Paul Feig offers first look at new Ghostbusters action figures

01.08.2016

Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS is looking to make its mark with fans new and old this summer, and, while there is bound to be comparisons made between the new film and the 1984 original carrying the same name, there is one area where the new GHOSTBUSTERS is already ahead of its predecessor - action figures.

Action figures for GHOSTBUSTERS didn't really hit shelves until a few years later, tied to THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS animated series, although in recent years, we've seen some retro figures released to represent the original. But heading into its July release, Feig's flick will have figures on the shelves already for a new generation to get their hands on.

Yesterday, Feig took to Twitter to show off prototypes of their Mattel six-inchers, and they look pretty sweet.

Who ya gonna call to get them? Toys "R" Us... Walmart... You know, the usual...

GHOSTBUSTERS hits theaters on July 15.

Mattel is really a terrible toy manufacturer. If these are sold in stores they'll be hugely expensive, if they offer them exclusively through mattycollector.com they'll probably be just as expensive and either be a pain in the ass to buy and/or the shipping charges will be astronomical. Y'know, for those who want these. More power to you!

Yeah, nobody is going to buy this garbage.

Who the hell wants a Kate McKinnon toy? A Leslie Jones toy? People bought HAROLD RAMIS, BILL MURRAY etc... They were big at the time and not third rate SNL rejects. They actually succeeded on SNL instead of having one voice for every character (Kate) or just the token Angry Black character (Leslie)

Kudos for Mattel to bring out an all female GB cast. I also wonder who will buy these. As a collector I HATE it when female figures don't get made but at the same time how do they market these? I mean, Aside from Wiig, I have zero interest in the cast unless somehow the movie changes my mind. Young boys generally don't buy female figs which is why Fembots are not that popular (Transformers) or even Marvel/DC fems. Young girls may take an interest so would they be in the girls aisles?
Then

Then again, I am in Canada and we never got retail GB figs outside of comic book shops, so I guess my concerns are moot anyway.
I'd rather see a Mattycollector 80' Proton Pack made to go with the Neutrino Wand and Trap.

Is it just me or does the picture at the top look like the Ghostbusters are standing in the American Horror Story Hotel lobby?

They look okay - not as bad as I expected. Now let's see how the new Ecto-1 toy will look like.

Every so often as a kid, you'd walk through the toy section and there would be that one shelf of unsold toys from a movie/show that didn't do well or kids didn't like. Like Lost in Space (the movie) for example. I predict Ghostbusters will have that distinction in 2016.

Who are these for?

i mean, i understand them existing and everything, but who the hell is buying these? Girls don't play with action figures, boys don't want female action figues... weird older nerds who collect everything?

Ya kno... That IS pretty cool to see a set of quality action figures of an entirely female team...I just wish it could have happened with a better group of women and a better movie.
