Eaglemoss: The Walking Dead and Marvel Cinematic Universe
By Eddie McGuigan

characters-1The 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.

originalTheir 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 sSTK683612__25666_1434661664_1280_1280culpt 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, STK683611__23151_1434661155_1280_1280resplendent 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.

a1A 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.

The Walking Dead – 05×06 – Consumed

Ah Carol. Way back in series 1 she seemed like zombie bait, just a matter of time. But how she’s changed. Other than Rick is there anyone tougher on the show? I think not. This episode is about trying to find Beth, with a trip into the city to search for her, but the focus is on Carol. We find out what happened to her after she was cast out from the Prison and a little of her past. The title of this episode refers to things that are consuming her personally, the most obvious being trying to deal with what happened with the girls last year. But there are a lot of such nods to a things that stretch all the way back to her killings at the prison.
