Jada Toys Ghostbusters Collection Metals Die-Cast Figures Review

Ghostbusters fans have been treated to some excellent merchandise this year following the new 2016 film with the all female cast members. While that movie underperformed at the box office, which is a statement that some industry professionals disagree with including cast members, fans have been offered merchandise from not only the new film, but also the 1984 and Ghostbusters 2 (1989) that otherwise might not had happened due to this year being the first new film since the original movies. One company in particular is Jada Toys with their new Metals Die-Cast figures that are based on the classic 1984 film. The new collection consists of each of the classic Ghostbusters that are made using die-cast and plastic parts in 4″ scale, a 2-pack with Slimer and Slimed Peter Venkman, and a 6″ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man with a happy face.

Thank you to Jada Toys for providing their Ghostbusters Metals Die-Cast figures for review.

Availability: Summer 2016

The Ghostbusters Metals Die-Cast figures are 4″ in scale in scale and features the likeness to Actors Ernie Hudson, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, and Bill Murray that portrayed the four main characters. Each of the main Ghostbusters figures including Slimed Peter is made with a Die-Cast body with a plastic head sculpt, proton pack, hands feet, elbow pads and straps. As seen in the movie, each character has their last name on the upper left side of their chest, a logo on the right shoulder, and each figure is painted in a tan uniform, grey belt, non-removable proton pack with green straps, and black shoes, gloves, and elbow pads. Ray Stanz is the only figure with the Ecto-Goggles sculpted on the top of head with the same shade of green as the straps, and Egon has his glasses painted on his head sculpt.

The 2-pack includes Slimer, and a repainted Slimed version of Peter Venkman that has slime on his head, uniform, and proton pack. Slimer is made with Die-Cast and plastic parts, with the body and stand mad of Die-Cast, and the face, arms and hands made of plastic. The arms are also on swivel joints, and the body has layers of skin we’ll call it folded up that also looks like fat. As far as accuracy goes, the design is pretty good and the deco is a bright green, with red eye balls and mouth. The stand also resembles a puddle of slime as if Slimer went though the floor or a wall. Peter uses the same sculpt and deco as the single boxed offering, with the added Slime deco.

No collection is complete with a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The figure is 6″ scale and has an excellent likeness and design to the 1984 Ghostbusters film. The figure is made using Die-Cast and plastic parts, with the body made of Die-Cast, and the hands, shirt and scarf, and head sculpt are made using plastic. The arms, hands and head sculpt can swivel and the figure is painted in white deco, a blue shirt with white trim, a red scarf, a blue cap with the words Stay Puft on the blue deco, and a red ribbon on top of the hat. The facial expression is smiling, as this is the happy face version before the Ghostbusters fired the proton streams at him from the rooftop.

Overall:

Jada Toys Ghostbusters line features a beautifully sculpted likeness to the Classic film and offers fans and collectors a highly detailed Metal Die-Cast figure for a very reasonable price. These Die-Cast figures are sculpted, painted, and designed extremely well and have a great likeness to the animated series.

The sky is the limit with how far Jada Toys can take many of their current and other licenses with this style, and with Ghostbusters, this could easily include more characters from both classic films, and the new 2016 movie. Additional characters and variants we would like to see are Marshmallow mess versions of the 4 Ghostbusters, Slimed Egon, Ecto-1 Die-Cast vehicle (preferably can hold all four figures), Gozer, Janine, Louise, Gatekeeper, Keymaster, Terror Dogs, Vigo, Library Ghost, Taxi Cab Ghost, among others. Hopefully, they will even look into The Real Ghostbusters, which has not seen any new releases for years now.

Highly Recommended.
