With Comic-Con International at San Diego only a few short weeks away, announcements of exclusive merchandise have begun coming out of the woodwork -- but a new Skybound and McFarlane Toys exclusive will have fans of Robert Kirkman's Image Comics series "The Walking Dead" reaching for their wallets. TV Guide has revealed the CCI 2012 exclusive action figure of fan-favorite "The Walking Dead" character Michonne, based on the character design by series artist Charlie Adlard.

The action figure features 22 points of articulation with a bevy of accessories including a hammer, pliers, a power drill, spoon and of course, Michonne's trusty katana sword. The figure is dressed in a removable poncho, blood-spattered leather jacket, purple top, striped skirt, jeans and boots -- and it can be yours for $25 at the Skybound booth.

Although the likeness of the figure is based on the comic version of Michonne, fans will no doubt be even more excited for this exclusive considering the recent first look at Danai Gurira as Michonne for season three of "The Walking Dead" live-action television show on AMC. Skybound plans to bring "The Walking Dead" to Comic-Con full-force in anticipation of "The Walking Dead" #100 including "The Walking Dead Escape," a massive survival course built over Petco Park for CCI 2012.
