AMC and McFarlane Toys announced a new line of action figures based on the huge hit cable TV series, THE WALKING DEAD. The 6-inch figures will be highly detailed with some action features as well as articulation points. McFarlane is well known for making some of best quality collector’s item products of any company in the industry. Their fine products are sold at such top notch stores as FAO Schwarz and other excellent quality retailers.
AMC really hit gold with THE WALKING DEAD, a cable series based off a comic by Image comics about survivors of a zombie Apocalypse struggling to survive. After an October 31, 2010 debut on AMC, the series met with record ratings for the cable channel and high critical praise, resulting in a renewal for the series for a second season after only the second broadcast.
Over at AMC, which runs mainly classic films, and few new series, THE WALKING DEAD was a little bit of a gamble for the network which at one time ran full length movies with no advertising breaks. Yet, as the popularity of the network grew, AMC looked for new projects, and THE WALKING DEAD became a huge hit after the Halloween premiere of the new original series.
