The lights are on
Just when you thought your wallet was safe, Valve announces that it's unleashing a horde of plushies based on the original Left 4 Dead special infected. The first one to be revealed is the plump and putrid Boomer. Bulbous, infected lesions and morbid obesity has never been so adorable.
Boomer is the first in line of the five special infected plushies, leading the charge to vomit fanservice all over your face. If his cute appearance looks familiar, it's because he has the same designer (Alexandria Neonakis) as the noxiously heart-warming L4D Valentine's Day cards. He's no tiny beanie baby, either, measuring in at 13 inches in length and height. What's more, he can gargle out ten Boomer sound effects straight from the game. Perfect for grossing out the nearest youngster!
He can be yours for $49.99 (batteries not included). I'll be holding out for the Hunter, thank you.

Not too interested
I won't buy any, but that's kinda cool.
50 bucks, no thank you
wow $50.00 that's like the cost of Left 4 Dead. What a deal
It's just the right size for my cat to mount too. No thanks. I have enough trouble keeping him from manning up on the throw pillows, last thing I need is Boomer noises going off while he's... going off.
It looks interesting but is way overpriced.
you know what this will steal? my wallet. jesus, 50 dollars for a plushie?! i get it makes noises but DAYUM!
ok, ok, i actually want the witch and smoker ones. i just need some more munnyz.
Someone tossed this up on Deals.woot last night but.. at $50 now sure I'll buy in. My lil sis is a huge L4D fanatic.. Maybe if this was the Spitter, I'd cave. That's the one character she had the most fun being (and was a huge camper with the Spitter!)
Pass on [for now.]
Judging by the shadows, I believe that the next ones are the spitter, hunter, smoker(?), and tank.
I'm only getting the boomer if he explodes into a mist of blood and puke upon pushing his zit belly.
$50? Not for me. $20? Maybe.
Hell, I can't even play Left 4 Dead (*cries*) so why would I want a plushie?
It's cool but I wouldn't shell out 50 for it.
I like the design. While this is a cool idea, it has nothing on the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal.
Isn't he cute?
Wow looks kinda weird but cool in the same way
Probably not going to get the plush but the cards are cool.
thats hilarious but look there are gonna be 5 of these things... and at 50 bucks a pop that's waay over priced.
no thanks valve
Just saying, they are 49.99, not 50.00. lol
