Undead Teds

Time for something just a little different, although different doesn’t necessarily mean bad!  In this case different definitely means cool!

Having been a fan of Undead Teds for quite a while I recently bit the bullet and purchased one.

Why ‘bit the bullet’ you may ask?  That’s easy, these guys are pretty expensive.  By the time you pay for postage and the bear you won’t have much change out of £90 GBP, you may even surpass that mark, the custom bears will put you over £125.

So yeah that definitely is a lot of money for a teddy bear, ‘horrifically cute’ or not, but here’s the thing, when your Undead Ted arrives you will understand the price tag.  These guys are supremely well made.  Taking the bear itself in account, you can tell before (s)he got infected with whatever zombie virus / fungus got them, s(he) was a quality, plush well put together teddy bear.  These guys aren’t some cheap bear, bought on mass, cheaply customised a little and sold for a vast profit.  They have started their zombified lives as a quality item and the quality continues through, leaving you with a zombie teddy bear that is exceptionally well put together.

There are alternatives out there, have a look at them, it does become clear quickly that if you are looking for quality this is the bear you need.

Take then the customisation – the blood is horrendous, and blood being horrendous is good!  It looks like blood, it has been applied so it looks like the ‘injuries’ the bear has have actually occurred, the blood is coming from all the right places, running and dripping where you would expect, clotting as it should and matting the bear’s fur as it would.  It’s pretty gross to be honest, but it’s meant to be.  Considering the other injuries the bear may have (as they vary with each hand made bear) they too are graphic!  My bear for example is a ‘Tongue Dangler,’ his bottom jaw has been ripped off, no doubt by some other psychotic  teddy bear, as a result his tongue is hanging out of his jaw…

As you can see, its a pretty horrific injury, but look a little closer, look at the tongue, the detail and look are of flesh, although in reality it is a hard plastic tongue it has a proper look of moist meat.

iPhone 5 / 5s Bear Grylls Action Case UnBoxing

I have always been a fan of the rugged style cases for my phone.  The offer great drop protection and keep the phones in immaculate condition when being used in everyday life.

Whilst out shopping I noticed a ‘Bear Grylls Action Case’ with a nice yellow reduced sticker in a local supermarket.  Reduced is always good and also it was bright orange.  Thats a good way to sell me something – make it available in funky colours.  The case was also available in a range of Camouflage colour options (wood land, DPM, and urban – there may be even more, as well as grey and plain black).

The cases are identified by a large BG logo on the bottom third which to be fair I am not convinced on.  The rest of the case definitely gets my vote on aesthetics, however the big logo is just a little too garish for me.  (Even though it bright orange.)  I mean c’mon does anyone actually want to walk about advertising Bear Grylls?
