With the new series on AMC, I'm really wishing that minimate releases weren't slowing down with their line.

i really wish that this liscenece covered show figures too cause lets face it the show is signifficantly more popular especially to casual collectors and even in macfarlanes case the show figures seem to sell much better than the comic ones

I believe it's because McFarlane has the show license that DST can't acquire it.

God help me if DST does get the show license because I'm a much bigger fan of the show than the book.

yeah but macfarlane also has the licence for the comics and many other companies have the rights to the tv show

perhaps it's because McFarlane has a license to do small tv show figures?

The TV license would be a big investment. Given the product categories available to us, it would only gain us a few characters who are significantly different from the comics. And I highly doubt sales would increase significantly because we could get a few extra characters in Minimates form.

I'd sooner re-invest in all the common characters to get the TV characters than buy black & white variants of ones I already own. But that's me.

Well, we didn't have to sign a new, expensive license to make the B&W figures, and nobody is required to buy anything.

I don't know that the show license is available to us -- there are other licensors than McFarlane, doing things more similar to what we do -- but I don't see us acquiring it any time soon, if ever.

Can we get a generic "Handsome Biker with a crossbow" Minimates then?

Not if one doesn't appear in the comic book.

Not sure we've ever made a crossbow, or that one has turned up in the book, but I've seen some great QCs already. Next series will have some rough and tumble types that might make a good base. Maximum ZOmbies had a biker.

I agree with this:

The only character I would want from the show is surprisingly Rick. I just love his appearance in the show. Pack him with the crawling zombie from episode 1 and I'm sold.

Negan's Saviors had all sorts of weapons, including crossbows. I think it might have even been Dwight, and we should definitely get a Dwight figure when we hit All Out War.

Picked up the full wave, it's solid. Carl is the clear winner and comes with the fire zombie which is awesome. Both Michonne in dress and cop uniform come without the bandanna. I will try to post pics tonight.

I picked up Rick & Douglas and Carl & Burning Zombie. I've never been a big Michone fan, so I passed on those sets. Carl is top notch, but I feel like the cheek bones make him look just a bit too old.

I bought the same 2 ones! I'm a huge Michonne fan but I didn't feel like I needed any of those looks. Kinda wasted slots I would have preferred a number of other figs. A father gaberial would have been perfect timing for them since him being big on the show as of now. Or even jesus's bf even.
