THE WALKING DEAD’ COMIC RICK GRIMES RESIN STATUE IN ALL ITS GORY
McFarlane Toys finally revealed the final images for their upcoming Rick Grimes cold-cast resin statue. This statue is based of the comic property and will retail for $295. There will also be a very limited amount of “artist” proofs that will be primed in grey paint available, 50 to be exact. Look for this item soon through your local comic shops via Diamond and through fine online retailers such as Big Bad Toy Store!
McFarlane Toys’ founder and legendary artist Todd McFarlane and his award-winning McFarlane Toys design group, in conjunction with Robert Kirkman and Skybound Entertainment, are excited to bring the comic series main protagonist, Rick Grimes, to life in this limited-edition, highly-detailed, hand-crafted cold-cast resin statue.
Hardened by killing and loss, a harsher, tougher Rick Grimes has emerged from the rubble of this post-apocalyptic world. Standing more than 12 inches tall, The Walking Dead limited-edition statue depicts the comic version of Rick, in a desperate struggle against the endless wave of the undead. Rick single-handedly exterminates a hoard of zombie threats in his unyielding mayhem!
Based on a rough sketch from The Walking Dead visionary himself, Robert Kirkman, and fleshed out by the McFarlane team, this eyeball-popping, brain-splitting, and gun-blazing concept has turned into the most detailed The Walking Dead statue created to date.
This hand-painted piece not only includes Rick Grimes and three full zombies, but also three zombie heads and a slew of body parts smeared across every angle of the 360 degree rotating rubble base. From the exploding brain matter and a head-locked zombie to a zombie head crushed under Rick’s boot, you can feel his rage throughout the entire piece.
Each statue also includes a highly detailed sculpted plaque that is individually numbered, along with a certificate of authenticity signed by both Robert Kirkman and Todd McFarlane.
Fifty additional extremely limited “Unpainted Artist Proof” versions of the resin statue are also available. These 50 additional statues are primed in flat grey and ready for customization, or to be displayed as is by collectors in their rawest form
Both The Walking Dead The Rick Grimes resin statues retail at $295 (free shipping and handling; only available in the U.S. and Canada) and are now available on the McFarlane Toys online store. A limited quantity of statues will also be available in the US through Diamond Comic Distribution.
