Huh.

That's funny... I thought the GB line was pretty much dead now with the cancellation of the subscription and the relegation of Dana as a SDCC exclusive.

Unless the extent of their coverage will be simply to say "Hey, go buy the SDCC exclusive Dana as Zuul over there in our booth!" :roll:

Well, there is still one more figure (at the very least) plus whatever role-play item they're offering this fall.

Couldn't care less about their role-play items, but I thought it was all but confirmed that the final figure would be another Vigo with the alternate demon head. Pretty lame for a final figure, but wasn't the headsculpt leaked online a few months back? Considering the "special thank you" to fans ended up being that lackluster Slimer variant, I'm not getting my hopes up for any more surprises to wow us with this line.

Vigo hasn't been confirmed, just a leaked pic of a test shot with the demon head. I'm sure that the head was probably tooled at the same time as the regular head considering how long ago that pic showed up. I wouldn't be surprised if it was Vigo but we just don't know yet... Who knows?... Maybe it's Janos with that extra Vigo head as a pack-in.

I expect a Haiku announcement about Ghostbusters:

Stay Puff is yellow
Dana can not turn her head
Slimer is en route

anyone else got one?

Man, talk about adding insult to injury if they give us Janos instead of Gozer as the final figure in this line. :(

Well at least we will have both Scoleri brothers! I'm also pumped for the goggles but I was really hoping to see some movement towards a full pack.

I have to see the goggles! They sound neat, but then I think about my PKE Meter, sitting there in the box on the floor and realize that I probably don't need them. That's why I did not pick up the Trap. But the goggles sync with the PKE Meter? That's intriguing too!

Courtoom Ray is definitely a much better final figure than a 2nd Vigo with alternate head.

god. damn. it. really?

so, is this the final gb movie masters figure? it says more movie items to follw next year, or something to that effect. does that mean they'll be randomly releasing a figure here and there? does that mean it's still possible to get gozer, plainclothes winston, janine and the terror dogs? i guess now they gotta put out a courtroom egon with a pot of purple slime too, huh?

Where did it say there's more coming next year? I assumed this was the final one ever.
