Playmobil Ghostbusters 9223 Venkman and Terror Dogs Action Figure SetOfficially the set is named Venkman and Terror Dogs, weirdly leaving out Dana/Zuul on the naming. Even the German name is just "Venkman und Terror Dogs." The creatures are completely new, while the figures make use of many existing parts with new deco. It's a decent deal for the box contents.

Venkman - the only Venkman, oddly, in a line with two Ray Stantz and two Egon Spenglers and two Janine Melnitzes - comes slimed. Dana comes in her "Zuul" possessed form, sadly no normal Dana was made available. Although I guess I could probably eventually cobble one together out of blind bag parts, it would seem there could still be room for a couple of more Ghostbusters sets with regular versions of Peter and Dana. And maybe another ghost or two. Perhaps a glowing or clear Slimer.

At this time, with only one Peter Venkman figure, this set is another must-buy. I assume for some the rest of this set is also compelling, but the post-slimer Sedgewick Hotel edition of Peter is a pretty iconic choice. This almost makes me wish the fancy hotel was part of this line as it could be reused with other themes, but I digress. The figure shares the same basic body template as the other figures, with different belt gear and a distinctive name tag. The hair is an existing hair piece, which is interesting - for Funko's upsized Playmobil line, they had a new hair design. And a different body design. And different legs and arm pieces. It's completely different, not merely larger.

Peter is the standard just-under-3-inches tall with 6 points of articulation and a clip-on proton pack which fits together pretty much perfectly. A ghost trap is also included and assembles quickly and easily. A PKE Meter was also included - I'm assuming it may have been gang-molded with the trap - meaning this set gets you all of the key gear from the first movie.

Dana comes in a dress with bare feet and no accessories. Her lips are red, her eyes are dark and ghoulish, and her hair is more restrained than the elevated 1980s halo we saw in the movie. The wrapping of her dress is nicely decorated and is obviously easily reused to make other figures. She also has six points of articulation and is the source of one of the line's few weak spots. Her exposed shoulder is painted flesh color, and mine was a little rough. Normally this isn't a problem on Playmobil toys.

Joining our movie's romantic leads are a pair of large demon dogs. Both look more or less perfect, with 5 joints each plus horns you plug in place on their heads. Each has molded-in red eyes and an articulated, opening jaw so they can appear in your refrigerator and growl "Zuuuuuul" until your Peter figure shows up to look at the awkwardly product-placed can of Coca-Cola. The texture is good, the size is smaller than I'd have imagined, but you get two of them and they're of a typically sturdy Playmobil feel. The horns stay in tightly, yet can be removed if you get a grip on them. Each can stand easily on four legs with long front arms and a decent texture for each creature.

I'm pretty amazed that Playmobil brought most of the key creatures from this movie series to life in the first (and perhaps only) wave. The stop-motion dog puppets are a thing people never forget, and in the era of high-def home video become unforgettable for other reasons entirely. For $13, the boxed set of key characters and otherworldly canines works out to about $3.25 a whack - a bargain. While it would have been awesome to get them in the context of a playset or a more complete scene play pattern, this is still pretty good. Sure, slimed Peter and Zuul never shared a scene but at least all of these items exist.
