Having had success with their officially licensed “Zombo” action figure earlier in the year, the guys behind Unbox Industries have once again called upon the talents of Retroband, this time for the release of all-new soft vinyl creation, Meats! A loving tribute to both classic zombie and body horror flicks, the decaying, deformed creep appears to stand at a round 12″ tall, featuring articulation in the arms, legs and neck as well as coming with both cleaver and meat hook accessories. Revealed at Mondo Con over the weekend in an unpainted grey vinyl, we’re told to expect the first release as soon as DCon next month… Look out for more news as soon as we hear anything!

Teased here as a finished wax proto earlier in the month, Retroband‘s “Slimy Sean” mini figure has finally been revealed in full! The second instalment in the artist’s GPK-inspired “Retroband Kids” series, the 2″ figure follows a similar cult-horror theme as the first release, Toxic Timmy, this time around parodying Return of the Living Dead’s infamous Tarman to hilarious effect. Hand cast and painted by the artist, Sean comes packed on a GPK-style blistered trading card, complete with art from Retroband on the front, plus a 4 panel backstory from Worthy Enemies on the back. Due to touch down at the Retroband/Worthy Enemies Mondo Con booth (#T12) this weekend, full release details as still to be confirmed, although judging by the first release these are likely to be limited to 50, priced at $45 each…
