Walking Dead Daryl Dixon On Bike Resin Statue From McFarlane

Walking Dead Daryl Dixon On Bike Resin Statue From McFarlane

I'm not a fan of The Walking Dead but I know many of you are. McFarlane Toys is releasing a cool statue featuring Daryl Dixon.

Daryl Dixon is a skilled hunter, fighter, tracker, and mechanic whose talents have made him one of the most valuable individuals to the group, and have saved him and his companions on many occasions. The Walking Dead Daryl Dixon Resin Statue embodies the intensity of Daryl Dixon as an individual using everything to his disposal, even his motorcycle, to fight and survive.

Not only has his savvy for staying alive meant a chance to fight another day, but also made him an instant fan favorite on AMC's hit television series The Walking Dead. With acute attention to every detail from head to tail pipe, the Daryl Dixon resin statue was created, developed, and designed by Todd McFarlane, and his award-winning McFarlane Toys design group, in conjunction with AMC. A welcomed addition to McFarlane Toys line of limited addition resin statues, Daryl Dixon comes as the first statue featuring AMC's The Walking Dead! Statue measures over 14-inches wide x 12-inches deep x 10-inches tall! Daryl comes with an alternate head with sunglasses, a certificate of authenticity and is individually numbered!

This will be released in February or March, but you can preorder now on Amazon.

Big Bobett Holiday Special Figure

Flab Slab is teaming with Wetworks to release the Big Bobett figure in his Holiday suit.
