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.

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.
