COMING SOON: The Walking Dead Figures

New figures from The Walking Dead are now available for pre-order! The brilliant artists and sculptors at McFarlane are creating a line of 6-inch figures based on both the awesome books (Series 1) and the amazing AMC TV show (Series 2).

The first series includes Officer Rick Grimes, Michonne, a Zombie Lurker and a Zombie Roamer. The next series features Deputy Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, a Zombie Walker and a Zombie Biter. Only the prototypes for the first four figures have been released (and are the ones shown above), but you can bet that McFarlane will be bringing their A-game to everything they release in this collection.

And there’s more good news for TWD fans, too, in the form of a new video game announcement! Here’s the story from Christian Davis of DeviceMag.com:

It’s a busy time for Telltale Games. With the unveiling of the first trailer for Jurassic Park, and the launch of the second episode of the Back to the Future series, the studio has confirmed it’s creating a video game based on the comic book series The Walking Dead.

According to an IGN report, the partnership with Telltale and Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman will span several years and feature multiple titles on multiple platforms.

Kirkman offered few details on what players can expect from The Walking Dead game, scheduled to launch during the fourth quarter 2011 window.

Kirkman says the game will be episodic and based on events within the comic book universe (there’s also a TV show on AMC). It’s not clear whether this title will be an adventure game — similar to Telltale’s previous work — or a more action-oriented game.
