DALE HORVATH – Dale has served as a calming force among the original group of Atlanta survivors. While often seen standing watch quietly atop his RV, Dale was never afraid to serve as “the moral compass” and speak up for what he felt was best for the group. This Dale figure immortalizes the survivor community elder with his trusty lawn chair and binoculars…forever keeping lookout for his friends. His figure also includes approximately 22 points of articulation, folding lawn chair, binoculars, removable bucket hat and rifle. Pre-order this figure here.
Dale Horvath McFarlane Toys The Walking Dead TV Series 8 Action Figures
BOB STOOKEY – Bob’s talents as a former army medic and experience with firearms served as a real asset when he joined the group of survivors in season four. Having been the lone survivor in previous survivor groups, the charismatic Bob was often troubled by guilt and his need for alcohol. During the conflict at Terminus, Bob endlessly attempted to be the voice of reason…even after his leg was cannibalized. The Bob figure includes approximately 22 points of articulation, two machetes, removable vest, removable leg, amputated leg and BBQ foot. Pre-order this figure here.
Bob Stookey McFarlane Toys The Walking Dead TV Series 8 Action Figures
RICK GRIMES – A former Sheriff Deputy, Rick Grimes has always been a leader amongst the group of Atlanta survivors. Initially after resisting his destined role, Rick has finally accepted his place of leadership. Rick is ready to do whatever it takes to keep his family and friends alive in this less than moral world. This version of Rick depicts him after the attack on Terminus and includes approximately 22 points of articulation, assault rifle, pistol, and machete with red handle. Pre-order this figure here.
Rick Grimes McFarlane Toys The Walking Dead TV Series 8 Action Figures
EUGENE PORTER – Introduced as a scientist working on a top secret genome project, Eugene convinces a group of survivors led by Abraham to escort him to Washington, DC. Sporting his “Tennessee top hat”, Eugene’s intellect and bluntness proves to be both helpful and disastrous along the way. The Eugene figure is shown in Glenn’s full riot gear armor worn during their detour to Terminus. Figure also includes approximately 22 points of articulation, assault rifle, backpack and prop helmet. Pre-order this figure here.

10 Ways That The Walking Dead Has Prepared You For A Zombie Apocalypse




AMC
AMC
For some of you, the idea of a zombie apocalypse keeps you up at night. It’s the most terrifying thought that you can think about in your day and if it does happen, you have no idea how you’re going to react. You’re either going to be completely badass like Shane or Daryl or you’ll pussy out like Carl or Father Gabriel, neither of which is good in the long run.
You’re constantly thinking of ways that you could improve your current zombie plan and you always keep some tins stocked up in your cupboard, you know, just in case. One of the deal breakers with people that you have just met all depends on how good their zombie plan is. Are they going to know what they’re doing or are they going to try and scrounge off of you and slow your group down? If they don’t even give you an answer straight away of location, defensive method and weapons, then walk away and never look back.
You understand that you’re sometimes being irrational, but shows like The Walking Dead have prepared you in ways that you would have never considered before, and you’re grateful for your conscientious attitude and note taking during every season. People might think that you’re being silly but stranger things have happened; Katie Hopkins still gets airtime, and if that can happen, then walkers can happen.
So do as Scar sings and always be prepared.

10. Don’t Keep Zombies As Pets

AMC
AMC
Unless you’re willing to rip off their jaws and arms and have them on leashes for the rest of your life, they’re never going to become entirely domesticated; they’ll always want to eat you.
If you have a spare barn kicking about, perhaps it’s better to be used as a shelter or as a space dedicated to storing supplies as opposed to keeping a bunch of dead people as pets. Plus, that way, you get to eat the chickens instead.

9. You’ll Need To Have Sex

AMC
AMC
Not only will you want to have sex, but you’ll need to.
You’ll have the responsibility of carrying on the human race (even if we are all doomed). Although no one will envy you being pregnant throughout the apocalypse and then having to hush the child’s cry when walkers approach.
But think about how much fun the trying for a baby will be; you’ll have so much adrenaline anyway because you know that you could die at any given moment by a stray walker. Just enjoy it, if you can.

8. All Doors Are Evil

AMC
AMC
There’s a 50/50 chance that there will be a walker behind the door. It’s like a real life, deadly version of Takeshi’s Castle. There are going to be times when you open a door and wish you hadn’t, but then at least you’ll know what lies ahead.
On a side note, at least learn how to break a door down properly – that’ll come in handy at some point and save you from looking like a massive moron…

7. Zombies Are Always Creeping

AMC
AMC
Always creeping.
Thanks to the shockers from the show, you know to always be on guard and even though that sounds positively exhausting, it’ll probably save your life.
Just expect very little sleep during the apocalypse. Although you’ll be lucky if you have a pillow anyway. Yeah, life will be hard.

6. Enjoy The Little Things

AMC
AMC
Even in a world where zombies don’t exist, you should learn to appreciate the little things in life. However, in a future filled with walkers, those everyday things are going to turn into borderline erotic fantasies.
You’re hoping that people will continue to make chocolate and fresh bread forever, even if walkers are trying to get in and eat them – there should be no excuse for those people not going to work. Also, enjoy waking up to your beloved partner every morning while you can, because, chances are one of you will die pretty soon.

5. Everyone Has A Weapon Of Choice

AMC
AMC
So you’ll need one too if you’re going to fit in and make yourself useful.
Even if you decide to use a tin opener (not recommended) then at least you’ll have something that makes you feel a bit safer. That will probably be a very rare thing too, to feel safe again; so make sure you buy a machete now and learn how to use it.
And don’t show off your mad skills in order to impress that girl you like, because she probably won’t find it arousing watching you play with your sword by yourself.

4. You Need A Daryl

AMC
AMC
Because, who doesn’t?
You’ll need to make friends with someone who knows what to do in a stressful situation and is good at life; they have basic survival skills and because you hate the outdoors, you wouldn’t even know how to put up a tent by yourself.
So you better start learning, or making friends with anyone who looks a bit like they know what they’re doing with a dead ferret.

3. Don’t Expect To Look ‘First Date Ready’ Anytime Soon

AMC
AMC
You’re going to look disgusting, but so will everyone else so it’ll be fine. Hopefully, you’ll all get so used to being smelly together that you’ll forget the taste of mint and won’t even realise that morning breath is now just breath.
Although you’re probably the type of person who would rather survive that care what they look like, you can guarantee that you’ll get stuck with that guy who always talks about how they look. And then inevitably turns talking whining. You’ll just need to remind them that you have your tin opener and you’re not afraid to use it.

2. People Are Going To Die

AMC
AMC
It’s inevitable – we’re all going to die anyway. But some will die more horrific deaths than others.
You are literally going to be surrounded by death and decay every day and even though the colour will look like it’s faded from the world, you can take some solace in the fact that you’ll never be as annoying as Carl.
And then you’ll die. Sorry.

1. Be More Wary Of The Living

AMC
AMC
The biggest lesson that The Walking Dead has given for you is just how far human beings will go in order to survive. In an attempt to survive in a world surrounded by the dead, most people will become desensitised and dehumanised to the world and to others. So make sure you have your three questions and your tin opener ready, because, chances are, you’re going to have to kill or be killed.

New ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Spoilers And Cast Updates



Warning: This article contains spoilers for the series premiere of Fear The Walking Dead.

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the series premiere of Fear The Walking Dead.

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the series premiere of Fear The Walking Dead.

In past years, the gap left between the season finale of The Walking Dead and the new season premiere of The Walking Dead left fans in agony, searching for every bit of news of what they might expect when the series finally resumes. No more. Fear The Walking Dead will now fill at least a part of that gap, scheduled to air in the summer months while The Walking Dead is on hiatus.
Adding to the known cast of Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Alycia Debnam Carey, and Frank Dillane, it has been announced that Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange is the New Black) has also been confirmed to join Fear The Walking Dead’s cast. Although Ms. Rodriguez has been added to the Walking Dead spin-off as a series regular, she won’t be appearing in the first episode. Fear The Walking Dead has already gone into production and the first episode was shot before Elizabeth was brought on board.
Reports from inside sources state the general plot will vary greatly from The Walking Dead primary series, particularly in the areas of character development and interactions. While The Walking Dead features a group (or groups) of strangers thrown together and forced to develop relationships by the circumstances of the zombie apocalypse, Fear The Walking Dead will focus on a single family. It might turn out that Fear The Walking Dead will be more character-oriented, as the stories will focus on the way a tightly-knit family unit reacts and adapts to the zombie apocalypse.
Considering this plot, it seems Elizabeth Rodriguez’s addition to Fear The Walking Dead will be as an outsider, someone whom the Tomkins family will either have to aid and ally, or possibly she will pose a threat that the others must defeat.
Fear The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero revealed in a recent interview that the zombies needed as much consideration as the cast of living characters, due to the setting of the new Walking Dead spin-off.
“You know, Fear the Walking Dead happens almost before [The Walking Dead] show even premiered. One thing that we play up on the show is the environment and how that plays on the walkers…In Georgia, it’s very humid and sunny, so we take that into consideration. In Los Angeles, it’s a lot more dry, so we’ve had conversation about what that would do to the look of the walkers.”
Fear The Walking Dead is set to premiere in July on AMC and through Hulu’s online streaming service.
