McFarlane Toys has introduced 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.
After waking from a coma in an abandoned hospital, deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finds the world he knew gone – ravaged by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions. McFarlane’s figure of Rick Grimes 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 (Norman Reedus) is an all-new character created specifically for The Walking Dead AMC television show. McFarlane’s figure of Daryl features the exact likeness of the actor, taken from a 3D scan of Norman Reedus. The Dixon figure comes with crossbow, hunting knife, fire axe, pick axe, and a string of squirrels.
What Walking Dead figure series is complete without a few “walkers.” This memorable zombie, clad in a dirty business suit, was encountered by Rick Grimes 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. Additionally, as with all of The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Walker features unique play action for even more fun. This one includes a special wind-up feature.
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. The Zombie Biter figure features all the attention to detail that McFarlane Toys is known for. Plus, like all of The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Biter features unique play action. This one features a deer meat accessory and a spring-loaded moving jaw, so your Zombie Biter will actually bite.
