Now imagine you've seen this stuff but can't talk about it, it's hell.
The "Plasma Series" figures are incredible btw. Can't wait for better photos.
Can we safely infer from the Toy Ark product listings that the blue ghost from the trailer is called "Muncher"?
Yeah, that's Muncher from the trailer. We saw some designer artwork at the presentation a few weeks ago.

Tell me about it. We knew about the Hasbro partnership well before fanfest. Now, we are finally getting to see what they were cooking up all the way back then.

Only slightly disappointed in the lack of rust or more detailed roof rack of Ecto. Plenty of opportunity for custom mods though I guess! The gunner seat door is definitely awesome and looks to have room for at least 4 figures!

Observations:

The original RGB figures misspelled Ray and Winston’s last names as Stanz and Zeddmore, respectively, if memory serves. The Kenner re-releases have them spelled correctly.

The picture that has the boxed Stay Puft, Slimer, and Muncher toys shows that the first 2 have a sticker that says 1984 Classic, while Muncher doesn’t. One could come to the conclusion that Slimer and Stay Puft won’t appear in Afterlife since they’re being slightly segregated. (Edit: Is that a Stay Puft baby on the box art?! Is there one inside him? I can’t tell what the play feature artwork is trying to explain.)

Awesome to see Dana/Zuul and Gozer along with the 4 guys in the Plasma series.

I know what's going on: they're not showing the spoilery toys/sets on purpose (probably asked by Jason). We're just seeing the OGs.

The five inch line are exactly the figures I wanted as a kid! And all the RGB references! And the proton pack!

What a lovely thing to come home to!

I’d argue the Muncher reveal is quite spoilery. However I doubt we see much more than that.

Though I wonder if the role play mods are something that will be featured in the movie.

This explains the chomp out of the stop sign we saw in the leaked set photos.

Muncher appears to eat metal, much like the class 4 feeders from the Extreme Ghostbusters episode "Back in the saddle."

I am so picking up those rereleases of the real ghostbusters figures, do you think they'll rerelease of ecto 1 as well?

I’m digging what I’m assuming is supposed to be a loose recreation of Egon’s Afterlife lab.

I believe the rusty Ecto-1 will be the $1000 one. j/k. I hope...

Now this is merchandising. As for waiting for the black proton packs just spray paint the blue ones!
I'm digging the RGB stuff. But man if the big bad for afterlife is going to be Sam Hain holy shit I'm stoked!

I will NEVER understand why we can't get a 1 off animated movie featuring the original team.

Look at how many of them DC has done. Just a one off fun adventure would be awesome.

A look at the new Ecto-Plasm Containers! Looks like the red stripe is a 59' Caddy fin!

Did anyone else notice that all 4 OGBs in the Plasma Series each have a different red Cyclotron lit up? Maybe corresponding to which pack goes to which?

I did! I thought the cyclotron lights in different positions on different packs was a great touch.

It also looks like the pack straps are black on the prototypes at the show, but they're olive drab in product shots.

Yeah, Hasbro sometimes does great pics for promotion (green straps) and then they don't have that amount of detail. :sigh:

The in-box figures with the green straps might actually be closer to the final product than the ones with the black straps, those might be more of the prototype stage of things.

Looking at the photos (and I believe it is mentioned in a video) it seems the roof top gun is removable.
It's here

but not here

The hose seems to connect into the gun though. Do we know if the gun and the hose are both removable or is it that the Ecto toy on the bottom just doesn't have its blue hose in place?
