The Fright Features line was the second assortment of human characters and was the first line to feature the Ghostbusters secretary, Janine Melnitz. Each character sported an odd looking suit and came packaged with a mini ghost and weapon. When the arm of the figure was pressed down, a feature would make the character appear frightened by having their eyes bug out, their mouth open, etc.

Kenner Products was a toy company founded in 1947 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The founders were three brothers: Albert, Phillip, and Joseph L. Steiner. They named their company 'Kenner' after the street where the original corporate offices were located. Its lines included The Six Million Dollar Man, Star Wars, Super Powers Collection, and of course, The Real Ghostbusters. The company was purchased in mid-1991 by Hasbro and their existing product lines were merged in 2000.

First Series

Meet The Real Ghostbusters.. wiseguy Peter Venkman, practical Ray Stantz, science-minded Egon Spengler and the ever-helpful Winston Zeddmore [SIC]. Standing 5 1/4" tall, they are articulated at head, arms and legs. Each figure comes with a clip-on Proton Pack and Nutrona Blaster with spinning "laser" action. Each hero also comes with a different ghost companion, which can attach directly onto the figure, for a complete haunt-and-bust play situation.

First Series Ghosts

Oh no! They're heading this way... the wildest, weirdest assortment of ghosts you've ever seen - or sold! With all kinds of ways to trap and attack our heroes.

The Stay-Marshmellow Man may be smiling, but he's 6" of ghostly nastiness (larger than hero figures). Articulated at the head and arms.

Green Ghost is always hungry - his mouth can be opened and closed, and he even comes with his own pizza, watermelon and T-Bone steak. He's articulated at the arms and tail.

Buy-Eye shoots a unique weapon: his blood-shot eye, which pops right out of its socket! Thanks to articulated arms, he can also hold his eyeball right in the palm of his hand, so he can see what's behind him.

Bad-To-The-Bone has a rib cage that opens and closes to trap a hero figure inside. When his skull fits over the hero's head, his eyes pop out and his jaw drops. His head is also removable!

H2Ghost is really two complete ghosts that combine to form a single creature. Each of these split personalities squirts a stream of water.
