Who isn’t aware of the legendary movie “Ghostbusters” in 1984; and an even legendary release of its characters in the form of a toy which you can play with and pretend to be in the movie? Gotten all nostalgic, isn’t it? The same legacy has followed after the release of the new Ghostbusters movie this year. All new characters, Jillian Holtzmann, Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, and Patty Tolan, are molded into toys to release the new line of Funko POP Movies: Ghostbusters 2016 Action Figures.
All the characters can be bought individually through websites such as Amazon.com ranging from $6.71 to $8.78. You can also get them in a set of three, which will help you collect more characters at one go, and you also save some pennies! You can get the set of 7 characters at a cost of $56. You can get them in sets of 3, 4, 7 or 8.
Who would buy this?
People from the 80’s and 90’s are less than amused by the idea of replacing the old and legendary characters from the 1984 Ghostbusters with the new ones in 2016. They might look forward to something fresh and hot off the press with these new characters but children of this generation will see the rebirth of the prodigious Ghostbusters, with new heroes to look up to.
Things we like
The portrayal of the epic Ghostbusters into individual toys is great. The fact that the legacy is continued in the similar manner (just with new characters) is remarkable too, with the exact design and concept of the toy characters. These 6-inch toy characters are the exact prototypes of the new cast except a little cuter.
The resemblance and details to the characters include the blasters on the back packs and the logo near their shoulders, and details such as sculpting Patty’s hair and her golden earrings. They have a 360-degree twisting movement which is fun to play with.
You can proudly put these new characters on your toy shelf right next to the old ones: Peter, Ray, Winston and Egon.
Things we did not like
Are they worth the money?
They surely are! The legendary Ghostbusters characters being molded into tiny cute vinyl toys are worth the price.
Where can I buy them?
There are many online websites such as Amazon.com, Walmart, ebay, and toysrus.com. If you would want to check them out yourself before buying, you can visit any store near you.
This sci-fi flick has done justice to the older one and so have the new toy characters.
