I expected this, which is why I just bought Egon. I expect to get Peter and Ray someday in the bargain bin.

Well...Afterlife just got delayed again, from March to July.
All of these delays are seriously killing my excitement for these movies.

Got some of the figures with a big discount from a local shop, but I hate the Murray sculpt. Anyone know of a good replacement head that looks better? It looks like RGB Ray to me for some reason

They are literally the only two I haven't grabbed.

DAMN!!! saw an instagram post of someone finding the plasma figures at walmart clearance to a low $5 bucks!
going to check my walmart later this week to finally get these guys.
Can you share the link or picture? It helps with clueless walmart employees


I found it


Do Wal-Mart's price match other Wal-Marts?

I usually bring a photo or some type of evidence to back up my claim so the employees are aware and can't just brush me off.

"oh I never heard of that discount"

*Photo*

"Alright. I'll mark it down"

Well, sh**, I'll get another Ray for $5 for a self portrait custom, maybe an Egon for the Rookie, too.

I hope these continue when 'Afterlife' eventually appears, but really grateful we got a pretty full set so far, at least. It'd be nice to get a fan channel Janine and really, really nice to get some actual ghosts (Onion head/Slimer and the library ghost are standouts, I guess) but this has been a really solid wave otherwise. Minor gripes everybody has: no differentiation of the Terror Dogs and only one 'stream', but those aside- very happy.

Like with the NECA 'Back to the Future' figures, a vehicle to scale would be a dream (and, like the DeLorean, a base model allows for ammended re-releases based on sequels), but I assume both are real wishful thinking.

I'd also be happy with a Ghostbusters 2 wave or two and (unlike many, I'm sure) a reboot wave.

Looking forward to seeing what Afterlife brings to these and hoping it makes more of these classics viable.

Hasbro has undoubtedly sold tens of these figures.

Yeah, that's not true. I'm part of the official "501st-like" costuming coalition, which has millions of people across the planet, and I can only assume they all bought these, as they tend to buy anything with the GB name on it, even if it sucks (by my opinion). And while these have their issues, they don't suck.

But like most of us here with every line, and especially during a pandemic, I can only imagine they all bought online.

Not to mention in every store in my area, I don't & haven't seen much of these. At best, a random Ray or Venkman sitting by itself with no dedicated peg or shelf tag.

Ah, well there's literally dozens of these at every single store near me. Walmart, Target, Meijers, etc. All with rows of these, untouched, with dust on them.

You know we're not supposed to count the slutty Ghostbusters Halloween costumes in that total. It's just tens of thousands worldwide.

Well, I saw these like three times on shelves (where I got my Winston and Egon) but nowhere else. They got back in stock on amazon recently (my country's). I really do wish they made more waves. At least some RGB stuff would be great. And, I mean, Afterlife is supposed to come out this year. People ARE going back to theaters. I would def go. So hopefully we can see AL this year, and more figures with it.
