[Discuss] [History] [Revise]Toys R Us Minimates Wave 1



The first wave of Toys "R" Us exclusive MiniMates gives some interesting ghosts and even more interesting Ghostbuster variants on what could have been a plain as bones run of toys.
'

Slimed Peter & Clear Slimer

'



Slimed Peter is one of the first variants released and he looks just awesome. The attention to detail is not missed with this minimate. Same as Peter's regular figure, the slimed variant has Bill Muray's features, right down to the receding hair line, but this time with a much more shocked expression, and of course the green slime all over him.
The slime spatters are more to the left (much like in the movie after the ugly little spud takes him down) and is painted on in with a glossy finish to give it that wet, shiny look which really makes it pop out.
The Neutrona Wand can detach from the highly detailed pack, and his radio can come off his belt as well.
Round-a-Bout







Clear Slimer is shiny and it's warped shaped combined with it's transparency give's it a nice gleam. It comes with a green trasperant stand as well (I would've preffered a clear one myself) to keep him in the air. His face is painted on and not transparent, which looks ok, but he looks like he's wearing eye liner. His arms are very confined due to his body structure, but they didn't move much in the movie anyway.
This version of Slimer was originally planned to have food inside his belly, but due to production costs Art Asylum scrapped it.
As the first Slimer released it's not a bad one by any means and goes well with Slimed Peter at his side.

Dr. Egon Spengler & Library Ghost

'




Dr. Egon Spengler's mini has a very stern look on his face, hiding behind his rather prominent glasses. Much like the character brought to life by Harold Ramis. The name tag also has SPENGLER written quite legibly across it in red. On his right arm the Ghostbusters Logo is proudly displayed, bright and very noticeable.
Egon comes with a Proton Pack which is not detachable. The Neutrona Wand comes off the pack, and is attached by a small string of plastic. The Wand has an added handle to make it easier for the minimates to hold it.
The Pack itself is highly detailed in its design, with minimal paint apps, but said paint apps are put in just the right spots. The 4 lights of the cyclotron for example are a bright red, while some spots are touched in a shiny silver.
As expected, Egon also comes with a mini PKE Meter, the arms and screen have a shiny silver paint applied. The PKE can attach to Egon's belt much like the Neutrona Wand can attach to the Proton Pack.

Also, along the belt the belt gizmo sits.
Round-a-Bout







The Librarian, AKA Eleanor Twitty, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend The Collector for keeping the Gozarian Codex from him. She was years later seen haunting the New York Public Library in 1984 and was the 1st ghost ever hunted by the Ghostbusters.
However, she was never trapped by the Ghostbusters until 1991 when she resurfaced during the Shandor Incident.

The Librarian's MiniMate comes in a shiny translucent purple. She appears to be in mid-transformation with her teeth baring and her tattered clothes on her shoulder a fluster.

The Librarian comes with an Open Book which she can hold in her claws

GB2 Winston Zeddemore & Terror Dog

'




The Every Man's Every Man, Winston Zeddemore rounds out the team with his down-to-earth attitude.

In Ghostbusters 2, Winston played by Ernie Hudson, shaved off his mustache and had a different hair style as represented with his minimate. As well he wears the darker Charcoal Gray uniform with the "2" Logo.

As with all uniformed busters, GB2 Winston comes with the standard Proton Pack and attachable Proton Stream.
Round-a-Bout







When Louis Tully & Dana Barrett became possessed by Gozer's minions, they eventually transformed into what is commonly reffered to as Terror Dogs.

While this Terror Dog is similar to the one released in the 1st DST 4-Pack, this one can not be transformed into Louis.

Gooey Ray Stantz & Exploding Stay Puft

'




"It just popped in there." Was all Ray could say when he accidentally conjured up a 100ft Marshmallow Man.

After defeating Stay Puft and closing the gates to Gozer's Dimension, the Ghostbusters found themselves in a rather gooey aftermath, covered in the sugary sweet innards of Stay Puft.

Ray's minimate, as before really shares no likeness to Dan Aykroyd, is made of a white plastic with paint added to certain details to show he is just covered in goo.
Round-a-Bout







This red, transparent Stay-Puft represents the Sailing Confection just as he is exploding on the rooftop of the Shandor Building.

CourtRoom Peter Venkman & Washington Square Ghost

'




After being arrested for drilling a large hole in the middle of 1st Ave, Peter, Ray, & Egon were arrested and brought before Judge 'The Hammer' Wexler the very next day. The Judge, in his fury, accidentally summoned up the Scoleri Bros and it was up to the trio to save the day.

The Minimate versions of Peter sport the best resemblence towards any of the human characters. You look at it, and you know it's Bill Murray.

This Peter comes in a nice suit, with a red tie, and his ever faithful Proton Pack.
Round-a-Bout







During Vigo's attempt to take over the city, ghosts were swarming everywhere, including this ghost that terrorized Washington Square.

In the movie, it is only seen breifly, but this Minimate is a nice representation of it, reusing old parts from other minis, including Slimer, the Terror Dogs, and the hands from a Marvel Minimate: lady Deathstrike.

So while this ghost is just a rehash of parts, and it's nowhere to scale of what it is in the movie, it's still a nice addition to the ghost side of the GB MiniMates line.
