    Finally! I've been eagerly awaiting figures of the movie GBs since NECA announced they got the license (which they apparently no longer have). It's also cool to hear that they will be making RGB toys too. :techman:

    Don't you just love anniversaries? :D

    Why didn't they come out with this stuff back when I bought action figures? :(

    Oh man, I think I'm gonna need those 6" figures. The Horsemen make incredible looking figures so I trust they'll look great. Peter with Slimer would SO get my money in a heartbeat.

    I had the action figures based on the cartoon series back in the 80s. I had Ecto-1 and the firehouse, too.

    Gotta love childhood nostalgia!

    Did anyone read the recent IDW Ghostbusters miniseries? It was ok...mediocre at best.

    Mattel? Um....I'll wait for pics. Then again, the article mentions licensing partners. Maybe, just maybe Hot Toys will be able to pick up the license too, like they did with Dark Knight. Oh my god, Hot Toys Ghostbusters would be the death of my wallet.

    PLEASE correct me if I am wrong, but I thought I read a TOYFARE article somewhere that said the reason there where never any toys was because Bill Murry refuesed to give the toy companies licence approvel for his likeness? They said Murry was a bit FREAKED out about the idea that someone would be PLAYING with him or something. I gue$$ he CHANGED hi$ mind.;)

    Or maybe someone explained NRFB to him.

    Murray : So they buy these toys...so they can NEVER play with them? Didn't Danny do this skit back on SNL?

    Awesome I loved the volkswagen monster toy.

    Me and my cousin in Queens would play hide and seek with the proton packs at night.

    Everything retro is getting redone. TMNT, Transformers, GI JOE and He Man

    That's a pretty good likeness. I hope they'll do smaller ones; I could kind of justify those.

    They look pretty good, hopefully they'll be somewhat affordable, Ghostbusters has been one of my favorite movies since I was a little kid.

    Is Winston getting shafted AGAIN?! He better damn-well be in this line of figures.

    (Which I will quickly buy 2 sets of and keep one in the OP and stored away and the other on display.)

    Hey, in the pictures why does Venkman have on the Ecto Goggles when it was Ray Stanz who wore them in the movie?

    Because they don't want to show off a half arsed Bill Murray face.

    Eh Winston deserves the shaft. Never really thought he was anything special. Always screamed 'Token Black guy'. Although I did love his "Shit that will turn you WHITE" line.

    "Yay mommy It's Winston Zeddymore...Zeddermore...Zeddmore...uhm... THE BLACK GUY! YAY!"

    He'll be part of series two if some of the series one figures (like Peck, the Mayor, the scared librarian, the hotel manager, and the two students in Venkman's test study) sell well. :p
