Now that Hasbro has the toy license for the Ghostbusters franchise, including the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, they’re making good use of it. We’ve already gotten a glimpse of the first wave of action figures inspired by the original Ghostbusters movie from 1984, but Hasbro is also reaching back to the time Ghostbusters spent animated on Saturday mornings.
First up, this spring will see Hasbro re-releasing the first wave of The Real Ghostbusters action figures that were originally released on shelves by Kenner in 1987.

It’s a good time to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan.

And as Toy Fair 2020 revealed, there are plenty more to come.
Since NECA is starting to run out of characters from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, they’re now turning their attention to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze.

But don’t worry if the sequel doesn’t appeal as much, because there are a couple more figures from the original movie on the way too. Read More »
