Eaglemoss: The Walking Dead and Marvel Cinematic Universe
By Eddie McGuigan
The Eaglemoss range is famous for the detailed and highly collectable model partwork magazines, and their newest ranges are no departure from the quality you’d expect from the people who are bringing us a fantastic Doctor Who and Star Trek range.
Their The Walking Dead range doesn’t mess around making you wait for stars of the show with Rick, Daryl and Michone being in the first wave of figurines. Each is fabulously detailed, not just in likeness but in stature – particularly impressive is the way the sculpt has captured Rick Grime’s unusual, lazy way of holding a gun, or Daryl’s hunched, predatory stance with a crossbow. Michone is, as her character, elegant and beautiful, and each comes on a base which in itself is a work of art, decorated in gory relief with zombies and the remnants of the dead. Completing the first four figures is David Morrisey’s The Governor, resplendent in eye patch with a manic look upon his face. As with their Doctor Who and Star Trek ranges, Eaglemoss have gone all out on detail and these are meticulous and very collectable.
A new range featuring the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is available too, the first of which, again, doesn’t make you wait on a star, with Robert Downey Junior’s Tony Stark, aka, Iron Man standing tall in detailed red and yellow livery with his faceplate missing showing the character’s human face, again, the
detailing with the expression on the face and the poise of the actor’s stance being the most impressive thing about them. With the rest of the Avengers on route, this is another very interesting range to consider.
