Found 3 'hatless' GB2 sets in MN yesterday. 2 of the 3 packs had very sloppy paint, with stray paint on a different GBs. :roll: Didn't see any sets with hats attached at the store. Was also able to use a 20% text coupon to get the set down to $48=tax. 8)

I don't think the hats are attached in any of the sets; they are just stored down by their feet.

Here's my impressions of the set. Holy $%&* does the plastic feel cheap. They feel MUCH cheaper than the MC releases. The trap is packed awful, the handle is bent to the left when taken out.

And why are Ray, Peter, and Egon so freakin' tan? Seriously, they look more like Los Busters de las Fantasmas.

I was thinking about getting the exploding Mr. Stay Puft so I could better explain that :lol: Wrong movie though...

Oh yeah, the hats dont fit either... :twisted:

I am going to have to open my set up and see if mine fit or not.

Any thoughts on the Winston figure being moved to a later date and replaced with Courtroom Peter? I don't mind at all.

I didn't see this mentioned on this board, but the Winston figure is slated to be the second 2011 GB figure released.

A question for those with the TRU 4pack:

Does your Slimer have the left shoulder assembled backwards?

Mine does. :(

Mattel's STELLAR QC comes through again...

:roll:

Toys R Us Big Book of Toys: Ghostbusters 2 Set for $49.99.

That's what I paid after using a coupon, but for those on the fencse, this might be the right time to buy, um, whenever the TRU BBOT goes into effect (Facebook has a preview at the moment).

Both versions of the Mr. Stay Puft Bank will be $19.99.

Bloody Hell, TRDouble! I wish I'd seen that ten minutes ago!

The GB 2 set is now available on ToysRUs.com. Using the $10 off $50 coupon and factoring in shipping, it came out to be just a tad under the cost of buying it in the store. I just ordered mine. Here's hoping I get one with good paint apps.

Ah sweet! Thanks for the info TRDouble. I was already set on getting them and now it'll be a little easier on the wallet.

Took a look at TRU.com and they've got them back on there. You can choose between the set with the hats on or off.

I don't see where you can choose which set you want, but they are already listed at $49.99 online.

Couldn't someone simply open their package and slide the figure tray out, then reposition the Santa hats onto their heads and slide the tray back inside the box if that's how you want to display them in the package?

Personally, I just opened it and threw away the packaging. I collect figures, not cardboard boxes. :)

No, because they are packaged a little differently.

When looking at the box, the busters with the hats has Slimer on the right side (IIRC).

The busters without the hats have Slimer in the middle. And the hats at their feet :P

So, really, if you plan to keep them in the box, or want to make sure the hats fit, try and find the set with the hats already on (which I have not seen yet and if that is how you want to display them MIB). If you plan to open them up anyway, it doesn't matter which set you get.
