Why McFarlane Toys NYCC 2017 exclusives are so disappointing

NYCC 2017 was my only hope for more Telltale Walking Dead figures. I was pulling for a Kenny figure at least. McFarlane Toys is bringing some exclusive The Walking Dead figures. And they’re a pair of essential characters even if they’re not my boy Kenny.

The Walking Dead Ezekiel & Shiva two pack. These are the same figures from the Shiva Force pack just repainted in traditional colors. There’s a classic and bloody variant.

Are you ready for All Out War? Skybound and McFarlane Toys are! This Walking Dead 2-pack featues the leader of The Kingdom, Ezekiel, and his ferocious sidekick and tiger, Shiva. This Skybound exclusive 2-pack features Ezekiel in his All Out War color scheme. He comes with his trusty cane sword and sheath and of course, a leash for Shiva.


There’s also a Beta figure in both standard and black and white bloody variant. Here’s his product description:

Beta serves as the de-facto leader of the Whisperers group and seeks revenge on Negan for killing his first in command, Alpha. This 6-inch figure also comes with two hunting knives.

While those are two useful comic book additions I was hoping for more. Maybe a 5-inch Fear the Walking Dead figure in addition to some more video game additions.

Saga fans essentially get to complete their collection with this new set.

This Saga exclusive features Alana and Marko’s daughter Hazel along with her babysitter, Izabel. Hazel comes with her beloved doll, Ponk Konk, and Izabel comes with a plastic stand so she can watch over Hazel.

I really wish McFarlane Toys would go all-in with a line of Invincible figures. That’s a universe begging for a 7-8 wave figure line.
