With loads of hyped collectors and fans blogging and tweeting about the range, plus Diamond Comics taking on the range in the US, we think that Dawn of the Ted has opened the door for a whole new generation of bad taste bear lovers.
All our fans of blood, guts and gore, just can’t get enough of the new Dawn of the Ted, therefore when we first sat down to talk about launches for 2011, Dawn of the Ted was top of our list.
Pete had already drawn a stack of great zombie images that we still wanted to use, but how could we improve on what we’ve already achieved and take it to the next level?
One of the most exciting new ideas that we came up with when we launched the first set of Dawn of the Ted was to separate the fans into zombies and zombie killers… Why not the range too?
Well the zombie killers are going to be very happy because our first launch in 2011 will be a series of Zombie Killer bears!
Check out ‘Morty’ the zombie killer who kicks ass for the Lord!
This bear was sculpted by Wayne Taylor and model maker Gavin Wilson added the accessories such as the cup and cross.
Original art obviously comes from Mr Underhill.
Earlier on this year, we explained that there would be an end to the bi-monthly twin-set programme.
Instead of twin sets we will be introducing a brand new bi-monthly scheme called – DEAD TED SOCIETY
Members of the Dead Ted Society will be buying into a collection of amazing new Dawn of the Ted Zombie and Zombie Killer figurines which we will also launch as a direct debit scheme every other month in 2011.
Starting from Jan 2011, Dead Ted subscribers now have the option of being sent a brand new special edition DOTT figurine every other month for just £7.50 a month.
The normal retail for zombie killers will be £16.99 or above depending on the model, Club Members still receive their 10% discount on each piece and Dead Ted subscribers will only pay £15 per figurine no matter what.
We aren’t going to announce quantities at this stage, but let’s just say that some will be more limited than others. Watch this space…
If you are already a twin set subscriber, you will be automatically upgraded to a Dead Ted Society member and your payments will automatically be reduced to just £7.50per month!

Further to our exclusive revealing earlier on this year, just wanted to let you know some updated info about the horrorscopes and show you some new images of Pisces (Feb) and Aries (March) releases...
For those who don't already know about Horrorscopes... check out the previous blog.
As of January 2011 OddCo and Peter Underhill are delighted to introduce Horrorscopes, a brand new monthly BTB programme to replace Bear of the Month.
Each monthly release for 2011 will relate to the star sign for that month, starting with Aquarius in January and moving into Pisces for February and so on…
Each figurine comes in a beautifully designed new box with a star sign description on the side.
If you are a monthly subscriber to this scheme you will receive all kinds of benefits over and above the normal purchase.
If you are already signed up to the Bear of the Month scheme, then this will just continue into 2011 as Horrorscope subscription with no hassle at all. If you are not a subscriber, then watch this space for more info coming very soon...
Now, check out some exclusive new images of Pisces and Aries, not yet seen outside the Bad Taste Bears Hinkley Preview!
We hope you like these great new releases as much as we do? Watch this space for more info...

There will be some excitement about this range as Pete Underhill and the team have been asked about it continually for as long back as we can remember?!
In 2011, your Bear of the Month will now become ‘Horrorscopes.’ That’s horror scopes.
Every month from January onwards will relate to the relevant star sign for that period of time!
Peter first sketched some star sign bears almost 10 years ago and we actually launched a Taurus figurine in the shape of scratch and sniff. I guess the whole range just didn’t really have a place amongst other things that we were doing at the time and therefore it was never launched in its entirety.
We did actually return to these original designs, when we first talked about bringing back the range for 2011, but Pete decided that he would like to have another crack at the star signs under the guise ‘horror-scopes’ in an effort to update them and make them a bit more edgy.
Check out Aquarius, the first launch for 2011!! Not only is it a great funny gift for anyone who has Aquarius as their star sign, it’s also a terrific looking addition to any range.We think Pete has got the balance just right.
As you can see, we have incorporated the clear resin method that we have used for your Christmas bear 2010.
Here is a picture of the new style packaging that your Horrorscopes will come in. As you can see, each box comes with a star sign description on the side.
So again, this should be a great little gift to give to your mates for their first ever BTB.
Your BOTM debit will now continue, hassle free, as a Horrorscopes debit and as a Horrorscopes subscriber you will receive all kinds of benefits and incentives outside of a straight purchase.
Your first incentive will be a massive 50% discount price on Aquarius, your first Horrorscopes bear. The normal RRP for Aquarius will be £30.00, members price £27.00 and subscribers price just £15.00.
Every month we will give Horrorscopes subscribers a discount from the normal RRP. All Horrorscopes will retail for between £16.99 and £30.00 and as subscribers you will only ever be charged £15 a month.
This new scheme will allow us to expand the limitations of older figurines and incorporate more dynamic ideas, new materials and fantastic finishing to your new figurines. We often feel restrained by the £10.99 price point so this will be a welcome change for Pete to be able to get more creative.
