Toyark reports that McFarlane had a huge “The Walking Dead” display at Toy Fair 2014 where they showed of some of their new “Walking Dead Comic Series” and “Walking Dead TV Series” figures.
They also had a massive comic-style Rick Grimes vs Walkers statue prototype, a new Rick Grimes TV Series 10″ figure, as well as a first look at “The Walking Dead Season 4 Special Edition Blu-ray Case” and more.

Figures discovered that BigBadToyStore.com has opened pre-orders revealing an insanely cool new McFarlane ” The Walking Dead” item: a Daryl Dixon with Chopper Deluxe Boxed Set. Yes, I said with chopper…
Priced at $32.99 and scheduled to arrive in March 2014, this 5-inch scale figure set packs the first vehicle for the line.
The motorcycle features the lightning-bolt insignia on the tank, skull decal, and saddlebags.
The Daryl Dixon action figure includes approximately 20 points of articulation, hunting knife and new crossbow.

It really bums me out that I just turned 30. What I would have done for the respect of toy companies when I was 6. I literally have no space for all of this awesomeness, and my imagination has taken a turn for the worst (not that I could see myself literally “playing” with these).
Still, I might have to muster up a spot for Vinz Clortho, the Keymaster of Gozer, a loyal minion demi-god who obeys The Destructor. In the 1984 Ghostbusters, Vinz possessed Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) and became one of the most beloved characters in the franchise (I would have loved his party!) This figure comes with an array of extras, including the dog head from the finale. Available in March.
Also available this March is “Marshmallow Mess Ray” who comes with a messy logo. In May you can snag “Egon with Lab Coat”, which appears to come with the library ghost! Lastly, in July Mattel releases “Winston with Slime Blower”.
I think the one thing that all of the toy companies are missing are toy “displays”. I’m not really looking to have Marshmallow Mess Ray and Vinz Clortho just handing out on my desk. I want a rooftop piece with a ginormous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man climbing up. NECA has the right idea with their Crow rooftop fight piece, and the Friday the 13th shrine set, but no toy company has really gone out of their way to create something spectacular (like a possessed Dana (with removable shirt) apartment set that comes with a demonic refrigerator).
Quickly turning their back on the 2010 remake, NECA has unveiled three brand new Freddy Krueger action figures based on the film’s initial trilogy! These badass A Nightmare on Elm Street toys bring us new Freddy’s from the title film, Freddy’s Revenge (sorry, no dead parakeet), and Dream Warriors. Each comes with an interchangeable head. But in all seriousness, who wouldn’t want the actual “Dream Warriors” in toy form? “Yo, Freddy! Where you hiding at, you burnt-faced pussy?” – Roland Kincaid
In addition, inside we threw up a quick look at NECA’s “The Walking Dead” busts. Eh, I’ll watch for McFarlane’s toy line based on Robert Kirkman’s comic.
While it appears NECA is continuing to shy away from horror lines based on specific franchises, they do have some really cool stuff in the pipeline.
Next to the new Freddy Krueger’s (images in next story), my favorite upcoming line is from Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Joe Dante’s 1990 sequel featuring all sorts of interesting and new characters from “Rambo Gizmo” to the “Brain Gremlin”, “Mohawk/Stripe”, “Spider Gremlin” and more!
NECA also unveiled some absolutely incredible figures based on both James Cameron’s 1984 The Terminator and the 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The highlight of the batch are the original “Terminator” toys as portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Freakin’ AWESOME.
Lastly, inside you’ll find images of even more Predator figures from this past summer’s Predators, along with the toy based on the alien hunter from Predator 2. I’m not exactly sure who keeps buying all these. Who has a wall full of like 3o Predator toys? The 40-year-old virgin maybe?
One of the best things to ever happen to the “SPAWN” franchise was the birth of a new Spawn in character Jim Downing. It was one of those choices that was almost crucial to breath life into the stale series, and now that it has happened the series feels better than ever. And this February the McFarlane team look to continue evolving the series as the present new mythology into the Spawn, something that they promise will change the series completely.
“He has miraculously awoken from a coma, dodged being burned alive in a hospital fire, and fought his way to find answers about his past. Now, our new Spawn, Jim Downing, learns a crucial piece of information that changes the game completely.”
Today I got a chance to take a look at a preview for the final issue of the first arc in Robert Kirkman (“Walking Dead”, “Top Cows Pilot Season”) and Todd McFarlane’s (“Spawn”, “Spiderman”) ‘Haunt’. Needless to say it looks f***ing brutal! Read on for the full preview!
