The Walking Dead: Comic Rick Grimes

When I found The Walking Dead figures at Toys R Us, I slowly looked through them for Rick Grimes.  I found the black/white version of him.  My mind spun a little.  Hmmm, $20, I don't think so...  but ok, the chase black/white version (found only at TRU) might be worth it.  I have a hard time wanting a color comic action figure of a black and white comic.  So, I bit the bullet and purchased him knowing that I could return him if I wanted to.

Rick Grimes, star of The Walking Dead in comics and on AMC ( AMC's The Walking Dead ), is a bad-ass   No one can deny that.  He may make selfish decisions at times, but who wouldn't during the zombie apocalypse.  If you like graphic novels and/or comics and you enjoy a good zombie infection, you NEED to read this series.  Most of the series has been published in trades and can be found on The Walking Dead Trades.  A lot of the series deals with how human society and morals break down.  The evil potential of mankind is a scary thing.

Now let's get onto the McFarlane Toys figure.  First, I was shocked at the size.  I expected a larger figure.  Instead he was a little smaller than a Halo Spartan.  Perhaps it was noted somewhere when they were solicited, but I didn't catch it.  Rick Grimes himself boasts 23 points of articulation.  I honestly didn't count the joints.  He has plenty of movement, although I want him to hold the shotgun properly with two hands and he cannot.  His joints don't have that kind of range.  I am also against figures that have a pre-posed sculpt, which his left leg has.  It isn't terrible, but it has it.  His pistol has a holster!  His hand axe has a spot on his leg!  Those are both huge pluses.  All of his shotguns fit in his "golf" bag.  Love it.  I am not on board to pick up any more at the current retail price, but he is definitely a well done figure.  The zombies look like a lot of fun!

  1. While the quality is all Rolex, the case is about as basic as replica watches can get away with compared to other more expensive timepieces produced by the Swiss brand. There is at least one, reason, someone likes the replica watches and the style and is an individual and free to make their own decisions without input from the peanut gallery. This is good news for those looking to buy a brand new, rolex replica sale that want any of the original four colors. But only if you would like hublot replica fun filled holiday break retreat all around 2018 replica watches which includes a little education performed all around, will probably invest each and every day and as well probably none although a couple traveling qualifications combined for the many museums already in the market.
