More often than not, hordes of undead nazi zombies attack your hapless infantry squad and it's a struggle just to stay ahead of them, much less kill them all. They growl, they claw...their eyes glow which is really the freakiest part. Well, it appears that Hollywood finally took notice that we love us some "this day in zombie history" battles and made a whole movie to satiate our hunger for undead soldiers. ...And it's from J.J.Abrams to boot...

NYCC 2018: McFarlane Toys Enters the Game of Thrones

McFarlane Toys Game of Thrones Action Figures Night King
McFarlane has been re-acquainting themselves with rabid action figure fans the world over with their mega popular Stranger Things toy line, alongside ongoing Destiny, Call of Duty and Walking Dead additions and the newly arrived Star Trek figures. McFarlane have always been known for their sculpting excellence, but have generally stepped back from providing a great level of articulation, rendering their action figures fairly action-less. That changed with Stranger Things and other recent additions to their toy lines, and hence, the newly recharged excitement! Now word of McFarlane picking up the Game of Thrones license should be raising more than a few eyebrows...
