This Halloween.. Our favorite childhood toyline comes alive by turning undead with Mikie Graham's Zombie Art Project.
What were you doing before the rise of the toylines and action figures franchises as a result of the meteoric rise of the Satuday Morning Cartoon era in the 80s? Most probably, you will be playing with LEGO or rather its closest competitor, Playmobil. With its vast selection of adventurous themed playsets and relatively more realistic presentation, we have always find the German-based toyline more interesting than its arguably more iconic competitor.
Now imagine our joy of learning about Mikie Graham's Mikie Graham's Zombie Art Project.
Well-known for his customized work on toys, Graham took on a timely mission to work on a series of Playmobil figues customized to a full-blown zombie apocalypse. Forget about McFarlane Toys' The Walking Dead toyline. Witness some truly grisly customization in this toyline coined as "Zombie Art Project". Hit the jump to check out these extremely exhilarating figures complete with some clever sardonic description from Graham. Most of the custom figures are sold out but move fast and you might just get your hands on some of the newer ones from the official store.
Oct 31st: Mort’s Fine Meats - $125.00
Mort has been providing fine cuts of meat and hand ground sausages for over 50 years now. Priding himself on using only the freshest ingredients, Mort personally inspects each cut of meat he buys, selecting only the choicest carcasses to chop up and serve to his ravenous group of customers. When visiting Mort’s Fine Meats make sure to sample his world famous “Frank-furters” made fresh daily out of Frank himself!
Oct 30th: The Traffic Cop - $55.00
This depressed traffic warden has the worst job of his precinct- picking up after everyone else. Riding the streets on his beat up police cruiser, this public servant sometimes wonders if his job is worth it…. But the bike full of edible “under the table" perks keeps him working the same beat day in and day out without too loud of a complaint. It’s a dirty job but someone has to do it!
Oct 29th: Grandpa Guts and Pinky - $45.00
GG: Grandpa seems to have taken a spill…. A VERY nasty spill! But it hasn’t gotten this elderly gent down…. In fact he’s sure that he has a vest that will hide his minor flesh wound from his easily frightened grandchildren. “Come here and sit on Grandpa’s lap!”
P: Pinky’s favorite color is pink. Pink clothes, pink hair, pink shoes… everything HAS to be pink! Imagine how excited this adorable little cupcake was when she found a sticky pink toy nestled deep within herself. Now she will never be bored again!
Oct 28th: Cut up Caroline and Legless Leslie - $35.
CC: Stumbling belly first into the blade of an aggressive survivor, Caroline lost more than the fingers off her right hand… she lost her dinner for the night.
LL: Life has never been easy for little Leslie, crippled by polio at a young age, she has always needed the help of her metal brace to get around. After losing her gimp leg to a very hungry pack of dogs, Leslie has been freed from her dead appendage and now is moving at a much faster pace with the help of her well-practiced crutch.
Oct 27th: The Giving Mother and Peckish Penny - $40.00
GM: Mary Jane would do anything for her only child so when errands are taking too long and her little Penny starts getting cranky it’s only natural that this uber-mom is willing let her only daughter nibble away at her own flesh until she calms down.
PP: Little Penny loves her mommy; she loves her fingers and her muscle and her marrow and she especially loves her tasty, wet innards! It’s a rare occasion that mommy gives Penny such a special treat. Maybe if she cries extra loud Mom will cave in and give her what she craves!
Oct 26th: Pete of the Dead - $45.00
An ex swat team member, Pete escaped the city in a helicopter with the help of his good friend “flyboy.” The two of them, along with a rag tag group of survivors have found a massive Zombie infested mall and have decided to set down…. What better place to call home? If only they can clear out the place without anyone getting bitten.
Oct 25th: Terrible Timmy and the Basketball Coach -$35.00
TT: Timmy was never good at spots, to be honest Timmy was never very good at anything, and overbearing authority figures yelling orders at him never seemed to help matters. Only now, after death has Timmy found what he’s truly good at…. KILLING!!!
BC: This bully of a basketball coach pushed Timmy a little too far one day. Yelling insults at the boy during Basketball practice proved to be a fatal error for this one time “big man.” Leaping at his coach the pint sized Timmy sent the rest of his team fleeing in terror as he set about to his gruesome task.
Oct 24th: Marvin the Magnificent and his Lovely Assistant - $60.00
Marvin used to be a two bit magic man, working bar mitzvah’s and kiddie birthday parties. Only after his partner changed was Marvin actually able to perform a truly magnificent feat. Now that his partner can feel no pain Marvin has been able to perform illusions that would make even the most professional of tricksters gawk in disbelief.
When life and limb are no longer an issue, it’s amazing what a two bit magician can achieve.
Oct 23rd: Templar of the Blind Dead - SOLD
Pulled directly from Italian “Blind Dead” series of films, this ancient Templar Knight has seen better days. Shambling through desolate ruins and crypts this old pile of bones is only kept alive through his ghoulish feedings….. Looks like dinner is served!
Oct 22nd: The Dog Walker and Oscar - $35.00
DW: This eager entrepreneur isn’t going to let something like the zombie apocalypse get in the way of her dog walking duties. After all the Jones family seem to have inexplicably left town and someone has to walk poor little Oscar.
O: Oscar’s family left town in a hurry one morning and haven’t been back since. Alone and afraid Oscar is overjoyed to see the friendly face of his yellow clad dog walker. Maybe if he’s a good boy, she will take care of him from now on??
Oct. 21st: Cop Survivor - $45.00
When things started getting bad at Police H.Q. this nameless rookie cop ducked into the supply’s closet to wait out the madness. Hours have past and it’s become apparent that things aren’t getting any better…. If anything they are getting much worse. Mustering every ounce of courage, this no name lawman grabs whatever riot gear he can find laying around and arms himself with his trusty nightstick. It is time to leave the safety of his closet and make a name for himself in this new dead infested world. He is a piece officer after all!
Oct 20th: Romero and Victim Vera - $40.00
R: Not the main man himself (notice the lack of white hair and glasses) but most defiantly George Romero’s biggest fan. G here has seen ever horror flick his film idol has ever produced. From Night, to Dawn, to Day, this movie obsessed horror fan has seen so many twisted acts of violence, that his own face has started to melt away, revealing the true horror within.
VV: Poor Vera didn’t stand a chance, attacked and eviscerated in the blink of an eye. At least this precious little one didn’t have time to feel anything before her untimely demise.
Oct 19th: First Responder and Picked Pete - $35.00
FR: Sometimes it’s not always smart to be first person on the scene. This over eager fellow bravely ran into a blazing office building, boldly tempting death itself. Unfortunately death had the upper hand and our hero fell victim to his flame filled fate.
PP: Pete was on a school field trip to his local fire department when strange things stated happening. Reeling around to find a classmate chewing on his arm Pete panicked and ran to the nearest adult for help, only to find a precisely aimed pick ax as the blunt answer to his now snarling cries.
Oct 18th: The Thriller and Sanjay - $40.00
TT: This red leather clad pop star has been in zombie limbo since the mid 80’s. Only now after his official death can it be confirmed that MJ had been eating the flesh of young children for years to keep his appearance fresh and childlike (a little trick the zombie Elizabeth Taylor taught him).
SJ: MJ’s trusty boy servant, Sanjay has seen more than a child of his age should. Perhaps that’s why he can’t stop picking at his own brain. Luckily he still has that fancy turban to hide his self-inflicted wound from the ever watchful eye of his bizarre master.
Oct 17th: the Famished Father and the Succulent Schoolboy - $35.00
FF: This man of the cloth has had an insatiable hunger ever since he lost the top of his head last week to an overzealous parishioner. This hunger hasn’t disappeared despite feasting on a majority of the choir as well as quite a few of the Nuns that he found hiding around the castle like church he calls a home.
SS: Maybe it isn’t smart to keep the famished father and this delicious looking school boy trapped together in such a small coffin. If one bad thing doesn’t happen to the poor lad, another even crueler act is bound to take place.
Oct. 16th: Phantom Spaceman and Bongo - $50.00
PS: Ground control to Major Tom… Something with this space cadet is very, VERY wrong!
Ever since coming in contact with the on board scientific research animals, Tom here hasn’t been feeling quite himself…. In fact he is so spacy lately that he hasn’t even noticed the quarter sized meteor hole that has rendered his space helmet utterly useless.
B: Coming back on a deep space probe Bongo landed safely aboard the international space station and was whisked directly into medical care. This particular experiment seems to have gone horribly wrong, and bongo has become something the scientists on board have never encountered before… a new species that could very well destroy mankind as we know it.
October 15th: Satanist - SOLD
Obsessed with death while alive this "modern pagan" is right at home in the land of the undead. The transition was so easy for this one that some wonder if he was ever truly "alive" to begin with.
October 14th: BIRDS! - $35.00
Straight out of a Hitchcock movie, Mitch here had the misfortune of wandering head first into a flock of newly infected carrion eaters, birds designed for tearing decaying flesh from rotting bone. Although already stuffed with human flesh, this ravenous raven couldn't help going back for dessert... two freshly plucked squishie eyeballs!
October 13th: Hunter Survivor - $45.00
This grizzled mountain man's life hasn't changed one bit since the dead decided to come back to life.
He still lives in seclusion, he still hunts for his dinner, and he still thinks people are a bunch of mindless zombies! The only discernible difference is the annoyance of wandering corpses invading his mountainside property. A minor inconvenience at first but now as the cities have become overrun there seem to be more and more of them showing up. Will the hunter eventually become the hunted??
October 12th: Impaled Irving and Sickly Sue - $35.00
II: Irving had the misfortune of stumbling upon a well armed survivor with a very BIG sword. This feisty snack managed to get in several clean cuts in before picnicking and lodging his weapon firmly into Irving rumbling belly where it has remained ever since... a truly fatal error.
SS: Sue's mother was worried about sending her daughter off to school when so many kids were coming down with this mystery sickness. But off she went. She bundled her daughter up tight and told her not to play with anyone else at lunchtime.... but all the motherly love in the world won't protect a little girl from a staff room full of ravenous grade school teachers!
October 11th: Granny E. and Rex - $35.00
GE: The Zombie infection sure hasn't slowed down old Granny E and why should it? Things aren't that much different now. She's still fragile, she still moves slowly, and she still needs to go to the bathroom 5 times a day... the only difference is this persistent hunger.
Rex: Granny E's loyal guard dog Rex has seen better days. Since his dry food has run out he has had to get creative. Quietly gnawing off his masters leg at the knee (she doesn't seem to notice) he should be full for days!
October 10th: Fidel and Batiste Soldier - SOLD
Its been rumored for months within conspiracy circles that Ol Fidel here has been dead for quite some time and been replaced with a look a like impostor. But it wasn't until the dead started to rise and this bearded atrocity was seen stumbling around his once beloved Cuba that any rumor could be officially confirmed.
Batiste soldier: An unlucky victim of Fidel's bloody coup. Fellow military commanders questioned his decision to "hold onto" this war trophy.... but now after the change it doesn't seem so crazy!
October 9th: The Pimp and Harriet the Half Ho - $45.
TP: This dapper gentleman knows how to make a dollar the old fashion way.... pimping out street trash to the highest bidder. Although demand has tapered off lately, this "legitimate businessman" knows how to keep his customers happy.... introducing his new line of budget hookers- half the woman HALF the price!!
HH: Harriet would never go against her daddy. He helps her with money issues, never hits her, and above all else he buys her only the finest jewelry.... case in point her fabulous new Spine Bone necklace, a new design that is setting the zombie fashion world on fire!
October 8th: The Ultimate Survivor - $50.00
Maxwell learned how to survive in the zombie wasteland quickly. Stay protected, stay armed, and above all else.... destroy their teeth and they can't bite you! Frustrated with the current social climate, Max has decided to make a difference. Donning his custom survival suit and grabbing his sturdy sledge, Max has set out to take the world back for the living.... one smashed skull at a time!
October 7th: The Bike Messenger - $45.00
Flying down the street at a million miles an hour delivering packages sounded like the perfect way to make a living... not even now after his fatal accident would this thick headed messenger even consider putting breaks on his beloved "fixie".
October 6th: Billy's Big Feast - $40.00
Since Billy got sick he has had the most intense hunger pains (maybe he has a tape worm?). Now after hunting day and night, Billy thinks he may have found something that will finally subdue his veracious appetite!
October 5th: We all scream... SOLD
Who doesn't love the ice cream man? Smile on his face, bell brightly ringing, cart full of tasty treats. This business savvy fella has tweaked his once prosperous ice cream cart to fit a new business model.... all brains all the time and business is booming!!
October 4th: Sister Slaughter and School Girl - SOLD
SS: What is the only kind of meat a priest can eat on Friday?? NUN
This sister of the faith learned the hard way that this sexist old proverb was true. She prayed for god to spare her life as the church father vigorously chewed the top off her blissfully ignorant skull.
SG: Jane's fist year at St Bleeding Hearts has been rough. Social clicks, living away from home, and lets not forget the nuns., However things seem to be getting worse. The normally bitter old staff have gotten steadily more aggressive in their discipline style which is now verging on Draconian. Catholic school can be murder.
October 3rd: The Glutton and BBQ Baby - SOLD
TG: This plump foodie hasn't let the Zombie Apocalypse get him down....quite on the contrary. He has fired up the grill, popped a cold beer, and is about to tuck into some of the juiciest baby back ribs he could find!
BBQ Baby: Life was short but sweet for this tasty little morsel. Snatched from her crib while sleeping, her captor was so fevered with hunger he didn't even bother to strip off her sleepers before throwing her on the grill. Oh well, let's call it "mesquite".
October 2nd: Armless not Harmless and Charlie - SOLD
ANH: The loss of her left arm has not made this undead mother any less aggressive.... in fact if anything its made her twice as fierce. Grabbing at anything that moves with her one good arm, this zombie's success rate is right at 50/50 but that's more then enough to survive!
C: Even before the zombie outbreak Charlie was a biter. Bullies, teachers, his parents.... if he didn't like the way people were treating him Charlie would get even with a swift CHOMP to even the odds..... things haven't changed since the transformation, yet the others are less freaked out by his natural feral nature. WATCH OUT cause Charlie will bite you!
October 1st: Doom Profit and Bitten Barbara - SOLD
DP: Corpses wander the streets, children eat their parents, and rivers run red with blood; THE END IS HERE!!! This prophet may be a bit to late to save anyone... but that won't stop him from wandering the earth spreading the word of his resurrected savior.
BB: Life as a kid can be tough especially when your fellow playmates start trying to eat you. Before Barbara could get away from her attackers, one bit her so she hid herself deep in the basement of her apartment complex... only to eventually subcome to the deadly sickness and become one of "them" herself.
