During the San Diego Comic-Con, Gentle Giant was showing off a number of their 18″ statues from The Walking Dead TV series, including Michonne, Daryl, and Merle. Michonne was the first to be officially revealed and we now have a look at Merle. *Spoiler Warning: Don't look if you haven't watched all of Season 3.
"One of the most complicated characters of AMC’s The Walking Dead, Daryl’s brother Merle evolved from a stereotypical brutal redneck to a tragic figure seeking redemption, which he finds to a degree after releasing Michonne and singlehandedly taking on The Governor’s ambush party. He meets a violent end by The Governor’s hand, and returns to stalk the living as a Walker.
Designed by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the Merle Dixon Walker Statue captures the likeness of Michael Rooker’s Merle Dixon in all of his undead glory. Each limited edition, hand painted statue comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity."
Gentle Giant has been on a roll with The Walking Dead collectibles recently, announcing a number of mini-busts and prop replicas. Catch up on all of our recent coverage by visiting the following links:
