McFARLANE TOYS - THE WALKING DEAD - DEPUTY RICK GRIMES & BICYCLE GIRL ZOMBIE

I originally wasn't going to pick up any of the Walking Dead figures, but this pair just makes the perfect representation of figures from this show in my collection.

I had always been tempted to buy a few-- but you have to say no to some things. There's only so much room to display stuff. But when I saw how Rick was packaged (with his revolver aimed down and his head tilted), and then saw this zombie girl figure on the peg behind him, the scene of how to display these two together just popped in my head and I though that if I was going to have any Walking Dead figures in my collection, these are the two I want. They just work so well together...

For now they sit on my art desk, but I'll find a more permanent spot for them eventually.

There's a lever on the base of the zombie that makes her "crawl"-- which is actually a neat feature-- but when it's not pressed, it lays kinda flat. So, I wedged something into the lever so that it stays pressed and the zombie keeps the pose shown here.

    1. Thanks!

      This isn't much a set up though... Just sat them on my work desk and took some pics.

      Best of luck with your backgrounds! Sounds like fun!

    1. They just re-issued the Rick figure as an exclusive at Walgreens-- of all places. Only, for some reason, he does not come with the hat.
