As mentioned in today's review of SLUG Zombies Series 4, Jakks had plans for at least two more series that never came to be. Here, take a look, and try not to have your heart broken:
The future series would have kept alive the trend of mixing pop-culture homages with original designs. For instance:
71: Axl Rose/Steven Tyler
72: Dirty Harry
76: Shaun White
77: Ben Franklin
78: Happy Gilmore
86: Charles Bronson
96: Amelia Earhart
97: Harry Potter
99: Donald Trump
100: The Dude
Recognize any others?
The truly devastating thing? Series 5 and 6 were underway! Series 6 was still being sculpted, but Series 5 had been fully produced and packaged!
Those exist somewhere in the world, locked away in a warehouse like the Ark of the Covenant.
In case you're wondering, here's what Series 6 would have comprised (including two new Hunters not seen on the checklist poster):
And as an amazing final bonus, here are the plans for Series 7!
Napoleon, Einstein, Queen Elizabeth, plus a variant Amelia Scareheart? And Robocop as a Hunter?! Crikey, did we ever miss out on some fun stuff!
69: TMNT's Casey Jones
84: might be Animal Mother from the movie Full Metal Jacket
87: might be female surfer Bethany Hamilton based on the shark bite on the surfboard (and if it is, wow, the response on the Internet would have been something, I bet)
91: looks like he's meant to be Akebono (the first American yokozuna), based on the name
Only ever saw a handful of these figures show up -- and it was at a local dollar store-type place if I remember correctly. Wish I'd bought some now!
Also, it's a terrible shame that GitD Cleopatra never got made 🙁
096 is a parody of Amelia Earhart, the first female pilot in History.
It appears Babydoll from Sucker Punch would have been a Hunter too.
