Pop! Movies: Ghostbusters from Funko

"Who you gonna call? Ghosbusters! Ghostbusters is celebrating it's 30th anniversary this year! And we have all of your favorite characters in Pop! form to celebrate!"

Funko presents - in Pop! Vinyls-form - "Dr. Peter Venkman", "Dr. Raymond Stantz", "Dr. Egon Spengler", and "Slimer" (with a translucent base) and the swell 'Stay Puff Marshmallow Man sized 6-inch tall - all available in April! And not forgetting "Winston Zeddmore in the Ecto-1" (OMG OMG OMG *WANT*) to be made available in May. Do check in with your fav retailers for pricing and availability. I would be! I ain't afraid of no ghost! :)

The "Ghostbusters" has become one of the more iconic notions/concepts from the 80s, which has survived until this day, with incarnations of cartoons and action figures, past it's duo movies. And I've always wondered why we don't see that many SD ("Super Deformed") versions of them - be it in "art toy" customs or productions? Perhaps their characteristics were/are more "human" in appearance? Besides the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man getting the "cutesy" treatment, even "Slimer" the ghost doesn't travel as much ….

With the advent of LEGOs and this new series from Funko, here's hoping there'll be more (niche) choices to be had, by both fans and fervent collectors of the Ghostbusters!
