    Is one lower leg hollow and the other solid?

    I was hoping for some more influence from The Real Ghostbusters toyline in the packaging, but I\'ll take this.

    Bot mode is garbage, vehicle mode is decent, G1 packaging and tech specs, is what going to sell this overpriced piece. I will probably buy one for the packaging.

    If you have a Gamestop nearby you can do an instore preorder to save on shipping costs.

    I preordered just seeing that it existed, but seeing the box and that motto I may need to order another to display MISB.

    I never thought I'd see marshmallows in a TF Bio in my lifetime. :D

    I’m not the biggest ghostbusters fan but i preordered one of these in the hopes that they continue to do crossovers like this in the future.

    So quick question for any ghostbusters collectors, are there any figures that come with the ghost containment unit that would scale well to this figure? I know there were some figures back around the time of the last movie

    Attention Hasbro: THIS is how Transformers packaging is done. Keep up the good work.

    I didn't realize it at first, but apparently Ectotron is a MASSIVE remold of CW!Hot Spot? Got me to realize further that he's probably gonna be a tall one.

    (Also, changing a fire truck, or what passed for one, to a licensed 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor is no small feat.)

    Yeah, I didn't realize that. It looks much better than way. I hope the final version has it filled in like that.

    You do remember that both arcee and grotusque were toysrus exclusives but also sold on hasbrotoyshop right? This is exactly the same scenario

    What a way for Hasbro Pulse to kick off. The new site is as lame as the old one. Show up a day late to the party and you're S.O.L. Oh well, off to Gamestop to pay the retailer markup.

    I'm also noticing the "proton pack" looks to be removable. Suddenly, I'm regretting cancelling my preorder. Time to go to GameStop!

    HTS didn't do pre-orders, rarely had stock, and was a nightmare to use.

    People being overdramatic as usual.
