Diamond Select Toys ‘Ghostbusters’ Wave 2 Review


Interested in the second wave of the Ghostbusters figures by Diamond Select Toys, but too lazy to watch every separate video I slaved over for your enjoyment? Well, you are in luck, since I made this convenient review video above that has all three figure reviews in one spot, along with a few other comments about Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler and Dana Barrett.

Check it out to hear my thoughts on this wave and whether or not you should pick it up too!

Diamond Select Ghostbusters Egon Spengler Review

Egon Spengler enters the fray, as Diamond Select has released Harold Ramis’ iconic character from ‘Ghostbusters’ in wave two of their awesome figures.

Wave two completes the set of the four busters, but how does Egon hold up? Is he good enough to buy or should you leave him to rot with the spores, molds, and fungus on the toy store shelves? Check out the review to find out.

Diamond Select ‘Ghostbusters’ Dana Barrett Review

Are you the keymaster?

Diamond Select Toys ‘Ghostbusters’ line continues here in the second wave with a possessed version of Dana Barrett. This lady who sleeps above the covers (four feet above the covers) joins Egon Spengler and Peter Venkman in this line-up, and is the first female figure to join the series.

The last time we saw a version like this was an SDCC exclusive from Mattel, which seriously lacked articulation. While this version improves that, it is not without a few flaws. Check out the video above to see my review of it!

Diamond Select ‘Ghostbusters’ Peter Venkman Review

Bill Murray’s iconic Peter Venkman joins Diamond Select Toys line of ‘Ghostbusters’ figures in this second wave, standing alongside Egon Spengler and Dana Barrett.

The man who planned to turn the GB’s into a franchise that would make them all rich beyond their wildest dreams has had many figure incarnations in the past, so how does this one compare and stack up with the rest of this line?

Check out the video review above to check this figure out!
