COCKEYSVILLE, MD -- A&A Global Industries has unveiled new lines of bulk vending and flat merchandise, in keeping with the earlier twilights and chillier temperatures of late fall. Making its debut exclusively for 2" capsule machines is Zombie Planet, a collection designed by Hoppin' Hydros to address the contemporary enthusiasm for the undead. There are nine collectible figurines in all, including Brain-Dead Britney, Long Gone John, Decay Ray and Rigamortis Rick, each distinctive and ghoulishly detailed. The Zombie Planet figurines also are available mixed with black and white "rub grunge" design product. They're backed by a two-sided blister display showing the entire collection.
Also in keeping with the current gothic sensibility are three temporary tattoo lines for flat merchandise vending. Grim N' Girly includes 12 pretty pink skull tattoos designed by Lethal Threat; they appeal primarily to teenaged girls. Barrio Life is a series of 12 black-and-white designs by ODM, representing the urban lifestyle and carrying English and Spanish mottos. Slash is an assortment of wild animal designs (real and mythical), ranging from tigers and jaguars to dragons. All three are supported by two-sided displays to increase point-of-sale merchandising options.
