Bustin’ 2 Electric Boogaloo: Retro-Action Real Ghostbusters Series 1

Nope, these aren’t even close to being the Kenner figures we all remember.  However, they turned out to be better then I expected.  I’ve previewed/reviewed them over at MTV Geek, and while they’re cool toys, I still hope Mattel will give them the DCUC 6″ treatment eventually. They f’n deserve it!

  1. So Ernie Hudson tried out for the roll of Winston, and Venkman was voiced by Garfield, then Bill Murray voiced Garfield in the movie. This is getting crazy. I typically don’t like mego-styled figures, but these look like a lot of fun. Don’t think that means I’ll be buying any of them, but I can see the appeal that these would have for some.

    • Yeah, it’s funny how much better these turned out than others. I first thought it might be due to the animated nature of the show, but the Venture Bros. Megos sucked hard cock on a Tuesday.

  2. I think these seem nicer because of the accessories. They appear to be a “better value” than other retro-style figures out there.

    Do you know what accessory Peter comes with?

    • Nope, sure don’t. The SDCC version didn’t have anything other than the proton pack. The fact that he’s Venkman is probably enough for most people to snatch him up.

  3. I think these are pretty awesome. I kinda want to pick ’em all up, but I’m not sure if thats really gonna happen. I don’t collect Mego, and its not like Ghostbusters is one of my favorite properties, but I did enjoy the show as a kid, so these might make a nice addition to my collection. If they were $15 a pop, it would be a much easier sell.

    • I’ve still not seen these at TRU myself, but I imagine Peter and Egon will be the only ones disappearing from the pegs.
