Army Men and Mini Busts THE WALKING DEAD Style

Todd Jepperson

After a knockout season three premier, it seems like everybody is getting excited about THE WALKING DEAD. Bob Kirkman's former comic book brainchild has taken on all new life and now everyone can bring home a piece of the action.

Just announced and coming soon from ten-year industry colossus Gentle Giant LTD. are their all-new THE WALKING DEAD collectibles, including Rick Grimes and "Well Walker" mini busts and an all new set of decaying, putrified undead army men.

Imagine waking up one day and discovering that you’d missed the Apocalypse. That’s what happened to Rick Grimes. Once a Sherriff’s Deputy, he fell into a coma after being wounded in the line of duty. Upon waking up, he finds his town in ruins, his family missing and the dead walking the earth. Determined to survive, Rick must adapt to the new world around him. Difficult challenges face him and his band of refugees as they struggle against impossible odds for their lives… and their humanity.

From the screen to your shelf, Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the Sheriff Grimes Mini Bust. Based on the hit AMC television series, this bust boasts an exact likeness of actor Andrew Lincoln in his sheriff’s uniform as he appears in the show’s pilot episode. The Grimes mini bust comes pistol drawn, ready to take down criminals and walkers alike. This special Gentle Giant Direct version includes a bonus accessory – Rick’s Sheriff Hat! These limited-edition hand-numbered busts include matching certificates of authenticity and can, in a pinch, be used to defend against an attacking Walker.

In the episode “Cherokee Rose,” survivors Dale and T-Dog find a walker at the bottom of Hershel’s well. In an attempt to salvage the water supply, they first try to lure, then drag, the walker out of it. Unfortunately, their attempts are unsuccessful, as the rotting, bloated corpse is bisected by the rope the survivors are using to hoist it out, spilling its tainted entrails and ruining the well.

The only safe way to bring a zombie home with you, this mini bust depicts the Well Walker in all of his undead, bloated glory! Cast in high quality polystone and painted by hand, this limited edition collectable mini bust is hand numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Perfect for any horror fan! Just keep this one away from the water supply.

The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic drama television series developed for television by Frank Darabont. It is based on the comic book series The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.

It’s a trip down memory lane… but with zombies! No longer constrained to the traditional green vs. tan, now kids and kids-at-heart alike can have their armies take on The Walking Dead! Use your green troops strategically to defend the last outposts of humanity, or take control of a horde of Walkers and decimate everything in your path in your never-ending lust to devour the living! With 10 figures per bag, featuring an assortment of different dynamic sculpts in two nightmarish colors, The Walking Dead Zombie Army Men are ready to rip, tear and chew their way into your toy collection. Purchase as many sets as you like!

Thanks to for the heads up. Watch for all of these sweet babies to hit your favorite retailers, including The Zombie Toy Store, in early 2013.
