Kickstarter Project: Silent Night of the Living Dead!

The Zombies are coming to Bethlehem this Christmas !
Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro' the house, not a creature was stirring, EXCEPT FOR THAT MASSIVE ZOMBIE HORDE BURSTING THROUGH MY WALLS!!!?
Do you love zombies? And do you love Christmas?? Then you're going to love 'Silent Night of the Living Dead,' the brand new zombified nativity set brought to you by those lovely, creative people at OddCo Ltd.
Borne from a late night braaainstorm over cold pizza, energy drinks and bad 80's horror movies, the creepy dudes at OddCo decided they would like to redesign the traditional Christmas Nativity and transform it into a modern horror piece for a creature loving, Zombie Nation.

Delicately sculpted and hand painted by Satan's little helpers, the Nativity consists of 9 resin figurines that stand at around 10cm tall each and come safely packaged in a cardboard box for a safe and speedy delivery.
Let's take a closer look at some of the individual pieces - 
We 3 Kings of Orient Arrrrrrrgh!?

These 3 Kings aren't following the brightest star in the sky, they are following an insatiable appetite for brains and human flesh. Unfortunately they haven't brought anything of any value either. No gold or myrrh, just body parts and gore.
While Shepherds eat their flock by night
What would any Nativity be without it's shepherd and cute little animals? Our Nativity is no different and comes with it's very own shepherd boy, lambs and a cute little zombie donkey.
Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus
Like any protective parents (even though Joseph isn't technically Jesus' dad,) Mary and Joseph will defend their child from the zombie horde at all costs! Luckily they've managed to get their hands on a crossbow and samurai sword; everyone's favourite zombie slaying weapons of choice.
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!?? Join in the fun and order the most entertaining and controversial Christmas ornament anyone has ever seen. Help us to realize our dream of making the 'Silent Night of the Living Dead' Nativity and become a part of the creation of a major talking point for any Christmas display...

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges for this project, is to manufacture and deliver the Nativity sets in time for Christmas. In order to make sure we deliver on time, we have built a heavily structured schedule, all samples are tested and approved and our manufacturers are poised to begin production as soon as we give them the green light.
Another challenge may be the controversial nature of the product. Some folks may see the zombie Nativity as sacrilegious. However, we hope most will see it for the lighthearted nod to popular culture that it is intended to be.
