Diamond Select Toys has unveiled a new assortment of Walking Dead Minimates that are exclusive to Toys “R” Us.
Based on the famous Prison vs. Woodbury storyline, the assortment includes new, exclusive figures of Rick Grimes, the leader of the main band of survivors, and the Governor, the sadistic ruler of Woodbury. Both depict the characters as they appear towards the end of the storyline, bearing the severe injuries inflicted upon them by the Governor and Michonne, respectively. Both figures are exclusive to Toys “R” Us, and each comes with his own exclusive walker, the Gunshot Zombie and the Biker Zombie, respectively.
Also in the assortment are the sword-wielding Michonne (in her poncho) and a pre-conflict figure of the Governor, both of whom are also available in the specialty store assortment. However, the specialty-exclusive figures of Woodbury goons Gabe and Bruce have been replaced by two new zombies! Michonne comes with the Crawling Zombie, who has a lower body piece that allows him to drag his severed torso along the ground, and the Governor comes with the Jaw Zombie.
Minimates have been going strong for years, so I expect this collection will be snatched up quickly.
