Playmobil Ghostbusters 9224 Spengler and Ghost Action Figure SetBecause Playmobil split up the team, this Spengler and Ghost set is a pretty essential set - it's the only version of Egon in his uniform. He comes in his lab gear in the firehouse, but that's not good enough. You need this one. The set has two full figures, a figural accessory, and some other gear for eight bucks. As price per piece goes, it's a pretty good deal as Playmobil goes.

Egon is in a clean version of his uniform. The ghost is in a decaying suit with glow-in-the-dark bits that are surprisingly bright. The smokey specter also glows.

You're buying this set for Egon - it's also the cheapest set in the line, and the cheapest way to get a proton pack. The figure has cargo pants and boots, plus the fantastical rockabilly-ish hair we've previously seen on vampires and other creatures of the night. It works here, being sort of a cross between his look in the movies and The Real Ghostbusters cartoons. He has the "no ghost" and elbow pads on his arms, plus painted pockets near sculpted pockets. There are lots of pockets.

The ghost is pretty cool, and just seeing it doesn't ring bells from the movie I must have watched 50 times as a kid. I remember the cabbie ghost, but not a decaying top-hat ghost with a mustache. I was surprised that the blue clear plastic glows a very bright green, particularly with all of the painted bits and opaque coats over the body. The various bones with stripes are creepy and cool, with an eerie ghostly face with bluish white hair. I don't have other figures like this. There aren't other figures like this.

The other ghost is an old piece of pliant glow-in-the-dark plastic which has been appearing in sets since 1995, and as I don't have all versions but they all seem glow-in-the-dark, or green. Previous versions came with a lamp, as it was a magic genie, but here it's a ghost and plugs right in to the open trap. Had the trap included a pole, you could have Slimer "sucked in" too, but they didn't, so you can't.

I especially love the hardware - this set has it all! Egon's PKE Meter has no moving parts, but looks cool. The Proton Pack and Neutrino Wand fit together perfectly, with an optional energy stream that's light enough that it won't cause him to tip over. The ghost trap opens and has the foot pedal, but right now the glowing ghost included is the only one that can be mounted in the trap's hole. I'd love to say "this may change," but I doubt it. A standard walkie talkie that's been around since at least 1996 was also included, as is a cane for the ghost. And a hat. You can't leave home without a hat.

Individual figures are usually around $3-$4, so if you like these figures the amount of stuff you get in the box is a decent deal for the asking price. The deco on Egon is really good, and the ghost may be appealing regardless of your interest in the movie - I've certainly not seen this color of glowing plastic before. While not as sexy or exciting as the larger sets, it's essential. And it has ghosts. Get it.
