A LOOK INSIDE
MATTEL As master toy partner, Mattel’s line of action figures, vehicles, play sets, and role-play toys captures details of the film’s heroes and allows fans to create their own epic adventures. The Electronic Proton Backpack and Blaster gets fans ready to go ghost hunting. Kids can insert the included glow in-the-dark mini figure into the blaster and project its silhouette on the walls to see paranormal activity right before their eyes. The blaster also works with other mini glow-in-the-dark ghost figures, so kids can chase all the spooky specters in the film. Other figures are sold separately. The classic UNO game now features iconic characters from the 2016 Ghostbusters movie. Players race to get rid of all their cards by matching a card in their hand with the current card shown on top of the deck. Customizable cards deliver game-changing moments and help players defeat their opponents.
LEGO Fans can power up the proton packs and bust some ghosts at the two-story, 14-inch-tall Firehouse Headquarters from Lego. The set includes a containment unit, the lab, living quarters, nine minifigures, a Slimer figure, and more. It comes with more than 4,600 pieces in all. The set is designed for fans ages 16 and up.
The Ghostbusters game is a third-person action role-playing game designed for one to four players. As rookie Ghostbusters, players can level up their characters’ gear and abilities by tackling objectives, defeating ghastly creatures, and discovering hidden collectibles. The game is available for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
NKOK offers the RadioControlled Ecto-1, complete with Slimer behind the wheel.
Running Press’ Ghostbusters Collectible Kit includes a mini replica of the ghost-debilitating proton pack and wand. Complete with light and sound features, this gadget allows aspiring Ghostbusters to light ‘em up and blast away. The kit also includes full-color stickers.
