Mattel confims plans for a future 4-pack of figures!

Toyguru, one of Mattel’s moderators at their Matty Collector messageboards, has confirmed that the company does have plans to release a 4-pack of the 6″ Ghostbusters action figures at some point in the future. When that point is is up in the air, as is final confirmation that the plans will in fact be put into action (and aren’t just ideas they’re kicking around), but we can safely assume it will be much later in the year, once all 4 Ghostbusters have been released. It’s speculative, but not wildly so, to assume that the pack will not come with all the extras (ie ghosts, etc.) the singular figures do – it’s also means fans wanting a containment unit will have to make a point of buying the Walter Peck figure in the next few months.

"We haven't had a completely successful taste of this equipment." [UPDATE]

Kayels attended a friend’s birthday party this past week – the minimally named D is apparently a big Ghostbusters fan and his brother set to work with online prop reference to create an amazingly detailed proton pack cake – I’m including the full image, so be sure to click on it to see the crazy level of detail. Licorice wire and edible labels!

Thanks to SRT40 for the heads-up!

[UPDATE] SRT40, whom I think is the lucky birthday boy, and pal kayels, who posted the cake picture in the first place, have provided some more details.

# SRT40 Food colouring printed on icing for labels 🙂 Half cake was victoria sponge, half chocolate. Note the repainted kenner trap.

# kayels some of the cake was chocolate some plain.Everything is edible apart from stitches to hold the sugared jelly strips 2gether

In addition to the awesome cake, SRT40 also got a second Ghostbusters surprise;

# SRT40 Also received an overhauled Kenner Ecto 1, with the objective being ‘what the toy should have been’!! 😀
