This version of Ray has me on the ropes, so check out what I like and didn’t like in this video review.

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!
