Posess Your Zombie Doppelganger

Who hasn't wondered what they would look like once the zombie virus takes over?  How would you have been infected?  How much of your flesh will be torn off before you escape the horde in order to die alone and eventually change into one of them?  Would your skin be pale from a fresh reanimation or blue?  Or maybe green?  Now that your zombie self is fresh in your mind, allow us to take that image and create a one-of-a-kind collectible capturing your vision.  And what self-respecting zombie fan reading a blog about zombies and toys wouldn't want that?  Are you a fierce rage-infected killer or a docile, mindless drone? 

As heard on Kevin Smith's S.I.R. network, Zombies & Toys can make your dream a reality.  We work with artist, Philip Hynes, to create a collectible that you will cherish forever.  Literally.  Because when the zombie apocolypse does eventually overcome you, this cherished item can be carried around for eternity.  What irony, you wondering around as a zombie clutching a sculpted bust of yourself as a zombie.

With the holidays around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to showcase the talents of Philip and explain the process and steps we take to make your dream a reality.

*  First, rush over to The Zombie Toy Store and add a custom magnet or bust to your shopping cart and checkout as usual.

*  In 24 to 48 hours, you will be contacted by master craftsman, Philip.  That's less time than it would take for the virus to take over!  Hopefully. 

*  Be prepared to answer Phil's email with details about your zombie self.  Any particular physical damage?  Skin color?  Amount of gore?  You will also want to include several photos of yourself including a good, clear picture of the front of your face and a side profile.  Take care to make sure your expression is how you would like it to be immortalized.  Admittingly, you will feel a bit goofy, but this is important in order to accurately capture your likeness.  You can also include any pictures of zombies you like for reference.

*  You will be in contact with Phil throughout the process.  This will allow your bust or magnet to take form as you watch!  It also grants you the ability to make any changes or adjustments prior to the product being finished.

*  In 6 to 8 weeks, your zombified self will arrive at your doorstep! 

Below are some pictures of Phil's work.  We welcome any questions you may have and can be reached by emailing or


  1. Phil is one amazing artist. It still freaks me out in a good way at out realistic his sculptures actually are ;p

  2. I just ordered one of the busts for my fiance for Christmas and I'm stoked about it. I was so happy to find that one special gift that is gonna blow him away. Your work looks amazing and I can't wait to see it finished.
