Great except for the face!
on 10 April 2014
This is a lovely model with great detail - especially on the bike. The detail on that is excellent! Daryl's clothes and body are fine too, except that to get him looking his best takes a bit of fiddling with his legs and feet to find a 'natural' pose that looks good. I have him standing slightly sideways with one leg positioned forward, holding his knife and crossbow. Tried to sit him on the bike but he just won't fit right on the seat and his feet and arms just wouldn't go in the right places whatever I did. So he ended up just standing next to his bike on the shelf.
The big niggle with this model (and what disappointed me considerably when I first opened it) is Daryl's actual face. It doesn't really look like him as much as it should, considering it was made supposedly from a 3D scan of Norman Reedus. Something went a bit wrong somewhere! He looks rather more like Charles Bronson. The face just isn't right and it's a shame because the rest of him is very good. If you can get over that and maybe look at him from a bit of a distance and in profile, you might be happy enough with it. It IS definitely better than some of the other Daryl models out there who look even LESS like him!
