McFarlane Toys just keeps on impressing me. Back in the day, I avoided this company like the plague. I thought the figures were oversculpted, oversexed, and way too gory. But lately I've changed my tune completely. It's not just these modern figures like Walking Dead and Halo either, I've backtracked and now own plenty of vintage 90's figures that I love. The Walking Dead season 4 is about to premiere in a few weeks and I am very excited, but not as excited as I was to find this second female at Walgreens this week. Andrea was one of my favorite characters in previous seasons. A lot of people really didn't care for her. She made very odd decisions and it was always hard to tell where her loyalties were. But overall I viewed her as tough, competent, and a very interesting character to be roaming around with the gang. In the first few episodes she could barely hold a gun, but by the end of season three she was one of the most formidable people on the show. Let's check out this great figure of Andrea below!
The likeness to actress Laurie Holden is good, but not nearly as good as some of the other characters in the line. I personally feel the likeness is better in profile than straight-on.
Andrea came with a lot of great accessories. 1.) A Vest 2.) A Pitchfork 3.) A Handgun and 4.) A Rifle.
The vest fits perfectly. It's not bulky or cumbersome like other rubbery clothing you find on action figures these days. The Rifle is nice, but seems like it might have been made for another character because it's difficult for her to hold properly or even sling over her shoulder.
The handgun is probably the best accessory because she can hold it so well. It also fits snugly into her holster (which is permanently attached to her thigh).
The pitchfork is really cool, but suffers the same critique as the rifle because her hands can barely hold on to the thick handle.
Here are an assortment of stills from the show.
She's wearing the vest!
And who can forget Laurie Holden as Officer Bennett from Silent Hill!
