Diamond Select Toys are moving their already impressive Ghostbusters Select toyline forward in a big way with Ghostbusters Select Series 6 - 10, featuring action figures based on the 1989 Ghostbusters II film and The Real Ghostbusters television series. Ghostbusters collectible action figures designed and produced by Diamond Select Toys are often purchased two or more at a time with most remaining mint in box. Opening one of each allows you to assemble spectacular and iconic dioramas piece by piece with each Ghostbusters Select Series action figure.
Ghostbusters Select Series 1 - 5
Ghostbusters Select Series 9 - 10
The Diamond Select Toys that come with the Ghostbusters Firehouse are available exclusively at Comic Book Shops and other Diamond Select retailers, unless you buy them on eBay or other websites.
Toys-R-Us will be offering an exclusive version of each figure without a collectable diorama piece. Zach Oat, Marketing Supervisor for Diamond Select Toys, confirmed that Diamond Select Ghostbusters Series 6 - 10 action figures will retail at comic book stores for $24.99 and the Toys-R-Us exclusives will retail at $14.99 - $17.99. Listen to the full interview with Diamond Select Toys on episode #408 of the Ghostbusters Interdimensional Crossrip.
Ghostbusters Select Series 6 will bring the line forward, featuring Ghostbusters II action figures with collectable Ghostbusters HQ Firehouse diorama door pieces. The next wave of figures begin with Series 6 We're Back Ray Stanz, Geared Up Louis Tully, and Vigo the Carpathian.
Series 7 and 8 will also focus on Ghostbusters II with We're Back Egon Spengler in grey, Slime Blower Winston Zeddemore, and Dr. Janosz Poha will make up the Series 7 figure set. Series 8 will follow with We're Back Peter Venkman, We're Back Winston, and Slime Blower Ray. Featured exclusively in comic shops Dr. Janosz Poha's Baby Oscar variant with lenticular disappearing Vigo Painting and a pair of baby-holding hands for Vigo will be available in the summer.
If that wasn't exciting enough, the last two sets of collectable Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ Diorama pieces will feature the iconic Real Ghostbusters television show brought to life like only Diamond Select Toys can. Ghostbusters Select Series 9 includes Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore, and Slimer. Series 10 will bring Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and a fully-articulated 9" StayPuft Marshmallow Man.
When you collect Ghostbusters Select Series 6 - 10 and assemble the Ghostbusters Firehouse diorama, it will feature signs for both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. With two legendary collectable dioramas straight out of the films, the possibilities are limitless! Imagine collecting all of the Ghostbusters, including Abby Yates, Erin Gilbert, Patty Tolan and Jillian Holtzmann, and lining them alongside the rest of your Ghostbusters collection in front of your fully assembled Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ diorama Ghostbusters 101 style! The Real Ghostbusters ghosts, including the Boogieman, Samhain and The Sandman, would also make fans of the animated series drool as there were never official figures made for these distinct and memorable characters many fans have grown up with -- both on ABC and now on Netflix. There is also a world of possibility in a future collectable diorama. During his interview featured in episode #408 of the Ghostbusters Interdimensional Crossrip, Zach Oat mentioned that the future of the Ghostbusters line depends on sales and fan support.
