Sadly I think the only new GB reveal will be the proton pack or some other prop replica. No new 6" figures. :(

A proton pack replica would be a dream come true! I'm just scared of the price on something like that.

Still be cheaper than a custom made prop replica, yeah? We'll have to see if/when the time comes!

However-- look on how much flack the hoverboard got (and deserved)-- a pseudo close as we can kind of do- prop replica seems like a waste of effort.

looks like the proton pack - or at least the positron glider - is the "big surprise." you know, that's actually not a bad idea. if they broke the pack and an attachable glider into separate packs, it would make each cheaper, so if somebody only wanted one they could get only one or the other, and free up some budget for detail maybe. I'd pay $150 each for the two components separately done well before i'd pay $250 for a flimsy backpack and a noise-making glow-stick.

For that kind of money, I'd expect the thing to be able to actually trap ghosts.

yeah, I wouldn't really buy any of it, i'm just saying, to me it seems like a better marketing deal. I buy muppet prop replicas and that's all the prop replicas I buy.

Looks like you guys have a chance at a proper 6 inch scaled Ecto-1. Expensive, though. :?

yikes, VERY expensive. WTF expensive.

At that price, it better hold all 4 figures, with backpacks stored on the pull out tray in the back, and then some...

Check the web. I've been on so many different toy sites this morning that I couldn't tell you. Toy News International had a semi-decent pick of it, I believe.
