Back in February, we gave you an early look at McFarlane Toys' new line of action figures based on "The Walking Dead" television series and comic before they debuted at Toy Fair 2011. Today, we have two more exclusive previews of figures from "The Walking Dead" — including one particular fan-favorite character you won't find in the comics.
In the AMC television series, Norman Reedus plays Daryl Dixon, a crossbow-wielding survivalist who has become one of the most popular characters in the show. As you can tell from the exclusive images we're debuting here on Splash Page, the figure is pretty great likeness of Daryl — right down to the dead squirrels hanging from his belt.
The other figure we're proud to debut here on Splash Page is the "Walker" zombie, which fans will probably remember from early in the series when Rick Grimes first arrives in Atlanta. The best part of the new figure? You can wind it up to recreate all the shambling, flesh-hungry fun of those early episodes. *shudder*
You can check out the first images of both figures and their specs below, but make sure to mark your calendars; they arrive on shelves this November. (Right in time for the next season of "The Walking Dead.")
Here are the official specs for "The Walking Dead" Daryl Dixon action figure from McFarlane Toys:
An abrasive survivalist, and brother of the outspoken racist Merle, Daryl Dixon is an all-new character created specifically for the hit AMC television show. Our figure of Daryl features the exact likeness of the actor, taken from a 3D scan of Norman Reedus himself. Figure comes with crossbow, hunting knife, fire axe, pick axe, and even a string of squirrels. Daryl goes perfectly with the Zombie Biter figure, also in The Walking Dead Television Series 1.
Here's all the info on the "Zombie Walker" figure:
This memorable Zombie Walker, clad in a dirty business suit, was encountered by Rick 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. This figure features all the attention to detail that McFarlane Toys is known for. Plus, like all of our The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Walker features unique playaction for even more fun. This one includes a special wind-up feature, so your Zombie Walker will actually walk!
