Mattel’s Walter Peck from “Ghostbusters”
April 21, 2010


Manufacturer: Mattel

Release Date: May 17th 2010

Wave/Assortment: Year 1  Exclusive

Packaging: Single Carded

Accessories:  Ghost Containment Unit and trap

Scale: 6"

Sculpted By: The Four Horsemen

Based on actor William Atherton from the movie Ghostbusters


Trap is different than the one that comes with Winston.  The top panels do not open on the Peck trap so it is smaller since it does not have to accommodate the hinges.  The foot pedal from Winston’s trap will plug into the Peck Trap.  Both traps will fit into the containment unit. 

Whether you consider him a villain or simply misunderstood, the original Ghostbusters™ film wouldn’t be the same without one Walter Peck™, EPA administrator. At long last, this perpetual thorn in our heroes’ side is immortalized in a fully-articulated, highly-detailed 6” tall Movie Masters™ figure that comes complete with a Containment Unit!

Fun Fact: Mr. Atherton was also the voice of Dr. Destiny in two Justice League Unlimited episodes.

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
