These do look awesome. Really great likenesses. I don't really like how they all seem to be glaring at something though, and the uniforms look way too clean and perfect for how gritty/dirty their faces look.

At the end of the day, my opinion doesn't matter though, because I can't afford to drop close to a mortgage payment on 4 figures.

Are those 1/6 scale or 1/12 scale?

Yup. Keep thinking of the children for us.

They definitely went with the "rooftop battle" serious faces on these didn't they?

Those are the 1/6 scale figures.

And THESE, are the 1/12 figures...

Wait... So the 1/12 are just standard action figures? I assumed they'd have cloth outfits like the Mezco One:12 line....

Well, now I guess I need both scales of Blitzway. :)

Any more pics of those?

My excitement level jumped quite a bit when I saw these were standard figures. :)

And is there any word yet which scale Ecto is being made in? Or is both?

Does that sign say 4th quarter 2016 release?!?!

EDIT- And there are 5 little name cards... One for each Buster, and a fifth off to the side. If you look directly above it, you can see Slimer's arm!

Ah... I totally missed that Ecto sign. :) Thank you!

Well, that may be unattainable for me. I have the 1/6 scale Hot Toys '89 Batmobile, and both the space it takes up and the cost isn't something I could likely get away with twice. Still... Those figures do look GREAT, so I am assuming their Ecto will be a showstopper as well. Hmmm...

Having those 1/12 by the end of the year though is incredible!

I'll have to see how the Ecto looks like before I think about purchasing it. If it's not accurate, I probably won't get it. One of the reasons I also own the Hot Wheels one.

WOW! Those look sharp... Hope they come with extra, non-screaming heads though...

Wonder what the price point is?

I would assume those are alternate heads, as is the trend with most figures these days. Specially pricey ones like these are prob gonna be, id estimate figuarts area, 60-75$ being a safe bet if they have enough accessories, alternate hands and the like

That is what I was thinking as well... They seem very akin to Figuarts.

So all 4 should set a person back around $300+. Phew...

So many options right now that it will be tough to get each complete line, but I am going to try and at least get all 4 first-movie-uniform Ghostbusters from each manufacturer. Yeah, it may be pricey- But we are living in a unique time right now. We went SO long without product, and now we have this little window where it is available in multiple scales and price points. I don't want to look back 5 years from now when that window has closed and be kicking myself for skipping out.

Holy shit. I can say without a doubt those 1/6 scale are the best sculpts we've ever gotten. Unreal!

Somebody on the sideshow freaks forum (who presumably is at SDCC) wrote that Blitzway won't show the Ecto at SDCC because of some additional tweaks they want to get right before showing it.

Maybe they'll show it next week at the ACGHK, strea... *er* fingers crossed :)

Never been a fan of 1/6, but these 1/12 figures look awesome. They need alternate heads for sure.

I'm not a collector of 1/6 scale but I would make an exception here! These are the best GB sculpts I've ever seen.

The 1/12 scale figures don't excite me as much as most people here, but I think it's because I don't like the open "screaming" mouths. If they have regular heads too, then that might be different.

I'm really hoping someone gets to that booth before the show is over and asks Blitzway's rep if the 1/12 will have alternate heads. Don't care though, both the 1/6 and 1/12 look amazing.

the 1/12 figures with the sculpted uniforms look amazing. I know they are going to do an Ecto-1 for the 1/6 figures, but I hope they do one for the 1/12 figures too.

I hope they unveil alternate head sculpts for the 1/12 figures. Everything about them is near perfect, likenesses included, but the expressions they chose. Maybe if they went with simply worried, concerned, or afraid and not 'jaw dropping.'

Mother puss bucket!

Those 1:6 figures are gorgeous. I don't know how I'm going to afford getting these but I'll find a way. The 1:12 figs are quite nice, too. I don't know if I can handle seeing the 1:6 Ecto-1.

These do look great but my wallet is going to kick me in the nuts. However, with so many reveals this year I am a little confused. You have Mezco doing a line, a possible line from S.H. Figuarts (that Stay Puft is a must for me), Blitzway doing a 1/6" & 1/12" (an Ecto-1) and Soldier Story doing a line or are they the same thing? Along with collecting Diamond Select, for 2016/2017 I will be working a full time job only for Ghostbusters collectibles. Plus, the stuff Hollywood Collectibles and NECA are doing is also going to set one back... What a great time to be a Ghostbusters fan!

So...I was reading articles about these after the show and I saw it come up that Blitzway is also working on 2016 figures. Don't know the source of this info, though. Did anyone else hear it?

Having only the Mattel figures, I'd jump at some collector grade figures of the new Busters.
