In an update on our previous story, toy manufacturer Playmobil has been showcasing it's new Ecto-1A set and 6-inch upscaled Ghostbusters figures at New York Comic Con.

Those already familiar with the Playmobil Ghostbusters series are unlikely to be disappointed, as the reproduction of the car appears to be to the same high standard as its predecessor.

Prices and release dates are still yet to be confirmed. More photos of the sets can be seen via the gallery at MUReview.net

I don't have the first wave of Playmobil merch. Thr Ecto 1-A looks amazing though! I'm assuming Ecto 1 was scaled to the regular sized playmobil figures. Since these new figs are up scaled, will the Ecto 1-A be up scaled too? And if so, might I be able to fit Matty or diamond Select figures in there?

The vehicle(s) are scaled to standard Playmobil figures. The upscaled ones are a separate line of playmobil. They released up scaled characters with the last batch as well

I for one cannot wait for the Ecto1A, so pumped! Hope they center the logo on the hood to resemble the actual vehicle and they do print on the decals to the finished model

The dish looks too big.

I suspect they've reused the satellite dish piece from one of the Police Station sets, and made a new support piece that's similar to one of the previously-produced parts... Which is why it's larger than it should be.

Wish they'd release just the Real Ghostbusters figures without the weird vehicles they came with. Maybe a collectors 4 pack or something.
