#Ghostbusters Series 6 kicks off the Firehouse Diorama Build-A-Playset from @CollectDST !
February 23, 2018

This week, Ghostbusters Select Series 6 ships to comic and specialty stores, and it marks a new era of Ghostbusters products from Diamond Select Toys. After completing the rooftop diorama with Series 1-5, all of which were based on the original film, Series 6 is based on Ghostbusters 2, and includes the first pieces of the firehouse doors!

“We’re Back” Ray Stanz, Geared Up Louis Tully and Vigo the Carpathian launch the Ghostbusters 2 line, with exclusive diorama pieces in Select packaging at comic shops and specialty stores. Non-diorama versions are at Toys”R”Us in thinner packaging, and both include accessories and interchangeable parts.

 

Ray and Louis each come with a proton pack, walkie talkie, ghost trap, alternate hands and proton stream. Ray, in his grey jumpsuit, comes with additional gloved hands and a removable Santa hat, as seen in Ghostbusters 2. The Select versions of Ray and Louis each come with a front door of the firehouse, while the Select version of Vigo the Carpathian comes with the sign from Ghostbusters 2, as well as a corner segment of the building.

Pre-orders are open for Series 7, with “We’re Back” Egon Spengler in grey, Slime Blower Winston Zeddemore and museum employee Janosz Poha. Janosz will be exclusively available at comic shops and specialty stores, in Select packaging, with Oscar, a lenticular disappearing Vigo painting, and a pair of baby-holding hands for Vigo. Instead of Janosz, Toys”R”Us will get a translucent Terror Dog with two sets of horns. They should ship this summer.

Series 8 just opened for pre-orders with “We’re Back” Peter Venkman, “We’re Back” Winston and Slime Blower Ray, all of whom should arrive this fall.

Just unveiled at the New York Toy Fair, Series 9 and 10 of the Ghostbusters line will feature the Real Ghostbusters, from the 1980s cartoon of the same name. Egon, Winston and Slimer star in Series 9, with all new heads and gear for Egon and Winston, and new faces (and a bus driver hat) for Slimer. Series 10 will feature Peter, Ray and a fully articulated 9-inch Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Each will come with a piece of the firehouse diorama at comic shops and specialty stores, and they will be solicited for pre-orders later this year, for a winter release.

 

Track down Series 1-6 at your local comic shop, or order from your favorite online retailer!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
