Factory Entertainment filmed a 29 second video (probably using their fruity or robot phone) at New York Toy Fair. Previously only pictures surfaced of the Ghostbusters Shakems and they were behind the more prominent Stay-Puft and Slimer Shakems. Thanks to the video we now know both Peter and Ray do more then “shake.” Pressing a button will play at least two lines of dialogues the characters said in Ghostbusters. Unlike the Matty Collector Retro-Action Citizen Ghost Peter Venkmans, the dialogue is from the actual actors, not someone doing an impression.
Originally because of Matty Collector’s 6″ versions, I wasn’t initially sold on the idea of more of the same type of GB “figures,” (and not all 4 that we know of) that have some motion and have a base. The fact they can “speak” makes them different. I know the novelty of it can wear off as how often are you really going to play the dialogue? The guys aren’t a must own, it will depend on the price too.
What do you think of the Ghostbusters Shakems?
Shipping will most likely be in April or May like the other Shakems.
