For those who lived through the 1980s, it’s a simple fact that The Real Ghostbusters was as much part of the Ghostbusters phenomenon as either of the live-action movies that inspired it — something that Hasbro is ready to help fans relive with a new toy line launching later this year.
Running from 1986-1991, The Real Ghostbusters was an animated spinoff of the original Sony comedy released in 1984, featuring colorful versions of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore and Egon Spengler — not to mention Janine and unexpected ghost sidekick Slimer — in weekly adventures concerning family-friendly hauntings and spooky goings-on around the New York Area and beyond. The series was such a success that it spawned merchandise and a spinoff of its own, including a toy line from Kenner.
Set to debut later this year, Hasbro’s new Ghostbusters Kenner Classics line will feature six figures — Peter, Ray, Winston, Egon, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Slimer — inspired by that Kenner line from the ‘80s. Each of the Ghostbusters come with accessories inspired by the series: a proton pack, proton blaster with stream and an accompanying ghost; Slimer gets some snacks (including a slice of watermelon, because it can’t all be pizza); and the Stay Put Marshmallow Man is just… his regular giant self.
The figures will be available exclusively at Walmart this spring for $14.99, and will be available to pre-order online beginning Saturday at 1 p.m. PT. Uncertain which figure to choose? Look below to see what to expect.
