McFarlane Toys’ AMC The Walking Dead Series 3 Action Figures Arrive March 2013
February 7, 2013

This morning, over on AMC’s official ‘The Walking Dead” blog they have posted the pre-Toy Fair news of wave 3 of the TV version of McFarlane Toys’ “The Walking Dead” figures:


Following the success of its previous AMC’s The Walking Dead action figure lines, McFarlane Toys and AMC have teamed up to deliver an all-new series of action figures, available in stores this March. Each human figure features the exact likeness of the actor by using a 3D scanning process. And just like the first and second series of figures, each zombie features unique play-action.

“As fans of The Walking Dead TV show since its very inception, our goal is to bring out the most intriguing characters, unique play features and accessories that will reward the fans who have supported this show,” said Todd McFarlane, McFarlane Toys founder and creative director. “We want to push the envelope so that the true essence of the show is captured.”

Releasing March 2013, the five figure line of McFarlane Toys’ AMC The Walking Dead Series 3 will feature fan-favorite characters from the show, including:

The mysterious stranger who saves Andrea from walkers with her katana blade and two pet walkers in tow. She is a quiet, but fierce warrior. This action-figure comes with 24 points of articulation, removable poncho, katana sword and katana sheath.

Merle Dixion
Left for the dead in Season 1 by Rick and the rest of the survivors, Merle Dixon, the estranged brother of Daryl Dixon, makes his full return in Season 3. This action-figure comes with 20 points of articulation and a prosthetic arm with a removable bayonet.

Autopsy Zombie
In Season 2, Rick and Daryl perform an autopsy on this newly fed zombie to find out the contents of his stomach in a desperate attempt to locate Sophie. This zombie figure includes a knife and removable shirt to reveal an exposed stomach, partially digested hand and a woodchuck carcass.

Michonne’s Pets
Connected directly to Michonne’s past, she has rendered both these walkers harmless by removing their bottom jaw and arms. Now that both Pets are somewhat subdued, she puts them to good use as pack mules and zombie repellant. Both Pets come with removable backpacks, neck chain leash, arms and jaw. Each Pet sold separately.

Each 6-inch scale human figure includes multiple interchangeable accessories and several points of articulation. Each zombie figure features unique, gory play action — such as removable body parts — and cool accessories. Figures are expected to sell for around $14.99 to $16.99 at GameStop, Barnes & Noble, Hastings Entertainment, Toys ‘R’ Us U.S. and Canada, Target Canada, EB Games, F.Y.E. and comic book and specialty stores nationwide.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
