At $18, it's about right in

At $18, it's about right in terms of price for a comic book/video game toy like what NECA does. The only problem being this figure is also about HALF THE SIZE. Yeah, that's way too much for so little plastic.

Also, it looks like his right hand's wrapped up with a strip of bacon.

You know, it is really sad

You know, it is really sad that a figure can have worse QC, articulation, and sculpting than a NECA figure....

Of course, wrapping your hand in bacon is the best way to sneak around and survive the zombie outbreak. The zombies would be too confused to do anything. Plus, bacon rocks.

All things considered, I may end up picking this up anyway. Maybe the show version will be better.

WOW. What, did they hire

WOW. What, did they hire someone who didn't know how to make articulation? I've seen articulation hidden better on a 3 3/4 figure. What's even more amazing is that the articulation is mostly useless! It's just astounding that a major toy company can put this out and call it a finished product. Plenty of companies out there that can make a fine, statue looking figure with well hidden and FUNCTIONING articulation. Dunno why this one came out this way.

Sadly, pass

I've been collecting *everything* Walking Dead, from individual issues, hardcovers, variant covers, to t-shirts, to bookmarks... I even bought the statues, even though I hate statues! I've been on board since 2004, and even then, people were asking about figures from this series, and almost every one who asked for them screamed "3 3/4-inch scale!" as well.

These, even though I planned on getting them all, I'm passing! My Rick figure came apart right out of the box at the hips, and the paint work on these is really, really bad. This is, at best, a $6 figure, and it's insulting it's almost $18!

I don't know why these and the Dr. Who toys are this weird scale that doesn't work with anything else, except maybe Toy Biz's Marvel Universe line from the 90s. It's hurting the sales of both lines big-time in the US. A lot of shops are reluctant to order Spawn/McFarlane Toys for many, many years because of cost & QC.

Yeah, maybe it is time to dump all the Walking Dead merch I've accumulated over the last 7 years. Maybe I won't let these poor toys color my opinion of a comic I've loved for so many years now. Maybe I'll buy these when they're in the dollar bin at my local comic shop next year. Maybe
