Continuing to give me excellent reasons to go to Toys R Us, Art Asylum posted pack shots of all the upcoming Best of Ghostbusters Minimate 2-packs, drawn from Series 2.
Do the ghosts ever give up?
Do the guys ever get a vacation?
Of course not! And that’s certainly apparent in our latest collection of the good guys vs. the bad guys 2-pks in Toys R Us!
The Series 2 2-pks consist of:
The TRU exclusive Gooey Ray Stantz & Expoding Stay Puft!
Poor Ray! He just can’t seem to get out of harms way. Well, I suppose that’s what you get when you try to think of the “most harmless thing”…
TRU Exclusive Courtroom Peter Venkman & Washington Square Ghost!
Peter’s snarky comments can’t help him out of this one! Good thing he’s got his Proton-Pack with him!
TRU Exclusive Dr. Peter Venkman & Energized Terror Dog!
Okay, who brought a dog to the party? Peter better watch out cause this one is ENERGIZED! Eep!
ANOTHER TRU exclusive Winston Zeddmore & Zombie Taxi Driver!
Oh Winston, you thought this was just a job to pay the bills! Boy, were you wrong. I suppose tho, who could really forsee NYC being overrun with ghosts?
Remember the 4-pack (5 if you count Slimer) of 6″ Ghostbusters we previously talked about? Mattel posted a picture of the set today on their Facebook page! The snazzy package features all four boys in grey, resplendent in their removable Santa hats.
Surprisingly not included are all the accessories seen at Toy Fair – the set includes a PKE meter and “lab coat”, though it looks a lot like the blue coat Dana wears when she first visits the firehall. Both of these were seen in the Toy Fair picture, but now all the other cool accessories are gone – no spectral analyser, no sniffer, no stethoscope or video camera (with shoulder slung recorder.) Looking at the package, it’s hard to imagine where they’d go anyhow.
Officially called the We’re Ready To Believe You! Box Set (no series number given) the pack sports a San Diego Comic Con logo and Toys R Us Exclusive foil stamp. The only way to interpret this is that the set will initially be made available at SDCC this year, and then sold exclusively through Toys R Us afterwards – stay tuned in case that changes.
From Art Asylum;
Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost?
Then call on “We’re ready to believe you” Ghostbuster Minimates!
The newest Ghostbuster Box Set contains the guys doing their famous TV Commercial!
The Set includes:
Ready to Believe Peter,
Ready to Believe Egon,
Ready to Believe Ray,
And the scared and slightly desperate Dana Barrett!
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!
