Rick Grimes is back to kicking ass on The Walking Dead TV show. But he never really stopped kicking ass in The Walking Dead comic book — even when the dude lost one of his hands. To commemorate the former sheriff’s deputy’s ass-kicking adventures, McFarlane Toys is releasing a new statue of the Rickster. And not just any old statue, mind you, but a “limited-edition, highly-detailed, hand-crafted cold-cast resin statue”…which I believe is French for “super fancy.” How fancy? Well, it stands more than 14 inches tall on a “360 degree rotating rubble base.” So, like I said…FANCY!
But see for yourself as we’ve got your first exclusive images of the product right here with a close up photo above and a photo of the full statue below (along with other goodies). See Rick Grimes strangle one zombie, while blasting another with a kill shot right through the brains. Then there’s the unlucky chap with an axe sticking out of his head. That’ll leave a mark.
Who could imagine such gore and madness? Why, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who sketched out the original concept for the statue on a smartphone, which you can also see below along with the McFarlane Toys concept sketch they worked up off of Kirkman’s original vision. Check out all the images, and then you can go pick up the product for that special someone in your life who just can’t get enough zombie-brain-blasting goodness — meaning yourself.
