The Walking Dead: Clementine Action Figure Announced

After starring in two seasons of Telltale's The Walking Dead video game, Clementine will finally be making her way to a toy collection near you.

Today at New York Comic-Con, Skybound Entertainment (makers of all things The Walking Dead) revealed the Clementine action figure from McFarlane Toys. Pricing and release date are both a mystery, but we do know that there will be two versions of the figure -- one clean and one blood splattered. Both versions of the figure come with a backpack, pistol, and hammer.

Players protected Clem in Season 1 of The Walking Dead and played as her in Season 2, which inspired this figure. Both of those games are making there way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this month, and Telltale confirmed Season 3 but hasn't divulged any details.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review

The Walking Dead: 400 Days does little to make us feel better about the nebulous, open-ended finale of The Walking Dead: The Game Season 1. In fact, meeting five brand new characters and seeing their lives torn apart only reinforces how heartbreaking the world of The Walking Dead is, but anyone who wants to know how Season 2 is going to begin -- or at least some of the characters we’re probably going to see in it -- owes it to him or herself to play this stellar adventure in what can only be called short story video game fiction.

400 Days is a $4.99 bridge between Season 1 and Season 2 of The Walking Dead: The Game. If you have a keen eye, you’ll see a familiar face or two, but this isn’t picking up where Episode 5 left off (even though it is reading your Season 1 save). Here, we play as five different characters through five different stories, each of which take place somewhere within a span of 400 days wrapped around a Georgia truck stop.
