NY Toy Fair 2016: ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot figures & proton pack – VIDEO
Whether you like it or not, the reboot for “Ghostbusters” is on its way later this summer, and Mattel and Matty Collector are gearing up for what they hope to be a big hit with their toys. During the Matty Collector event, press got their first look at the new action figures of the four busters, along with a six-inch version of the Staypuft marshmallow man, a winged ghost monster named Mayhem, and the key villain in the film, Rowan, who looks a heck of a lot like the “no ghost” logo minus the red circle. Looks like we got some more plot info at this event along with a glimpse of the ladies in their jumpsuits and packs.
The following day, we got a tour of the Mattel booth which had a few other items from the film, including the mini-ghosts and most importantly – the new proton pack accessory! Not only do we get to see what the back of the pack looks like on the figures, we also see what kids (and some adults) might be wearing when they start pretending to be GB’s again! No word on whether we will see a classic style pack, but we can only hope that if this line does well enough, perhaps Mattel will consider a line of accessories for the original movie that is not a high-priced adult collectible.
