New ‘Ghostbusters’ Pop! Vinyl Figures Coming From Funko In May
Ectoplasmic entities have much to fear from the toy world this year. Not only is LEGO introducing a massive new Ghostbusters set sometime in 2014, but Funko is rolling out a full line of 3.75" Pop! Vinyl figures. This May, an initial Ghostbusters lineup of Egon Spengler, Raymond Stantz and Peter Venkman will be busting a Slimer (with a righteous translucent base), plus an extra-tall 6" Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
Winston Zeddemore's absence is pretty conspicuous, but if Funko's Ghostbusters line follows in the footsteps of the Batman '66 Pops, it seems likely he could surface as part of an Ecto-1 set. Of course, he could pop up in a full second wave. After all, if the line is a hit, fans will probably want Pops of Dana Barret, Louis Tully, Janine Melnitz, Gozer and other prominent GB characters.
Fans can preorder Egon, Ray, Peter and Slimer for about $10 online or wait for them to arrive on store shelves for about the same amount. The bigger Stay Puft figure is available for $15.
