Friday, September 23, 2011
No sleeping sibling or rival toy will be safe now that The Walking Dead figures have started to wandering on to shelves at your neighborhood Toys"R"Us, Barnes & Noble, Hastings Entertainment, and comic book stores. The Walking Dead Comic Series 1 includes some of the most iconic characters from the book like Officer Rick Grimes and Michonne. But don’t forget the zombies, because it’s all fun and games until someone gets their brains eaten.
Let’s take another look at The Walking Dead line, just in case you can’t recognize a flesh-eating zombie when you see one…
OFFICER RICK GRIMES
Inspired by the cover of The Walking Dead comic book issue #1, this figure features Rick in his police officer uniform, complete with cowboy hat and jacket. Figure comes with pistol and a police duffel bag with several removable shotguns. Features approximately 20 points of articulation.
Inspired by the cover of The Walking Dead comic book issue #19, this figure features Michonne as she appeared on that first fateful day, with the accessories from her unforgettable act of vengeance to come. Figure comes with her signature katana sword and various implements of revenge including a power drill, hammer, pliers, and spoon. Features approximately 22 points of articulation.
Pull its torso up, and it splits apart at the waist, exposing its intestines and other internal organs, transforming it into a legless "crawler." The figure also features removable arm segments and a head that splits at the jaw line, all exposing layers of decaying muscle, bones, and blood.
Press the button on the Zombie Roamer's back, and its head splits open vertically, unleashing an explosive, disgusting mess of blood and brain fragments. Push the knife-shaped lever back down, close the head, and reset the figure for another sickening head burst. Figure also features removable arm segments that expose the jagged bones and torn muscle that lie beneath.
