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 Charger was a bit of a challenge. He needed to be BIG, but only about half the size of the tank. I tried a lot of different part combos before I settled on this design, deciding the torn COBRA blue jumpsuit was a good analog for the torn over-alls of the L4D2 Charger. I intentionally chose an extremely undersized arm for his left limb, to exaggerate the look of a severely atrophied appendage.
