Full Details For The Walking Dead Special Edition Discs – And, Yes, That Includes A B&W Alternative

After I posted details on the site this morning of how The Walking Dead is taking on Comic-Con, or at least its elevators, I was sent an e-mail with full details of what the double-dip special edition will contain. Technically that means I scooped the press  release. So, technically that means I should be carried up and down the main floor of Comic-Con on the shoulders of adoring fans. Factually, that would take a lot of fans.

Strong ones.

Here’s the list:

  • Pilot Episode: The B&W Version
  • Audio Commentaries On All 6 episodes
  • We Are The Walking Dead
  • Bring Out The Dead: KNB And The Art of Making Zombies
  • Digital Decay: The VFX of The Walking Dead
  • No More Room in Hell: The Walking Dead Phenomenon
  • Adapting The Dead
  • Killer Conversations: Frank Darabont & Greg Nicotero

The old special features from the previous release:

  • The Making of The Walking Dead
  • Inside The Walking Dead: Episodes 1 – 6
  • A Sneak Peek with Robert Kirkman
  • Behind The Scenes Zombie Make-Up Tips
  • Convention Panel with the Producers
  • The Walking Dead Trailer

Extra Footage includes:

  • Zombie School
  • Bicycle Girl
  • On Set with Robert Kirkman
  • Hanging with Steven Yeun
  • Inside Dale’s RV
  • On Set with Andrew Lincoln

The discs will be released in the US on October 4th. There will be three versions – DVD, Blu-ray and a special edition Blu-ray tin which contains:

an exclusive wearable zombie mask from NECA designed by the series own make-up artist, Greg Nicotero. The first 100,000 units of the Blu-ray and Limited Edition Collector’s Tin together includes an EXCLUSIVE Cryptozoic The Walking Dead trading card.

Sounds like the upgrade is well worth it. And I’ve got a hunch we might be seeing a lot of Nicotero designed zombie faces walking the streets this Halloween.
