In honor of new episodes starting up again this past Sunday, I wanted to review the third amazing lady in the McFarlane Toys The Walking Dead (TV Series) line so far. This show has a surprising amount of fantastic female characters. My future wants are Carol and Sasha. And judging by the momentum that show and toy line is currently holding, I think there's a very good chance we'll see both of them in the next few years. Maggie Greene is the tomboyish farmer's daughter (of Hershel) introduced early in Season 2. I was instantly intrigued by her character. She was strong, self-sufficient, a bit rebellious, and smart. Over the course of the next few seasons we've seen her grow into one of the most formidable characters on the show. If I had to pick a crew for a supply run into walker territory, Maggie would definitely be on my list. McFarlane has hit yet another figure out of the park. While the likeness isn't perfect, she's still instantly recognizable to any fan of the show. Let's check out Maggie below!
I'm not usually a fan of blood spatter on my action figures, but I'm making an exception for these toys. I still don't want any of the actual walkers in my collection though. (You know, just in case my collection goes all Toy Story on me in the middle of the night)
Maggie comes with a big blade, a handgun, and an automatic rifle. Note the shape of the rifle strap, I make mention of it below.
The knife and gun fit nicely into her holsters (which are permanently fixed to the figure).
McFarlane's The Walking Dead series (both comic and television) have revolutionized the highly-articulated true-to-life figure realm. The jeans are just amazing. They have all the articulation you could want with almost invisible seams.
The rifle strap is extremely confusing to me. It seems pre-molded to lay across her body in a certain way, but I can't make it look like it's not defying gravity and I was unable to find any hints online.
Here are some pictures of Lauren Cohan as Maggie Greene from the AMC's The Walking Dead.
Time for some Comparison Pics!
Michonne, Maggie and Andrea all look great together, but I'm noticing in the pic that their scales seen to vary a bit. I would tend to think that Maggie was taller than Michonne in real life.
