First up is Alexis, and what more can I say than hubba, hubba, hubba! She has the most spectacular rack I've seen on many a figure. Her nipples stand proud and firm. I don't mind nips that I can hang my hat on but when I can hang my umbrella on them, well...! Okay, okay, smutty comments over but feel free to add your own. Alexis has the look of a savage about her and would not be out of place in a barbarian fantasy setting, although I think she works perfectly well in a post-apocalyptic world. I think she'd be quite at home amongst the Glaswegian headbangers from the film Doomsday. I know the critics slagged this film off but I loved it. Her hair is wild and unkempt. That white bit is a streak in her hair, not a feather, whilst the blue bit is a headband. Have you noticed that her trousers are not buttoned/zipped up all the way? That's just asking for trouble! Her choice of footwear are heavy biker's boots. Her only weapon is a two-handed axe, but just look at the muscles on her arms, particularly in the second photo. I reckon she could crush a man's skull easily. Heck, I bet she could crush a man's skull in her cleavage! Alexis stands 35mm tall from sole of feet to top of head.
In the centre of the group is a dude known only as Rasta Bodyguard. It is with figures like this guy that I really don't mind them being oversized. If he was true 28mm scale he wouldn't look quite so menacing or intimidating. This brute, however, looks as hard as nails and as intimidating as you can get. Check out that scowl. The size of his holsters suggests he is carrying two of the most powerful handguns in the world - real Big Ass Pistols. As if they weren't bad enough he has a couple of human skulls dangling from his belt. You can just see the intimidation factor going up and up. God knows what is in the pouches on the back of his belt. You'd think it would be ammo clips for his pistols but to be honest it could be almost anything. If you're looking for a figure that screams, "don't fuck with me!" then look no further! He stands 39mm tall from sole of feet to top of head.
The third and last figure of this group is Top Hat, a rather apt name given his choice of headwear. He wouldn't look too out of place in a Wild West setting. His rifle is fitted with a ginormous telescopic sight. The only time I've seen sights as long as this was in the film The Outlaw Josey Wales when Josey teaches Jamie what a "Missouri boat ride" is! As an aside, I rate The Outlaw Josey Wales as my all time favourite Clint Eastwood movie. So, back to Top Hat. I have no idea what make the rifle is but it has a very wide barrel! This is a figure that is full of character. Note how the wind is blowing his hair and has caught the flap of his long coat. I think he's a great figure. He measures 39mm from the sole of his feet to the top of his hat. Bear in mind, the top hat adds quite a bit to his overall height.
Once the world has collapsed and civilisation has disintegrated in a zombie apocalypse, these are the kind of folks I'd expect to see. Every one of them looks more than capable of surviving in a post-apoc world and they are extremely well sculpted by Jim Bowen, even if they are on the tall side. Their height does not bother me as I like to see a mixture of heights amongst my figures. Each figure costs a very reasonable £2.50. I've included the website address for Four A Minis in the sidebar listing of my favourite websites. In my next post I'll be getting back to reviewing zombies - yay!
