Funko Ghostbusters NYCC Pops Exclusive

funkonyccslimeecto1pop

The week of October 9, 2014 the Javits Center is hosting New York Comic Con. Per usual there will be con exclusives. One of them from Funko is a variant of their Egon Spengler Movie Pop! and ECTO-1 Pop! that comes with Winston Zeddemore. As can be seen the NYCC Ghostbusters Pop! has Pop! Egon and Pop! ECTO-1 slimed in places. The artwork also appears different from the standard ECTO-1/Winston Pop!

What seems unusual is that unless we’re talking about Ghostbusters II,™ the character of Egon Spengler isn’t normally the one who gets slimed. Peter and Ray, for sure. This “combo” Pop! surely is unique. It’s possible Funko in a way wanted to honor Harold Ramis, who of course perfectly played Dr. Egon Spengler in both Ghostbusters™ and Ghostbusters II.™ Either that or someone at Funko wanted to do something different.

After all Funko had already done the SDCC slimed Pop! Peter Venkman with Pop! Slimer. Along with the SDCC “marshmallow covered” Pop! Ghostbusters. If the Pop! ECTO-1 was always going to be part of the NYCC exclusives, I would have done a marshmallow (different white or use a slightly dark outline) covered ECTO-1 and include a marshmallow covered Pop! Ray Stantz.

What do you think of Funko’s decision for a slimed Egon and Ecto-1?

SDCC: Ghostbusters Q-Pop Figures

gbqmxfigs

In February QMX announced Ghostbusters Q-Pop figures. For New York Toy Fair physical figures weren’t yet available, only 3D artwork. At San Diego Comic Con QMX had all 4 Q-Pop Ghostbusters on display. I didn’t really know what to make of these figures then. They still kinda look kid versions of the Ghostbusters or what they could look if their was a new animated series.

I’ve still never seen a Q-Pop figure in person, for Ghostbusters these seem to just about perfectly capture what Ghostbusters is and the personalities of each character. QMX even made Slimer, without really having to make him. I just noticed a tiny Stay-Puft marshmallow man with Ray, making these a little more perfect.

We don’t know yet how they’ll be packaged, pricing, or release dates. Hopefully if they do well, QMX will make more figures. Janine from Ghostbusters anyone?

Mattel Releases Preview Images of 1:18 Scale ECTO-1 With Figures

This past February I posted about Mattel/Hot Wheel’s 30th Anniversary ECTO-1 with figures. Which was barely close up and the item was in a case. Now Mattel has released some detailed pictures of what 1:18 ECTO-1 and especially these Ghostbusters figures will look like.

If Matty Collector, Mattel’s adult collector brand had never made more detailed 6 and 12 inch Ghostbusters figures within the last 5 years, these are passable for possibly static figures that are meant for display purposes. If these are the final production figures and they’re being compared to the stand alone figures, its easy to nitpick. Does anyone else feel like these could be knock offs of the $22/25 USD figures?
