NECA Grindhouse: Dakota...

Without a doubt, the most lackluster figure from NECA's Planet Terror line up was Doctor Dakota Block. Articulation is something that has never been an issue with Yours Truly (if it was, I sure as hell wouldn't collect anything from either NECA or McFarlane). However, one of my main gripes has always been accessories that refuse to attach themselves to their intended parts (in this case, Dakota's syringe shooting thingamajig is a real kick in the testicles to even put together, much less fit in her teeny, tiny hand), and figures that just won't stand up straight (Dakota stands off kilter on her base, making her appear to be swaying like Amy Winehouse on a four day bender).




The head sculpt on this figure is, to put it as mildly as possible, a goddamn Greek tragedy. Aside from Her Village of the Damned hair color, Dakota's blank, eye bulging stare looks more suited for one of the zombies chasing after her, than it does for our pretty heroine...
(Waving my hand in front of her face... snapping fingers) "Yoo hoo. Dakota..? Anybody Home..? Earth to Dakota..."
