Going into Toy Fair 2012, we fully expected a ton of new zombie-related merchandise. With the currently pop culture popularity off those brain-eating corpses, there's just no stopping their undead merchandising machine! however, JAKKS Pacific managed to turn our heads thanks to a new line of toys that have a special nostalgic quality to us 80's babies. The S.L.U.G. (Scary Little Ugly Guys) Zombies are an homage of sorts to the classic M.U.S.C.L.E. line of tiny, single-colored wrestlers. The S.L.U.G.s are a little larger than their distant cousins, but have that same appeal thanks to some tremendous (and hilarious) sculpts.
JAKKS Pacific is delivering collectability and fun like never before with its new lineup of 2” figures called S.L.U.G. ZOMBIES Scary Little Ugly Guys™. Each Zombie features wacky names and stories, such as Neil Armgone, Grave Lincoln and Braineatin’ Brandon. Kids will love to collect and play with these unique figures! Choose from single blind packs ($1.99), 3-packs ($3.99) and coffin-shaped 12-packs ($9.99). With over 100 figures to collect this year alone, S.L.U.G. Zombies is a craze that won't die!
Before we fully start the photo barrage, the S.L.U.G. figures are designated by two colors: pink for living humans, and green for the living dead. below you'll find but a few of our favorite Zombies from the display. we honestly can't wait to add this line to our collections!
