Set Name: Zombies Horde
# of Pieces: 74 + manual
Figures included: 6 zombies
Non-Scalper Price: $12-$15 dollars
* This set has a neat utility pole that's falling down. It's a simple build but looks fairly convincing. I like the pieces of cord used to mimic the snapped wires on a falling pole. It's easy to knock this over, so be careful. Granted, since the zombies are an out of control horde, you might want to knock this over to replicate the chaos they're undoubtedly causing.
* The set comes with a spare tire that you can throw around somewhere and two tools, a pick ax and a shovel, that can be stored inside or given to the zombies. The tools fit in their hands, just in case you're interested in some smarter zombies.
* The six zombies are the stars of the set and they're all fairly unique. While they're not as articulated as the standard Call of Duty minifigures, they have some decent articulation for zombies: A swivel waist, swivel shoulders, and a ball jointed head.
* I love the paint work on this guy's face! These are some nifty little zombies and you get a hand full of them. Not much to say but I did want to show everyone off!
* And here's another one!
* At around 2 1/8th inches tall, these are some nicely detailed little figures. The set features a few different headsculpts and torsos that are mixed and matched with differing paint schemes to make everyone seem unique.
* This guy's wearing a short sleeved shirt and some brown slacks. He's also adorned with plenty of blood. Is it his blood or the blood of one of his victims? Who knows? I like that the zombies in these sets aren't overly silly or cartoonish; they're actually fairly creepy.
* Here's another guy in the straitjacket outfit. These really are some fun, solid little minifigures and getting six of them in the set makes for a nice little army.
* These zombies have an odd stance. No, not a bizarre zombie-like lumber to their steps; awkwardly spaced legs. Check out the zombie's legs in the pic here. Unless you really work to spread the zombie's legs, you're only going to get him standing on one stud at an odd angle. You can stretch the legs but that gives the zombies a tendency to pop off which seems like something that shouldn't be happening.
* Another negative thing about the zombies in this set is that they really can't stand on a single row of studs when it's next to a higher level of bricks. See the back of the zombie's ankles in the picture? There's just no way he can stand on a step like that which, unfortunately, means that there's a good bit of useless space on the included base.
