some dude already has a shipping box and a figure(s). He posted it on instagram, teenagemutantbuster is his name. Back of card is like the original four busters, how to use stream, but omits picture of child playing with Kenner ghost projection wand. Shipping box said KENNER CLASSICS and then GHOSTBUSTERS in smaller font underneath.

They've either had non-existent listing pages on Walmart, or been out of stock for weeks now. Zavvi in the UK currently has them available to preorder: Link.

I have a set of the four guys coming to me this week. From what I was told by the person I got them from, the series has been delayed until August because of the pandemic.

Wonder if the movie delay will help or hurt the upcoming line. Will stuff get delayed? I doubt they'll release figures from after life. Will we get wto waves of products this summer and next spring? I also wonder if manufacturer delays factor into delaying the movie? Not having merchandise to go along with the movie. They already had stuff not available till August.

I'm hoping that since China is bringing factories back on line we'll still get the retro toys in 2 months. But who knows, Walmart and Hasbro haven't been very communitive thus far. So if they delay the kenner classics we wont know until June.

I would think that most of the toys connected to the first movie and The Real Ghostbusters will come out, even if their is a delay getting them shipped to customers from the respective stores. The Ghostbusters: Afterlife toys, I would think might get held back by Hasbro since the films release date got changed to March.

Here is review of the difference between the 1986 original Peter Venkman action figure and the upcoming reissue:

Weird how the new ones are beter quality than the 1986 figures. I was hoping it was the same molds. But they seem to be made from scratch. Interesting.

I'd guess the figures were 3d scanned, cleaned up and adjusted for ultimate cost efficiency

I'm going with either a fresh physical or digital sculpt.

Sells toys online, I’m assuming he got his sets straight from the factory overseas because he said they did not come from the US. Mine will be here tomorrow.

I love that toy review for the Venkman figure. I think Hasbro was being very smart in altering the figure just enough that they can't be sold as vintage but still look vintage.

and to answer my own question
Coover5 wrote: February 24th, 2020, 10:50 am I know some people put their action figures in protective plastic clamshells. Can anyone suggest a brand suitable for the Kenner figures? I'd love to display them but keep them safe too.
https://toyshield.com/ seems to be the brand. I am curious which ones will work with the Kenner Classics by Hasbro. They are cheaper than I expected which I'm excited about too.

They unfortunately don’t have anymore. Mine should be here shortly and then I’ll post pictures.

Here’s my set that came today. To me, they look like the original sculpts. I’m not really seeing the differences that were pointed out in the video above (obviously the proton pack attaches differently)

Why do I get a strange feeling that the scalpers already have the run or the run is so small that they won’t be making anymore?

They were up. I suspect it could have been a case of someone canceling their order and having their figures go up for sale again.

I think it was their second wave of ordering the preorder. I canceled my Zavvi order and went and ordered my second set and all of my stay puft and slimers from Walmart. Some of the friends I told they were up also went in and ordered their sets as well. You can follow the items on nowinstock.net and get real time alerts when they go back up for sale, that’s how I found out.

no problem, I got notifications that some were back up again but gone shortly after, so I’d follow that and buy when you get the alert, will stop you from having to resort to scalpers.
