Mattel Ghostbusters Slime Blower Ray Stantz Action FigureWhile there are figures I went out of my way to buy at full price, Slime Blower Ray Stantz was not one of them. I loved Ghostbusters as a kid - it was funny, it was scary, and three science guys made sure nobody had any monsters under their beds. What's not to love? I had a set of the four main Real Ghostbusters and a couple of odds and ends, but due to me being cheap I didn't run out to grab Mattel's line - and I somewhat regret this. Well, until I found out in mid-2013 that these guys were getting dumped at Big Lots! for $10.00. And then I did one better during a trip to Los Angeles, I found out Mattel's company store had Ray and a few others for $3.99 each. Good or bad, I'll buy pretty much anything in this scale for five bucks - and I got my money's worth. Honestly, I think most Matty figures are probably worth the $20ish. It's just the shipping - another $8 or more - that siphons off the value.

Mattel Ghostbusters Slime Blower Ray Stantz Action FigureRay looks pretty good - this is a Slime Blower Winston body with a Ray head, which is sort of a cop-out and, at the same time, the kind of thing you do to make your budgets work. For a higher-dollar prestige collector line, it's not something buyers appreciate in the slightest and this sort of "head swap" is what put me off Star Trek in the 1990s. Were it a better figure I'd like it more - Ray was packaged not holding the Slime Blower correctly, and after futzing with it I got it more or less holding the gizmo correctly. The second movie isn't a favorite of mine, but I can't deny that the Slime Blower turned out great with lots of painted detail. Lots of hoses, lots of stripes - I got my money's worth here. Ray's head is a decent Dan Aykroyd likeness - while it looks vaguely Nixonian, there's no mistaking it for someone else. It's Ray. As my only movie Ray so far he's pretty good, but the non-removable backpack is sort of a bummer.

Mattel Ghostbusters Slime Blower Ray Stantz Action Figure

Joining Ray is a Cinema Ghost, a nicely freaky purple clear creation with some frosted deco on top. This is, without a doubt, the selling point here. His pink shiny teeth are hard to ignore, as are the six blank white eyes. The ghost has a jointed tail and a couple of joints on each arm, plus it plugs in nicely to the display stand.

Mattel Ghostbusters Slime Blower Ray Stantz Action FigureI would love to see Mattel put out packs of just ghosts - no likeness rights, they're small, and they're really cool. I may go try to grab other figures just to get some more of these ghosts because they're so gosh darned neat. (So far I've got this one, Slimer, and a Librarian Ghost.)
