The Dead Island series gets mixed reactions from its marketing plans. It practically wins Oscars for its cinematic trailers, but then is reprimanded for its dismembered-bikini-clad-zombie-victim collector's edition statuettes.

Okay then, says Dead Island 2 publisher, Deep Silver. You pick, then.

Deep Silver put up a survey featuring nearly 30 different options of what could go into the Dead Island 2 collector's edition. On a scale of 1 (Do Not Want) to 5 (I Need This!), you could be instrumental in whether Twitter whips itself into a furor over things like a zombie arm back scratcher, a zombie flag of California, or..."a real zombie"?

Do Not Want.

Or maybe you do. I mean, the real zombie choice comes with a legal disclaimer stating: "real zombie subject to country availability." So, let your gurgly, zombie-inflected voice be heard and vote.

Dead Island 2 comes to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Spring 2015.
