McFarlane has released official photos and info for the upcoming Walking Dead TV Series 7 Figures, which we last saw at New York Comic-Con. This wave, due out in April, features an assortment of fan favorites and new figures. All but one of the figures are based on the fourth season of the show. Included are:
- Carl Grimes
- Mud Walker
- Hershel Greene (Target Exclusive)
- Season 1 Rick Grimes (Walgreens Exclusive)
Read on for more info and the images.
In season 4, Michonne has lowered her guard a bit and formed an unlikely friendship with Rick’s son Carl. Michonne reveals her traumatic past to Carl and the events that lead to her surviving the apocalypse alone. Traveling along the train tracks on the road to Terminus, Michonne enjoys a can of cheese, proving that sometimes even the most deadly warrior needs to enjoy the little things in life. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, katana sword with sheath, Terminus memorial candle and a can of cheese.
Carl Grimes, who started out as a shy little boy is season 1, has now become battle hardened by the dramatic events of the most recent seasons. In season 4, Carl’s abilities to protect himself and other survivors have greatly improved. His youth still shows at times, losing one of his shoes during a preventable walker encounter and indulging in a scrumptious can of pudding. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, removable sheriff’s hat, flashlight, Terminus memorial candle and a can of pudding.
Introduced during the season 4 finale, Gareth is the smooth talking leader of the Terminus encampment. Based on the events of that final episode, in which he captures Rick and his group of survivors, Gareth clearly has an alternate agenda to help his people outlive this zombie apocalypse by any means necessary. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, pistol and Terminus memorial candles. Also included is a rotting human carcass, stripped of its meat and hinting at Gareth’s true intentions for Rick’s Group.
The only thing worse than having a walker coming at you is having one sneak up on you…the Mud Walker embodies this most terrifying scenario. During season 4 episode “Too Far Gone,” an unsupervised girl accidently unearths a walker buried in the dirt beside her. The Mud Walker figure exemplifies this gruesome character, complete with decomposing body and a worm coming out of his nose. You can also split this undead figure in half and mount his upper body on his mud-covered base with flash flood sign to recreate this iconic scene.
All of these awesome figures are available next month at Amazon.com, Books-A-Million, GameStop, Hastings Entertainment, HEB, Target, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Walgreens. Contact your local stores for availability.
HERSHEL GREENE EXCLUSIVE
Hershel Greene has been vital in aiding injured survivors using his medical knowledge and religious devotion. When many of the survivors at the prison became ill from a deadly flu, Hershel, without hesitation, tied a bandana over his face and gladly risked his life to save the others. During the climatic season 4 episode, “Too Far Gone,” Hershel was unable to save The Governor from his blind vengeance and met an unjustified end because of it. It then fell on Michonne to put down Hershel’s severed, reanimated head with the very sword that killed him. Embodying these two iconic scenes, this figure comes with bandana covered mouth, a severed Hershel head, bloody katana and approximately 22 points of articulation.
This Hershel Green figure is a Target Exclusive.
RICK GRIMES EXCLUSIVE
In the beginning of The Walking Dead series, we are introduced to deputy Rick Grimes. After waking from a coma in an abandoned hospital, Rick finds the world he knew gone. Bound to uphold the law, Rick is seen wearing his full deputy uniform in many of the iconic scenes from season 1, such as his encounter with the Bicycle Girl walker and riding horseback into the city of Atlanta. This figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, full deputy uniform with hat and pistol.
This Rick Grimes figure is a Walgreen Exclusive.
