For my 50th figure post, I wanted to go all out. I was originally just going to do a Ghostbuster. But I thought, why not make THE Ghostbusters? All 4 of them. That way I could have them all in different poses and wearing both versions of the uniforms from the 2 movies. I'm particularly proud of how the equipment came out. So here they are, Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore.
Here's Egon holding a PKE meter with the arms on the meter extended. The particle thrower (or proton gun or neutrona wand) is hooked onto the proton pack. The ghost trap is attached to his leg. He has a walkie talkie on his belt and the mysterious yellow hose coming out of the leg of his uniform.
Here's Peter firing the particle thrower. I didn't like the way the figure held it at first. So I modifed my basic figure design by giving him a wrist joint. Now he holds it more like it should be held. The thrower has a hook on one side where it attaches to the side of the pack. I also have a pic of the PKE meter on his belt.
Here's Ray wearing the alternate uniform from Ghostbusters 2. He's also packing the slime blower and tanks. On his forehead he has the goggles he used to search for Slimer in the first movie. I took off the trap and laid it out in front of him too. I'm trying to find a way to have the doors open.
Here's Winston firing the slime blower. I wanted to show the mood slime coming out of it. I included a shot showing the hose connecting the tanks to the blower. While limiting the movement of the blower, it was a nice touch.
I hope to do the cartoon versions of these figures in the future, each with their different colored uniforms.
Looking at the thumbnail it occurred to me that this would make a brilliant theme for the Hero Factory components (like the current superhero theme).
Excellent builds by the way, loving the detail on the proton packs.
