Have you checked out the larger McFarlane figures? I decided to collect those instead. The likeness, portraits IMO are way better. Michonne is dead-on.

I used to be a big McFarlane fan. I just cant collect figures. I thought about it with those and the Neca LOTR pieces. Same for Hot Toys. After collecting statues I gotta stick with that. Its just a personal preference.

I went from figures to statues. Was a statue snob for a while. But I started dipping back into figures again. Mainly because of the WD ones. They are so nice! I also collect Hot Toys which are amazing. I might switch to more Hot Toys soon. I wish they would do more female pieces.

Oh yea nothing against them. I used to have shelves and boxes of figures. But after having almost every Bowen piece, Gentle Giant, Master Replicas etc I have decided that my favorite pieces are 1/4 statues. So I have rededicated my collection to those.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Any interested in Maggie check out Gamestop for deals. Its not available online, but if there is a store near you its crazy selling for $65. Michonne as well.

I paid way more than that. What's with gamestop regular price of $129.97 which is way below Gentle Giants original price?
Some one must be making a loss.

It is good statue, that looks different to the one pictured (the factory changed the face for some reason?)

Checking out my statues today, I paid extra attention to Maggie Greene, probably because
I’ve returned this week to watching The Walking Dead (Season 5 to be precise). It really is
an excellent statue, that hasn’t aged a bit, and manages to look better than some of the
more recent reveals.

I remember when Maggie first showed up, and many were horrified by Gentle Giants
alterations when compared to the prototype. The eyes were larger, the skin colour darker,
and to top it all, the first image to appear had been taken by someone with mobile phone
camera holding it too close to Maggie’s face. A mini meltdown ensued.

Just thought I’d share
