McFarlane Toys & Skybound Reveal SDCC 2017 Exclusive “The Walking Dead” Set

The Comic Con International: San Diego will be happening in the middle of July and since I am seeing a number of exclusive items that will be available at the convention, I wanted to share as many of them as I could. As you all know, we regularly attend the Toy Fair convention and see a lot of awesome companies which makes me happy to share the skinny on the collaboration that McFarlane Toys and Skybound will be offering to consumers. It’s a group of “The Walking Dead” characters done in the vintage-style packaging of the 3.75″ G.I. Joe’s. They are calling them “The Shiva Force”, and they are “A Real Apocalypse Hero” which I had to chuckle when I saw that. The figures are as follows Rick Grimes, Michonne, Ezekiel and Shiva (the tiger) in his action figure debut. According to what I am reading these figures are inspired by G.I. Joe Tiger Force, and they are painted to match the look. I used to collect these G. I. Joe’s but have no recall of The Tiger Force. Perhaps I missed those ones. Anyway here is some press and the images. I will close out with some editorial as well. Behold!
