- Ghost Corps unveiled the fantastic photo below on their official Facebook page showing both upcoming Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters (2016) figures, vehicles, and play sets. It is speculated that most, if not all the figures, etc are from Mattel. The Ghostbusters (2016) figures were shown at this year's New York Toy Fair. "We've updated our display cases with new merchandise! Check out Ivan on the official Ghostbusters Snapchat right now for a more in depth look! #Ghostbusters". What's really new is the bottom of the display. It appears Mattel is re-releasing their former Matty Collector Ghostbusters figures in all new "classic" packaging. Except for a certain marshmallow ghost. Which basically hasn't been packaged that way since Kenner produced and sold a The Real Ghostbusters version 30 years ago. According to Ghost Corps, the classic figures come with parts to build a "no ghost" logo!
