SLUG Zombies 01


JAKKS Pacific has a new series of mini figures. The S.L.U.G. Zombies (S.L.U.G. stands for Scary Little Ugly Guys) will bring back fond memories of M.U.S.C.L.E. men and Monster In My Pocket collectibles. Featuring various pop culture references, each Zombie features wacky names and stories (included on a Zombie Guide sheet).
