This month’s Previews magazine is soliciting orders of the Ghostbusters monster figures by NECA (see below), specifically the 15″ Mr. Stay-puft and two Terror Dogs. Stay-puft is listed at a SRP of $16 and the Terror Dogs are listed at $12 each. While no release date has been announced, being solicited in Previews usually means a release date thre months from now. This being the February Previews, that would be April-May.
[UPDATE] RD, at the Ghostbusters Message Boards, spotted some cool pics of the figures at the Action Figure News website. The Terror Dogs appear to be the same picture flipped and Slimer and Stay-puft are made from the same sculpts as NECA’s Headknocker figures – however, as these are early PR art, it’s unlikely that they represent the final product. More important is the ACN article that accompanies the pictures that says that word at the UK Toyfair (where the pictures were scored) is that NECA has all the character likeness rights from the movie. If that’s true, then hopefully we’ll see other, human, characters, like Louis, Dana, Janine, and the boys themselves.
[UPDATE MORE] My man Duran sent me a link from figures.com, where they provide little info, but some more sweet pictures of the figures, with a promise of more good stuff to come this week.
