31 Days of Toy Terror Lives: Figure Pack from The Walking Dead Building Sets by McFarlane Toys
Height: Around 2 1/8ths inches
Set includes: 5 figures
Non-Scalper Price: $11 dollars (but look around and you'll find this much, much cheaper. I did.)
Movie Maniacs. While they are slightly articulated buildable figures where you just plug in the limbs and head to the body, they pretty much only look good in one or two poses. Rick's lower body is completely immobile but you can rotate his head and shoulders a bit.
Big Daddy from Land of the Dead? This guy is a standard walker in a blue jumpsuit. He looks pretty cool but is still generic enough that you could have a few of him standing around n a display and it would look OK. Unfortunately, his legs are really awkwardly positioned. He's a real pain to stand upright.
* This guy's a bit better. He's actually my favorite zombie in the set due to the very gruesome blood splatter on the head and chest. He has a great dark wash as well; it really brings out the detail.
These figures do look pretty impressive, I'm just not sure what most toy collectors would do with them. I like the diorama like quality of these but I can't see wanting to army build these. That seems to be what McFarlane is implying with these, but what would you do? They look good and definitely have fairly high production values, although they fall over rather easily. It's a Good set, but I'm just not sure what to do with it.
