As you know there are a lot (and I mean a lot) of merchandise based on The Walking Dead. There are action figures, there are pop figures, there are statues, there are watches, there are guitar straps, there are basically anything you can think of that you can fit the name Walking Dead on. Some of it are quite cool, some of it is pretty ridiculous and then you have those things that makes you go holy s**t!
One of the later is something released by threezero. In just a few days (December 13) they are starting to take pre-orders for The Walking Dead Michonne’s Pet Zombies! And even though I haven’t seen one in the flesh so to speak the pictures reveal that these will be extremely detailed and I for one would love to have them in my book case.
Here are some photos…
Here is an additional photo that shows you the articulation on the figures. If you check the left part of the image, you will see a regular torso (with all the articulation – except hands / arms of course). Pets have it under their skin, so joints aren’t visible.
Here is a Q&A with Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene).
Here is a new teaser for the second half of season 4.
