Finally though, I had to admit defeat. I'd made a three hour round trip drive looking for her by this time. Clearly, I wasn't going to find her. So I swallowed my pride and headed to eBay. There, for a surprisingly affordable price (I think it was $15), I found an auction I was willing to take a chance on.
Carol comes with a knife that has a brass knuckles-style grip, a small pistol, and a gas can. Her articulation is pretty much identical to Daryl's, but her shoulder joints are a little bit limited by the surrounding sculpting from her coat.
|They also are a little hard to find props in scale for. Tiny crate or giant kitty? YOU decide!|
Clearly, I had to have a Carol once I had a Daryl. I love how close these two characters have grown since season 2 of the show, and the figures are gorgeous.
I've made a little campsite diorama on the side table in my room, and after he shook down those little World Peacekeepers figures for their tent and supplies awhile back, Daryl's been hanging out there. Sometimes KITT comes by and sits with him. Sometimes Rocket sneaks in and vandalizes things. But today we're talking about Carol's arrival.
Daryl: Can I move yet? I ain't got a dang hot pad fer this blasted kettle!
Carol: I can't..! I can't believe you're here! You've been here this whole time!?
Carol: I hope you know how that sounds.
Daryl: I reckon it sounds plumb crazy 'til you done seen 'em. Big thangs. W' ray guns an' th' like.
Carol: I hope you know how THAT sounds.
Daryl: An' that dang thang done stoled m' bow!
Carol: Let's just agree that we'll watch out for them.
