I also bought at least two of the Stay-Puft/Terror Dog set.
Though I did get a bunch of extra Terror Dogs through various means... including reverse-engineering the design from the first released image and buying the requisite bricks to build my own copies months before the set's actual release.
Internally, I got one thing wrong, but it doesn't show from the outside.

Mike Lane posted this on Facebook.
He even did the two Venkman torso detail.
His recipe uses Yoda legs, since the poseable legs of Dustin unfortunately are a dark tan and don't match the GB torsos.
But I cheated. I first tried using two 1x1 round plates between the cylinder sections (seen at top) but I didn't like the interruption of the shape. So I sliced a 2x2 round plate in half instead.
I’m struggling to find a hair match for Phoebe, but I’m thinking a Harry Potter head would work well as long as the scar is covered.

Margaret Hamilton Head (37357)
LOL, I thought this was the only "Margaret Hamilton" that Lego had made! <rim shot>

If you think you’ve got the perfect piece(s), post them here to make it easier on all of us.I guess I really should have bought that Stranger Things set, huh?

You might could take Harry's scar off that way, but the abrasive nature of it leaves the plastic a bit dull.
Anyone experimented with other chemicals to remove Lego paint without damaging the plastic?
It's just unfortunate it's a mirror-image of how Phoebe's hair actually falls over her face.
This was the second-best option, though I don't think it's long enough, even though it does sweep/fall the correct way:
