How are the prices on the official website? Are they reasonable? (I am just getting into collecting the DS Figures.)

Depends, but usually 23 a figure before tax at BBTS and Atomic Empire (the sites I use). Some are cheaper. If you want certain figures or want to build the dioramas you will have to go to ebay or other after market sites, but if you search for obscure comic shop sites you may find some gems.

The hardest to find figures seem to be the original 4 movie busters and the GB2 gray suit busters... which does make sense.

Slime Blower Ray, We're Back Venkman, Vigo and Janosz have been especially tricky to get my hands on from the GBII range, Winston and non-slimed Venkman were the most difficult from the GB1 line.
We have no idea what figures will be next and likely will not find out until July or June. However, it is possible.
Though they're likely to be more RGB figures, based on the context of Diamond's response.

Got my Real Ghostbusters action figures from Big Bad Toy Store today. They look great and I cannot wait to get the other action figures from this series to build the firehouse diorama. Having the RGB's with the different colored Proton Streams is a nice call back to the Kenner action figures. Cannot wait to display them next to the Ghostbusters II action figures.

Can any UK fans tell me the best place to buy the Real Ghostbusters figures from? I ordered RGB Peter off of Amazon last week and they've sent me GB2 Ray Stantz instead :/

Amazon finally has RGB Ray and RGB Peter back in stock but still no RGB Egon. Amazon said they dont even have him in their system. I asked Diamond and they said, and I quote " I dont know, try Big Bad Toystore or Entertainment Earth." Kinda sucks cant get the last figure through amazon but oh well, the other sites will do.

@toby88, I have the same problem myself with trying to get an GB2 We're Back Egon. He sold out before I could order him and currently amazon and many other places only have the ToyRUs exclusive version (without the diorama piece) for sale.
I am going to try and see if my local comic book store can order him for me.

It's really not surprising at all that Diamond told you to try other sites... they're not going to be able to help with Amazon's stock information.

From the looks of it, Big Bad Toy Store is also sold out of RGB Egon. Entertainment Earth no longer has a listing either, so they've likely sold out as well.

Looking at eBay, the figure has risen in value tremendously. I guess since it's sold out everywhere now, it's become kind of a rare collectible already just a few months after release.

I ordered one set from big bad boy and one from atomic. Atomic came first, both came in weeks ago.. Entertainment Earth is bad for pre orders, fine if it's in stock. Amazon is just too questionable who the seller is.. I've Bought gb DST from all 4, probably do atomic next time.

I just remembered they also said "We don't have any in stock either." In regards to RGB Egon. Is that normal for Diamond not to know if Amazon has them in stock? Does Amazon buy them directly from Diamond? The hunt continues!

A month after I submitted the order, Amazon finally took my money for Ray and Venkman. They claim it should be here April 26th, but haven't shipped it yet.

Like I said before, why did Bezos put Slimer in charge of this?! :lol:
I ordered both on March 20th, received Ray today, tracking says Peter tomorrow.
