Now this is another surprise for me. I didn’t know that McFarlane Toys would be releasing more figures from the Telltale Walking Dead Video Game. It turns out they are and once again it’s another exclusive, as he’ll be exclusively available at NYCC as a Skybound Exclusive. This time they’ll be releasing a Lee Everett figure, the main protagonist of the Season 1 game.
I just want to get one thing out the way before I go on talking about the figure. I personally have nothing wrong with McFarlane Toys doing exclusive figures from The Walking Dead. What I have a problem with is them releasing characters exclusively at Con’s. It really annoys me as I am based in the UK so it’s harder for me to get it and it’s not released in retail, so many people are going to miss out too. I don’t mind alternate versions, but new characters from TWD really does annoy me, as I would love to get them but I can’t.
I have to say I’m personally very pleased with how the figure of Lee has turned out. It doesn’t look exactly like Lee, but I can tell who it’s supposed to be. I have to say they have got the outfit down pat. It looks fantastic. The paint looks very clean and the detail is amazing. I really love that they have given him Clementine’s walkie-talkie; that’s a fantastic touch.
He’ll be as articulated as the other Walking Dead figures by McFarlane have been lately. Accessory wise he’ll come with an axe, meat cleaver and an alternate arm. That’s all he needs to come with really. Like all exclusive Walking Dead Figures they’ll be a blood splattered version. I have to say I much prefer the clean version personally.
You can get this 5-inch scale action figure during New York Comic-Con in the Skybound booth #1544.
