Diamond Select Toys is bringing out Minimates based on “The Walking Dead” comic book series, from Image Comics. Sure, this is nothing new, and we’ve reported on it at length, but as their release date keeps creeping ever closer, DST is making sure we remember by sending along a bunch of photos that would make even the most prudish of individuals gasp in wonderment and grab their wallets in the hopes of finding these little pieces of rotted goodness on the shelves. Also, DST appears to be throwing down the gauntlet with their incredible gauntlet-throwing outdoor Minimate photography (that’s OUR bag!)–and by bringing back our infinite sadness from seeing Glenn again.
For those of you eagerly anticipating the release of the first series of Walking Dead Minimates, Diamond Select Toys has a treat for you. It’s photos of Series 1 — both the specialty store/comic shop wave and the Toys “R” Us assortment — in action! DST took some early samples of the toys out into the real world to show fans what the final product will look like, and the outlook is delightfully grim! Look for Series 1 to arrive in September, with Dale and the rare Winter Coat Dale variant figure exclusively at comic shops and specialty stores, and Glenn and Shane exclusively at Toys “R” Us! Check out the gallery here, then pre-order the specialty assortment at your local comic shop or favorite online retailer!
