Thanks for the info, Burty- a bit surprised that's not been mentioned on here. I had a hunt around but couldn't find any images.

Yes they did bud - a guy posted some pics up on the Minifigure Militia Facebook page. He was sent them by the guy following a review he did on them. He also has some figures from the 'unreleased' later series.

 

Can anyone share a link?

 

Thanks!

Awesome interview. I'm so bummed after seeing that ghostbusters parody. and that I still never got my Charlie Bronson figure.

Thanks, burty.

 

Man, they even produced and cancelled the carrying case. I wonder how many Entertainment Earth pre-orders were cancelled when Jakks killed the line.

 

Cool color plastic for the glow figures. Decayin' Dom is still my favorite from all the series. Wish I could've gotten the glow version too.

Thanks for the repost Burty!!

So someone clarify this for me... Were the special glow in the dark ones released (had they been released rather...) WITH the carrying case? As a premium?

Wow... coolest pictures I've seen in a long time... they were really close to releasing these.  What a shame.  Best line ever in my opinion...

Loved these little guys when they first popped up, so disappointing that even parodies are being targeted and people aren't even able to have fun with those anymore. Great read though, even if I am a year late to the news!

I return to this thread every once in awhile to check for updates. I still need those unreleased S.L.U.G Zombies in my life. I need that eye-popping monster line too but I won't push my luck today.

Yeah I like to pour over those pics every now and then too.  I had a preorder for the collectors case in too. Until it was cancelled.

The worst part is knowing that cases of some unreleased ones are most likely still sitting somewhere collecting dust, with no way to get them.

Maybe we can keep holding onto a bit of hope for more SLUGs. My exchange this morning on Instagram with one of the SLUG creators (@beelinecreative):

 

Me: Still wondering if there's any chance of somehow getting those unreleased ones out? So many collectors still want 'em badly! I wish we could at least get the ones that were produced but unreleased.

 

His response: Stay tuned, we're hoping to make an announcement soon!

 

 

No concrete details and not gonna get my hopes TOO high yet, but sounds promising!  :)

That would be amazing. I need glow Decayin' Dom. My 6 year-old seriously looked like he was going to cry when I showed him pics of the produced ones that weren't released.
