Just a short review today as I'm in the middle of playing my "Assault on Precinct 13" scenario for my ATZ campaign. When I ordered the ZS Wedding Hunters (shown last time) I also ordered a few other figures from them at the same time. Here, I present the ZS Science! figures. For some strange reason ZS has added an exclamation mark after their name on their webstore. Go figure!
With his hair looking like someone has stuck his finger in an electrical socket, the scientist at the far left of my two photos reminds me of boxing promoter, Don King! Alternatively, if painted as a Caucasian, he could pass for Albert Einstein. He's quite a nice figure with one hand stuffed in his lab coat and the other holding a clipboard, which should have been bigger, in my opinion.
The scientist next to him reminds me of Dr. Beaker from Gerry Anderson's Supercar TV series. I'm really showing my age by mentioning that, as I can remember watching Supercar as a very small child in the early 1960's. He also has one hand stuffed in his lab coat and the other hand holds a computer printout. Note the combover on his balding hair!
Finally, at the far right of the photos is a young scientist holding, what I can only assume is some kind of experimental weapon. Your guess is as good as mine regarding what it could be. Whilst two of the scientists are wearing glasses, he is wearing goggles. I have to admit that out of the four he is the weakest sculpt. His anatomy is far too cartoony and just doesn't look realistic.
These are not the best sculpted figures I've seen, but nor are they the worst. They are passable and if you are looking for scientist types, they fill a niche as there aren't that many available. Anyone interested in researching a cure for the zombie disease or wanting to find out how it started could surely find a use for a bunch of scientists. And, of course, for pulp gamers, these are a staple of the genre. This pack of four figures retails for $12.00 from Zombiesmith's webstore.
