The real ghostbusters toyline probably needed more characters than the main four and a few ghosts. Most of the times, the ghosts in the cartoons, appeared only one, so the ghosts in the Real Ghostbusters toyline are invented or concepts made exclusively for the film.
In this wave, Kenner provided a series of 6 classic monsters:
- The Hunchback from Notre-Dame
- The Mummy
I have two of them, and these are the ones I am showing today. They have similar features to the Fright Features versions of the main characters: when pushing one leg against the other each monster would move in a scary gesture. There are no transformation or hidden monsters. I like that the figures have different sizes.
The two figures I have are Frankenstein and Dracula. The first one is huge and adapts its classic pose with straight arms and open mouth. Unfortunately it is quite damaged by sunlight, so I will try to replace it soon.
Dracula is is good shape and includes its cloak, which is a difficult accesory to find. Dracula also performs a move that reminds of the classic pose from the Universal movies, in which Dracula opens his arms to approach his victims.
The two figures are really great, I am looking forward to get the other 4!
