So the Plasma series figures are rolling out. I have Half the Busters rolling in from BBTS and the other two from Amazon. But I really want to complete the Demon doggo. I already snagged a Torso but something tells me that I'm going to have to buy Gozer in order to get the head. But there's the sticking point of this line. Only hardcore Buster fans are probably going to keep Gozer. I mean Zuul Dana is at least good for possible Sigourney custom fodder. But that Gozer figure doesn't even look good as Gozer.
For that matter this line feels like it's going to be fizzled out pretty soon. I mean there is some good stuff to build on. GB2 versions of the guys, including Louis in his GB gear. Gotta get a Slimer at some point. Possibly Vigo. If they can make some of the more memorable Ghosts That'd be great too. And while I despise how ATC was handled they could always do the Girls too., And of course Afterlife will need representation. But then what? I mean there is plenty of other things they could draw from. Extreme GB, IDW characters, the Rookie from the video game.... but the sad truth is this franchise is primarily built upon Pete, Egon, Winston, and Ray. We could see the line expand past that but outside of Stuff like Slimer or doing the Guys in their Real GB suit colors and the like, but would it really sell that well? I mean there are outlier things I could see like Kylie or Janine in GB gear but how much of the rest would actually be really wanted.
I'd love to see ghosts from the cartoons brought in with some crazy realistic sculpts. And seeing stuff like Samhain, Boogeyman, or the Grundel would be cool. But after that....? I feel like this is a line that will go by pretty fast unless a fire is lit in the minds of the toy buying fans.
