Bub, the first figure from the "Day of the Dead", set to be released. Final images and VIDEO inside!
I've never understood why some people say that "Day of the Dead" was the worst of George Romero's original zombie trilogy. It was always my favorite and by a pretty good margin, too. Well, the film will soon be celebrated by a line of 8" action figures from Amok Time and the first one is almost set to be released. Bub, the popular, iconic zombie from the film, will be the first, and final product images are now available.
Bub will be a deluxe figure and include a display base, extra arm, gun, razor, headphones, tape deck and "reward bucket". It looks like the only thing missing is a Stephen King novel. I don't know if that's just an oversight or if it's for legal reasons, but I'm guessing the latter.
Bub is set to be released in late October/early November and will retail for $14.99. The second figure in the line will be the "Dr. Tongue" zombie and that will follow in 2009. Here's a shot of the guys from Amok Time with "Day of the Dead" FX legends Tom Savini and Greg Nicotero, showing off both figures.
