Time for a look at the most recent batch of Hasbro’s Kenner Classics The Real Ghostbusters figures! These are reissues of the originals, in retro inspired boxes and all. The first batch featured the 4 primary Ghostbusters, Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Now we get the epic Ecto-1 and two ghosts – Fearsome Flush and Bug-Eye Ghost.
All of these retain their original gimmicks for maximum nostalgia. The seat inside Ecto-1 can pop on the top or hang out the back for on the fly ghost catching. The retractable claw can extend out and pull back in when the wheels move forward. Doors open for the crew to sit inside. On the ghost front, Bug-Eye’s giant eyeball fires out when you squeeze him, attached with a string. Mr. Flush has rolling action, where he “transforms” on a roll – eyes popping out of the tank and a tongue / teeth coming from the lid. I think I’ve run into this guy a couple times over the years actually…
All in all they are well done pieces that hit home for those that collected the original line. These are dropping soon at Walmart in the US, and are available via UK Hasbro Pulse for our international friends.
We’ve shot some quick pics showing them off, check them out after the break. All of these come courtesy of Hasbro, thanks to them for sending these through!
