‘Walking Dead’ Producer Shares BTS Look at That Insane Spiked Walker

Whether or not The Walking Dead has begun to show its age, the makeup and VFX crew only have more fun with their undead designs as time wears on. Case in point, the spiked “Winslow” walker from Sunday’s “New Best Friends” marked a new visual benchmark for The Walking Dead, one which producer and gore guru Greg Nicotero shares new behind-the-scenes art and photos.

You’re warned of full Walking Dead Season 7 spoilers from here on out, but where “New Best Friends” only hinted at the spiked creature’s past significance to Pollyanna McIntosh’s “Jadis” and her junkyard gang, “Winslow” nonetheless marked an impressive visual threat for Rick to prove his skills against. Following the climactic Sunday battle, Nicotero shared some close-up artwork of the character’s jagged look:

You can also get an on-set look at Winslow being assembled, with performer Gino Crognale underneath the helmet:

Rick obviously snuffed out any chance of seeing poor Winslow again, but we’ll surely see more of the “Heapster” aesthetic when Rick and co. bring their offering of guns to Jadis. In the meantime, how next might The Walking Dead FX crew top their latest creation?
