I would have sh** the bed as a kid if this was a thing back then. In a good way.

I don't know that kids today will care much. "Why are the Ninja Turtles dressed up like those unfunny ladies in that Ghostobliterators movie?"

This is what I was thinking. I would have loved these, but kids today? Probably not as much. I'm thinking today would more likely be the turtles dressed as Marvel characters over GB.

Raph Ironman
Leo Cap America
Don Hulk
Mikey Thor.

C'mon, it's easy Playmates lol.

My vote: Hawkeye.
He's good at what he does, but a tirefire of a person when it comes to anything else.

I... don't know how to feel about these.

If Playmates were smart, they'd be doing these wacky variants in the style of the original toyline. C'mon guys. Revive it. You're clearly marketing these to 30 year olds in the first place.

Someone once made a Ghostbusters custom using Pro Pilot Don as the base & it was perfect. They should've just gone in that direction.

At first these were really disturbing to me. I agree with Powder that they should've gone retro with them. BUT on the positive side, my 4 year old will love these. He recently snagged all my Real GB figures and since I'm missing Ray he uses Leo. Despite my lack of support for modern Playmates, I'll definitely be getting them for him.

Mixing human faces with the turtles was a mistake. Donnie looks like his bay movie counterpart almost. I don't think anyone has ever said they wanted Bill Murray as a Ninja Turtle at least not like this.

Didn't the concept artists use Murray as reference for PD Mikey? (Tom Hanks was Leo, Eastwood as Raphael and Nimoy as Donnie)

Extra creepy.

IndigoErth
07-20-2017, 05:14 PM
I'm both horrified and amused.

Whose weird idea was it to make them look half like the Ghostbusters characters, rather than just dressing them up in the gear..? I just want Turtles in the gear, not the result of the Ghostbusters guys having had a hot night with Venus once back in '97.

If they want to punk out on the paint aps and NOT include painted eyebrows that would be a start and entirely OKAY.

The outfits and boots are adorable thorough, I'll give it that. Maybe a head swap with a regular figure would work. (Unless this is a big figures line.)

They're no joke...there are completed, packaged pics that do not look like protos in the end of the slide show you can view on toynewsi.com.

Also in the pres, Target exclusive.

I bet these are ready to drop at Target come Halloween season and be their offering alongside the Walmart WWE wave 2.

Don is obvs Egon. No other way.
Leo is obvs Ray as Ray was founder and leader.
Mike and Raph...their choices fit for the Nick toon alright but if we wanted to go for the original toon I'd have switched em around since Raph was the more sarcastic one.

I'd have preferred normal turtle heads too. Wonder if we will maybe be able to swap on some other heads easily enough. Maybe from deluxe line Nick heads? Maybe I should grab some of those...hmm...

I honestly would rather just the Ghostbusters have been added to the TMNT line, like they did with Usagi and Savage Dragon. The Turtles-dressed-like-other-characters was cool when I was a kid but these are supposed to be the collector's line, no? While I'm guessing a few older fans would like these, I can't imagine the majority would.

This s**t over Krang and Shredder is baffling.

This. This is what they should've done. I would probably have bought if it was just cartoon Ghostbusters.

In fact come to think of it, I'm surprised no-one (e.g. NECA) has produced cartoon accurate figures of The Real Ghostbusters. I think they would be incredibly popular.

I'll answer my own question...probably a licensing thing...

Raph was way more like a Venkman in the 80's, not so much now, it could have been fitting for him. Mikey would have been Ray. Leo would have been Winston. Donnie makes the most sense as Egon.

These remind me so much of the Star Trek Turtles (more so than the WWE figures). Those figures had face lifts to appear like their character counter part. The fact that these ghostbuster figures will include extra ghost figures reminds me of the Kenner figures from back when. These will be bought.

There HAVE been cartoon accurate RGB figures released within the last decade or so.

Why do they always do these in 6 inch? There are a few I might have gotten if they fit with my other basic figures. I wonder why they didn't reuse the ooze shooter ones. Somebody had a nice ghostbusters custom from one of those.

This set is certainly creative, to say the least.

Having been a fan of both The Real Ghostbusters and TMNT as a kid, this seems like the ultimate dream mash-up. While these figures are neat, I agree with others in that they should have just been turtles in Ghostbusters gear. Maybe it was totally in the hands of the license to determine the final product.

I will grab at least Leo/Stantz, but I would have swooped up the entire set if they had looked like their turtle selves in Ghostbusters gear.

In the mean time I have to get an Ecto-Party Wagon together. The wrestling figures will have to double as the Ghostbusters for now.

Raph/Sting will try to beat the ghosts with his bat, while Undertaker/Don will summon other spirits to take out the ones he can't control. Finn Leo will send those ghosts screaming back to the Netherworld. Mikey's bagpipes will make the ghosts wish they couldn't hear.

I might have to get two Ghostbuster Turtle sets. This interest has been building ever since I started watching the Real Ghostbusters cartoon on Netflix, then I will flip on over to Extreme Ghostbusters on Hulu.

Where did that ghost fish come from that comes with Mikey/Venkman?
