@Therapist~ This series is better than the last two. The articulation is better, but still lacking. The sculpts are nice, and I like the paint and detail. I did pass on the Autopsy Zombie because I thought it looked like crap, but I will get it at some point to complete the wave. The new Michonne and Merle figures are articulated at the hips and Michonne actually has, gasp, torso articulation! I really, really like the two pet zombie figures just for looks. They are the standout in my opinion. I think these figures really stretch the term "action" figure. Maybe inaction figures. At least they did away with the gimmicks for this series.

My biggest complaint is outside of the crappy articulation and somewhat high price, the figures in the line are very hard to stand up. Oddly, the two pet zombie figures come with a base and foot peg holes. Probably to help them stand, as they have to support the bags they can carry. I just wish all the figures had holes for pegs. Guess that's one of the reasons I recently bought a rotary tool. [smilie=fixtit.gif]

I am a big fan of the books and show, so my opinion may be a bit skewed.

@Kenm2474-Therapist is talking about his boots, belt, gloves and straps around his shoulders. They are too light and not comic accurate. Look at the colors on the non variant and the MU figure. They are a better representation of the character as depicted in the comics. Really, you'd need to buy both figures and switch out the shield to have a "true" version. That being said, I am working on a mash up of three figures that I will post once my variant Steve Rogers arrives in the mail next week. If you are getting these figures off eBay Ken2474, we are probably bidding on some of the same stuff, lol.

Ultimate Cap and US Agent arrived in the mail today and I picked up The Walking Dead Well Zombie, Marvel Legends Banshee and the Marvel Select Abomination today. The A-Bomb is an amazing figure when it comes to sculpt and detail/paint. Wow! I had to pass on MS Rhino and Venom as A-Bomb just caught my eye. The other two are great looking figures. MS really turns out some good figures from time to time.

I also picked up a book called Write or Wrong by a native of Toledo, Dirk Manning. He was doing a signing of the book at the local comic book shop. It's about breaking into the comics industry as a writer. I didn't get a chance to meet him because I stopped in before he was there, but I did get a signed copy.

Stopped at TRU and Suncoast today in hopes of finding the Portal Chell figures, but, as usual, no luck. I did pick up the New 52 Hawkman today, and WOW, what a truly incredible figure. Can't recommend picking him up enough. Was a little upset paying $20 for it, but it's definitely worth it. Also, I found a Danny Phantom figure that's pretty awesome. I had to get it in honor of my childhood. Both are very great figures. If anyone spots the Portal Chell figure, PLEASE let me know.

I saw that Hawk man at Target, thought he was cool, except for the constipated look on his face :badgrin: . I found 3 of the unmasked Walmart exclusive Andrew Garfield Spider mans at Walmart (of course it was Walmart :roll: ) I bought them all. I hope they don't think I'm a scalper :razz: .
