New 80’s-style toys based on The real ghostbusters have been revealed by Hasbro. With the following Ghostbusters film that reinvigorates the franchise, we’ve seen so many amazing products released over the past year. Hasbro has been killing it with its Kenner Classics toy line, releasing new Ghostbusters Action figures in the style of original Kenner toys from the ’80s. They do it again with the reveal of The Real Ghostbusters Ecto-1 from Kenner Classics, along with The Real Ghostbusters Ghosts – Bug-Eye and Fearsome Flush.
The Kenner Classics Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is inspired by The real ghostbusters Cartoon, with design and decor influenced by toys from the 80s. Features moving wheels, an opening tailgate, a roof-mounted swivel blaster seat, and a drop-down ghost claw so kids can imagine and capture ghosts with the ghost figure included. Hasbro says the toy is “perfect for those who want to relive the glory days of Saturday morning cartoons and ghostly green juice boxes or for those who want to introduce a new generation of Ghostbusters fans.” .
Meanwhile, Kenner Classics The Real Ghostbusters Ghosts figures bring more ghastly ghouls inspired by the cartoon series. The packaging features a design and decor influenced by toys from the 80s, as in the Ecto-1. Kids can imagine spooky encounters with these toys as it showcases fun action features, including mind-blowing action from Bug-Eye’s Cyclops and rolling action to reveal a fearsome ghost inside Fearsome Flush.
The real ghostbusters was a huge success, spanning seven seasons between 1986 and 1991. It is based on the film series and continues the adventures of paranormal investigators Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore, his secretary Janine Melnitz, and their ghost pet Slimer. The series also featured the iconic theme song by Ray Parker Jr. Most of the popular movie cartoon adaptations didn’t seem to do very well during that time, but The real ghostbusters was a clear exception.
Last year, Hasbro released action figures of the main characters of The real ghostbusters Inspired by classic Kenner toys. Along with the four Ghostbusters, the set also featured Slimer and Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. New toy versions of the Ghostbusters Proton Pack, Proton Blaster, and Ghost Whistle were also produced. For older fans, Hasbro has also released figures from the Ghostbusters Plasma series, with detailed images of the live-action movie characters.
Meanwhile, the Ghostbusters The franchise will also be returning to the big screen soon with the release of Ghostbusters: Another Life. Serving as a sequel to the two original films, the film brings back original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson. If there hadn’t been a pandemic, the film would have been released in theaters this summer, but has since been delayed until November 2021. The film has also brought an influx of interesting products related to its own products, such as GhostbustersThemed twinkies with a blue slime cream filling.
Kenner Classics toys will be sold exclusively at Walmart beginning in April 2021, but pre-orders for them will be available on March 15 at 1:00 p.m. ET at Walmart.com.
