Daryl is on his way in pieces

I ordered a Daryl Dixon head and a body, from two separate sellers. The complete, dressed Daryl was too expensive, so I looked for nude Daryls and Daryl parts. The outfit doesn't interest me, but the crossbow I probably will buy later.

It's been ages since I watched the TV show The Walking Dead, but the last time I watched, Daryl's hair was long and his face was mostly hidden behind it. I chose a head, one of the many variations available, that looks like the Daryl from the first few seasons, with shorter hair.

It is a very good likeness in the picture. I hope my ordered head will look the same. And that it will fit on the body! I don't know a lot about modern male action figure bodies, but I relied on a photo of a complete Daryl to make my choice. Fingers crossed!

The head is from DamToys

Norman Reedus as Daryl in The Walking Dead. He used to be a fashion model in the nineties, so maybe his mini-me will pose like a professional too ;-).


The body is from Coomodel. It comes with a set of 7 extra hands and a piece for heads without a neck. The feet are also articulated!


I ordered from China, so it will take some weeks before the pieces arrive.

  1. I haven't seen The Walking Dead. I rarely watch any TV series. The last one I saw was Stranger Things. And I'm not into action figures or something like that. But if I had to decide which movie character I'd like to have as a doll it would be Eric Draven from The Crow, a resin BJD D.I.M Minimee.

    1. Hello Nana, I hope Daryl will fit with my female dolls, for pictures and as a fashion model. I don't know Stranger Things, I will look it up! I don't have cable, digital TV or Netflix, so I watch everything on DVD. I'm usually behind on the recent shows at least a year, or two. I haven't seen The Crow, but know the character Eric Draven of course. I didn't know D.I.M. made him, but it's a cool character! There is also a Daryl mini-me in resin, I think that was a special group order, he's very realistic looking :-).

  2. I hope your order will come fast. I'm very curious your opinion on this body. I love articulation of this body and I wonder if it fits Taeyang head ;)
    And of course I can't wait to see whole character made by you :)

    1. Hello Balbinka, the body is sent without tracking, so I think it will take quite some time before it gets here unfortunately. On the pictures of the seller it poses very good, so I think it will be a great body :-). I also ordered a body with a neck (but don't have a head for it yet), and maybe that will be better for Taeyang because the joints on the other body are very visible around the neck area. The other body doesn't have articulated toes but also good overall articulation. I will review both bodies when I have them. And Daryl will get a review too, of course! :-)

  5. I hope everything will be just as you expect it to be. :) Daryl was my favourite character while I was watching Walking Dead. I liked sesons one and two. Then I stopped.

    1. Hello Kamelia, I hope so too :-). I watched until season 4, but after that season I stopped too. I didn't like where the story was going anymore. I like the other show better: Fear The Walking Dead (not so much violence and interesting characters).

    2. It's sad, they can ruin such a good series. I don't watch Fear The WD, maybe I'll try. Now I'm trying to finish Gotham but season 3 is also very, very hard to watch... On the other hand I watch The Magnificent Century - It's a little bit boring, but costumes are incredible! :D

    3. Hi Kamelia, I watched one season of Gotham but stopped. I didn't like it, but the Penguin, Mr Cobblepot actor plays his role brilliantly in my opinion :-). I don't know Magnificent Century, I will look it up, I love beautiful movie costumes!

  6. Hello Millie
    I wanted to check out your blog having seen your latest pics on Flikr :-))) Your very top post caught my attention! I really like this head (such a great expression, so characterful!) and the body looks very harmonious in terms of action figure bodies. I have looked at a lot of action figure bodies too but it is a whole mysterious other world to me (so far my male dolls are all IT Hommes!) . I am very very curious to see how he looks alongside your FR and IT ladies as I would probably like to get an action figure too - provided he is tall enough for my girls! Having said that, I like photographing my guys without girls too so in the end his height might not be a deal-breaker...
    Looking forward to seeing the completed body when it all arrives!
    Big dolly hugs!

    1. Hey Jocelyn, how nice to meet you here as well! :-) If the head looks the same as in the pictures it will be awesome, the skin and features are so detailed! There is so much choice in bodies that it's overwhelming, but I looked for a cheap body so that was not so difficult :-). The body is the "narrow shoulders" type, I don't want Daryl to look like a bodybuilder lol! I think the IT girls will be taller, especially the twin sisters. But for pictures that won't be a problem I think, and maybe the girls really like guys that are shorter than themselves ;-D. I have my eye on IT's Kyle Spencer from Coven, but I wanted to try Daryl first as a companion for the girls. I hope everything arrives in a reasonable time! Big dolly hugs back :-)
