Threezero x AMC The Walking Dead 1:6 Scale Figures

Threezero x AMC The Walking Dead 1:6 Scale Figures

THREEZERO has announced a collaboration with AMC to produce hyper-detailed The Walking Dead 1/6th scale figures, with the first samples on display at San Diego Comic-Con. The production plan for this toy line will feature main characters as well as iconic zombies from the show, in 1/6th-scale. The first figures shown are Michonne's companion walkers, and Merle. 

"The torso on these Walking Dead zombies is composed of a soft PVC similar to the upper torso of 3A's female body which, in four years, has not experienced deterioration and cracking issues of rubbers companies have used in the past.

Even though the pet zombie has no arms, the shoulders, neck, upper torso and waist are all articulated. Below the waist has the traditional 1/6th scale figure articulation that collectors have grown to expect."

"The Walking Dead" returns this October with brand new episodes. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" tells the story of a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home in the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. The series stars Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Emily Kinney.
