Honestly not a bad review, seeing as how new you are to reviewing figures like these. I enjoyed the review of the figures I haven't gotten a chance to get my hands on, and I agree with your ratings entirely. Only thing I can fault you on is that the Subway Ghost was from Ghostbusters 1 =P

Thanks for the reviews and great pics. I haven't bought the GB mates yet, but after seeing this wave & reading the reviews i may just have to order some.

A nice review all round. Covered the key facts and took some nice pictures. I will add you missed the decal under the Statue of Liberty's dress (shows the four GBs) and you may want to know the four arms are a re-use from DC character Salaak. Also:

* GB2 Egon was released in TRU wave 3
* The upcoming GB2 boxset has everyone in the tan coloured costume, not the dark grey.

Hope to see more reviews soon biggrin.gif

The whole figure seems like a cleverly disguised re-use character, doesn't it? Wasp's Wings, Sandman's Base, Sinestro's Head. . . Does anyone have a picture of the actual character from the film? I don't really remember it myself and it'd be nice to know how accurate DST has been able to make the figure considering it's all recycled parts.

I checked on the GB Wikia after the announcement but there wasn't a page for the ghost.

[edit]

Actually...

Hard to tell from the shot to be honest.

well - the face and arms look pretty spot-on. Although, in the pic of the ghost she looks a bit more like a quadruped kind fo beast than an upright bipedal creature as presented in the toy. Still - pretty impressive for a parts re-use figure.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I've got some more reviews I want to work on and will try to do a better job on the next. Not sure if I'll do older waves as I have all my Minimates grouped by types together and would not be sure which accessories came with who anymore

The Ghostbusters MiniMate Archive would be a good resource for that wink.gif
