S.L.U.G Zombies - Decomposing Dan


The S.L.U.G Zombies are starting to pile up around here like...um...like a stack of dead bodies. I you've been on the fence about picking some of these guys up, Target has them on clearance: $5 for a 12 pack and $2 for the 3 packs. You can't beat that with a dismembered arm! Series 3 seems to be the most plentiful around me. Today I found eight cases of Series 3 coffins at one store!

The most recent series 4 I've only found briefly at one store but managed to get almost all of them in one shot. Jakks Pacific did something a little different with Series 4. In previous series you had to buy the 12 pack and all four of the 3 packs because each 3 pack had one unique figure in it. So you'd end up with 8 duplicates of ones you got in the 12 pack.

With Series 4, two of the 3 packs are all duplicates of those in the 12 pack. You only have to get the other two 3 packs to complete the 16 figure series. Good news for collectors, but I'm not sure what this blowout clearance means for the future of these lil green guys.

Now that I've thrown lots of numbers in your face, let's get on with the introductions!

Decomposing Dan

S.L.U.G. Zombie Jakks Pacific Decomposing Dan Series 4

Previous Job: Painter
Likes: Muscle cars & candy bars
Dislikes: Working overtime
Favorite Food: Peanut butter n' belly sandwich

Now the first thing you might notice about Dan here is that someone decided to give him a hand with his painting. Ok, it's more likely that he took it from someone...along with their forearm! He's also got quite the nasty wound on his right knee where you can see bone poking out. No happy little trees for this painter!

I'm guessing that's his tongue hanging out between his teeth because you know, when you're making arts you do that thing where you stick your tongue out to make it come out better. It would have been kinda fun if they made it his ear instead, a la Van Gogh. Like plenty other S.L.U.G. Zombies, he's missing one shoe. Somewhere in this city is a massive pile of mismatched shoes. It's a conspiracy!

Decomposing Dan is a great example of what the typical S.L.U.G. Zombie can be.

If you have spares figures and want to trade, check out the Toy Trading tab and maybe we can swap some zombies.
