Zombie Men Only?

The only real disintegrating disco diva amongst the Zombie Men? 

These disco Zombies came from the same online party bag source as the More Fun for Less Fun Express Cowboys and Indians.

As you can see from the More Fun For Less packaging, these are “Zombie Men” only.

Where are the Zombie Women?

I think these smaller figures (45mm to eye line, 50mm to top of head) are probably sold as cake decorations or party bag favours for Halloween.

Few of these figures look that dead or resurrected. Most of them look like they have staggered on to the disco set of Saturday Night Fever – or possibly Thriller.

If you want some slack jawed, staggering 19th century to modern scruffy civilian men for your gaming table or model railroad, these are probably for you.

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...
