These must be pre production as there are no name badges and the pipe is photo shopped

You get charged now when ordering from GBFans. We have a set number of Minimates we are going to get, so pre-ordering is actually purchasing one of the sets.

You can see the name badge "bump" on these figures that were used on the movie minimates (the square over the left pocket). They don't bother me though. :cool:

Actually they did have name badges on RGB, but they only made mention of them in curtain episodes.

Can't wait for these. I agree with Buckynohair, I think they look better than the movie-mates.

These mini-mates always impress me with how much they can get the feel of the character down on that little cylinder head! The RGB Ray is just perfect! It was the same with the film versions as well, I could look at the figures face and know exactly what scene they were referencing with that look.

These look GREAT! I hope they make as many as they did of their movie counterparts... I'm gonna get em ALL!

One thing I notice though; their equipment is movie-based. Egon's gun, from that angle, looks like it might be RGB, but eh...regardless. These Minimates are gonna be awesome!

In case anyone hasn't seen this, it looks like Art Asylum plans to make "Blacky" as well! From what I understand, he's also "transformable" like the terror dogs. Check it out:

Only visible in one episode Elementary, my dear Winston and on the cover of issue #2 of Now's The Real Ghostbusters Starring in Ghostbusters II.

Yeah...they're using the same molds as their movies counterparts, which explains the name tags. Ray and Winston's belts are unique (Winston's is low and straight whereas Ray's dips down toward the middle), and Egon and Peter's are the same. It's actually kind of cool that they made the effort to have some differences between molds.
