The trendy toymakers at Funko recently revealed their upcoming Vinyl Idolz line of figures last weekend at New York City’s Toy Fair, and there’s plenty for zombie fans to get excited about! Characters from both AMC’s popular television series The Walking Dead and the cult film classic Shaun Of The Dead are slated to make their vinyl debut later this year.
Highly stylized and loaded with plenty of zombie-killing accessories, these amazing new figures are the result of a brilliant collaboration between Funko and the very fine folks from A Large Evil Corporation, who made the announcement via their official website.
As we previously announced, the vinyls we’ve designed are finally becoming a reality, thanks to some help from Funko, and their new outfit, ‘Vinyl Sugar’. Not all of the designs you’ve seen are being made (yet…), but some of the most popular ones, and a few ones you won’t have seen should be released this year!
Shaun and zombie Ed should hit toy store shelves in June, while Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon and Michonne are all expected sometime in October. But there’s even more in store from Vinyl Sugar, including vinyl characters from Ghostbusters and Back To The Future! So be sure to swing by A Large Evil Corporation and the official Funko website for more details.
