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!
