I just want something to display on my wall. Kind of a bummer the packs won't swap with the original figures. I wonder if their fright 5" movie figures packs will swap with the Kenner re issuesI wonder that too. I personally really hope so--I'm more likely to get the new Fright Feature figures if they do.
For a long time now, I have dreamed about how cool it would be for Hasbro to reissue the 1980's Real Ghostbusters action figures. Many other toy companies have reissued older toys with great fanfare from adult collectors, and I am sure that when the Kenner reissues arrive in the hands of fans it will have a similar reaction.

I would be far more excited if they moved 2 of the OGBs to wave 2 and replaced them this wave with some ghosts. I am very surprised that they did not put out Slimer in wave 1 though. Maybe the idea will be that wave 2 is a ghost wave? The BaF being Zuul, have a possessed Luis, then maybe Peck and 4 ghosts (Slimer, Subway Ghost, Library Ghost, and Taxi Cab ghost).
I think these are the same scale as the Mattel stuff so I guess the lines are compatible in some way. So if they never get to Peck or Luis, I guess we can use the old ones in the same display. Same with the ghosts.
This is a weird move by Hasbro. I get not being the same as Marvel Legeds since they run big anyway, but at least make them true ^ inch scale then instead of this weird 5.6 stuff. But whatever. I don't really mix and match my collections anyway so I guess this doesn't really hurt things for me in anyway. If anything, they will just look even more in scale with the DST roof scene. Looks like I will put my DST stuff with the fire house and the Hasbro stuff with the roof top.

But know, apparently the bubble is bigger on the reissues in front of the ghost than the OG's.The company Toy Shield sells cases for the Original Kenner line and I took measurements of the Hasbro, they seem to fit just right. 8.5"x 12" on the card and the Ghost bubble is 2" deep, the case can hold up to 2.4" deep.
