Five months is the proper amount of lead-in to get the hype organ wailing, right? The second season of THE WALKING DEAD won’t be up and shuffling again until October, but AMC’s released this first production still to assuage any fears that the zombies might not return. I was never that great in Biology, but I’ll guess that pus and coagulation are the ingredients for the kind of freaky, alien bug eyes we see above. Will these be the first walkers that Rick Grimes and his posse encounter after their escape from that facility at the end of the last episode? We’ve got a long time ahead before we find out.== TEASER ==
Splash Page has also gotten pics of some new action figures from the WALKING DEAD set that McFarlane toys is putting out. Both of these characters - - Daryl Dixon and a vaguely-Alec-Baldwin-looking zombie - - were created for the show, but you maniacs should all remember that early preview model of fan-favorite crazy lady Michonne (as she's yet to appear outside of the comics.) These all have the detail and realism we’ve all come to take for granted from McFarlane toys, but you’ve got to give them extra credit for giving the zombie a morbidly-creative shuffle feature.
Yeah, if you wind the guy up and let him loose, he’ll start lurching forward like a proper walker. That's a spookier feature than the ol' "kung fu grip," isn't it?
