I have to admit, I am seriously Jonesing for a Walking Dead action figure. Evidently the zombie biter, on the right, has a spring-loaded jaw. How perfect is that?
And who wouldn't want a Daryl Dixon doll? Sure, he's a redneck hillbilly and all, but he definitely has moments of humanity, even sweetness. Not to mention a totally bad-ass crossbow. And you have to admit that squirrel belt makes a pretty powerful fashion statement. Go Daryl.
The burning question of the day, though, is at what point do zombies lose their zombieness?
We've all seen completed bisected zombies continue to be a viable threat (at least in their minds), but how far along in the process of natural decomposition can they continue to do so? How much damage can a zombie realistically do if they have lost teeth and hands, even if their brains remain intact? What are they going to do, put you in a leg-hold? Gum you to death?
And then there is the question of putrification of the brain itself. Zombies continue to decompose as time passes. Presumably the brain decomposes at the same rate as the rest of the soft tissue. Does a zombie gradually lose its zombie characteristics as the brain decomposes? How much of the brain must remain intact in order to maintain zombieness?
These are all questions that keep me awake at night.
