Each year at the New York Comic Con, Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment always has a special 5" action figure (or set) for fans. This year is no exception and sees the first ever figure of the Princess of Pittsburgh, Juanita Sanchez, straight from the pages of The Walking Dead comic.

Princess is a relatively new character, having first been introduced in issue 171. She is a childish but good-natured survivor that a group of scavengers led by Michonne comes across while traveling through Pittsburgh, PA. She ends up tagging along with the group on their journey and has since been accepted as one of the main group.

Joining Skybound’s exclusive line up of limited The Walking Dead action figures is the vibrant, child-at-heart Juanita Sanchez! With her self-proclaimed nickname, “Princess”, she comes equipped with her trusty machine gun and knife. 

As usual both a color and bloody black and white variant are available through the Skybound website, each retailing for $25.00 plus shipping. Will you be adding Princess to your growing collection this year?
