The new Diamond Previews (January 2012) has a new batch of little rubber guys called S.L.U.G. Zombies. From the illustration, they seem to be unpainted and are sold in 3- and 12-packs. I see a Pharaoh, a guy crawling out of some ooze, and a mailman, I guess. I'll snap a pic shortly if someone doesn't beat me to the punch.
Names include "King Guts," "Piece Mail Pete," "Bite Tyson," and "John B. Gone." I'm thrilled to see a major player like Jakks pushing for this kind of product... not a big fan of zombie stuff myself but hey, if it inspires more of this, fantastic. From the image, they're all one-colored green figures so I would assume they might glow in the dark. The mockup packaging indicates "Series 1", too. Due to it being in Previews it's a safe bet it'll be in the USA and elsewhere.
Based on the pricing in the little guide, I'd wager 3-packs will be about $5-$6 and 12-packs will be $12-$15.

I can't get enough of tiny mono-colored zombies..
Diamond Toychest has a bit of information about the 12-pack, it's going to be shaped like a tombstone!

Hopefully, it's a solid line, and Jakks makes more minis.
I'll cross my fingers.

So we got OMFGs, some form of Battle Beasts, and these for 2012 so far... what's next?

Man everyone seems to be jumping on the 80's mini figure bandwagon lately.

Whoever sees these in stores first, you've gotta get us a heads up and pics with M.U.S.C.L.E.S with the quickness.
It says on the TRU site, "in stores" which they have when it's in stock...so TRU might be a good stop tomorrow

At toyfair they have them on display, and there is a flesh color too.
