Well, it looks like those that make medieval and dungeon scenery will see a drop in sales once this stuff hits the market

They going to do all the nude scenes?

What scale are these? I presume as an action fig we're not going to see them at 54mm or smaller.

Macfarlane figs are usually 150mm or 200mm.

They say 2 inch figures so around 54mm (2 inch would be 50.8mm)? There's nothing on their site about these, I guess the big announcement will be at comiccon. From what I've seen of the Walking Dead stuff we're looking more at just interior "sets" to display/play with their action figures. It's these "blind bag" things that I wonder about. When I was a kid I tried collecting baseball cards, in those days a "blind" sort of thing and I always got players that I had never heard of, never Mickey Mantle.

Undoubtedly for some this will be a great thing and I have to admit that the image they have of Joffrey looks spot on. I might get a few to collect but I'm still looking for my Mickey Mantle card.

When reading the article it was about a realistic style of Lego to build sets, more than about the figures. I am wondering if these take off like crazy, how long before Lego and other companies develop these things for model builders and gamers?
Think of it, already painted, highly detailed Lego style blocks that can be used for building castles, dungeons, and a whole lot of other things.

Alas, no Joffrey or Walder Frey.

Mixing n' matching Robb & wolf parts is a snap!

The Walking Dead sets…especially the plastic Zombies…sold out fairly soon. Will probably get into this one early. I hope they make some generic soldiers like Lannister swordsmen and Stark polearmsmen.

*"Attack on the Wall" set will include giants and Thenns*

Yussss.

Gee, my old Walmart back in El Paso TX couldn't give the Walking Dead stuff away, they had a lot of the sets. I would be more interested if it were building sets that allowed freehand construction.

Too bad the figures are based on the inconsistent costuming of the serias.

On the other hand the environment block sets may be very useful trerian tools.

The environment stuff will probably be underscale for the figures.
