High-end manufacturer McFarlane Toys has entered the construction toy category with a range based on the popular adult zombie series The Walking Dead.
Under the terms of the new licence, The Walking Dead building sets and figures will feature realistic sculpts, light-up and shaped features, iconic environments and dozens of other fan favourites that will showcase founder and director Todd McFarlane's attention to detail.
The building sets and expansion packs will feature popular characters and accessories including Daryl Dixon with Chopper, The Governor’s Room, and Prison Tower with Gate. The zombie apocalypse can be expanded with additional figure and accessory packs.
Figures in the first release of Blind Bag figures will include: Daryl Dixon, Michonne, The Governor, Carl Grimes, Riot Gear Walker, Michonne’s Pet Walker, and Herd Walkers.
“Twenty years ago I walked into the action figure aisle, saw an artistic void, and asked, can these toys look cooler?” Todd McFarlane said. “The answer was yes, they could, and I’ve survived 20 years next to the big boys creating those artistic toys.
“Now I’m walking into another aisle with that same question, and the answer is still yes! Will these be the best building sets out there? I’ll leave it up to the consumer to decide. But, will it look cooler? Yes. Will it be more detailed? Absolutely. Will it be more realistic? I guarantee it!”
