McFarlane is showing off more of its action figure line from The Walking Dead series. Todd McFarlane chimed in to say this;
“Kirkman has created a world that is macabre and suspenseful with deeply-drawn characters: both human and zombies, Working with the creative talents of Kirkman and AMC, we have planned figures lines that authentically represent both the television and comic series – including mind-blowing details, likenesses and play action. We want to push the envelope so that the true essence of ‘The Walking Dead’ series is captured.”
The first series of deluxe 6-inch figures is releasing in September 2011 and includes four fan-favorite characters from the Image comic book including:
THE WALKING DEAD Series 1
-Officer Rick Grimes
The second series of deluxe 6-inch figures is revealed in November 2011 and introduces four figures based on AMC’s original drama including:

Each human figure includes multiple interchangeable accessories and several points of articulation for limitless possibility and customization. Each zombie figure features unique, gory play action such as exploding heads and removable limbs. Figures are expected to sell for around $14.99 at retailers nationwide. Here's what The Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman had to say;
“I simply cannot contain my excitement over working with McFarlane Toys, For nearly two decades McFarlane Toys have proven themselves to be leading the pack when it comes to making cool looking, innovative toys, and I'm thrilled that they're going to continue to do so with ‘The Walking Dead.' "
