I am a bit of a late comer to The Walking Dead, having just finished watching season 4, I am already having withdrawal symptoms as I wait for season 5 which is due to premier in October 2014
The show has become a phenomenal worldwide success, partly due to the cast of Rick Grimes and co but also due to the writers who have a way of throwing you a surprise or two, just as I was getting to like the new improved badass Andrea wham she’s gone and what about Hershel the old wise man of the group it was like killing Yoda from Star Wars, but that’s what makes it so great and unpredictable none of the characters are truly ever safe which makes for addictive viewing.
Anyway to try and keep my mind occupied while I wait for the show to return I thought I would take a look at some of the new Walking Dead collectables that are due out for release.
