Toys: Tarman, Bub, & Dr. Tongue action figures from Amoktime
Amoktime is a great resource for all things geek-related and they’ve just made available for pre-order action figures of three of the world’s most famous movie zombies.
First up, is my personal favorite, Tarman star of the film from which we take our name, Return of the Living Dead (pictured to the right, duh). Isn’t that just a work of art? Wouldn’t you love to have that sitting on your mantle for when you have the grandkids over one day? This is family heirloom stuff here, y’all. And, like all good zombie toys should, it has an articulated jaw for maximum brain-biting action. And it can be yours for a mere $17.99.
Check out the other two after the jump.
Here’s another, full shot of Tarman:
Also available are two of Romero’s more famous zombies, ironically from the least popular (but possibly best) of his original zombie trilogy, Day of the Dead.
First up, Bub:
Bub, who may be the best — definitely the most sympathetic — character ever written by Uncle Georgie, is available as a super-deluxe 12″ figure. He’s a little pricier at $59.99 but sometimes you’ve gotta pay for quality.
And last but not least is a zombie who never gets the recognition that he deserves, but is memorable to anyone who’s ever seen Day. He is Dr. Tongue and he’s probably the best creation to ever come from the mind (and hands) of Tom Savini. He doesn’t get a whole lot of screen time during the movie, but he does have the distinction of being on screen when the film’s title card comes up.
