Toy Fair 2015 Preview–McFarlane Toys’ incredibly detailed playsets from The Walking Dead

Walking Dead Toy Fair B 2015

Fans of The Walking Dead will soon be making fans of all other genre franchises jealous.  McFarlane Toys released photos this weekend reminiscent of the old Marx Toys historical battle playsets of the 1960s and 1970s or the 1980s Star Wars “Micro Collection” playsets.  It’s an entire line of interlocking playsets for your favorite zombie fan.

Re-enact your favorite scenes from The Walking Dead or Trapper John, M.D.

Retailing for between $10 and $65 per set, you can re-create the hospital door from the opening credits (above), hang with friends in your Winnebago, the prison the survivors lived in, or escape in your favorite jeep (the Woodbury Assault vehicle below).

Lower and upper cell and stairwell section will be sold separately.

These make you wish for similar playsets for Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, DC and Marvel characters, and Universal Studios monsters.

For the small format size the figures look pretty good, and consistent with McFarlane’s prior larger size figures.  Look for these in stores later this year.
