I honestly can't tell if mine is black or navy, it could have been black, but faded.

You're spot on, SB.

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

Yup. Maybe three minutes elapsed between the time I found the listing (which I kept refreshing for) and the time it said "sold out" after I put it in my cart. Slipped right from between my fingers because I forgot I changed my target.com password...

Yeah, it's f****g stupid. It was seconds. I had checked out to the point where it thanked me for my order, but didn't go thru apparently (all of this took me roughly 3 seconds to complete). Also, why would Hasbro not offer this on their Pulse site? You would think for those who subscribe to that premium nonsense would get a sense that Hasbro doesn't really care about the fans? Even though apparently the motto is "Where the fans come first". Naw...

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?
From the website https://hasbropulse.com/pages/hasbro-pulsecon-2020 it says "We’ll begin by celebrating the iconic 1984 film. Tune in for ghostly surprises, classic toy news, and a visit from a very special guest: Ernie Hudson, otherwise known as Winston Zeddemore from Ghostbusters! Get ready to hear him answer your fan questions!"

But was there any "classic toy news"? I don't seem to recall any.

It's my understanding that when they say classic toys they are referring to toys of the classic movie. This description comes from the section for the 1984 movie. Not from the section about the cartoon.

Not gonna lie, pretty bummed about how quickly this sold out. Maybe they will expand the pre-order, if you can sell more why not?

1/18" -- either that or they shouldn't add "Plasma series" to some of these releases and come up with something else.

Yeah, I agree. It should be branded in the Afterlife toyline and not in the Plasma series. I guess this could've been the intention originally but they probably let this one out early because they need some Ghostbusters product on shelves now (because they paid for the retail space and have no movie in theaters)?

Agreed. Seemed like a weird choice to do a replica thrower that was pretty well done then a 1/18th of all sizes of Ecto-1 that nothing fits in.

No doubt they had to change their schedules around because of the delay. Who knows how much merch is sitting in Hasbro's warehouses taking up space and not making money. You could argue they obviously went lite at the Pulse Con and there were white elephants in the room like no mention of the children's line of toys like the Ghost Whistle or it's own version of the new Ecto-1. They definitely are holding back a lot. I'd expect had to hold back in anticipation for Toy Fair next year.

I'd bet Egon's farm that there is a 1/18 line of Plasma Afterlife figures that will be coming closer to the release. Wouldn't be surprised to see them in a two pack form with a kid/adult.

I want figures of the guys...how they are. As in seniors.

I'll buy the hell out them, but I have some doubts they'll get made.

So...I can't say this pulse con blew me a way. A ghost popper...what? You had the 4 guys come out and 2 ghosts...no Ecto-1 for that?...Umm k. A plasma Wrecto-1..ok it fits with the other hot wheels versions of the other 2 cars but....neither of these were in need of a whole online event. The kid RP toys aren't even out currently due to COVID so I really don't see where they're hoping to hype a ghost popper here. For those with kids yeah sure its fun...like giving your kids a new He-man origins toy which is similar but not identical to the one ya had as a kid yourself.

Not looking to hate on the toys they've offered though this wal-mart exclusive BS needs to stop. However I really thought we were gonna see maybe GB2 plasma figures or MAYBE a plasma afterlife ghost? A RGB Ecto-1? I just cannot see why a whole Pulse con was made to feature GB stuff but it's 2 things.
