I have always bein very amazed that no toy company back in 1984 made figures of the Ghostbuster based on the film.Kenner waited until the Real Ghostbusters to come out with an action figure line.The first batch of figures were great then the line took a nose dive in my mind with the frieght feature mess.This look pretty neat but I agree with Wheeljack,if they are offereing the 6 inch figures 20 bucks a pop??Forget it.

yeah, 20 bucks...but then again, there are only 4 Ghostbusters and they will be released sporadically

This is STUPID!!! although the Figures look awsome!!! Mattel wants us collectors to jump through their FIRE HOOPS. sure, you're willing to wait for each of these figures and dolls to come to the "MATTY" website. the incredible price of $20.00 per figure estimate each you can get one before they SELL OUT!!! but if you luck out you can always go to EBAY or some OVERPRICED Comic Shop or even better paying the wazoo at some CONVENTION... let's face it my fellow COLLECTORS, if Mattel is so proud of making GHOSTBUSTERS figures why are they being sold only on their website overpriced and NOT in any retail stores.

 

Think about it!!!

Its all bout money...

They dont wanna risk mass marketing these figures, and then have them fail.

Dont worry, im letdown aswell...but we just have to bite the bullet, close our eyes and jump through the fire hoop.

I'm seriously annoyed by Mattel over this. I want the GB figures. Its about time we had some decent movie toys. NECA had licensing problems to produce the 4 GBs, but now Mattel have the license, we have to go to MattyCollector.com and fork over a small fortune to get them all.

 

I for one want them in stores. I want to be able to get these easily as possible. Not have to put down a down payment on a house just to get em (*exaggeration*)

According to Mattel Murray is on board, and you know Hudson - he's up for anything.

 

One interesting thing I heard is that Murray will not do Ghostbusters 3 unless Ernie Hudson gets a role equal to the other 3 Busters.

 

But if they're $20 a pop, and we get 4 Busters and 4 ghosts then that's only $80 (not counting shipping). If that were in a boxed set it'd cost over $100. Not a bad deal if you ask me.
