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!
