But the point I was bringing up is, they do THOSE figures then do them in a set that in all essence a Lego... And Lego's format works as it is. Megablocks mimics it with something I think is more collector-oriented, but Lego is Lego and it works. A figure that can interact in a lot of ways with the set. With these, those figures interact one way, and that's it. It just doesn't make sense.
Like why not just make a scene, and release these figures in those? They may have articulation points, but they're anything but poseable... Face it, any articulation they have is pretty much rendered moot. They're as poseable as a 2002 Star Wars figure was, more or less. The Governor doesn't look right in anything but his lazy boy recliner for instance. Rick looks right shooting, but not much else. Darryl looks right on the chopper and that's it.
If you want nice figures, just buy the 6" line ya know? They're real figures, poseable, hyper detailed... The playsets are neat, but what's the point of making it a "Lego" if you're not going to make it something you can really play with, set up differently, and have figures interact with it in ways besides a specific pose? It's like this is trying real hard to be a detailed McFarlane figure in the realm of a Lego set which doesn't strive for hyper accuracy as much as playability generally.
There was a similar thing with the original LOTR line, and it bombed miserably. Again, had they been basically TWD Mini-figures ala a Lego or Mega Blocks figure, or a Kreo type figure even (Mega Blocks would be my personal choice, as I think they've done amazing things with HALO, COD, etc.), I'd be all in on these I think.
Hell, Megablocks is even doing Zombies better! Army builder packs, scenes of dilapidated buildings and things, all from COD's bonus game.
These are trying to be two different things it seems, and it doesn't work right I guess. I love the TWD 6" line's looks, but I'd have bought into a TWD collectible block figure line of sets and figures, especially if they were a little better/less cute than a Lego figure I guess. I'm always tempted to get a little pack of COD zombies when I pass them, just because I want a little hoard of zombies on my desk.
