We didn't have an appointment with McFarlane Toys this year, but we did get to look at what was on deck for 2011.
The Walking Dead is very much an upcoming focus for McFarlane Toys and they have both the comic and TV show license. Finished figures weren't ready to show yet but they did have prototypes on display.
There was also an offering of sports figures but we don't really care about those, do we? The other big line they where showing off was more of the ever-popular Halo line. I am floored they are considering making some of the vehicles they had on display...
Be sure to hit the video up top to get a real good look at both lines and if you squint you can see Mr. McFarlane in the background talking shop at the table in the background.

I never cared much for the visual design of the halo universe, but those toys look like a lot of fun to play with. If I had a friend who had them I'd want to stop by and mess with them.
Walking Dead has been one of my favorite comics for over six years now, and I've been dying for more merch from the series for years...
But those figures... that is exactly what I didn't want to see. It's a shame that McFarlane Toys just doesn't learn, and just add some useful articulation, because I'm not really very interested in spending over $50+ on a set of crappy plastic statues. The HALO series are nice toys, articulated all over the place... why not do that? Why even make these bad statues? I think they would have been much better as 3 3/4-inch scale, or 8-inchers with cloth suits like a Mego.
