S.L.U.G. Zombies

A few days back I went to Toys R Us to waste some time, sure enough I left the store with a little less money than I came in with.  I didn't go too crazy luckily, what I bought was cheap; but don't let that word fool you, they're still pretty damn cool.


When I see the company Jakks Pacific all I'm reminded off was the somewhat bland wrestling toys I was obsessed with as a kid.  I guess they've branched out a bit though because while at TRU I saw they were making not only MIB 3 toys, but also these little guys.

These are called "S.L.U.G. Zombies" and they're very reminiscent to (zombiefied) Monsters in My Pocket.  I loved MIMP as a kid, so I couldn't resist.  I decided to go with the pack that contained the ghoul bursting out of what could very well be a drum of Trioxin.  Also included was a rotting pharaoh and a decaying postman.  S.L.U.G. Zombies are available in a few different packs, single, three pack, and a coffin shaped 12 pack.  Also available is a carrying case which includes a few glow in the dark characters.

Now I realize some collectors might write these guys off.  Sure, they're a bit nostalgic, sure they're certainly geared towards kids, but take a look at this character poster...Not only are they releasing a ton of these guys, but a lot of them you might recognize.  Not only do we get a few zombified celebs but we also get S.L.U.G. versions of Ash, Charles Bronson, and Dirty Harry among a ton of others.


I personally cannot wait to pick up more of these!
