    Is this going to Transform??? if so, you rule! for some reason, I watched 1 and 2 on AMC last night, was thinking the entire time I need to get on a custom with this. I was also thinking (feel free to use these ideas) It transforms into a ghostbuster (mostly beige in color with proton-pack on the back) and the engine comes out and transforms into Slimer....

    Thanks!

    No but I agree that would be awesome. I just realized I didn't choose non-transformer. I was just thinking repaint... I'll see if I can change that.

    This is for folks who want to upgrade their GB collection of use it as a back drop for the new Matty collection. Just like the Firehouse.

    If you're talking about the 1/21 scale I think it's die cast... but I also thik they go for over $100 to $200.

    If you are referring to the Polar Lights Ecto-1 model,it's actually smaller than 1:24 scale.
