According to this eBay seller (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Unreleased-New ... Sw40ZemG5K) the Plasma Series figures have been delayed until September 2020 :sigh:

Kinda pricey just to be the cool kid for a few months. I think I'd rather spend less money and eBay the mezco ones. Not a fan of the cloth uniforms, though ive heard look better in person, I think their face sculpts are better and packs that light up.

There's been a few reviews of the Plasma Series figures from those who got them. I can't say I'm all that excited for the figures. The RGB ones? Yes, just to have them in packages in boxes but the thrill of getting them again. More prop related things like the Spengler wand or maybe a new PKE is what I'm hoping for.

If they do spare darts for the Ghost Popper, I’ll snap those up, but not sure I really need a fourth one!

This Kevin guy is a pro, he should've been the main host

Initially when Jason pulled the plasma ecto out I was super geeked, but up close... I think there will be a more detailed one down the road...

edit: except if you have the plasma figures already, then it's for sure a must buy

Oh god, again. Go back to Kevin.
Looks like that Ecto-1 might fit the 6" figures.

Holy shit... was that it? An Ecto-1 and a nerf gun?

We got the Ghost Popper and an Ecto 1 I probably don't want because a better one will come around.
That's it. Was hoping at least some more toys or Proton Pack.

Liked thepart wherethey talked about the old toys, though. I had some hope they would show some updates versions of those.

I can see why they went for the Ghost Popper, though it wouldn't have been on my top-5 of things I'd have chosen to re-release.

I gotta say the way they kept talking about the Fright Features figures I was almost sure that was going to be next...not the Ghost Popper. For the life of me I don't recall anyone clamoring for that to come back.

The Ecto though...I gotta get me one of those.

I swear I had read before that the Spirit packs were scaled down because only Anovos had the rights to make a 1:1 pack. I really don't see a full blown pack coming...

Also, just once I'd like to hear interviewers ask Ernie interesting questions. Dude went from being in the Marines to the Yale School of Drama. He's got to have more interesting things to talk about than just repeating the "steady paycheck" line in the face of repetitive questions.

I'm excited for the ghost popper because it was one of those toys that became a general use toy. It was a portable canon, a star trek phaser rifle, a ghost vacuum, and it even launched force fields.

My only disappointment with the panel is that it was scheduled from 1:50 pm to 3:00pm but it went from 2:00pm to 2:50pm. I can appreciate a late start but also an early end? That was a bummer. Could they really have run 20 minutes fast or was there something they were not prepared to present? Maybe a guest dropped out?

In case people want a look, here's a screenshot (I recorded most of the presentation).

Personally, I expected the Kenner Proton Pack. At the very least... the Ghost Zapper. But perhaps they're saving some of the cards up their sleeve since the time to the film's release has changed so much. Maybe those will come later down the line.

You're spot on, SB.

Bill, the designer co-hosting the panel, referenced to them having made some color changes on the final product.

Hey Kingpin, should some of these posts get moved to a merch board? I don't want to take us off topic. I had just hoped we would get a spoiler from that presentation.
