Hasbro Reveals New Ghostbusters Toys at Toy Fair

During their Toy Fair 2020 presentation, Hasbro revealed a slew of new Ghostbusters products based on both the original film and the upcoming one.

Last August, Sony Pictures announced they’d partnered up with Hasbro as the exclusive creator of Ghostbusters toys, and at this year’s New York Toy Fair, the company showed off what they’ve been working on. There’s plenty for long time Ghostbusters fans to enjoy, as they’ve introduced a nostalgia inducing line of “Kenner” figures set to arrive this Spring:

It’s a (proton) blast from the past with THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS Kenner Classics Figure assortment from Hasbro, inspired by the classic figures from Kenner. With original Kenner deco and card backs influenced by the iconic look from the 80s cartoon series, these retro figures are a must have for any Ghostbusters fan. Each Ghostbuster comes with accessories inspired by the series: a ghost, proton pack, and proton blaster with stream.

I’m really digging the old-school vibes from these, and as a collector, I’m a sucker for retro packaging. If you want something a bit more modern, however, they also revealed a new line of highly detailed 6-inch figures based on the original film. The “Plasma Series” will arrive this Summer with these comprising the first wave:

The premium, collectible Ghostbusters figures that fans been waiting for are here with the GHOSTBUSTERS Plasma Series Figures from Hasbro. Inspired by the original Ghostbusters movies, the Plasma Series Figures features collector grade deco across multiple points of articulation, character-inspired accessories, and photorealistic actor likenesses. Each figure also comes with a buildable ghost component.

Now, if you’re looking to snag something from the new film, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, there’s a handful of cool roleplay based items (and a vehicle) to choose from:
