So overall 3 new 6" figures, some of the Mego stuff, and a trap. Can't complain.

Anyone snag a picture of the Rookie? He's a favorite! I would love to see a 12 inch with his pack - I would love all the cool lights on the side. If I could own one prop, it would be the Rookie's pack from the beginning of the Ghostbusters game. If only I had the time and know-how to build one!

A rookie is better than no rookie, but I'd rather have the the proton pack maxed out with all attachments. Kind of like it is not coming to 2012. Too many great figures, rgb figures, ecto, stay puft, and trap are eating my Christmas money all up. Ouch, but good ouch.

Keep in mind we're only seeing the prototype... I'm sure more details will come out once reports from the panel come out. Maybe they said they're going to retool his pack.

Scroll down here for pictures guys.

The Retro Action set looks great... and so does everything else honestly!

We're getting both paintings with Vigo... lenticular, and then it looks like the 4 guys and Oscar on the back.
Thanks for the Link! Everything looks brilliant! Looks like the got the goggles right on the Rookie!

still not going to join the ecto-1 club, but i need the Rookie figure, I like that the trap attaches to his belt, i also see a pke meter attached to his belt.
I hope that the pke meter and the goggles are going to be removable.
I also hope they will add the flashlight and walkie talkie to the shoulder straps, and the additional equipment to the pack, if they don't put the equipment on to the pack i would still be ok with it

I just ordered 2 subscriptions... that Rookie figure is just awesome in my opinion... and its just a prototype. I have full confidence the final version will be amazing, but regardless I like what I'm seeing from Mattel right now.

So the Dana figure is going to be a... statue? Not so great.
this might jsut be is super early development, the statue might just be to show what they are going after for the figure and later figure out how to add joints.

If you look close at the Rookie's trap, it has the Game mods on it.
it doesn't look like it to me, the one on his waist is a plain looking trap, and it looks like he will come with a separate trap that can open, on the opening one i don't see the game mods just the hinge for the door to open.

ANOVOS Pack?

I'd be interested in an aluminum motherboard!
