Oh calm down, that happens with ALL GB merch.

A very select few get it before it's officially on shelves, then they try to flip it on eBay for ridiculous prices.

Then the product is officially released and the scalpers go away for a while.

What was the price on the ecto? It's not making me want to buy it over the Kenner, but I do need to sacrifice an Ecto to some 3-year-olds

It looks a LOT like the Star Wars retro collection card, I hope Hasbro re-releases the RGB figures :D
Acutally, I think they were selling the RGB toys at some point, still using the Kenner brand, but adding the Hasbro Logo on the back of the box. I believe it was under Hasbro's "Kenner Classics" branch.

Does anyone know why the fright features ghosts have been changed in the recent release? Peter and Winston now come with simple recolors instead of the Terror Dog and Slimer. Just curious, really dig the look of those guys but unfortunately have only grabbed the recent releases.

Are all of these new figures likely to go up through Hasbro Pulse for pre-order or are they dropping straight to retail sooner?

The cheaper Fright Features line is more appealing to me than the Plasma ones. Love that the Podcast figure comes with a tiny Bug-Eyed Ghost.

And I'm pretty sure there's a Drool in one of the Ectoplasm pots. They are up on Amazon UK but not available to order yet - basically, how soon can we get our hands on all the different lines they just announced? There are tons of toys here and I love it.

You mean a Plasma Series Ecto that fits the figures scale-wise?

The same one pictured in deadderek's post above.

Speaking of which...

Just a couple hours ago I was at the Target in Avon, Indiana. They had Fright Feature Ray and Egon, and the above ECTO-1. It's either a lot smaller than the Kenner one, or it's going to take some assembly--the box seemed a lot smaller than the old Kenner ECTO boxes.

It's basically has the roof off and there is assembly down to putting the White on the White Wall Tires (as stickers)

So... Do we know if the Fright Features toys available in Walmart/Target are going to be available online or in the UK?

Scalpers have them on Ebay... £25 for the Muncher figure, and I would go for it but they could be on Amazon UK for like £15 in a week or so.

Still nothing. Usually when there has been a Hasbro blowout - the items go up on Hasbro Pulse and Zavvi the next day. So far I'm hitting refresh all around the internet and cannot find these new figures except for Entertainment Earth US. Amazon.com has some, but not the UK site. Guess they may stagger them to tie-in with movie promotion... plus the usual covid delays.

Edit: So some are showing up now on Amazon.co.uk

Fright Features Ecto: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ghostbusters-G ... 081W1DTLR/
Fright Features Venkman with Terror Dog: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ghostbusters-F ... 081W1J9N6/
Fright Features Winston with Slimer: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ghostbusters-F ... 081W19TGX/

Plasma Old Venkman: https://www.amazon.co.uk/GHB-PLASMA-SER ... 08MV9YFJB/
Plasma Old Zeddemore: https://www.amazon.co.uk/GHB-PLASMA-SER ... 08MV9X8PH/

Plasma Podcast: https://www.amazon.co.uk/GHB-PLASMA-SER ... 08MV9TP1X/

The rest of the plasma figures also up there if you search "hasbro ghb figure"
But no Muncher and the ghosts yet.

Cheers for the links, C,HC.

I'm a little startled how much they're charging for the Plasma series figures (if Venkman's anything to go by). The Diamond Select figures retailed for around £30, and frankly the production quality was a lot better with those.

But... I really do want that Tobin's Spirit Guide accessory, and the (non-poseable) Terror Sentinel.

Winston's newspaper accessory is chock-full of in-joke references:
