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. Skybound.com 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!
And with Comic Style Andrea.
