A post on Reddit claims it will be $50 but I'm not sure if there is any official word yet.
It's a shame that they aren't including a Zuul Head for people that collected Clortho already as the BAF.
Though equally a shame that they didn't make the BAF Zuul if this was in the pipeline. Could have even put the head in with Dana.

I'm guessing that this was meant to be a con exclusive that has been shifted due to Covid.

@GK45: It would not surprise me at at all if this action figure set was intended to be an exclusive to San Deigo Comic Con this year and got moved to Hasbro Pulse when SDCC was canceled. I agree, it would have been nice if the Plasma series Dana Barrett had included a Zuul Terror Dog head as an accessory. It is just really lazy that Hasbro is giving us the Vinz Clortho head a second time in with this upcoming set.

Looking forward to seeing what Hasbro has in the pipeline next.

Megalopolis has the Plasma Series Wave 1 set of 6 on sale for $59.99 as part of their summer sale.
https://megalopolis.toys/products/ghost ... -june-2020

Prolly the best price you'll find on these for those still needing them. Was going to grab them this month anyway, so great timing for me.

EDIT: Sold out now. They still have Ray, Peter, Dana and Gozer available for $10.99

Anyway is there any news on the neutrona wand?
The wand is still on track to be released on schedule and there's even an unboxing video out there.

Not been the biggest fan of the Plasma series figures based on pictures online, but they do look a lot better in hand.

Can;t justify getting them all again though, after the effort I put into getting the complete line of Matty Busters, especially when they were never available her in the UK...

Grabbed the entire Plasma wave on ebay. Really glad I did. I think the series suffers for being the third take on the license in this format (plus other scales/price points), which is a shame because they are easily better than both Mattel and Diamond's efforts. Some of the likenesses are a little soft, but still better than the competition. Egon and Dana are the most improved.

I'm hesitant to order that Louis and Terror Dog set, cause I'm kind of expecting Louis to follow in a regular release. He looks good though. I hope the line succeeds, I'm in as long as the quality continues. I'd love to see the Rookie some when.

Yeah, they do look better in person. I'm still a bit disappointed in some of the missing paint aps, like the black elbow pads.
The wand bothers me too.

Someone in, china I think? Got the Tully set early if you want to take a better look at it.

Wonder why Hasbro is giving all these early looks to people in China. *scratches head* Aren't the Ghostbusters movies banned in China because of ghosts?

For anyone wondering about an adapter for the plasma series neutrona wand or the grip tape here's a vid to answer those questions...

Checked through this thread but didn't see any recent updates:

I've been anxiously awaiting the new hasbro kids RP proton pack and MOD proton blaster. Has anyone seen any updates on that product line? It seems to be radio silence out there.

IT was pushed along with everything else when the movie was pushed. the Kenner and wave 1 of Plasma figures are the only official releases right now.

Everything else is tied to the movie; 5 inch line, roleplay toys and wave 2 of plasma figures as they from the new movie no the original.

I'm really looking forward to getting the proton pack and the wand for my two girls. I have one that is 1 and a half and another that is nearly 3. They are just entranced by all the Ghostbuster movies (the 3 year old more than the younger one). When it comes out (or by Xmas that year) and if they are still into Ghostbusters, they would be at the right age for the toy, I think. If I feel ambitious, I would look into trying to mod it for lights and sound. Not sure how that one would work though until I get it in hand (or I see someone else do it on YouTube lol).

Not a fan of 12" packs but I also thought they were going to be real cheap like $10. Their head sculpts look better then mattel's. Probably worth buying to swap heads. Either way looks good for a cheap kids toy

I was thinking and I don't know if this idea was floated around or not yet. After the neutrona wand was released, there has been a wish to get a proton pack to go with it. Word has been mum on that from Hasbro's part. Interestingly enough, Mattel never made one, despite making other props. I guess it might have to do with a cost vs. profitability.

This got me thinking. Since the pack might be a niche thing (and possibly pricey) and Hasbo has a knack for doing crowd funded projects with HasLab, do you think this might be a way to go for them to release a full pack? Possibly even have it be a pack with a classic wand that can be swapped with the Afterlife one?

I think Hasbro has a lot of options with the license but making the smaller Plasma series replicas like the Trap and PKE meter are more likely to happen first. Even though Mattel put out both and Spirit/Rubies continues to release Traps and PKE Meters the demand is still there for them and any improvement in their products vs previous ones by other companies is an almost guarantee sale. I think well see other small Plasma Series replicas before they consider a Proton Pack. My wish is a new Firehouse made exactly like the original and Slime in the old style containers.

True. I expect them to release a trap and PKE meter at some point. Those seem like no-brainers.

I would also love to see a RGB Firehouse, but I feel that might be a longshot. I guess it depends on how much they are willing to extend the RGB Kenner line.

I figure that if they even consider a proton pack, it wouldn't be for at least another year or two at the absolute earliest (assuming the license does well enough for Hasbro to continue it). I'm just speculating on how they would approach such a thing.

I'd personally love for them to try a Plasma series run at the Real Ghostbusters figures - because the DS ones are overpriced now and weren't the best sculpts. Hopefully the scarcity of those figures shows Hasbro there is demand. Although equally I'd love a full Fright Features set.

For 2021 I have the WETA Terror Dog and Ectotron MkII on order. I think I'm pretty much done on movie merch until Afterlife drops and we see what else is in there.

If anything it feels like there has been a glut of merch over the last few years, and discerning which version of which item is worth collecting (or not) has been a part time job! We had nothing for decades and all of a sudden the ratio of product saturation versus source material has tipped slightly in the wrong direction for my wallet.

I may make a post about the various Ecto-1's to illustrate this!
