Playmobil The Real Ghostbusters 9387 Zeddemore with Aqua Scooter Action Figure SetI was late to order Zeddemore with Aqua Scooter. I saw it and fell in love - and then neglected to order them. As a kid, I was more or less forced to sell off some of my old The Real Ghostbusters stuff - specifically the Firehouse - because of Playmobil. It's complicated. But now I'm getting Kenner-style toys as Playmobil... which works fine for me.

Winston is in the baby blue uniform we saw in the old cartoon and the first Kenner figure. The ghost is an exclusive deco octopus, with blue eyes and color-change skin. The little Aqua Scooter is a gem, inspired by old Kenner "mini-rigs" vehicles invented by the toymaker and not necessarily part of the fiction. I love this set.

Winston made me really happy - there's a blue proton pack with a yellow cable, just like the old Kenner figure. The energy blast is the same as the movie figures (not red like the Kenner one), but you do get painted-on details to match the original character toy and animation model. If this set wasn't $20, I'd say buy it just for Winston. Even at $20... I don't regret it. This is awesome.

The octopus is weird - obviously Playmobil is being brilliant in amortizing old tooling, so I don't know if Winston here is fighting a ghost octopus or an actual sea creature. I can't assume he'd be such a jerk as to get a boat just to shoot green rockets at a delightful sea creature, but Playmobil is known for their epic weirdness in some toys. Maybe Winston has decided it's tako Tuesday. The mold for the octopus has been in circulation for decades, and its rubbery feel is just like the ones I bought back in the 1990s. It's kind of perfect, and if you don't already have an octopus, now you do and you're better off for it. The arms can kind of hold on to certain things, but not as well as a figure's hands.

The aqua scooter is another mold being used for other purposes, the Team SHARK Rocket Rafter is almost wackier than this one - but I love the Ecto-1-inspired deco. The blue slime is a nice touch, and the yellow and black tampos are great. I'm impressed how the stickers are mostly just there for the PKE Meter and Ghost Trap - the scooter is completely pre-painted, with some assembly required. It's like an old Kenner toy, but better - and it really floats, too. The firing rockets aren't all that fancy, but the coloring and size seems appropriately retro.

Playmobil's target audience is tough to determine. In 2018, Playmobil makes a toy inspired by 1985 Kenner toys from a cartoon that I don't believe airs on TV anywhere - maybe it was a big streaming hit in Germany, or Playmobil is tugging on the sleeves of current American new dads. It feels like a real Kenner toy, but it's not one - therein lies the brilliance. If you stumble on this at a price you can afford, I'd say get it. As a Playmobil fan and a Kenner dork I think this is one of the best sets I've bought in a while.
