The Walking Dead (AKA The Walking Dead Comic Book Figures) Series 1
As we said in our prior post regarding the television series one and two of The Walking Dead, there is no doubt in our minds that we'll be seeing TWD merchandise for years to come. The television series has spread like wildfire making it AMC's most popular show.
However, it's sad really to see just how few people know that the series started out as a comic book way back in 2003. A comic book that is still producing fantastic stories every month. Not only is it debatably a better story than the television version, but many events have unfolded much differently than what you're seeing on AMC. Not only that, but it's arguable among fans that the comic book is the true story, while the TV series is more of an elseworld telling.
Regardless of where you stand on the matter, McFarlane Toys produced a fantastic set of figures based on the comic book series in 2011.
SERIES 1 (COMIC BOOK)
Officer Rick Grimes*Zombie Roamer
The four basic figures (above) were just the tip of the iceberg as far as McFarlane Toys was concerned. Variant exclusives were a massive piece of the sales pie, and McFarlane was eager to cash in from all the fan's bites.
