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. Where I wrote: (Am I suppose to quote myself?) 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… Read More
It’s a big month for Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters Selects. Series 2, featuring Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, and Dana Barrett as The Gatekeeper available from better in store and on-line retailers this week. DST also announced Series 3 and Series 4!
Diamond Select Toys posted photos of their upcoming Ghostbusters Selects. In their packaging!
Yesterday, the first photo (that I saw) of actual Diamond Select Toys Ghostbusters figures was shared by David aka tmnt_hunter209 through his iconosquare account. These three figures (part of Series 1) are beginning to arrive at Toys ‘R Us (US). They retail for $12.99 USD each. These are the basic figures without the rooftop diorama pieces. Ghostbusters Selects will arrive at additional retailers, including the on-line variety in January 2016.
If you’ve ever read or collected a toy line you know its a foregone conclusion that the company behind that line is going to make a variant of said figures. Matty what’s their name were practically known for doing this with Ghostbusters. In a different way, Funko and their brands have done something similar (though to their credit better) with both their Pops! and Vinyl Idolz. I wasn’t surprised when I unexpectedly… Read More
Because ghostheads needed more Ghostbusters vinyl figures 😀 Funko and Vinyl Sugar created these small, internationally inspired? Ghostbusters Dorbz! Unlike the choice to make only Peter, Ray, and Egon Vinyl Idolz finally Winston gets his second vinyl figure. Let’s take a more individual detailed look.
One of the last Ghostbusters updates that could have been part of my personal blog site, iRich should have been Funko Pop! Movies Stay-Puft variant. I was probably reorganizing the multiple sites or it was around a major holiday. Then their was that Japanese Ghostbusters month (GB Inc. Search Results) back in January. Before I move on to new Ghostbusters collectibles write ups I finally wanted to finish with Ghostbusters Funko Pop! Movies… Read More
Diamond Select Toys who will be releasing its first series of Ghostbusters Selects (GB Inc Blog Post) later this year is at San Diego Con. On display naturally are the Winston and Ray Ghostbusters Selects. Along with Louis as Keymaster ‘Ghostbuster’ Select. Originally the third figure was up in the air as figures releases can depend on licensee approval. DST’s own Zach Oats thought the third figure could be Dana as Gatekeeper. New Ghostbusters… Read More
I’ve been talking about Diamond Select Toys upcoming 7″ Ghostbusters figures since (GB Inc) New York Toy Fair. With additional information added to Ghostbusters Firehouse. DST officially made the announcement on April 21 about Series 1 and beyond. We most likely knew Ray and Winston would be part of the first figures, the third figure (and the remaining line up) depended on approval. The third figure, “check on the little guy,” Louis Tully… Read More
Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. Originally I didn’t know how I felt about a Funko Pop! Rides ECTO-1. I hadn’t owned other Pop! Rides. If it wasn’t for Funko Pop! Movies Winston I didn’t know if I would add this to my Ghostbusters collectibles. As I was building my Funko Pop! Movies Ghostbusters collection and waiting to own a Funko Pop! Rides ECTO-1 I knew I’d get one. I didn’t know when. As I… Read More
Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. Early on when Funko was beginning to show (GBI) their Pop! Movies Ghostbusters figures, their wasn’t a pic to be found of Winston Zeddemore. Before Funko could receive an on-line petition ghostheads were assured Winston was to come with an Ecto-1 Pop Ride. While Pop! Movies Winston deserves a company car, fans really should have been able to buy a Pop! Movies Winston Zeddemore from the start. In… Read More
