For those of you Walking Dead fanatics that weren’t able to score the first look comic figures at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, your wait is over. The second comic series inspired by the highly acclaimed, Eisner Awarding-winning The Walking Dead comic book series from creator/writer Robert Kirkman is finally here! Warning: May turn other toys into flesh consuming zombies!!! (Kidding, Sort of)
The Walking Dead, the top-selling graphic novels of 2011 and 2012, from Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image Comics, tells the story of the months and years that come after the zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by Rick Grimes, who travel in search of safety and security, all while fending off the hordes of undead and even deadlier humans they encounter on their journey.
Glenn, an original Atlanta survivor, has become crucial to the survival of Rick’s group due to his ability and agility at getting in-and-out of zombie-infested areas in order to search for food and supplies. Glenn, in full riot gear, features 28 points of articulation and is equipped with two pistols, riot shield, baton, gas can, and removable helmet with flip-up visor.
Zombies are not the only threat to Rick and his band of survivors, the Governor is truly the first human antagonist that the group encounters within the comic series. The Governor features 28 points of articulation and includes a kitchen knife, pistol, and alternate mutilated head & right arm.
MICHONNE’S PET ZOMBIE
It’s not until Mike, Michonne’s boyfriend, is bit by a zombie that Michonne discovers the true nature of the zombie epidemic. A bite is a death sentence! Michonne quickly realizes that Zombies don’t attack other Zombies and uses Mike as camouflage and protection against the hordes of the undead awaiting her in this new world. Michonne’s Pet Zombie features 17 points of articulation and includes a neck collar & chain, tear off arms & jaw, and push in/ pull out intestines.
PENNY, THE GOVERNOR’S DAUGHTER ZOMBIE
Nothing is stronger than a father daughter bond, as we see with The Governor and his daughter Penny. Infected early on with the zombie virus, Penny has been cared for and fed by her unconditionally loving father. Penny features 12 points of articulation and includes a bucket of fresh body parts (severed leg, severed foot, severed hand, intestines, heart and Rick’s severed hand) that the Governor feeds to her. Figure also includes a fish tank with trophy heads collected by her father. One of the heads can be used as an alternate head for Michonne’s Pet Zombie Mike, allowing you to build Michonne’s 2nd pet and Mike’s best friend, Terry.
BLOODY BLACK & WHITE THE GOVERNOR & PENNY 2-PACK
Staying true to the comic, this blood-splattered black & white version of The Governor & Daughter Zombie is the perfect addition to any The Walking Dead collection. This box set still includes all the articulation and gory accessories included with the standard figures. This boxed set is a PX Previews Exclusive from Diamond Comic Distributors.
All of the individual intestine devouring Walking Dead Comic Series 2 figures will be available next month at Amazon.com, BigBadToyStore.com, CLARKtoys.com, Diamond Comic Distributors, GameStop, Hastings Entertainment, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Toys ‘R’ Us Canada.
