During the internet age ghostheads have been making fan made versions which can encompass more then the films and the original RPG books. What can be included is unnaturally personal preference. Like this one (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 26, 2015) from Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante. His version of Tobin’s clocks in at 496 pages!
With the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game during Ghostbusters 25th anniversary Prima Games published a thorough game book which contains a Tobin’s Spirit Guide section.
While people with notable connections have tried to get a license to create such an official labor of love, it wasn’t in Spate’s Catalog. Or so it seemed.
Hollywood Collectibles Group who make detailed, high end movie and television collectibles is a Ghostbusters licensee. Prior to SDCC HCG had teased a Venkman figure. At SDCC Hollywood Collectibles Group had the first of hopefully more Ghostbusters statues on display.
Toy Ark was in attendance to take photos. Let’s take a look at a 1/4 scale Peter Venkman.
Originally the third figure was up in the air as figures releases can depend on licensee approval. DST’s own Zach Oats thought the third figure could be Dana as Gatekeeper.
New Ghostbusters Selects for series 2 (and beyond) have been produced and are also being shown to SDCC attendees. Thanks to Toy News International for taking and sharing pictures. Let’s check them out!
I’ve been talking about Diamond Select Toys upcoming 7″ Ghostbusters figures since (GB Inc) New York Toy Fair. With additional information added to Ghostbusters Firehouse.
DST officially made the announcement on April 21 about Series 1 and beyond. We most likely knew Ray and Winston would be part of the first figures, the third figure (and the remaining line up) depended on approval. The third figure, “check on the little guy,” Louis Tully as Vinz Clortho!
DST Zach Oats provides more information about Ghostbusters Selects.

Although I could, sorta. (GB Inc)
Diamond Select Toys, a long time business associate having a 7″ Ghostbusters figure line is a big and exciting deal. We’ve written multiple blog posts (GB Inc) about the upcoming figure line. Since New York Toy Fair, Zach Oats, who works for DST has been providing more details on Ghostbusters Selects.
Although, most if not all of Underground Toys Ghostbusters merchandise has been available (we’re still looking for some of these products ourselves) for a good while, UT was at this years New York Toy Fair displaying their Ghostbusters goodness.
We had shared via our social media Marshmallow Fun‘s New York Toy Fair booth set up. As most, if not all of their Ghostbusters Marshmallow Shooter products are currently available to buy, we weren’t going to write more about it.
Then we saw this closer pic of the ‘shooting gallery’ taken by NYC Ghostbusters and changed our minds. We know that 100ft target isn’t available for sale, and yeah most fans don’t have the room for one of that size. Its still pretty cool. Stay-Puft, Slimer, shadowy Ghostbusters busting, and melting marshmallow images!
After the break, Marshmallow Fun’s Ghostbusters/Marshmallows product line up. (more…)
When we originally wrote about DST Ghosts In Glowing Slime we did notice the small figures practically beside it. It did remind us of something familiar from childhood. Can’t blame us (or you can) for not realizing a toy company would basically make Ghostbusters army men.
The New York City Ghostbusters were also at New York Toy Fair. Where they took more new Ghostbusters merchandise photos. And as we and Ecto-Containment have done in recent years, written multi-part blog posts about the products.
When we didn’t know about that, we reached out through Twitter to ask Diamond Select Toys for additional information about whether their will be an Egon and Peter Ghostbusters Select.
