Ghostbusters Review: Winston Zeddemore (& Ecto-1 Ornament)
A few days after Christmas, I finally received what will be the centerpiece of my Ghostbusters collection, a movie accurate figure of Winston Zeddemore. As I said in my Ray review, I really can't pick a least favorite Ghostbuster. Each one has their strengths and their importance to the overall story. It wouldn't work if one of them were missing. What I can do, is pick a favorite and it's always been Winston Zeddemore.

Most Requested Figures: The Real Ghostbusters – Samhain
Sometimes as toy collectors, we can look across our displays and, no matter how many toys we have, only see the ones that aren't there. They are the missing figures. The characters toy companies never got around to, never thought were important enough, or worse - the figures companies felt the need to show us at comicon in the "We're Never Gonna Make These" case...
I love Ghostbusters. I'm looking forward to picking up Winston in December, and then Containment Unit and Venkman sometime next year. But, in the back of my mind, I'm holding on to some excitement. Coveting it. And Mattel is not going to get it from me until they make Real Ghostbusters toys. I think a large part of the MOTU success is that Mattel is copying the old toys. They're not trying to make Filmation accurate characters or interpret the designs in a new way (I do love my 200x, but still). They're taking toys from our youth and updating them to modern times (y'know, "like you remember").
