    Wow! 6" movie Ghostbusters have to be at the top of the "why the hell don't we have these yet?" list. Definite buy. Bill Murray action figure FTW!

    I agree completely... DAMMIT a new series I'm gonna want every last figure of. Ah well, it'll hold me over until Classics 3.0!

    You know I'll be all over this. Good timing also because I think I will pass on the ROTF line. Mattel has to release the Ecto-1. :rock

    That's really exciting. I guess they must have finally gotten Bill Murray to sign off on toys being made in his likeness. It's about time. That guy has done everything possible to make sure that Ghostbusters never did anything more for 20 years, and now all of a sudden he's all about it now that his career is fading out.

    Mattel's Ghostbusters discussion

    Ok, now that Mattel is making a Ghoustbuster line, some questions come to mind:
    1) Where will it be availible? Through stores or just Mattycollector?
    2) Will the actual Ghostbusters be released one per month like MOTUC if they are just online exclusives?
    3) Will we see some actual ghosts from the cartoon, like the Boogeyman, Samhien, etc?

    Wish List
    core (they can either be the movie likeness or the cartoon versions)
    Winston
    Ray
    Peter
    Egon
    Lewis
    Janine

    Ghosts
    Samhein
    Boogeyman
    Bounty Hunter (from one of the later seasons)
    Goozer
    Staypuff Marshellow Man (12 inch)
    Slimer
    Cthulu

    Vehicles/ Playsets
    Ecto 1
    Ecto 2
    Firhouse

    Hopefully we'll get a wide assortment of beasties. I'd love it if they released them in a rotocast/vinyl kaiju style.

    Well the timing is perfect for me. With Transformers and GI Joe shifting to their respective movie lines (That I want no part of) I'll actually have a budget for these.

    I'm really looking forward to this. All I really want are the 4 Ghostbusters in their gear from the first movie, so as long as the figures are sculpted well, this line shouldn't put too much of a hurting on my wallet.

    Boy...this is interesting. Hopefully some interesting figures. I definitely would love to have an Ecto-1 or 2. I'll have to remember this.

    I am all over the 6" line, I'll get the main 4 from the first movie, the Cartoon ones if they look good, and select ghosts. If they do Ecto-1 or Ecto-1A it's game on!

    I guess you don't keep up with current gaming or movie news,Bill is doing Venkman's voice in the new GB game and he will also be reprising his role in GB3.

    Actually I do keep up with it, which is why I said that now Murray is interesting in helping promote the Ghostbusters franchise since the rest of his career is on a downward slope.
