In the SDCC Speculation Thread, Zach mentioned that there would be a WD set that would "spark a lot of discussion." Definitely vague and intriguing. Here are my thoughts that are sure to be way off the mark.

* Super hero Rick, Tyreese, Governor, and Michonne from the issue 75 hoax.

* Zombified Rick, Michonne, Carl, and Glenn from the Compedium One cover

* New characters from the arc that just started: Magna, 2 others, and limping Rick

The trend seems to be SDCC exclusives moving back to their traditional format of one-off bonus sets rather than vehicles to push out new characters to long-time collectors.

I think zombie versions of the key characters is probably a no brainer.

Rick through the ages! That would spark some discussion :)

You know given the "controversial" tag Zach has given this set the zombie cover Rick etc set seems to make the most sense.

I'd have to see it though to decide if I'd pick that one up.

If anything, a zombie group would be good for zombie customs if you don't want the main characters as zombies

Rick TTA would be awesome.

I see Zach's controversial comment as meaning something that is susceptible to criticism, rather than the content being specifically controversial.

Perhaps 'gore & bloody' versions of 'best of' characters we've already had.

Same figures, some extra red splatter details.

I'd actually be happy with that.

They're usually pretty easy to get. Luke usually does carry them.

It's not the figures themselves that will spark discussion, but rather the RV Camper shaped package that they come in. :)

You're right of course but there's always that one that just might sell out unsure.png

With the box sets often being story events we're finally getting a Tainted Meat set.

Dinner Time Dale and three cannibals.

Likely not happening but it would certainly spark conversations over how far a toy should go even in the context of a zombie property.

I can only think of a couple more disturbing/controversial possible sets but I know they will never happen.

I think everyone can forget about TV show Minimates. Forever.

And I specifically didn't say controversial, I just meant people would debate the set's merits here.

Sounds ominous.

Smells like black and white to me.

I'm going to guess a set that has:

Michonne

Rick

Glenn

and The Governor.

With WD several waves deep, DST wants to get the core characters into the hands of potentially new collectors who could no longer find the original stuff. A lot of potential new collectors see stuff at SDCC. They will be nearly straight re-releases, maybe new face tampos.

The debate about the merit here will be the age old debate between "more Wolverine and Spider-Man" vs. "new and unmade characters".
