Sideshow Collectibles' Update: The Dead

As a zombie fan, a toy fan, and a zombie toy fan, Sideshow Collectibles' in-house line of zombie collectibles are my personal favorite. Their line, The Dead, started as a run of 12" zombie toys, collectibles. Shortly after, they released a Premium Format edition of Patient Zero (review). For those not familiar with Sideshow, their Premium Format series is 1/4 scale of life-like goodness featuring real clothing. Recently, they have taken The Dead in some new directions.

Not too long ago Sideshow released a vinyl collectible of Mort, the zombie. Mort stands approximately 10" and has an "animated" type appearance. This version also featured a classic black and white or grayscale color scheme. This edition was limited to just 250 pieces and available for $69.99. Earlier this week to help you prepare for Halloween, Sideshow released the color version of Mort. This version is limited to 500 pieces and, incredibly, is still available for $59.99.

The Dead have gone from 12" figure, to Premium Format monster, to animated cute. Now let us bring out "The Specimens". This latest incarnation of The Dead features three "Legendary Scale" busts. Sideshow's Legendary Scale bust lines are approximately 1:2 scale of pure, quality collectible. The first of this new line for The Dead is a trio and limited to only 200 pieces. Amazingly, these are still available for $224.99 direct from Sideshow. If interested, buy them now as I guarantee they will not be available for long nor will they be available at this price in the future.

"The latest addition to the Sideshow Original The Dead collection, Sideshow proudly brings you The Dead: Specimens Legendary Scale Bust Set. This plague-ridden trio, including Specimen 090: Probe, Specimen 187: Bullet, and Specimen 419: Lobotomy, depicts just a few of the desperate attempts to eliminate The Dead. Each piece is individually painted and finished, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles product. The Dead: Specimens Legendary Scale Bust Set is an outstanding addition to any display."
