Lots of cool stuff in stores this week from Diamond Select Toys, including the last series of the Ghostbusters figures. Maybe.
Anybody see a ghost?
As far as I know, this is it for DST’s Ghostbusters Select line of action figures. Each figure was packed in with a piece of the original film’s rooftop battle scene. Now all of this are out and ready to be added to your collection. I didn’t see any more of them on hand at Toy Fair this past February, so I’m assuming that’s it.
Not that it has to be of course. Ghostbusters is a property that has pretty phenomenal expandability, and there are plenty more characters and ghosts that could be made. So we might not be seeing the last of the boys in gray. For now though, this is the fifth and final wave.
So if you’ve been buying them to now, you’re going to want the Terror Dog, cab driving zombie, and library ghost. Not that those figures are all that’s out this week. There’s a ton more from a load of properties.
