Fisher-Price Imaginext Series 7 Collectible Figures Buster of GhostsGiven Mattel had a license to make Ghostbusters toys, this non-branded Buster of Ghosts is a strange one. Playmobil did a whole line on the movies and cartoons, Mattel did roleplay and action figures, so the move to make a non-licensed generic ghost apprehension action figure is a strange one. The backpack, meter, and goggles reek of the 1984 movie - but the blaster and colors are wholly original. It's so close, with some paint it could be Ray or Peter. At press time I do not see any customs based on either, but maybe we'll see some eventually.

The goggles are connected to the familiar-looking slime blower/proton pack hybrid backpack, which helps you to not lose them. When you slip the harness over the shoulders, the eye gear slides in place on the figure's forehead. The backpack sports a clip for either the green blaster or brown meter accessories, both of which fit perfectly in the 3-inch yellowish figure's hands. Sadly there's no ghost in the packet, but the Headless Horseman in the wave or any of a number of monsters could make good paranormal fodder for this buster's needs to feel good.

The 3-inch figure itself looks sort of like a rookie ghostbuster. He'a a little worried and the face seems a little thin with slicked (slimed?) down hair and no visible no-ghost markings of any kind. I'm a little surprised the Imaginext "i" was on the boot and not an arm band. Given its strangeness as a 1980s-themed-but-not-licensed character, which seems to be the norm in preschool lines, it's kind of great.

With so many wholly original characters next to cultural staples, toy tuckerisms, and familiar faces of folklore, a sorta-kinda-buster of ghosts is a good fit. This is a type of character fans will recognize from the cultural DNA, although the way it is presented in the packaging you might not even realize it is there. Dad is probably going to have to explain it to the tiny tots - and given these tend to be on clearance if you can still find them, well, that's just as well. It's well worth the few bucks if you're in to such things, and it might fit in well with your haunted Scooby-Doo playsets or other such things. It has no real other home at this time. If you're torn between this and the Playmobil sets, I'd nudge you to the admittedly more expensive Playmobil sets.
