New ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Toys Arriving This Fall From Hasbro

by Gary Catig

With a new trailer of Ghostbusters: Afterlife dropping recently, Hasbro felt they needed to get into the action and reveal new toys associated with the film. We’ve already seen some figures, primarily of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, but this time around we’ll see the human characters appearing in the movie.

There will be Fright Feature figures that stand 5 inches tall and are comprised of the next generation of Ghostbusters:  Lucky, Trevor, Phoebe, and Podcast.

GHOSTBUSTERS FRIGHT FEATURE FIGURES 

(Ages 4 and Up / Approx. Retail Price: $10.99 / Available: Fall 2021)

“Fright Features are back and better than ever with the GHOSTBUSTERS Fright Feature Figures from Hasbro! With the ghastliest ghouls now, even more spooky, these 5-inch scale figures are accompanied by an interactive ‘Ghost’ figure with fright features, along with proton pack and proton blaster accessories.  Once activated, ghosts stretch, spook, and cause a fright! Kids can imagine the spine-tingling frights faced by Ghostbusters, old and new!

Wave 1 includes the four original Ghostbusters, including Peter, Ray, Egon, and Winston. Wave 2 includes four human characters – Lucky, Trevor, Phoebe, and Podcast – from the 2021 Ghostbusters movie Ghostbusters: Afterlife (each sold separately). Available at most major retailers nationwide. (Each sold separately. Subject to availability.)

No big toy line can’t have action figures without the 6” higher end variety so there will be new additions to the Plasma series.

If you watched the trailer, one of the upgrades made to the ghost traps is to mount them onto a remote control car so Hasbro is making that available too.
