The Plasma Series may officially be gone from store shelves, but the Ghostbusters are springing right back into action with a new toyline. This time the Boys in Gray are ready to duke it out with pesky poltergeists as 8″ tall Mego action figures!
Mego Corporation has teamed up with Hasbro to produce four figures based on the original Ghostbusters from the legendary 1984 film. Ray, Egon, Venkman, and Winston are all accounted for. Each Ghostbuster comes with a proton pack, neutrona wand, ghost trap, and individually named jumpsuit. Ray will come with his ecto goggles, and one of the busters, probably Egon, will have the PKE meter.
The Ghostbusters will come together as a four-pack for $69.99 and can be pre-ordered from Hasbro Pulse. The expected shipping date is 11/01/2022.
We’ve crossed streams with Mego Corporation, creators of a classic action figure style featuring soft goods costume pieces, to bring these classic Ghostbusters characters into the fun, Mego style for the first time ever, with the same premium details Ghostbusters fans are looking to trap! Featuring detailed head sculpts for realistic likenesses and movie-inspired accessories, including 4 Proton Packs with Neutrona Wands, 4 Ghost Traps, a P.K.E. Meter, and even Ray Stantz’s iconic Ecto Goggles, this Hasbro Pulse x Mego Ghostbusters 4-pack is coming to save the world!
We’d previously covered that Topps was the new exclusive home for Mego figures. It looks like that isn’t true. Regardless, the Ghostbusters are a welcome addition to the long-running toy line. The additional detail to the packs and accessories was unexpected. Typically, Mego figures forgo details and such, but here even the ALICE pack is included on the proton pack.
