I've been skipping the actor likeness figures thus far, but I'm seriously thinking about trying to get this one. All four figures for $20--including Venkman and Egon unslimed, for the first time every in the line--and I don't have to fight the Mattel server being crashed by He-Man fans (Whichever moron decided to release the new He-Man stuff and the Ghostbusters stuff the same day should be fired, if not shot)

Sure, there's already been some pantlegger bitching, but they're never happy, right?

I've finally seen this set. Of course, I didn't have enough money at the time, but I've seen it.

If it's still there next week, it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

I now have this set. A little Harold Ramis is sitting by the computer as I type this.

I haven't bought a Ghostbusters action figure in thirteen years. It felt good.

It's the funniest damn thing.

My four year old niece came over, and saw the figures I'd set up. She had no idea what they were (I guess I need to have a talk with my brother about her education on the classics :lol: ) and asked a lot of questions. "What are their names?" etc etc.

When I let her touch them, she immediately had Slimer attack Venkman. I about lost it laughing so hard. It's like she somehow just knew...

I still can't rave enough about this set. It's awesome. The guys are all in the same outfit, none of them are slimed, and I didn't have to fight He-Man fans to get it.

Still, here's a hint, Mattel: I don't plan to buy any more of this line until you give us a Janine Melnitz for it. I don't sprocking care about Walter Peck, the Ghostbusters in court clothes or lab coats, and I certainly don't sprocking care about Louis Tully. But if you make a Janine, I will be there battling your server with the He-Man fans to get it.

And a guy on GBFans named Derrico 13 has made a couple of awesome customizations to the set I wish I had:
