McFarlane Toys has acquired the toy licensing rights to "The Walking Dead." The action figure line will official debut at Toy Fair 2011 this weekend, but the first two zombie figures can be seen below.
The first series is based on Robert Kirkman's original comic books and will hit shelves in September. It will feature Officer Rick Grimes, Michonne, Zombie Lurker and Zombie Roamer.
The second series is based on the hit AMC television show and will be out in November. It will include Deputy Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, Zombie Walker and Zombie Biter.
McFarlane Toys CEO Todd McFarlane had the following to say, "Kirkman has created a world that is macabre and suspenseful with deeply-drawn characters: both human and zombies. Working with the creative talents of Kirkman and AMC, we have planned figures lines that authentically represent both the television and comic series – including mind-blowing details, likenesses and play action. We want to push the envelope so that the true essence of 'The Walking Dead' series is captured."
Kirkman added, "I simply cannot contain my excitement over working with McFarlane Toys. For nearly two decades McFarlane Toys have proven themselves to be leading the pack when it comes to making cool looking, innovative toys, and I'm thrilled that they're going to continue to do so with 'The Walking Dead.'"
Each deluxe 6-inch figure includes interchangeable accessories and several points of articulation. They will sell for around $14.99 each. Who else is going to be picking these bad boys up?
