The Walking Dead Mini Busts by Gentle Giant Ltd.

During the San Diego Comic Con 2012, we had the opportunity to take a tour and chat with Gentle Giant Ltd. Marketing Coordinator, Greg Crafts about what is to come later this year and for 2013. We would see many great surprises in additions to the Star Wars Jumbo Vintage Kenner line, The Hobbit, their premiere Honey Trap line, and a big surprise The Walking Dead.

AMC's The Walking Dead bookends

While we thought we would see AMC's The Walking Dead bookends or Sheriff Grime's badge, we would get a huge surprise to find out that the first pre-orders from Gentle Giant LTD. are mini busts of the Well Walker that we did see at SDCC and Sheriff Grimes mini bust.

 The Walking Dead Sheriff Grimes Mini Bust (with bonus Sheriff's hat!)

Imagine waking up one day and discovering that you’d missed the Apocalypse. That’s what happened to Rick Grimes. Once a Sherriff’s Deputy, he fell into a coma after being wounded in the line of duty. Upon waking up, he finds his town in ruins, his family missing and the dead walking the earth. Determined to survive, Rick must adapt to the new world around him. Difficult challenges face him and his band of refugees as they struggle against impossible odds for their lives… and their humanity.

From the screen to your shelf, Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the Sheriff Grimes Mini Bust. Based on the hit AMC television series, this bust boasts an exact likeness of actor Andrew Lincoln in his sheriff’s uniform as he appears in the show’s pilot episode. The Grimes mini bust comes pistol drawn, ready to take down criminals and walkers alike. This special Gentle Giant Direct version includes a bonus accessory – Rick’s Sheriff Hat! These limited-edition hand-numbered busts include matching certificates of authenticity and can, in a pinch, be used to defend against an attacking Walker.*

*claim of the defensive properties of our collectable mini busts not verified. Use against zombies at your own risk.

AMC's The Walking Dead Sheriff Grimes Mini Bust is now available for pre-order through Gentle Giant LTD. The price is $75 and the edition size is TBD. Gentle Giant LTD. creates the most detailed and amazing mini busts, so we know that they will do justice in The Walking Dead line! 

 The Walking Dead Well Walker Mini Bust

In the episode “Cherokee Rose,” survivors Dale and T-Dog find a walker at the bottom of Hershel’s well. In an attempt to salvage the water supply, they first try to lure, then drag, the walker out of it. Unfortunately, their attempts are unsuccessful, as the rotting, bloated corpse is bisected by the rope the survivors are using to hoist it out, spilling its tainted entrails and ruining the well.

The only safe way to bring a zombie home with you, this mini bust depicts the Well Walker in all of his undead, bloated glory! Cast in high quality polystone and painted by hand, this limited edition collectable mini bust is hand numbered and comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Perfect for any horror fan! Just keep this one away from the water supply…

The detail in AMC's The Walking Dead Well Walker is truly incredible. We had the opportunity to see the Walker at San Diego Comic Con during our tour at Gentle Giant LTD's booth. The Well Walker mini bust is now available for pre-order through Gentle Giant LTD. The price is $75 and the edition size is TBD.
