I saw that on FB.

I collected a few Playmobils as a kid. Seems like I have a glow-in-the-dark Playmobil ghost-in-sheet somewhere, complete with real metal ball and chain attached to his ankle.

I found that pic online, as well as a few other Playmobil iterations of ghosts they've done over the years.

And I want to say someone once used a Playmobil police car to give their Kenner Ecto some working lights.

[Edit: found the thread but the pic links are dead. http://www.gbfans.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=19190&p=306736&hilit=playmobil+ecto#p306736

I really hope they do an Ecto.

Plus, they have been known to do a firehouse before...

A new trailer for the range has popped up:

Pixel Dan has a video showing all the figured shown at ToyFair 2017:



I really like the look of the Ecto 1 there. I think it might be the best toy version I've seen of the car since the original Kenner Ecto 1

I have to say not bad, might get some for my kid and hopefully get him into ghostbusters. Love the ecto, put looks like the real GB toy. Not crazy about the look of the people toys, but still cool.

Fun to look back on my older comments on this thread and see that I was correct about both an Ecto and a firehouse... but the full line of the Playmobil GBs surpasses my fond hopes.

In addition to the past offerings like ghosts, seen above, I had an idea that certain other older Playmobil toys like police cars and garbage trucks might come in handy to flesh out the scene.

And then I had this impish thought of Tracy the Gorilla coming by the firehouse for a visit.

He just needs a fedora.
