The McFarlane Toys, The Walking Dead Daryl Dixon 10” Figure: A Faithful Recreation of a Fan FavoriteJanuary 27, 2014
We decided to follow up our look at some of the hottest recent McFarlane Toys releases by zeroing in on whats quickly become one of our favorites.
Feast your eyes on the McFarlane Toys, The Walking Dead Daryl Dixon 10 figure inspired by AMCs wildly popular zombie-filled TV saga. This deluxe action figure features the authentic likeness of the post-apocalyptic survivalist, which it owes to a pre-production 3D scan of actor, Norman Reedus. The articulation is limited to the shoulder joints (making it more of a statue than an action figure), but its easily one of the best Walking Dead collectibles available.
Beyond the screen-accurate visage, MacFarlane Toys has done an admirable job of recreating the reluctant heros familiar accouterments. Out of the box, Daryl comes decked out in his signature angel wing biker vest. Its molded but removable, and the simulated stitching and weathering show an impressive degree of detail. The figure also comes with a poncho that fits over the vest and jacket. Its beautifully crafted like everything else in the package, but it would have been better (and more easily donned and doffed) were it made of cloth rather than vinyl.
Its evident that McFarlane Toys put special attention toward faithfully recreating Daryls weapons. In addition to the hunting knife and sheath that the figure comes with, the crossbow and extra bolts are really well done. It can be a challenge to get the weapons into Daryl’s hands, but ultimately, the display is worth the effort.
For fans of The Walking Dead with a penchant for collecting, the McFarlane Toys, Daryl Dixon 10 figure is a must-have. Its highly recommend and one of our favorites. We cant wait for more from McFarlanes creative team, but for now check out more shots of Daryl below.
