The New 2016 Ghostbusters movie with an all-female leading cast is certainly not the 1984 version remade. It is in a class by itself and has spawned a batch of action figures that are now available just in time for the holidays.
All new characters, Jillian Holtzmann, Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, and Patty Tolan, are molded into toys to release the new line of Funko POP Movies: Ghostbusters 2016 Action Figures.
All the characters can be bought individually through websites such as Amazon.com ranging from $6.71 to $8.78. You can also get them in a set of three, which will help you, collect more characters at one go, and you also save some pennies! To boast around your friends of owning all the characters of the new Ghostbusters, you can, without a doubt, buy the set of 7 characters, at $79.25. You can get them in sets of 3, 4, 7 or 8.
Recommended Age Range
People from the ’80s and ’90s are less than amused by the idea of replacing the old and legendary characters from the 1984 Ghostbusters with the new ones in 2016. They might look forward to something fresh and hot off the press with these new characters but children of this generation have the recrudescence of the prodigious Ghostbusters, with new heroes to look up to.
Thumbs Up Details
The portrayal of the epic Ghostbusters into individual toys is in itself a big mark towards the likings. The fact that the legacy is continued in the similar manner (just with new characters) is remarkable too, with the exact design and concept of the toy characters. These 6 inches toy characters are the exact prototypes of the new cast, just that they are a bit cuter.
The resemblance and the details are exactly impounded in the respective toys, including minute details such as the blasters on the back packs and the logo near their shoulders, or details such as sculpting Patty’s hair and her golden earrings. They have a 360 degree twisting movement, which is fun to play with.
You can proudly put these new characters on your toy shelf right next to the old ones, Peter, Ray, Winston and Egon, forming a stouthearted team.
Thumbs Down Details
Surely the new toy characters are intimidating but there are some dislikes with this new line of products too. The only thing which is not liked is the disintegration between the old and new characters. We would like some kind of link between both the lines (regarding the characters).
What About The Value?
They surely are! The legendary Ghostbusters characters being molded into tiny cute vinyl toys are worth the price. The style and appearance of these make you feel the aura tried to create the movie, and there is no doubt about them being famous since the past 30 years!
I absolutely love these two Funko pops – I want to give it a five star review but the Holtzmann character doesn’t stand up. It falls over no matter what. I think one of the feet is a little off or bent. It really is disappointing as all the other Funkos we have stand up nice and stable. I don’t know if this is a manufacturer’s defect or if they are all this way. I LOVE Kevin and how amazing the detail is (leaving out the lenses in his glasses just like the movie.)
There are many online websites such as Amazon.com, ebay, toysrus.com and bigbadtoystore.com. If you would want to check them out yourself before buying, you can visit any store near you.

And In Conclusion…
With the release of these new characters with a line of POP toys, another page has been written in the history of Ghostbusters. This sci-fi flick has done justice to the older one and so have the new toy characters.
