Who doesn't love the Left 4 Dead games? With the recently release of the Cold Stream DLC, Valve is continuing to service the fans of the hit franchise. If you're one of those big time fans, then you will definitely want this Boomer action figure available over at ThinkGeek.com.
This 7'' tall action figure is one of our favorite zombies to shoot from far away, but never want to get up close to. What makes it unique in its own L4D way, is that you can take the figure apart and see all of the disgusting insides of our resident zombie fat man.
For only $19.99, this collectible figure can be yours. Place it on your window, your desk, on top of your XBox, or any other place you can think of.
When the planet inevitably descends into a hell-fire storm full of zombies, the three things that carry over from our dead culture will be: militaristic tendencies, the importance of a solid cardio workout, and runway fashion. And, when it comes to runway fashion, nothing spews 'in' like the Boomer. Master of the gurgling shamble, the catwalk hasn't seen elegance or experienced class like the Boomer. But, sadly, just like our current fashion scene, its only mimicry that reaches those of us outside the golden Rodeo Drive walls. And the best of that mimicry is 7" tall and has detachable guts, you know, for when swimsuit season rolls around.
A Left 4 Dead icon, the Boomer isn't the most directly threatening abomination, but it is easily the grossest and most passively deadly of them. Any horrifyingly obese creature that has the audacity to hobble head first into a double barreled shotgun while vomiting gallons of bowel-wrenching, zombie-attracting acid has got some guts, (that may or may not be detachable, as previously mentioned).
For this 7" beast, it isn't enough that the level of flexibility and articulation borders on creepily realistic, it had to be taken a step further. In Left 4 Dead, when the Boomer has had its way and it feels content with the life it has lived, it explodes, splitting horizontally at the waist, creating a cratered pool of its own intestinal juices. But, for legal reasons, no zombie-attracting gut rot was included, nor does this Boomer explode in anyway, but it can split down the middle revealing a disaster of a lower abdomen. Ahhh, magnificent.
