I’m glad fan favorite Daryl Dixon is finally getting a figure worthy of him. The Series One toy wasn’t awful, but McFarlane has stepped up their game so much in the past few waves of Walking Dead toys that Norman Reedus’ resident badass was starting to stick out among his more poseable, better looking plastic brethren.
Daryl will be the first deluxe release from the AMC show inspired toy line, packed with his brother Merle’s chopper in a nice window box (which you can see in one of the images below). It’s a nice set, and these new photos only prove once again how well McFarlane’s team did on really nailing the character this time out. The bike looks great, and I love all the detail packed into Daryl, from the angel wings on his vest to the boots.
The only downside is, according to McFarlane’s website the set has been pushed back to April, a month behind the initial release date. For a set this cool, I’m willing to wait without a fuss. Check out the photos and more details from McFarlane.com:
McFarlane Toys’ deluxe box set features Daryl Dixon with his iconic chopper motorcycle. The figure’s exact likeness is created using a full 3D scan of the actor himself, Norman Reedus! This brand new sculpt portrays Daryl in his angel wings stitched biker vest and includes approximately 20 points of articulation, hunting knife and new crossbow.
Daryl’s transportation of choice in this apocalyptic world is his brother Merle’s black chopper motorcycle. The first vehicle produced for The Walking Dead action figure line, this iconic chopper feature amazing detail and includes a skull decal, saddlebags, and crossbow rack.
