Despite their cadaverous pallor, zombies are hotter then ever. Marvel zombified their heroes and villains with the smash hit Marvel Zombies series, and now Star Wars gets the undead treatment thanks to sculptor Michael Barrera’s awesome work that can be seen at his website, aipresents.com.
The latest issue of Toyfare (Dec 2007, #124) — now on newsstands — has Barrera’s step-by-step instructions on how to turn a slave Leia into a zombie as part of their Customizing 101 column.
