I saw Zillions of Mutated Bodies Infecting Everyone (ZOMBIE) Series 1 Neon Orange Minifigures on eBay and bought it, because October Toys does good work and I really liked OMFG. (And based on the photos I thought they might be flesh labeled wrong. Nope!) Admittedly, I'm not a horror/zombie guy, but I do like monsters and this kind of product so I bit. Prior to this quintet of brains-munchers, there were a few hand-cast or otherwise low-run figures which you can't have, because the run is too low. Ah well. But you can get these, in many colors, from numerous sellers, at pretty good prices. I picked up this set on eBay for $5 plus $2.50 shipping. It was labeled orange, the manufacturer says they're neon orange, but dang if they don't seem red to me. Talking to numerous major toy manufacturers, I suggest you take a look at smaller low-run figures like these because Chinese manufacturing prices are skyrocketing. While no less impressive than larger toys, particularly large designer toys, the ZOMBIE figures are certainly much cheaper and appropriately ugly.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Neon Orange Color

As is tradition for this kind of figure, several colors are available and October Toys even sells them wholesale by the bucket. Like you can get a tub of these with multiple colors, 100 figures for $100. School Girl, Rockabilly, Bathtime, School Boy, and the Ape are in series 1 with a second series due, well, probably next year at this rate. The figures were shown at Comic-Con 2012 and go beyond just the normal zombie-ness to also add in Pheyden. These predate Jakks Pacific's Slug Zombies line by quite some time, and while the Jakks line is closer in tone and style to M.U.S.C.L.E., these figures are closer to 2 1/2-inches tall (for the big ones) and have what could best be called more "realistic" detail. As a 21st-century pop culture staple, we're seeing a big surge in the undead as toys go lately.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Neon Orange ColorGeorge of October Toys told me that every series should have a sort of a gag figure, with The Ape fitting the bill for the first series. No doubt inspired by Koko with the little kitten in its hand, this rotting simian is thrashing about but is being surprisingly kind to the cat by, well, not eating it. At 1 1/2-inches high, he's the smalest of the bunch of flesh wounds, exposed mucle, and puncture bite marks. The cat, oddly, remains just fine.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Neon Orange ColorThe Bathtime Zombie presents a number of questions and is the only figure in the batch that gave me trouble standing up. He has a soap-on-a-rope, a brush, and a towel which is sliding down slowly. There's not as much decay here, but there's a huge hole punched in his skull and weird, warped legs. He's quite thin, and you can see his spine on his back because of this. He also seems a little short relative to the rest of the cast.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Neon Orange ColorThe School Boy has a propeller beanie, a uniform, and his own guts in his hand making him both one of the goofiest and grossest figures in the bunch. There's a torn leg, intestines, and oh yeah-- an eye is missing. Another funny small detail, his right hand is making the Vulcan "Live Long and Prosper" gesture.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Neon Orange ColorThe tallest figure in the set is the Rockabilly Zombie at roughly 2 1/20inches high. He's in pretty good shape, minus the lost arm. Sure, his shirt has a tear in the back but he's still got his wallet chain, fancy-pants boots, and toolish skinny jeans topped by hair that would even impress Conan O'Brien. He has a little skull on his belt buckle and in many respects feels like the signature figure in the set.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Neon Orange ColorCompleting the set is the Cheerleader Zombie, complete with huge boobs, sculpted nipples, insane abs, and a chunk of her face missing. Much like the cheerleaders in my high school, she also seems to have something carved in her leg. The cheerleader carries a bone in her hand plus wears high boots which should offer her no protection against the rampaging hordes of flesh-hungry undead. At about 2 1/3-inches high, she's the second tallest figure in the set.

Each figure has no accessories and no articulation. What you see is essentially what you get, and I think I'm on board for series 2. For the low asking price, you can't go wrong with these figures, especially considering all the colors you have to choose from these days. They're both bigger and cheaper than OMFG. Series 2 appears to sport Pheyden, a Mouseketeer, a convention goer, a lunchlady, and a half-torso for your amusement. I figure you're going to be looking for ward to series 2, too.
