More on GB Minimates at Toy Fair 2010 – Accessories!


Earlier the photos coming out of Toy Fair, showed a line of new Ghostbusters figures, with a Ray/Winston bubble 2-pack behind them. Later photos had the 2-pack moved, a title card added, and concept art for the lab coat Ghostbusters on display.

The title card confirms that the figures are Wave 4 and are due July ’10 – better yet, the concept art shows what the lab coat Ghostbusters come with for gadgets;

– Peter w/ video camera and hip video recorder
– Ray w/ gas sniffer and sniffing wand
– Egon w/ spectral analyzer colander AND stethoscope AND scientific calculator AND PKE meter!

Smart chappies will remember this is what the guys are sporting in their commercial shoot (which is the only time all three wore lab coats.)

Dana can be seen at the bottom of the poster, which shows that besides her grey dress (as seen in the figure) she’ll come with the blue overcoat she wore to see the guys for the first time (including the extra set of blue arms) – what isn’t clear is another item that is obscured. Purse?

Diamond Select Toys shows off new Minimates & specialty items (neon!)


More rolls in from Toy Fair 2010, as Diamond Select Toys is showing off new Ghostbusters Minimates, consisting of the boys in civvies and their commercial lab coats, along with an un-possessed Dana (not a lot of Winston, except in the two back in the background). GBFans.com is identifying them as Wave 4, which given their communications with DST I’ll believe.

Better still is a Slimer night-light, but the must-have item is clearly the neon Ghostbusters logo! No clear shots of their display cards, but the Slimer night-light has a release year of 2011 – for now, we’ll assume the neon sign is as well.

[UPDATE] GBFans has the neon sign as coming out late 2010-2011, with a SRP of $125. Also, the Minimates are due July 2010.

TRU exclusive glow-in-the-dark Slimer bank

Joseph Mays sent in this pick from this local Toys R Us where he found the Slimer piggy bank from Diamond Select Toys, as well as an “exclusive” glow-in-the-dark variant. The exclusive has less detail than the regular – not due to the mold, which is the same, but from the paint job, which is much more muted and smooth due to the glow-in-the-dark paint. Mays also sent in a picture, so you can have a look for yourself. Thanks Joseph!

Some of the favorite figures from the first two waves of Ghostbusters Minimates from DST/Art Asylum, will be repackaged into new 2-packs for sale exclusively through Toys R Us! But, before you start complaining that they’re not new figures, you might want to look again. Louis and Slimer are both getting a bit of an upgrade, which will likely make their two packs highly sought after by collectors.

For those who missed out on the first 2 Ghostbusters Minimates waves, fear not, the boys are back in town and back in the aisles of Toys R Us. Composed of the best 2 packs from Ghostbusters Wave 1 and 2. (with a few tweaks), returning in time to catch you up before the next Ghostbusters’ waves hit stores.

The wave consists of Library Ghost and Egon, Slimed Peter and Slimer (Clear), Ray and Staypuft and Luis Tully with Slimer. As a bonus, the Clear Slimer coming with Slimed Peter now features the floating food deco, intended but unavailable in the previous release. Also due to popular request, Louis Tully now features the Ghostbusters Movie 2 accurate uniform with corrected name tag. Stay tuned as more 2″ full torso block shaped apparitions of your favorite Ghostbusters characters continue to materialize in toy aisles.
