Ghostbusters: Afterlife may still be a quarter of the year away from cinematic release, but the merchandise machine has already kicked off for this weekend's New York Toy Fair, and the first wave of Hasbro's toys which'll be released to coincide with Ghostbusters: Afterlife are destined to leave fans with a strong sense of nostalgia and déjà vu:

Proton Pack -Proton Pack backpack with straps and fittings to accommodate P.K.E. Meter, Ghost Whistle and Proton Blaster accessories. $14.99

Proton Blaster - Proton Pack backpack with straps (Proton Blaster sold separately) $14.99

Ghost Blaster M.O.D. - Consisting of a light and sound version of the standard Proton Blaster, this toy comes with "Blast 'n' Trap" fitting, which will allow the user to "trap" a Ghost, and a "Plasma Stream" fitting, with a more powerful proton stream. Both fittings can be combined, or attached on three separate connection points on the Ghost Blaster. $29.99

P.K.E. Meter - Featuring lights and sound, the P.K.E. Meter is activated by pressing the red button, which raises the detection wings, and the built-in electronic features are activated by moving the meter. $14.99

Ghost Whistle - Featuring over 20 sound effects, including those inspired by Slimer, Stay Puft, the Terror Dogs, and the Muncher, the Ghost Whistle is activated by blowing air through the mouthpiece. $14.99

The concept of RGB movie props is cool, I appreciate that they're in existence for me to look at, they probably will be enjoyed by kids who's parents are Ghostbusters fans but they are an easy pass for me, same with the Gushers, they've got a cool late 80's to early 90's aesthetic to them, I appreciate they are in existence for me to look at but also an easy pass for me. The Ecto-1 I would purchase with the added stipulation of only if we'll have action figures of the original Ghostbusters which I would think we'll get but who knows.

Very nice. The boy will have some of these come summer. He WILL like Ghostbusters!

Except maybe... ghost whistle? Is that a thing from the film do you think or a cash-in toy?

Well..hard to say but this... “inspired by”

Who you gonna scare off? All the ghosts around, with the new GHOSTBUSTERS Ghost Whistle roleplay item, inspired by the new GHOSTBUSTERS: Afterlife movie!

If you're a Pulse Premium member, you get first dibs on the Spengler wand, until 4pm. I grabbed two.

I just got everything through BBTS. I don't mind paying extra just to not have to go through all of that extra Pulse bullshit. The six figure Plasma assortment came to $150 with tax and shipping.

According to the presentation, they were supposed to be on walmart.com at 4pm est. So far, they have not appeared on the website. However, they are all up on Zaavi for preorder, which I have never heard of (I guess its a UK based store and the prices are higher than the US). I don't think I am allowed to link them. Personally, I am waiting for Walmart to get their act together.

No, you're good to link to them.

Zavvi is the reformed U.K. arm of Virgin Megastores, after the Megastores went belly-up around 2007.

U.K. arm of Virgin Megastores evolved into after it went belly-up. For a while Zavvi existed in physical stores formally occupied by Virgin, before it became an online-only retailer.

Ouch. Nostalgia definitely isn't cheap. :(

Just remember it's practically identical to the MattyCollector Thrower.

Walmart currently has their thumbs up their butts. The Plasma series has gone live but is not searchable.

Here are the links:

No Zuul or Gozer.

The parking page for Hasbro NYTF products on walmart's site have all the classic Kenner figures listed except Venkman and are also not live yet. They've been this way for hours. I know because I have been on their site all morning.

Yeah, I just mentioned that they are not searchable. The links are there and you can pre-order them but they will not come up in a search. One of the main reasons why Walmart sucks for exclusives.

If I recall correctly that Afterlife Ecto has already been priced for $30. But I can't seem to find prices for the Fright Feature figures. Do we know what the price is for those?

All information comes directly from Hasbro's newsroom, which is located here: https://newsroom.hasbro.com/media-library. Yes, the classic Ecto-1 is planned but wasn't shown at NYTF. Not sure if that's the original Kenner one or something new? What they did show us was the Ecto-1 Playset that is for their Fright Features line.

I love the classic RGB blue to the toys and despite not having the yellow host connector between wand and pack (I'm sure for those of us that get them for our kids...which is who those are made for btw ;) can mod them and add a hose) I think these really speak to a lot of us who had the RGB blue pack, trap, meter and such. Obviously done for that nostalgia which from most of our posts here...worked. But for those who can't wait to outfit their kids in these It's a very fun time to be a GB and an GB parent
