Pre-orders for Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters Series 6 are available to pre-order on-line.
From Big Bad Toy Store:
A Diamond Select Release! It’s the 15th-anniversary of the Select action figure format, and DST is continuing one of its most successful Select lines to date! With the 15-figure Rooftop diorama completed, DST is starting a new diorama-building series of Ghostbusters movie action figures, based on 1989’s Ghostbusters 2!
Series 6 will include Ray Stantz in his gray jumpsuit and gear, Louis Tully in his tan jumpsuit and gear, and Vigo the Carpathian. Plus, each figure includes pieces from a new diorama so fans can start to build the sign and doors from the Ghostbusters’ fire house headquarters!
Fire house parts will be inluded with the 15 figures total in Series 6-10, and these diorama pieces are exclusive to the speciality market. Each figure comes packaged in display-ready Select packaging, with side-panel artwork for shelf reference. Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!
Series 6 features Ray Stantz, Louis Tully as a Ghostbuster, and Vigo are expected to be available sometime in November 2017.
In November 2015 Hollywood Collectibles Group just in time for Black Friday began selling their 1:4 Peter Venkman. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, November 27, 2015)
Less than two full years later Hollywood Collectibles Group has 1:4 Ray Stantz ready for pre-order to take up ghostheads display space.
Funko recently announced wave 2 of their Pop! Tees. Among the likes of some jokerish space civil war t-shirts is the above Ghostbusters Pop! t-shirt. We know Pop! Movies Winston Zeddemore (iRich Blog Post, December 28, 2014) is smaller in scale, that isn’t a reason to exclude him.
You may remember Funko originally released (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) a Ghostbusters Pop! Tee as a SDCC 2015 exclusive. Which was later sold at retailers and on-line.
Each of Funko’s Pop! Tees come with a Pop! Mini Standee collector card. They’ll be available during Summer 2016.
During February’s New York Toy Fair Diamond Select Toys gave ghostheads their first look (GBI Blog Post, February 16, 2016) at Ghostbusters Glass Tumblers.

Depending on your age you may remember licensed character glassware. Which may have been part of a food promotion, (for a price) maybe from a gas staton, mail away, or easy as buying in store. Their was a time depending on geographic location their were Ghostbusters character glassware. Same for Ghostbusters II.
DST knows their audience (and if you’ve seen or have their BTTF glasses) and will be coming out with 4 different Ghostbusters glasses. With art that reflects the characters. These glasses also include other iconic characters and themes from Ghostbusters.
