McFarlane Walking Dead building Sets Retailer Breakdown

The Walking Dead Building Sets by McFarlane Toys have been available as limited Toys “R” Us Exclusives for a few months now. These fantastic sets feature LEGO compatible pieces that create highly detailed mini dioramas. The miniature figures included are styled to look like more realistic models, as opposed to standard brick figures. We’ve taken shots of some of the currently available sets (Walking Dead Building Set Figure Pack Photo Shoot, Toyark Gallery – Walking Dead Daryl Dixon with Motorcycle Building Set, Walking Dead Building Set – The Governor’s Room Photo Shoot).

Now, Todd McFarlane has announced that these building sets will be expanding to numerous retailers. These include Walmart, Target, Amazon, Walgreens and Gamestop. Walmart will also have exclusive sets. The Prison Tower Set will be broken into two pieces for them, one with the Prison Tower and one with the Fence and Gate, allowing fans to add onto their Prison sets however they choose.
