Thursday, June 23, 2011
Sharpen up your survival skills, McFarlane Toys is introducing a new line of figures inspired by the highly acclaimed AMC television show, The Walking Dead. The TV series, adapted from the The Walking Dead comic book series, follows a group of survivors, led by Deputy Rick Grimes, as they travel in search of a safe and secure home after a zombie apocalypse.
The Walking Dead TV Series 1 introduces four gruesomely realistic 6-inch figures based on the unforgettable humans and zombies from AMC’s original drama. This debut series will be shambling into Toys "R" Us and comic book stores nationwide this November. Now board up the windows and don't make a sound, because we’re taking a closer look at this brains-obsessed lineup.
Deputy Rick Grimes
After waking from a coma in an abandoned hospital, deputy Rick Grimes finds the world he knew gone -- ravaged by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions. Our figure of Rick features the exact likeness of the actor, taken from a 3D scan of Andrew Lincoln himself. The figure comes with a revolver, shotgun, walkie talkie, baseball bat, and hand grenade accessories.
An abrasive survivalist, and brother of the outspoken racist Merle, Daryl Dixon is an all-new character created specifically for the hit AMC television show. Our figure of Daryl features the exact likeness of the actor, taken from a 3D scan of Norman Reedus himself. Figure comes with crossbow, hunting knife, fire axe, pick axe, and even a string of squirrels.
This memorable zombie, clad in a dirty business suit, was encountered by Rick during his first excursion into Atlanta. Upon Rick's arrival, the walker rose from the wreckage of a city bus and followed Rick to an abandoned tank -- left behind by the miltary's futile attempt to stop the zombie plague.This figure features all the attention to detail that McFarlane Toys is known for. Plus, like all of our The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Walker features unique play action for even more fun. This one includes a special wind-up feature, but don’t let your Zombie Walker wonder off!
This gruesome zombie was an important part of fans' introduction to Daryl Dixon. Found feeding on a deer in the forest near the survivors' camp, the Zombie Biter was beheaded by the group -- but didn't stop until Daryl arrived and shot it in the brain with his signature crossbow.This figure features all the attention to detail that McFarlane Toys is known for. Plus, like all of our The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Biter features unique play action for even more fun.
