When they arrived on the scene in 1994, under their original name Todd Toys, McFarlane Toys redefined every aspect of the action figure business and they boldly challenged every company to try to keep up. Fast forward to 2011, the toy company once again pushes the boundaries with The Walking Dead Comic Book action figure collection. |
We've seen plenty of zombie figures over the last decade, but none has been nearly as innovative as this collection. The first wave includes figures based on Officer Rick Grimes, Michonne, the Zombie Lurker, and the Zombie Roamer.
All four figures in this first assortment is incredible, but the two Zombies take the cake with their action features. you read that right true believers, we said action features. The Lurker, which is easily the coolest mass market action figure released in 2011 features articulated guts (!!!) and the Roamer's head explodes in a bloody mess right before your eyes. What's more, these two figures have removable parts to customize your zombie hoards, but unlike every toy line with removable limbs released before this line, McFarlane Toy's zombies don't have unsightly limb plugs. Instead, the figures are designed to use their anatomies as logical components of the severed pieces, using brains, bones, and guts to hold the undead together!
