I would put the feel kind of in-between M.U.S.C.L.E. and MIMP Not quite as squishy as MIMP but slightly more bendable than M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors of either will dig the material I would assume Posted Image

Tried contacting Jakks about these, to make sure they won't just be sold at Toys R Us...Key word is tried. After several emails over the last 2 few weeks, I have got no response at all. I hope this isn't a sign on how they run the company and the quality of this line (like Moose...how some figures are impossible to get and they just don't care). :unknw:

Very expensive being that a 12 pack is $9.99.

I think it's funny also that O.M.F.G comes out and then S.L.U.G hits lol who copied who

Yeah, these jokers on Ebay trying to charge $3.50 a figure, have got it all bent.
I'll gladly pay $10 for a dozen. Damned scalpers.

its a shame there were so few zombies, i wonder if they had have done the get the community (i cant spell that word) behind them Kickstarters thingy they would have done more with them. A decent sized amount to "collect" is a draw to some people and a set of four (or thereabouts) isnt the same. I wish i could replicate that feeling of having a blind ten pack of mini boglins or MIMP from woolworths... i am ranting.

I mean, it didn't exactly take a whole lot of innovation, to come up with little plastic zombies, and a 'witty' acronym.

Besides, both are just piggy-backing Robert Kirkman, anyways.

Blind ten packs were always the best..even though the 10 pack garbage cans full of Muscle weren't completely blind, they were always the coolest
