The Ghostbusters Toy Thread

Back in 2009, I wrote a review on MWC of the first Egon & Slimer two pack, it was only days after their release, please check it out here and talk about it and the time it was released and so forth. I hope you guys like it and I will appreciate the conversation:)

My thoughts exactly! :)


OK, ask and you shall receive, LOL. OK, I just took some pics and I hope this helps you guys and everybody else! I for one think it is cool. The scale between the GBC & SoH is good if you make up your own story. SoH vs. RGB scale really isn't that acceptable. See what you think!

The Ghostbusters (and Slimer) vs. The Spirit of Hordak!

Please post and let Me know what you think about this :)

I still love my Mattel GB figures. only ones I'm missing are the 3 exclusives - Slimed Egon, Marshmallow Ray,and The Rookie.

still sad to me that they didn't finish it out properly. at least give us Gozer and the Terror Dogs!!

I know, it was really pathetic :roll: The figures were great indeed. If I were you and you would only get 1 exclusive, make the choice of The Rookie cuz he is so different from the rest!

Awesome thread and pics. I still have my vintage GBs. My faves was wave 2 that had Tombstone Tackle, Granny Gross and Terrortrash. The wave with Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and the Quasimodo Man was a close second tho!!!

I like the Mattel line too and wish they would've made more...I also really like the head/neck sculpt as one fairly well moveable piece; kinda wish Mattel would've done that with DCUC head and necks, makes the figs that much better looking as an asthetic.
