the accessories that come with these WD figures. They are very detailed, much like the figure sculpts. Enjoy the pics!

The Walking Dead - Well Zombie

Nothing says Thanksgiving like a well done, oven basted Well Zombie ! Who's hungry? Look at the detail that was put into this figure. Incredible. I remember the scene well. This guy came apart like a pinata as they pulled him out of a well, early on in the series. The look on T- Dog's face was priceless! 
The figure, while not very poseable, comes with a couple of accessories. Intestines (removable lower half) and what used to be a canned ham. I'll take both, to-go please😝 And check out the attire! I'm guessing Wrangler and not Bugle Boys. Turn him around and you'll see an added extra as they even incorporated the rope that was tied around him to pull him out of the well. Fantastic.

The Walking Dead - Carl Grimes

It took me a while to embrace the character early on in the series but once Carl Grimes came into his own he became one of my favorites.  I kind of figured he'd end up being alot like his dad and to a certain extent ,given his heart and compassion for others, a better version of Rick Grimes. This figure is an earlier representation of the character.

The weathering effect on these figures is top notch. I love the paint apps, especially on the boots and vest/hoodie.

Back To Blogging About Toys!

I know these figures have probably been shown in the past and TWD is kind of a thing of the past. But, not for me it ain't 😉 I'm so digging these figures right now!  I've always been a fan of McFarlane and his sports related figures and these have that same feel, only with more articulation. The amount of detail is insanely cool on these Walking Dead figures. You'll find yourself looking them over, once in hand and out of the packaging, for little logos and other telltale signs specific to each character. I joked about it with GI Jigsaw, when I asked him If he had stuffed the real actors in the box because of how big the package was. But looking at the 3d printed sculpts ,it seems I wasn't that far off. These figures look amazing and Rick Grimes here is no exception. 

Thanks again, GI Jigsaw💥💥💥
