The Walking Dead - ALPHA!

The Walking Dead - Comic Series - Skybound Exc - McFarlane Toys 2015

I still haven't read any of The Walking Dead comics, but this figure is really making me want to start. All information I'm gleaning about this figure is pure conjecture from the packaging graphics.. but it's some pretty awesome conjecture. I gather that Alpha is the leader of a band of survivors that wear skinned walker heads as masks to "cloak" themselves. It's a pretty gross and cool concept. I really hope Alpha and her tribe make it into the show. I'm guessing she's on the "good" side since The Walking dead always likes to play with the "appearances can be deceiving" concepts, and she looks pretty gruesome... so she must be friendly, right? Time will tell. has released a lot of great exclusives over the past few years. (Skybound is Robert Kirkman's Entertainment company FYI). It seems to be a great way to get us characters that aren't a good fit for the stores. Hopefully there are many more.  Let's check out Alpha below!

We'll start with her unmasked head.  It's rare to get a shaved-head female action figure.

Alpha comes with an alternate masked head, a bloody machete, and a sawed-off shotgun.

Here are some images of Alpha from the comics.  Don't read the panels if you don't want any spoilers!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the other Walking Dead Skybound Exclusives: Michonne and Clementine.

And with Comic Style Andrea.



  1. I'm not to this point in the comics but I'm close and catching up. Neat figure! The only Walking Dead figure I own is a Michonne, I will have to blog about her someday.

    1. I have all the comics (or a least a large portion of them) in digital format. Eventually I'll read them, but for now I like that the show is a surprise every episode.

  2. No spoilers but btw Alpha is NOT one of the goodies... haha

  3. No spoilers, but she's pretty much the worst D:

  4. Oh no! Shall I start referring to her as the Governess then? Actually It's pretty amazing that there hasn't been a real female villain yet (besides the hospital cop lady).
