Check out the full lineup below and let us know in the comments your most anticipated figure of this wave.
MORGAN JONES – A true survivor, Morgan has battled the apocalypse almost entirely on his own. After losing his family to the outbreak and almost losing himself in the process, Morgan has sought redemption by slaying the endless Walkers on his quest to find Rick Grimes. This version of Morgan depicts the survivalist in his battle ready armor and equipped with his favorite Walker dispatching weapons. Figure comes with approximately 22 points of articulation, assault rifle, alternate masked head, removable hood, walking stick, and backpack. Pre-order this figure here.
DALE HORVATH – Dale has served as a calming force among the original group of Atlanta survivors. While often seen standing watch quietly atop his RV, Dale was never afraid to serve as “the moral compass” and speak up for what he felt was best for the group. This Dale figure immortalizes the survivor community elder with his trusty lawn chair and binoculars…forever keeping lookout for his friends. His figure also includes approximately 22 points of articulation, folding lawn chair, binoculars, removable bucket hat and rifle. Pre-order this figure here.
BOB STOOKEY – Bob’s talents as a former army medic and experience with firearms served as a real asset when he joined the group of survivors in season four. Having been the lone survivor in previous survivor groups, the charismatic Bob was often troubled by guilt and his need for alcohol. During the conflict at Terminus, Bob endlessly attempted to be the voice of reason…even after his leg was cannibalized. The Bob figure includes approximately 22 points of articulation, two machetes, removable vest, removable leg, amputated leg and BBQ foot. Pre-order this figure here.
RICK GRIMES – A former Sheriff Deputy, Rick Grimes has always been a leader amongst the group of Atlanta survivors. Initially after resisting his destined role, Rick has finally accepted his place of leadership. Rick is ready to do whatever it takes to keep his family and friends alive in this less than moral world. This version of Rick depicts him after the attack on Terminus and includes approximately 22 points of articulation, assault rifle, pistol, and machete with red handle. Pre-order this figure here.
EUGENE PORTER – Introduced as a scientist working on a top secret genome project, Eugene convinces a group of survivors led by Abraham to escort him to Washington, DC. Sporting his “Tennessee top hat”, Eugene’s intellect and bluntness proves to be both helpful and disastrous along the way. The Eugene figure is shown in Glenn’s full riot gear armor worn during their detour to Terminus. Figure also includes approximately 22 points of articulation, assault rifle, backpack and prop helmet. Pre-order this figure here.
It’s too bad Eugene is wearing that riot gear getup. I always think of him wearing the layers of shirts and the shorts with hiking boots. Maybe the gear is at least partially removable.
I totally agree on the Eugene, my thoughts exactly. That Morgan figure looks awesome!
Am I the only one who thinks Rick looks ugly?
