Playmobil, a toy company based out of Germany, has been producing high-quality plastic figures and playsets for children since 1974. Its most popular themes have included Jungle, Western, Fairy Tale, Ghost Pirates, and Sports.
And now Playmobil is introducing a line its unique brand of miniatures themed around an incredibly popular American movie franchise– “Ghostbusters”. The upcoming collection includes the Ghostbusters’ classic firehouse, their iconic car the ECTO-1, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, and most of the main characters from the original film– up to and including Janine Melnitz, Louis Tully, and of course Slimer.
While I was personally more excited to get my hands on the ECTO-1 and Ghostbusters firehouse Lego sets that came out over a year ago, these would make a wonderful addition to any fan’s shrine to Ray, Winston, Egon, and Peter. And they might be especially perfect for parents who want help introducing Ghostbusters to younger children.
The Playmobil Ghostbusters line will be available this May.
