The Walking Dead!

Postby Cherry Bomb » Fri Feb 11, 2011 11:36 am

McFarlane Toys has secured the rights to make figures based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic series AND television series. They have announced the lineup for the first two series. Series one will feature characters in their comic book form and series two will feature characters as they appear in the television series.

Series 1:
Officer Rick Grimes
Michonne
Zombie Lurker
Zombie Roamer

Series 2:
Deputy Rick Grimes
Daryl Dixon
Zombie Walker
Zombie Biter

Each human figure includes multiple interchangeable accessories and several points of articulation for limitless possibility and customization. Each zombie figure features unique, gory, play action such as exploding heads and removable limbs. Figures are expected to sell for around $14.99 at retailers nationwide.

Sadly their production toys never ever look as good as the prototypes they show.

Can't wait for these. Going to buy multiple sets of these when they come out. Hopefully McFarlane makes these the next Halo where we get like 10+ lines of figures. Think of all the zombies that could be made!

...Yeah, I don't remember that... 8)

Besides, I'm more of a Freddy guy anyway...

Every series is like interchanging with the first line being comic based, the second being show based, the third being comic based, etc

2 humans and 2 zombies in each line.

Can't wait for these, hopefully they have as much articulation as the Halo figures.

They look sweet, i might have to pick a few up for the missus, although she hasn't watched the show, she is obsessed with zombies.

Series 1 looks great. For the first time I'm actually excited for action features on a toy!

Series 2's Rick's head looks off but it may be the picture. Dixon and the zombies look amazing though!
