Upcoming SLUG Zombies
So I keep saying I'm not collecting SLUG Zombies. And I'm not, even though my figure count has grown to about two dozen over the past couple weeks. I have to admit, this line has a lot of nostalgic appeal and reminds me of my MUSCLE collecting days. Also, they are on clearance and plentiful at Target right now, and I can justify getting a few figures I don't particularly care about in order to get the ones I really think are keen. All for CHEAP!
Anyways, I just discovered that, like with MUSCLE back in the day, there's a poster of all the Zombies and Zombie Hunter figures (unlike MUSCLE, you can download on the 'net, because back then there was no internet) and it shows the first 100 SLUG Zombies (and Zombie Hunters), some of which have not yet been released.
If the line continues (let's face it, the massive Target purge isn't a good sign) there will be few more great pop culture homages and plain old awesome zombies and hunters I will want to add to my non-collection. These will be designated as Series 5 and Series 6 I presume (sine the Christmas wave was not numbered.)
One figure I am looking forward to is the Axel Rose homage above named 'Perry Perish' who should appear in Series 5 along with...
But none of these compare to the piece de resistance...
the whole poster here, or just click the following two pics to see what may or may not be coming soon. The unreleased undead begin at #67 and include some creative and surprising selections. Is 'Feel My Wrath McGrath' a maskless Casey Jones? And 'Charlie Pistols' is clearly Charles Bronson (and probably the closest a figure's name has yet come to it's actual homage.) There's Amelia Earhart, Harry Potter, The Dude and more!
