The Governor and his lieutenants reunite with some of the people who hated them the most. The Governor and Gabe, Michonne vs Bruce, Lori (with baby Judith) and partially flayed Shoulder Zombie, and a prison doctor with Woodbury defector Alice make up the wave. Look for each of these 2-inch figure two-packs to release this summer.
Why won’t the dead stay dead? They continue to wreak havoc in the Minimate universe with another series of The Walking Dead. Based on the comics, the comic and specialty shop assortment will include Rick in Riot Gear & Guard Zombie, Dexter & Dreadlock Zombie, Prison Hershel & Farmer Zombie (comic shop and specialty store exclusive), and Prison Tyreese (Battle Damaged) & Farmer Zombie (comic shop and specialty store exclusive variant set). Toys R Us will also get an exclusive assortment with Rick in Riot Gear & Guard Zombie, Dexter & Dreadlock Zombie, Bald Glenn with Vest Zombie (Toys “R” Us exclusive) and Carol with Pole Zombie (Toys “R” Us exclusive). Look for these in the spring.
