McFarlane Toys announced today two separate deals to produce action figures for AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” First, the company signed with AMC to create action figures based on the original series, and then McFarlane Toys partnered with Robert Kirkman to create action figures based on his comic-book series. Both lines will hit stores this fall.
“Kirkman has created a world that is macabre and suspenseful with deeply-drawn characters: both human and zombies,” says Todd McFarlane, chief executive officer of McFarlane Toys. “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.”
