    Walking Dead figure collectors

    First off, let me say I am completely late to the game.

    Only this past July did I finally get into the goodness of the Walking Dead (though my in-laws have been telling me for months), and that is just the tv show.

    Then about the time MOTUC started hitting Big Lots I started looking for TWD figures, though most are gone.

    I did score the Michonne's Zombie Pets 3 pack from TRU (Hastings had it too for about $5 more).

    I know I'll never get any of the older stuff, but I'm hoping to pick up the wave that comes out later this year. My wife actually wants the Daryl Dixon figure lol.

    So, any other TWD collector's out there?

    Uh YEAH!!
    March 2014 A NEW Daryl Dixon sculpt will be out, with a new cross bow AND his motorcycle!!!
    You can pre-order on BBTstore!!
    I have to the AMC are great but since i prefer the comic, i like the comic figures better...AND you can still pick up Rick & Michonne for reasonable prices.
    Penny is my favorite of all the Walking Dead figures!!
    I also have all the POP figures and the minifigures are great...the zombies are so freaking cute!!
    I have not made up my mind on the minimates...i know its just a matter of time on that one!!

    After passing on the first few waves many times, I finally jumped in when I saw Wave 4 at Walgreens recently. At $12.99 each, I couldn't pass. These figures are just too cool and have lots of accessories.

    Most of the earlier figures, except Rick in his police uniform from Series 1 and Daryl (who is getting re-release in a 2pack with Merle, and new version with a motorcycle), can be had on the secondary market for reasonable prices. I'm going back now and getting the ones I want that I missed, and between Amazon and Ebay the prices have been retail or pretty close.

    Thanks for the input you two!

    I thought Daryl was out again around November. McFarlane is crazy not to have these by Christmas.

    I look fwd to finding the Merle - Daryl 2 pack...maybe at Walgreens!

    I'd be all over the McFarlane figures now that the sculpts and articulation have improved tremendously, but I still can't get past their weird scale. I literally have 9 shelves of horror themed figures (zombies, movie maniacs, Resident Evil stuff) that are pretty much in a 6 to 7 inch scale and look great together. I'd have nothing else similar in this scale,so it's helped me to stay far away from these.

    These are popping up at walgreens around me now. I haven't really been checking but today I picked up Andrea, Governor, Carl, and 1 of the riot gear zombies. Plus they're on sale with card.

    I got an Andrea with perfect face paint! No frog face for her!!

    I also got Carl

    Now I just need the Govoner. I don't think I'm gonna get the riot gear zombies.

    Nice set up!

    I scored all the figures from Walgreen, and picked up the Merle/Daryl 2 pack from TRU.

    Rick Grimes was hard to find, but I knew I would get him eventually. I found 2 and one had a tear in the back with tape on it, but not sure if it came from the factory or if the store did it. I gave it to my Father in Law after he saw it -- he said he is going to start collecting them lol

    The Dixon 2 pack almost eluded me at TRU and it was right at my feet! They werent hidden, just werent at the edge of the shelf and were tipped over. I stood there looking at all the other figures in the 'other' aisle and after about 4 or 5 minutes I noticed them at the bottom. Plus, the packs are way bigger than I thought.

    I'm here in Germany and - as always - I have no chance to get Rick because it's a walgreens exclusive figure.
