Happy Halloween!! S.L.U.G. Zombies (wave 3)


In 2012 Jakks Pacific released a new line of small figures which was their own take on toys such as the classic M.U.S.C.L.E. series or Monsters in my Pocket. 4 waves were released in various packaging at retail before the line would disappear into obscurity.

Back in 2013 I did a post of the 4th and final wave of S.L.U.G. Zombies, a Christmas themed wave. I had originally planned to do a post on the previous 3 waves, but over the years I see to have lost/misplaced/sold the majority of the other figures I had. I recently found several from the 3rd wave so let's take a look at those.

  1. This was a fantastic line of minifigures. I hate that it ended so abruptly with so many cool figures teased but never released.

    1. I agree. They did the Christmas wave and then they just disappeared.
