McFarlane Toys has put up pre-orders and a bunch of new photos for their Walking Dead Rick Grimes Resin Statue. We saw a glimpse of the unpainted statue during Toy Fair 2014. The statue portrays the comic version of Rick Grimes taking out a few Walkers unfortunate enough to be in his way. It stands at more than 12″ tall and will sell for $295. The statue ships out in October.
There’s the painted version, and an unpainted artists proof that’s limited to just 50 pieces. Check out the images and more info after the jump.
Hardened by killing and loss, a harsher, tougher Rick Grimes has emerged from the rubble of this post-apocalyptic world. Standing more than 12 inches tall, The Walking Dead limited-edition statue depicts the comic version of Rick, in a desperate struggle against the endless wave of the undead. Rick single-handedly exterminates a hoard of zombie threats in his unyielding mayhem!
Based on a rough sketch from The Walking Dead visionary himself, Robert Kirkman, and fleshed out by the McFarlane team, this eyeball-popping, brain-splitting, and gun-blazing concept has turned into the most detailed The Walking Dead statue created to date.
This hand-painted piece not only includes Rick Grimes and three full zombies, but also three zombie heads and a slew of body parts smeared across every angle of the 360 degree rotating rubble base. From the exploding brain matter and a head-locked zombie to a zombie head crushed under Rick’s boot, you can feel his rage throughout the entire piece.
Each statue also includes a highly detailed sculpted plaque that is individually numbered, along with a certificate of authenticity signed by both Robert Kirkman and Todd McFarlane.

With the figure being unpainted, shadows are cast on every level of the figure and really draw your eye to the amazing detail and time put into these products.”
