Diamond Select’s classic Ghostbusters line is expanded yet again, and Ant Man makes a big/small splash in stores this week.
Who you gonna call?
Wave 3 of DST’s Ghostbusters Select action figures. Who else did you think I was talking about? Ant-Man maybe? Well, if you’ve got a super-villain skulking about, maybe he’d be a good choice. For spooks, specters, and ghosts though, the boys in gray are your best bet.
This week, DST’s excellent line dedicated to the original Ghostbusters movies expanded with a new version of Ray Stantz, Quittin’ Time Ray. He’s not alone though, because a pair of long-awaited figures joined him on the shelves in Janine and Slimer.
Yep, not content to make him/it as a pack-in or sidekick character, DST has gone all-out and produced a full-on Slimer figure. And quite frankly, he’s pretty damn awesome. Loaded up with a pair of alt faces, so you can change up his looks as you see fit. He’s also got a stand that’ll pop onto the completed rooftop diorama, so he can free-float in your display.
Janine is no slouch either, with a phone (natch’), take out containers, and -of course- that famous button to ring the firehouse’s alarm. We got one, and all that. Oh yeah, and unlike Slimer, she’s got a piece of the rooftop packed in as well.
As for that Avenger I mentioned, Ant Man is looming large as a PVC figure this week. The 9″ tall figure is a part of the new Gallery line from the company. He’ll fit right in with the Femme Fatales series as well, and is sculpted with his thumb on his suit’s shrinking-trigger. Making him even cooler? There’s a little crouched version of Ant Man on the base, so this is really a sculpt of him in action, shrinking down.
All of the above should be in stores as of right now, so go get ’em.
Official descriptions? Yep, we’ve got those too
