didn't see the first batch, mashups of COBRA soldiers from GI Joe with the Zombies from Left4Dead. It's a fun project to keep me busy while I plan out more complicated figures, and a nice way to use up fodder that might not otherwise be utilized. I gave myself a rough "no buying new parts for zombies" rule for my first two batches, but after 10 or so I might need to replenish some parts. I don't think this batch is dynamic as the first, mainly because I think the L4D1 designs were more visually interesting than the L4D2 designs (and this batch is mostly L4D2 infected).
The Jockey isn't super articulated, as I felt it was more important to get his hunch-backed appearance and make him in a pose where he could cling to another figure. Another one I really struggled with in the planning stages, but after the first few pieces were figured out he really came together. I couldn't decide how to make him look like a COBRA, so I went the other way and just made him buck nekkid! I figured a zombie who tries to climb up your back and ride you like a bull machine could only be scarier if he wasn't wearing pants.
