George A. Romero Becomes an Action Figure Thanks to Retroband

Thanks to a blog over at Mondo via XombieDirge, we learned that limited edition, first come first serve action figures of George A. Romero will be available to lucky ticket holders at the Alamo Drafthouse/Texas Frightmare screening of 1978s "Dawn of the Dead." Not only will the film's cast be in attendance but Romero will as well. Click here for details on tonight's screening.

More details from the blog over at Mondo, "We’re gearing up to head to Dallas for Texas Frightmare Weekend, but before we get to the actual con, we are making a stop in Richardson at the Alamo Drafthouse / Texas Frightmare screening of DAWN OF THE DEAD to release the very first OFFICIAL figure of GEORGE ROMERO with our friends at Retroband!"

Retroband consists of two talented dudes named Gabriel Hernandez and Aaron Moreno who according to the blog, are pretty kick ass in making "limited edition, hand sculpted, hand cast and hand painted figures. They design their own card art and package the figures in San Antonio, TX."
