    That's a bloody terrible HS - looks absolutely nothing like him. Almost as annoying as casting women in the remake (Bit of controversy there:D)

    Most recent thread to post in, but sad to see the death of Michael Gross, the man who designed the ghostbusters logo...... such an iconic design and almost a definitive piece of graphic art

    It's up for pre order now at $399 +shipping & import fees.

    Limited to 1000 pieces.

    The exclusive one comes with a ghost trap.

    I'm not too impressed with it to be honest.

    Don't forget the other 3 Ghostbusters they said they may make, so over £1,200+ for the lot.

    For the price of 3 figures you could get a very good prop replica proton pack with lights & sound.

    It is steep and looking at the promo pics on CDUK, I'd say the HS is OK and a good likeness but still not amazing.

    You just know that Venkman is the only one they will do, I can't see it selling well, it don't look right and then there is the price factor.
