In this exclusive first look, gaze upon “The Walking Dead” Third Season Limited Edition Blu-Ray Case– which with a little water, gives you a tank-full of violently decapitated heads, just like The Governor on the show.

The case features five plastic decapitated heads, all horribly decayed, most missing a jaw or other parts. Just add water and it’s fun for the whole family, by which we mean the Addams Family, the Manson Family, or just a family that really needs a visit from Social Services.

And according to McFarlane, this case will be a truly unique “The Walking Dead” collectible for everyone who purchases it. “We thought it would be fun for the consumer, after buying the case and taking it home, had to get a little interactive, because we’re not supplying the water!” McFarlane says with a laugh. “So you’re going to have to fill up the tanks yourself, and we’ve got little hooks on the heads, so you can arrange them any way you see fit. You can hang them in a certain order, or you can just let them go to the ground and flop around. No one person’s case has to be exactly like the other’s.”

Here is the press release for the game:

Prepare Yourself for the Apocalypse with The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Pre-Order Bonus DLC

February 7, 2013 – Any advantage could mean the difference between life and death in the terrifying world of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, where every path, action, and choice has a consequence. Activision® and Terminal Reality today announced that players who pre-order the game from GameStop or Amazon will get a jump on the end of the world with an exclusive DLC pack:

· GameStop Herd Mode Challenge – How many frenzied flesh-eaters can you survive against before joining their ranks? Take on endless waves of walkers, each more dangerous than the last, in the all-new Herd Mode. Each wave of undead held off brings with it a new outbreak of hungry biters and new opportunities to rack up an even higher score.

· Amazon Walker Execution Pack – Give yourself an edge (or five) with this ‘unique’ weapon kit. The Amazon Walker Execution Pack adds multiple melee options to your arsenal, including a survival knife, sawtoothed machete, kukri, reinforced hatchet, and advanced machete. With ammo scarce and the undead attracted to loud noises, a sharp, silent blade might just be your most trusted companion.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game that brings the deep, character-driven world of AMC’s Emmy®Award-winning TV series onto console gaming systems and the PC. The game follows the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, brought to life by TV series star Norman Reedus, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, voiced by Michael Rooker, on a haunting, unforgiving journey across the Georgia countryside. Players will need to tread carefully on this desperate quest, scrounging for food, water, and ammunition to survive against nightmares both living and undead.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is scheduled to be released in North America on March 19 for the Xbox 360®, PlayStation® 3, and PC and on March 26 for Wii U™. It is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB. For more information, visit www.TheWalkingDeadBegins.com or ‘Like’ The Walking Dead on Facebook (facebook.com/TheWalkingDeadAMC). Herd Mode is unlockable for Xbox 360® and PlayStation® 3 exclusively through Gamestop, and the Walker Execution Pack is available exclusively through Amazon. While supplies last. Limited time only. Code received when game is available.
