S.L.U.G. Zombies Series 4 Hunters

 
If you've got swarms of little green zombie figures, it only stands to reason they need someone to fight against, right? Here are the remaining figures from S.L.U.G. Zombies Series 4: the humans! Please excuse my playing with the photo filters.

Buckskin Bill

S.L.U.G. Zombie series 4 buckskin bill
He's stopped on a dime because that's the only way he'd stand up
 Survival Skill: Wrote the book, "Survivial Skills"
 Likes: His trusty sidekick, Rascal
Dislikes: When Rascal has an accident
Favorite Quote: "Who waits 'til you see the whites of their eyes? Just shoot!"

Ah, another zombie hunter out of time. It only makes sense considering the wide variety of time periods the zombies are coming from. Bill's decked out in the standard Daniel Boone frontiersman gear, complete with flintlock rifle. He's also got a coonskin cap, except his isn't dead! That's a great example of taking the figure just a bit further to make it funny.

Johnson

S.L.U.G. Zombie series 4 Johnson

Survival Skill: Sure fire aim
Likes: Unloading two guns at once
Dislikes: Cleaning out her hamster's cage
Favorite Quote: "They call me...Johnson."

Twin pistols, fingerless gloves, tiny backpack, ponytail. There's no question what video game vixen inspired this character! I have no idea why they went with the name Johnson though.

Sawblade Sampson

S.L.U.G. Zombie series 4

Survival Skill: A saw for a hand, a shotgun in the other!
Likes: Sharpening his sawblade
Dislikes: Being asked to carve the turkey every Thanksgiving
Favorite Quote: "How about a haircut? I'll start just below the chin."

I hesitate to even say this is "inspired by" because the resemblance is dead on. Sure it looks more like a giant electric carving knife than a chainsaw but I'm not telling him! 
Hail to the king, baby!

Play-It-Safe Sammy

[No photo on record]

Survival Skill: Run & hide
Likes: His industrial strength hazmat suit
Dislikes: Sharp objects
Favorite Quote: "Don't forget to wash your hands!"

Sammy is playing it so safe, I don't even have a photo of him! He's the only figure from series 4 that I don't have but I'm not concerned. As you may guess from his bio, he's decked out in a full body hazmat suit and is toting a machine gun. Personally, when I think weapons and hazmat suits I'm thinking of a flamethrower. But that's just me.

And that wraps up Series 4 of S.L.U.G Zombies! Will there be more? The site's poster checklist shows graphics for Series 5 and 6. Hopefully we'll get some news on the future of S.L.U.G.s from New York Toy Fair later this month.
