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.
Figures.com took new pictures of Factory Entertainment‘s upcoming Ghostbusters Shakems. Pictures from New York Toy Fair showed Mr. Stay-Puft, Slimer, a variant angry Stay-Puft head, which will be included, and their boxes.
I felt like I also saw pictures of the actual Ghostbusters Shakems too which were being worked on within the last year. If I find out new information about them, I can provide an update.
Factory Entertainment, a Ghostbusters licensee has been working on Ghostbusters Shakems which seem to be a better take on the bobble head concept. Which will include at least a couple of Ghostbusters, Stay-Puft, and Slimer. The concentration appears to be on both Stay-Puft and Slimer. Today Factory Entertainment is showing new pictures of both the Stay-Puft and Slimer Shakems.
The exact release date is TBD. Some retail sites are listing either April or May 2014 with a suggested retail price around $50 USD.
