The Figure Hobby Club was able to convince Threezero that they needed to do an office tour. It’s a good thing too, because if someone didn’t get a tour soon I was probably going to end up taking it into my own hands to see where our other The Walking Dead figures are.
The photos taken during the office tour give us not only a look at their The Walking Dead Rick Grimes (Sheriff) sixth scale figure, but also a look at their TMNT 2014, Game of Thrones, and Titanfall figures.
It really is relieving to finally see something from The Walking Dead line again. When SDCC 2015 comes around this summer it’s going to be 2 years since the announcement of their TWD Pet Zombies.
I’m actually kind of surprised that Threezero hasn’t released more Walking Dead figures, but I speculate that they had a problem with interest in the line. Not everyone is going to get excited to buy zombies that aren’t really main characters in the show, instead they want the main characters.
Threezero started with Michonne’s Pet Zombies, and I have a feeling that they anticipated many more collectors would be interested in buying them, and because of that they overproduced their first wave. The reason I think they overproduced the Pet Zombies is because large retailers like Diamond Comics were pushing the figures very hard. I think that then caused a lot of retailers to buy the figures, but now they can’t sell them.
That’s just what I personally think happened with the Walking Dead figures, since it has been so long since the first figure announcement. If that really is the case, it’s very surprising that they would continue making zombie figures when they could make some of the main characters to get more people interested in the line.
It has also been almost a year since Threezero announced they would be making TMNT 2014 movie figures. Last time we saw the figures they were in a very early prototype stage. Now they are looking like they are almost ready for pre-order.
I don’t think a better sixth scale company could have got the license for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It probably would have been nice it Hot Toys got the license, but they would probably end up just making a couple of figures and call it a wrap.
The images give us the first look at Leonardo and Michelangelo. Hopefully they have Raphael and Donatello in the works because it would be absolutely terrible to just get 2/4 of the turtles.
Apart from those two licenses, it also looks like they have a new Titianfall figure. Laying down on the side of that laptop, it looks like it could possibly be the Orge titan, the final titan that Threezero has left to make. That figure is also looking like it’s almost ready for pre-order.
If you look closely at the images, you have probably noticed a lot of other figures. Most of them from what I can see are figures that have already been released by Threezero or ThreeA.
What are you most excited for Threezero to release next? Can you spot any new figures in the images that I might have missed? Let me know in the comments below.
