Ah, one product got stopped. Thanks.


I'm no expert but in my opinion it looks bad for the remaining series. Last time a toy was discontinued with emails like that was Thundercats. But hey, maybe we will see tons of series 1 and the others.

I agree it has the feeling that the line is ending with series 4. Entertainment Earth removed wave 5 products from its site too, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's because they are so easily available at Target that they aren't a big EE seller anymore.

I think I read that someone heard from a Jakks rep that the Aliens and Monsters segments of the line won't happen at all. I hope they at least release the last two waves of zombies.

I enjoyed this line of toys a lot, but one of the main reasons I wanted to support it was because I wanted to see Aliens and Monsters. I think zombies are a bit played out, although the humor of this line made it fun. I would have liked to have seen what their artists could have come up with when they didn't have to do people anymore.

To this day, I still haven't seen series one in a single store by me except for the mini coffins at Walgreens.

I know there's no official word yet, but if the line truly does stop after S4 it will be a real shame. There's so much potential in the monsters and aliens (assuming they didn't make the aliens all look like those generic "little green men"). And it would really suck if some of the characters on the Zombie poster checklist went unreleased.

But it was always hard to see the line doing that well when at first the distribution is horrible and then stores get clogged with an over-abundance of a particular series. I'm wondering why they produced so much of series 2.

I think the Aliens and Monsters would appeal more to kids as well. Kids kinda shy away from Zombies lol with some exceptions like my son

I have heard from a Jakks person that 4 and 5 should all be shipping and that the only issue was the collectors cases, which held odd amounts any ways.

Thank you for letting us know. That is great to hear. I really hope they'll consider moving forward with monsters and aliens as well. I think those lines could allow for more variety in sculpts and possibly appeal to a wider audience.
