SLUG Zombies Series 3 12-Pack

As promised, here is a closer look at the SLUG Zombies Series 3 12 pack that I got from ConnQuest as part of the Great Pumpkin Exchange. The distribution model is the same as the previous two series: one 12-pack and four 3-packs. And the only way to get all 16 unique characters is to buy all the packs which will leave you with some duplicates. There's a few more generic types in this set than celeb-inspired ones.

SLUG Zombies series 3 Deadlifter Towering Terror Squeamy Sashimi

The Deadlifter - Absolutely love the detached arms and his face kind of says "Oh well, what can you do?"
The Towering Terror - Anybody want a peanut?
Squeamy Sashimi - Good detail, right down to the body parts on his tray

SLUG Zombies series 3 Louie Fingers, Double-Barrel Carol, Extra Crispy

Louie Fingers - Although his looks and profile make him to be a gangster, I am seeing the Stooges' Moe. There was one that looked like Curly in Series 2 and Louie only has the first two fingers on his left hand sticking out like he's ready for an eye poke.
Double-Barrel Carol - Sort of a post zombie apocalypse Velma type. I like that we're getting more hunter characters.
Extra Crispy - I think he prefers thigh meat...

SLUG Zombies series 3Tragic Magic, Base-Hit Bones, Singer Mortis

Tragic Magic - Probably one of my favorites in this group. How can you go wrong with a decapitated rabbit head?
Base-Hit Bones - Using his leg as a bat and a bat for his leg. Sa-wing, batter!
Singer Mortis - Thank you, thankyouverymuch.

SLUG Zombies series 3 Jeet Kune Dead, Johnny Two-Guns, Zero Hero

Jeet Kune Dead - Enter the Undead! There's just something about the ones that have parts of their bodies where they're not supposed to be that cracks me up.
Johnny Two-Guns - The body looks like Chuck Norris, the head...?
Zero Hero - Look! Up in the sky! It's a...wait, what is that?!

They've done another fantastic job with this latest series of figures. The poster showing the first 100 figures shows there's still plenty of good stuff coming: Ash from the Evil Dead, Shaun from Shaun of the Dead, a zombie dog, Ripley from Aliens, the Dude and lots more. The line is either doing well or has horrible distribution since I know people that still have yet to see any in the wild yet.

I'm still holding out hope that the rumored Aliens and Monsters lines will see the light of day because I know they'll be just as good as the Zombies.

LittleWeirdo from MinifigCollection has posted a photo on Flickr of Target exclusive Christmas 3-packs, which I'm currently hunting for. Looks like you get a repack hunter and two new holiday themed greenies.

    1. Yeah, I'm only collecting ones I like. I actually just set up a trade with someone and he's going to swap me six Series 1 figs for six of 2 & 3. I only ever found Series 1 in the blind boxes here and this will knock out 6 out of the 7 Series 1 that I want.

  2. I had to stop with the first two series. I like them but I feel it is sufficient.

    1. That's why I'm only collecting ones that specifically appeal to me. I think if I were trying to get em all I'd lose interest.
