Does this mean I have to half like them?

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...

Should a dog-collar wearing brony really be throwing around "gay" as an insult?

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.

Diamond Select announced RGB figures at SDCC a few days ago.

Howdy Ghostbusters Dudes...

Here's a quick set of pix- first two not mine... Gaga















The figures are interesting, but I think the heads are all a little off, somehow.

I'd like to see them redo Trek. Still my favorite crossover set, after all these years.

Yeesh, these look worse in actual plastic than in those stock pics.
Mikey looks fat, Leo looks like he's got a jug head, Don like he's wearing an oversized wig, and Raph like some creepy hispanic garbageman.
