    Interesting, but without any of the Ghostbusters-related accessories [specifically the proton pack and 'ghost trap' roller], it really only resembles the GB version on a very superficial level.

    If they'd gone the extra mile, I'd be all over this in a heartbeat, but as-is it's an easy pass for me. [I own the MP version, so I won't really be missing out.]

    I noticed that MS always half-asses it with their exclusive re-decos: G2 Sideswipe didn't have the spiky wheels and ridiculous guns & sword, Artfire didn't have his Targetmaster... it's just a bit lazy and reeks of cash grab. Compare this to both Iron Factory and NewAge's version of G2 Sideswipe.

    I'm definitely getting the Ghostbusters MS Prime. And sadly, it'll probably push me over the edge into getting the NewAge Ghost Starscream figure as well (even though I kinda swore off NA transparent figures after Shockwave's neck joint snapped).

    I wonder where you could get a properly-sized proton pack for him. Do the Playmobile Ghostbusters' packs come off? I'm thinking that might be about the right size. Gotta find some little GB symbol stickers somewhere, too... maybe there are some Lego options...

    I see what you mean about them not going the whole mile with things like this and it's a real shame. Maybe someone will come up with some 'extras' but I can see why some people wouldn't bother with this one in the first place... got a feeling I will eventually though!! ;)

    We just need a source for some tiny ghostbusters stickers now to really make him look rad.

    definitely my gripe as well - none of the GB bits and pieces. the proton pack would have sufficed. looks like i'll be in the same ballpark as NOCV - i'll be looking for a spare trailer which i can modify to match the MP version.

    well good luck with me doing anything on it. i have several more plamo kits from last year that i haven't touched yet LOL

    @4TonMantis makes proton packs for Siege figs. Maybe you could commission him for a comparable version for this guy

    Hasbro acquired the ghostbusters license this year so that’s convenient

    The Ghostbuster theme, It doesn’t look good, at least to me. The colors don’t pop.

    TF Source just straight up using the word "Ghostbusters" in the item listing. The trademark fights over that name in the 80s were no joke. Somebody's definitely getting sued.
