Hey guys,

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.

Cool!
I can't get enough of tiny mono-colored zombies..

edit:
Diamond Toychest has a bit of information about the 12-pack, it's going to be shaped like a tombstone!

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

OK, I got more info from work (Entertainment Earth) and we're posting these today. (No pics, but character names and the like.) Looks like there will be at least 6 waves of 3-packs this year, plus the 12-packs, and an assortment of carry cases.

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

So I've been doing random searches every now and then since this thread sprang up to see if any news pops up. Well looks like Jakks finally made a teaser site. You can see designs for about 20 of the 100 figures. Wonder if they mean 100 sculpts or same sculpts in different colors? Anyway here's the site.
