These'll probably run $150-$200 a piece. The Spenglar head sculpt looks great.

Just saw these on Toyark. Wow, what a nice surprise. Only downside is that I guess this means no Hot Toys. Still...these look great.

Is that the love child of Jonathan Banks and Bill Murray?

Seriously running out of room in the office! This is going to be costly!

No kidding! I have a spare corner in my office and a small collection of 12" figures. After this summer, I very well might have a Ninja Turtle, Keaton's Batman, and Venkman posed up playing poker together. I'm eyeing an empty corner in my office! If I like McKinnon is GB16 as much as I'm thinking I will, she might join the party.

Now to seek out 1/6 scale beer bottles and Chinese take-out.

One of the 1/6th Scale collecting Facebook groups I am on posted them up. There were some more pics of the 2016 GB prototypes as well. But I fully admit to not caring enough to save those pics. ;)

The only thing I don't care for are the expressions on the characters faces. They look really angry. Egon was a more serious character which makes his expression a little more excusable, but Venkman doesn't really look like Venkman to me.

Could you send me a PM with a link to the Facebook group? I'd like to get a look at those shots of the 2016 figures.

these are not official, Sony has already said Blitzway is the only current 1/6 scale license holder.

:whatever: Honestly, they looked like amateur customizer sculpts to me.

What if they're licenced to a non-western market? They look pretty advanced (sculpts, detail, light-up features) for unauthorised merchandise.

Yeah... The more I think about it, the more I don't understand how these couldn't be licensed in some way. I mean- Look at that booth. That is a lot of money and attention put into promoting unlicensed product.

When Art Figures does unlicensed figures (like the Dredd figure), they go out of their way to make sure they never call it that license by name. Instead of Dredd (which it obviously was), he was called "Heavy Armored Special Cop" and there was no Dredd logo or name anywhere. Same with their movie Punishers... those were things like "Art Saves".

Their booth has the Ghostbusters name everywhere. I am just scractching my head on how they would be taking a risk doing all that without a license to produce them SOMEWHERE.

They were pending Licensor approval, Sony decided to go with Blitzway, approval never came

Ah, that would change things significantly then.

A shame, as with a little tweaking to the sculpts, those would've been phenomenal.

lots of properties go through serious development phases, some getting all the way to pre tooling for masters before they are yanked from production, hell, NECA has almost as many unreleased figures that went all the way to the tooling process only to never see the light of day as they do figures that have been released, but it is kind of rare for a company to go this far before receiving license status.

Some looking better now with finalizing, Venkman looks off a little, but Egon is pretty spot on
