McFarlane Toys has announced today two separate deals concerning the licensing rights of “The Walking Dead". They'll be creating action figures based on the original series that premiered on AMC. The second is with Robert Kirkman to create action figures based on his comic-book series. This is the first time action figures have been produced, and both lines will be available to retailers in Fall 2011.
The first series of deluxe 6-inch figures (September 2011) includes four fan-favorite characters from the Image comic book including:
Officer Rick Grimes
The second series of deluxe 6-inch figures (November 2011) introduces four figures based on AMC’s original drama including:
Deputy Rick Grimes
Each human figure includes multiple interchangeable accessories and several points of articulation. Each zombie figure features unique, gory, play action such as exploding heads and removable limbs. Figures are expected to sell for around $14.99 at retailers nationwide.
