We’ve got a treat for you, Walking Dead-heads! Later this year, we’ll be carrying this six-inch bust by Gentle Giant Studios based on the hit TV series. AMC’s The Walking Dead, an offshoot of the comic-book series written by Robert Kirkman, has awed audiences for almost five years now. So feast your eyes on Glenn Rhee, an indispensable component of Rick Grimes’s ragtag crew of apocalypse survivors on the show.
A true risk-taker and young soul, Glenn has no problem putting himself in the line of fire for the good of the group. This is what makes him uniquely loyal and trustworthy, a valuable asset to Grimes’s team. Appropriately so, this mini-bust has been digitally sculpted by master artisans using photographic reference directly from the set. This detailed, limited edition and individually numbered statue is rendered in the highest-quality polystone and hand-painted. A certificate of authenticity is also included — this bust is the real deal. Preorder now for December delivery.
Zero to 100 Rhee quick.
The TV show that has served all of our post-apocalyptic screen needs since 2010 is more than worthy of attention from big toy companies. And we’re super stoked that that is indeed happening, because these six new figures from McFarlane Toys are absolutely bomb. The AMC series inspired by the work of Robert Kirkman is totally blood-curdling, and these toys are no different. They come with various weapons and garment accessories and multiple points of articulation, of course.
Among the new, must-have six-inch figures are Rick Grimes (pictured below), Daryl Dixon, Michonne, RV Zombie, Abraham Ford, Hershel Greene, Carol Peletier, Bungee Guts Zombie and The Governor with Long Coat. Pick them up today on CmdStore.com individually or make it easy on yourself by copping the set of nine at a special price!
Hey, boy. Are those bloodstained pants Versace?
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.
