Can you say, “custom figs”?

As mentioned previously, WizKids Games was looking into the possibility of adding Ghostbusters to their upcoming Horror Clix table-top miniatures game – Alien Versus Predator ultimately won the vote, but why waste a perfectly good idea (not to mention figure sculpts?)

An ad poster for Horror Clix hit stores this week and featured are three “Ghost Finder” figures. While some pants have been painted into blue jeans and some random, science-looking equipment added, they are clearly proto-Ghostbusters. Notice the webgear belt and shoulder straps (for backpacks that don’t appear to exist – it’s hard to tell in the promo photo.)

Personally, I’ll be making a few modifications to my figs (for those interested, the Horror Clix set uses the same style stats as the Hero Clix set, meaning Hellboy and the Ghostbusters can battle undead zombies and Morbius.) The game debuts in July and will hit stores in August.

Big thanks to Ethan at Elfsar Comics for pointing the figs out to me.
