Ecto-Thread: Ghostbusters! (SDCC 2011 News Pg. 18)

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

Stay Puft is sold out. I wonder how many people forgot about him since the standard day sale got top billing?

Ghost trap prop is almost sold out.

Expensive day for many people it looks like.

Wow... my chances of getting him were slim and none then. I wouldn't have been able to order him until 4PM EST at the earliest.

They've got real issues with him and his availability. It's kinda funny (and sad).


I got my Mad Mystery Pack today. Out of the four possibilities, it was the second best one for me: 12" Egon, Slimed Peter, & RTBY Ray. I was hoping to snag the 12" Winston, but Egon is acceptable and I didn't have the Slimed Peter.

While it was a good deal, $100 worth for $40, I now find myself still wanting that Winston and he costs $8 more alone than this lot... :lol:

Maybe someone would be willing to trade you their Winston for Egon?

Anyone wanna see the trap in use?

i dont know who is familiar with the wwe, but thats wwe's zack ryder doin his weekly youtube show, he gets into a ghostbusters gimmick around 3:50, gives a nice plug to mattycollector too, i was laughin at the fact that he bought the pke meter and the trap.

i was also laughin at the fact that he probably also had to deal with the white screen of death.

That's a cool link! The Ghost Trap is most definitely awesome, though I have to laugh at myself a bit for buying it. It's a lot of money for a cool toy that does one thing (admittedly well...). I'm soooooo happy that I picked it up, but I'm now sure "Prop Collecting" just isn't in my future. :lol:

So check out this interesting find in the "prototype market":

The owner says it's not swappable like the others... so I have no idea what Mattel has planned, if this is some type of bonus, or if this is something that ultimately got scrapped...

Maybe some type of Con Exclusive thing . . . ?

Definitely NOT worth the extra entire figure . . . typical Mattel, and typical for this botched line. :matty:
