Entertainment Earth Spotlight: The Walking Dead Negan’s Bat Lucille Replica

It’s not for playing baseball. “Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe.” Negan’s use of the classic nursery rhyme sent chills down the spines of all viewers everywhere during the Season 6 finale of the The Walking Dead TV series, right before he swung his trusted weapon, Lucille, at one of the beloved survivors. This adult roleplay replica of Lucille is crafted to match the exact specifications as the bat carried by Jeffery Dean Morgan, who portrays Negan on AMC’s The Walking Dead. The full-size plastic bat measures approximately 32-inches long and is displayed in AMC’s The Walking Dead-themed window box packaging. The highly detailed bat comes complete with identical markings and barbed wire wrapped barrel end.

Leader of the group known as The Saviors, Negan is one of the most merciless enemies to ever cross paths with Rick Grimes and the other survivors. With no remorse, Negan executes those who get in his way with his weapon of choice, Lucille. With the barrel end wrapped in barbed wire, Lucille is the iconic baseball bat that Negan wields to not only intimidate others, but eliminate them as well.

If you’ve recovered from the season seven debut you can get Lucille now for $29.99.

The Walking Dead S7E1 The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be Review

walking-dead-5 photoAs the members of the group remain helpless, Negan takes action that will forever haunt those who survive.r.

The Walking Dead‘ seventh season debut may be one of the most anticipated season debuts of any show. The sixth season ended with Negan figuring out who will be the one that’ll receive the end of Lucille. The seventh kicks off with Rick swearing he’ll kill Negan as blood sits on his face.

Much like the summer, the episode is all about the build up to what amounts to be a brutal 10 minute span as we find out the victims of Negan’s “justice.”

20 minutes. That’s how long we have to wait to find out who is on the other end of Lucille and it can only be described as brutal and excessive. I remember first reading The Walking Dead #100 and the scene in that comic was so over the top it had me contemplating giving up reading the comic series. What’s portrayed on screen is excessive with an amount of gore that’s kind of shocking to see on television that’s not paid premium channels. It had my stomach churning at the brutality.

What’s impressive is we all knew what was going to happen this episode yet the writers are able to stretch things out and leave us guessing as to what happens next. Death after death as Rick in shock reflects on what his decisions has lead to.

But, what’s interesting is it’s not until almost the one hour mark that we get our main cast talking to each other. For almost the entire hour we’ve had what amounts to a soliloquy by Jeffrey Dean Morgan who channels Negan with a fury and messed up charm that makes it all gripping.

But, even though it’s gripping, it’s sound and fury signifying nothing.

I don’t know what it is about the episode. I was enthralled to see who was killed, but when that moment comes and goes it feels empty. Shock for shock’s sake. It’s not until the final minutes of the show the real emotion hits as Maggie, Rick, and the rest of the survivors begin to talk and react to what’s happened. And in that moment it shows off the heart of the sow. It’s not about the shock. It’s not about grossness. It’s about these characters and their relationships. It’s about the humans of this world and how they survive through it all.

The episode wasn’t quite the tour de force that I was hoping for, but it’s a hell of a start that sets the seventh season off on one hell of a journey.

The Walking Dead: March to War Comes to iOS and Android in 2017

the-walking-dead-march-to-warSkybound has teamed with Disruptor Beam for an all-new multiplayer, story-driven strategy game for iOS and Android in 2017.

In The Walking Dead: March to War players must fight alongside and against others for control of scarce resources in and around a devastated Washington D.C., while fending off walkers and attempting to rebuild society. As the leader of a group of survivors, each player will assemble a team including a council of well-known characters from The Walking Dead such as Rick, Michonne, and Negan. Faced with an ongoing series of moral choices, players will defend their camp against hoards of walkers and, the bigger threat, other survivors. Inspired by the stark look of The Walking Dead comics, March to War will feature rich 3D graphics unlike anything seen in other The Walking Dead or strategy mobile games.

The game will be free-to-play and will be released on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

TV Review: Fear the Walking Dead S2E15 North

fear-the-walking-dead-posterIn the second-season finale, Travis’ rage causes unrest at the RBH; and Madison must decide if she will stand by Travis. Meanwhile, Nick takes on leadership of the Colonia as Narcos close in.

Fear the Walking Dead shakes things up with the second of the two-part season finale as Travis’ actions causes Madison to have to make a choice as to what to do and then there’s Nick and Colonia, with those drug dealers closing in.

Shit goes down at the hotel which shakes things up and forces Travis and Madison to take off, but they also head out to find Nick and like the last episode this one is split into two parts but the exact opposite is the focus. Nick takes center stage and his role with Colonia.

The hour was action packed and pretty damn gory. As a clash between the Colonia crew and Narcos was coming it was a question whether they should fight or run and the latter is chosen with Nick taking over as leader of the group… which doesn’t go well at all.

The episode is about decisions and consequences and also ramping things up. While it’s the zombie apocalypse, but the need to kill, and kill humans, hasn’t been there as much, but this episode and the previous one feels like a switch has happened. The show has no problem killing characters, and they kill off some big ones here. There isn’t quite the same connection as with its sister series, so the killing of characters can come fiercely and quickly, like it has here. And some of it comes quick and in unexpected ways.

And that ending! Didn’t see that coming at all and I don’t want to spoil things, but who opened fire? Is this the US government? Is this Minutemen-ish people? We’ll have to wait until next season to find out, but it looks like we’ll finally see what’s going on in the US!

TV Review: Fear the Walking Dead S2E14 Wrath

fear-the-walking-dead-posterTravis is blindsided by new refugees at the hotel. Meanwhile, Nick must make the decision to leave Colonia or stay with Luciana.

Fear the Walking Dead begins to wrap its second season with the first of two episodes and boy is there a lot to cover in the final two hours of the season.

Wrath continues to be broken up into two parts with part focused on the hotel and the other part of Colonia, both of which bring a decent amount of drama and tension.

The big part of the show is the fate of Chris which Travis finds out from the two individuals they spent time with in the season. We get the news of what happened and I’m not going to ruin it, but with the actor who plays Chris also currently on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. it’s no surprise as to the news. But, what’s interesting is what Travis does and the actual truth to it all. It’s a brutal scene full of cathartic rage and one that’s not unjustified. Much of the season has been void of the brutal violence we’ve seen in its sister series, but the entire season has built up to this moment and the question is, where does it and Travis go from there?

Then there’s Nick and Colonia where the truth of things are revealed, though that’s not the main point of the episode. The main point is Travis’ actions and what he does when he finds out about the truth of his son. It’s a hell of an ending to the episode and will absolutely change things going forward.
