I'm a sucker for toys that have unique plastic, so the Zillions of Mutated Bodies Infecting Everyone (ZOMBIE) Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark Minifigures were pretty much a must-buy. $5 on eBay? Sold! Glow in the dark blue, red, and orange plastic used to be slightly more common in the past, but as of late they just aren't seen much. As such, I jumped on these plastic figures on eBay recently because I assume that since blue glow in the dark is highly requested by fans and never gets made, something's up. So if nothing else, we should all grab some of these for the glow-in-the-dark toy rooms I assume we all have. The below show it actual glowing in the dark - some of the shots are shot with black light, hence the extra glowiness.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark Color

October Toys even sells these wholesale by the bucket - leaving many sellers to sell them either individually, or bagging up sets to sell online. A tub of these with multiple colors should set net you about 100 figures for $100. School Girl, Rockabilly, Bathtime, School Boy, and the Ape are in series 1 with a second series planned, but seemingly ultimately scrapped. Five figures were shown at Comic-Con 2012, but only one - the Zombie Pheyden - is going to see production as part of the OTMFG, nee OTMF, not OMFG line. Also, these guys are much larger than the recently released S.L.U.G. Zombies figures, so they don't play well together... but they do go great in the same collection.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark ColorSo we've got The Ape, which asks the oft-unasked question of why the zombie gene seems to only like people most of the time. Surely chimpanzees, with similar DNA to ours, must be delicious for the undead. And indeed it is - for the purposes of this set, anyway. The plastic looks murky, like a dirty bucket of water was cast as a toy unless it's actually glowing. The normal state is rather grimy, absorbing much of the sculpted detail. (To resolve this, buy another set in a different color. I did!) The Ape is carrying around The Cat, which is pretty amusing any way you slice it. The concept, not the cat. Don't slice the cat. At about 1 3/4-inches tall, he's the shortest figure in the set.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark ColorThe Bathtime Zombie is skinny and has a towel draped around his naughty bits, and like the other release has some difficulty standing. Details like his thin frame and almost-exposed spine are tough to see, although it's not too tough to make out the soap on a rope or his bath brush. You're going to want to prop him up against something, otherwise he's going to be difficult to handle - appropriate for such a slippery being.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark ColorThe School Boy loses some of his charm as a blue glowing guy, except for the fact he's a blue glowing guy. The creators gave him a propeller beanie, a uniform, and guts in one hand making while his right hand makes the Vulcan "Live Long and Prosper" salute. In the right light this is one nasty guy, and in the dark he's one nasty glowing blue guy.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark ColorThe Rockabilly Zombie, at 2 1/2 inches high, is the biggest figure in the set. With a torn shirt, absent arm, skinny jeans, and wallet chain he's sure to make the ladies weep for him because he's dead. The details on this figure were a little light so you don't get the feeling that you're missing too much here given how the plastic reacts to the light. I like it.

ZOMBIE Series 1 Blue Glow in the Dark ColorLastly we have the the Cheerleader Zombie, and she's far more confusing in this color because she doesn't immediately come off as a zombie. Sure, her breasts are easy to see - as are her abs and nipples - but the glow plastic tends to absorb her few gashes and wounds. Were she not carrying a bone in her hand, she'd not come off as an obvious member of the undead which is kind of a neat bonus. The reaction to this figure could quickly go from "she doesn't look half bad" to "oh my God is her cheek ripped open?" and that gives the figure an actual chance at scaring people. When's the last time that happened?

I really like the figures, particularly for the price and the glowing blue action feature. Since the line didn't warrant an additional series yet (or perhaps ever) it's all the more reason for you to go track these down on eBay or at a shop near you. $5 for 5 sizable mini-figures is a bargain, and it's not like you're going to stumble onto glow-in-the-dark blue plastic tomorrow in some other toy line. The properties of the plastic make them different and fun, so if you like a nice glowing figure these certainly fit the bill.
