    Please note that those are two-ups of the six inch figures. The actual figures will only be half that size. We don't really have any great pics of the actual 12 inchers yet. Just a couple on TNI that are only from the side which are not very flattering.

    Awesome! Thanks for the link to the gallery. :techman: Too bad the Peter likeness sucks. And no Winston. :(

    Anyway, we are getting more than just action figures. We are also getting Ghostbusters Minimates!

    If you buy a 12" Ghostbusters doll ... isn't it kind of disappointing when you toy is bigger than your you-know-what?

    Are you sure you're not referring to the Minimates? ;)

    Speaking of the Minimates, here are a bunch of pictures of them from ToyFair: Gallery I love the Terror Dog Minimate. :lol:

    And while not a toy, here is an image of a replica Ecto-1 license plate, by Diamond Select: image

    The Spengler one looks really good.

    I like the idea of Ghostbusters comics, but they haven't been great.

    I wonder if there'd be a market for media tie-in books. Some of the Hellboy ones have done okay, but they're more straightforward horror than horror/comedy.

    I'd love to see a Ghostbusters novel written by someone like Christopher Moore, but that's a pipe dream, right there. ;)

    ^ There was a Ghostbuster's novel that came out a few years ago that was a sequel to Ghostbuster's II and featured Peter running for Mayor of New York. I forget what it was called and I never got a chance to read it.
