Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Extra Crispy, Zero Hero, Riled-Up Riley Minifigures 3-PackMore S.L.U.G. Zombies! The latest descendant of M.U.S.C.L.E. captures the spirit nicely and with 100 announced figures (not all of which are out yet), it's a meaty line. This series 3 set includes Extra Crispy, Zero Hero, Riled-Up Riley and a poster for your amusement.

This was a set I couldn't pass up, because it included two figures I knew I had to get including Extra Crispy. Clearly modeled after Colonel Sanders, this shambling figure carries a bucket of what I'm going to assume isn't chicken. With the glasses, suit, and beard, there's little mistaking this one for anything other than the company's founder/mascot, who enjoys a healthy line of collectible figures in Japan. Crispy here is loaded with damage, including a hole in his head to match the holes in his shoes. His suit is worn though, and there's not a lot of subtlety or nuance to be had. It's Colonel Sanders as a zombie. What more could you want for four bucks?

Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Extra Crispy, Zero Hero, Riled-Up Riley Minifigures 3-PackHow about a tribute to Shaun of the Dead? Riled-Up Riley recalls Simon Pegg's character Shaun. The figure retains the cricket bat and the tie on the forehead, plus there's what may be a pocket protector on his shirt. While some of the figures are parodies of famous movie heroes, this one is a pretty close tribute to the famed horror-comedy. One hand wears a watch and this one doesn't seem to have any gags hidden anywhere. It's as close as you'll probably get to a Shaun figure, if you don't count the several top-notch releases from Neca, but those are already off the market.

Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Extra Crispy, Zero Hero, Riled-Up Riley Minifigures 3-PackRounding out the set is a fairly straightforward parody of Superman called Zero Hero. Well, maybe not so much Superman, as the character design is basically a guy in a cape with fancy hair-- a big "Z" on his chest and back are a nifty original design, and his belt looks like a fairly common utility belt. His chewed-up visage doesn't recall anyone in particular, although it's worth noting that out of the zombie figures, his hair is probably some of the best maintained relative to his body. The cape has a hole in it, his clothes are coming apart, and he's peppered in bite marks. What's not to like?

Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Extra Crispy, Zero Hero, Riled-Up Riley Minifigures 3-Pack

I was surprised and delighted by this set, although there's nothing surprising or unexpected here. You get 3 roughly 2-inch high figures, unpainted, with decent sculpts. The rubbery figures are similar in texture to old collectible figures but the thinner piece of the cricket bat is pretty bendable. Having said that, none of the figures have any problems standing or maintaining a proper shape. I know that's a weird thing to say in a review of a new toy I opened literally minutes before writing this review, but I've bought a lot of toys that need minor repair work right out of the box over the years. These guys are as simple as you can hope for-- open them, and enjoy! Four bucks well spent.
