[UPDATE] GBFans has this link to ToyArk, which has some amazing pics.

Mattel rolled out prototypes of 6″ (5.5″ in reality) Louis, Courtroom Peter, as well as sweet accessories coming with future releases of 12″ figs (most likely the ones they said they’re re-release – the cool new accessories explain how they’re going to make them attractive to collectors who bought the first figs) – GB1 and GB2 jumpsuits, road-work/subway exploring gear, SLIMER THROWERS, TERROR DOGS,cameras, boomboxes, DANCING TOASTERS, and more!

I just realized, the Terror Dog head is not for a figure, but is the statue “Who turned out the lights” head piece for Louis. Bloody hell.

Nothing is too arcane for the accessories, as they’re even showing off the prototype of what looks like Ray and Egon’s glass jar of pop-corn from the interview with Dana.

Mattel shows off new figures at NY Toy Fair – 3 mystery 6" figs in 2010!

It’s Toy Fair time again, and this year Figures.com has nabbed some nice pictures of various Ghostbusters figures at the Mattel booth – of note are a shot of all four 12″ figures, a shot of the upcoming Slimed Peter 6″, and…

…6″ Ray in lab coat – and he’s got the sniffer (though we’re not sure he’s using that thing correctly.) Word from the show is that Mattel will be releasing six of the 6″ figures this year, which will move beyond just the four guys. We know of three already – Peck, Slimed Peter, and apparently this new ray. So, what will the other three be?

MattyCollector updates site for Ghostbusters

R1242_fullsizeimage01MattyCollector.com has finally added a section specific to their line of Ghostbusters toys – this section is showing not just the 6″ Egon that was released at San Diego Comic Con this Summer, but the 12″ and 6″ Ray figures out October 15th and the 12″ Egon and 6″ Winston out December 15th (which completely invalidates the release dates they announced at SDCC, and suggests that they’ll be releasing the figures in pairs every two months, though that’s just wild speculation.)

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.
