New McFarlane Walking Dead Action Figures

With the TV series “The Walking Dead” being picked up for a second season, and “first looks” being shown left and right, toy maker McFarlane’s announcement of two new action figures couldn’t have come at a better time. Earlier this year, in February, McFarlane already announced its line of action figures – from both the comics and the TV series. Here’s one of those action figures, which never fails to turn my stomach each time I look at it (don’t ask me why I keep looking anyway). It’s a Zombie Lurker, by the way.

The two new action figures are little more easy on the eyes.1 Here’s the one of Daryl Dixon, the badass expert hunter who ends up being one of the survivors at the end of the first season.

Official description of the figure:

An abrasive survivalist, and brother of the outspoken racist Merle, Daryl Dixon is an all-new character created specifically for the hit AMC television show. Our figure of Daryl features the exact likeness of the actor, taken from a 3D scan of Norman Reedus himself. Figure comes with crossbow, hunting knife, fire axe, pick axe, and even a string of squirrels. Daryl goes perfectly with the Zombie Biter figure, also in The Walking Dead Television Series 1.

The other action figure is of a Zombie Walker, which looks a tad bit “better” than the Lurker announced earlier.

Official description of the figure:

This memorable Zombie Walker, clad in a dirty business suit, was encountered by Rick during his first excursion into Atlanta. Upon Rick’s arrival, the walker rose from the wreckage of a city bus and followed Rick to an abandoned tank. This figure features all the attention to detail that McFarlane Toys is known for. Plus, like all of our The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Walker features unique playaction for even more fun. This one includes a special wind-up feature, so your Zombie Walker will actually walk!

Pretty cool that the Walker walks, but I wouldn’t want to wake up in the middle of night and see it in action…
