Gentle Giant The Walking Dead Rick Grimes Mini-Bust Review

Another piece from Gentle Giant that arrived a few days after my Avengers Iron Man mini-bust was the Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead mini-bust!! WOW!! What an incredible run by Gentle Giant, every last piece I have received have had such incredible detail, design, and dastardly good shelf-poses! (From Gentle Giant’s website) “Imagine waking up one day and discovering that you’d missed the Apocalypse. That’s what happened to Rick Grimes. Once a Sheriff’s Department Deputy, he fell into a coma after being wounded in the line of duty. Upon waking up, he finds his town in ruins,  his family missing and the dead walking the Earth. Determined to survive, Rick must adapt to the new world around him. Difficult challenges face  him and his band of refugees as they struggle against impossible odds for their lives…and their humanity.” Gentle Giant also states the utterly correct phrase “boast(ing) an exact likeness of actor Andrew Lincoln in his Sheriff’s uniform as he appears in the pilot (episode)”. The absolute amazing detail and design put into this work is incredible. From his equipment belt featuring his walkie-talkie, and holsters for magazines, to the Sheriff badges and patches on his uniform, (which include his name and department), the revolver in hand with the likeness from the show, even his beard as Rick wakes up to in the pilot episode; the shadow and his expression showing the fear and skepticism when he first steps into the world of the Walkers. The Gentle Giant exclusive direct version also comes with his hat! The hat is removable and includes his Sheriff logo, as well as the screen-design of the shape and features. Roughly 6.5″ tall, this piece exaggerates more space with his right arm extended out, holding the revolver, aiming at a possible Walker or troublesome living; while his left arm hangs from the other side, fingers in the rolling position anticipating the next gun shot! For any fan of The Walking Dead, the Rick Grimes mini-bust must be added! Put him up read to fend off incoming Walkers, and soon you can purchase Daryl to be ready by his side! (I apologize in advance for the poor quality photos, I had to use my Iphone5 instead of my DSLR)
