Entertainment Weekly has the first look at the third series of Walking Dead Minimates. The third series will focus on the prison storyline, and feature Rick in riot cop gear, and Tyreese and Hershell in prison garb. Plus Dexter. Plus zombies. It seems each character will be paired with a zombie,
with Rick and Dexter being Toys R Us exclusives. The third series is expected to hit shelves in the spring.
Correction: Rick and Dexter will pull double duty with the TRU assortment, which has yet to be announced. Battle-damaged Tyreese will be the variant of the specialty assortment. Thanks Zach.
Highlighting the third series will be a contest judged by Robert Kirkman and DST. The contest will require participants to piece together a fan video using existing Walking Dead Minimates. The winner will receive an autographed copy of the Walking Dead Compendium, as well as autographed series 3 Minimates. Details are listed on the Skybound website.
