    Mattel - Ghostbusters


    Sony Pictures Consumer Products and Mattel, Inc. announced today the development of a new collectible line of toys based on the world’s favorite poltergeist fighting team, the Ghostbusters, including an extensive cast of ghosts and ghostbusters – celebrating the 25th anniversary of the frightfully funny classic film “Ghostbusters.”
    Mattel’s “Ghostbusters” collectible line debuts with 12-inch figures in June 2009, and will be available exclusively at MattyCollector.com. Each figure will feature window box packaging and include authentic Ghostbuster equipment unique to each character. For the first time, Mattel’s line will include talent likeness of Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman and Winston Zeddemore. Select prototype figures will be on display February 6-8 at New York Comic Con and February 15 at Mattel’s New York Toy Fair Collector Preview Night (by invitation only).

    ”We have assembled a quality group of licensing partners to support and celebrate the anniversary for one of Columbia Pictures' most cherished properties. Mattel’s line-up of collector toys is the perfect complement to what will be a great selection of 25th anniversary product,” said Juli Boylan, Senior Vice President, Sony Pictures Consumer Products Worldwide.

    “Ghostbusters” collectors can also look forward to 6-inch figures, with one debuting at San Diego Comic Con in July 2009. Sculpted by Four Horsemen Studios, the team currently working on Mattel’s popular DC Universe™ Classics and Masters of the Universe® Classics collectible lines, the 6-inch line will come complete with authentic “Ghostbusters” equipment and ghost.

    “There haven’t been many comedic blockbusters over the past quarter century as memorable and loved as ‘Ghostbusters,’” said Tim Kilpin, GM for Boys, Girls & Games, Mattel, Inc. “We are honored to participate in the celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary by creating the most extensive line of ‘Ghostbusters’ collectibles ever.”

    Mattel will also create characters and ghosts from the classic animated series, “The Real Ghostbusters,” to go along with the classic “Ghostbusters” film.




    I was kind of hoping it would have stayed in the hands of Neca and the fact that it will be a MattyCollector.com exclusive where you'll end up paying 28.00 per figure after shipping is just uncool.
    On the other hand, I guess Murray finally signed his likeness rights.

    I was excited until I saw the Mattycollector exclusive bit.

    That's both the 12" and 6" lines presumably?

    Yeah, well said. At least you guys can get DCUC in stores, down here in AUS that line was totally ignored by retailers.

    Above anything else though, I'd love to see them do a detailed 3.75" scale "Ecto-1" - that's the name of their old car or 'mobile' isn't it?

    A 3.75" line would be awesome...

    This is awesome news. I've always wished that somebody would do toys based on the actual actors in the films. Hopefully they're not too expensive. Can't wait to see 'em!

    Better to see them as online exclusives then to not see them at all is the way I look at it.

    Yes and no.

    I look at the Indy waves that were shown online and then cancelled. Some people, like myself, would have rathered Hasbro did not show those waves; which basically showed us what we would never have. Here's the same thing - if Matty botches this up, I would wish they wouldn't have tried in the first place.

    Though, right now, I'm very interested in a Ghostbusters line - preferably the 6"ers.

    Hmmm I wonder how the 12 inch figures will be like.

    Hopefully they wont look like over priced dolls like DC Direct.
