Ghostbusters: Legacy, Hasbro's action figures are a huge spoiler!

Ghostbusters: Legacy, Hasbro's action figures are a huge spoiler!


Not even the time to elaborate the brand new trailer for Ghostbusters: Legacy that companies have thrown headlong into the promotional campaign of the merchandise, as already happened for Spider-Man: No Way Home the biggest spoilers seem to come right from the world of toys and collecting. Hasbro, the industry leader, is well aware of this, and in the last few hours it has shown, perhaps slightly exceeding in enthusiasm, the new wave of the Plasma Series line dedicated to the new chapter of the Ghostbusters saga.

What problem will there ever be ? Eh, who with peace of mind have "shot out" the image of the three historic Ghostbusters (whose presence was known in the film) complete with a ghost-catcher uniform and proton backpack in action. All this would suggest that the trio composed of Venkman, Zeddmore and Stantz could have a role that is anything but marginal within the film. The editorial staff of CulturaPop, on the occasion of Lucca Comics 2021, previewed the film yesterday 31.10.2021

Update of 01.11.2021 with new images and links for the purchase

It was practically a matter of days and in fact after showing the various figures (with relative spoilers) the pre-orders are finally released thanks to which you can secure your copy before it goes sold-out.

Hasbro's Plasma Series line is made up of action figures made entirely of plastic, with a very low price but which by the very nature of the product, even with discrete technical characteristics, is very appealing to collectors of this kind of products. In the wake of the most famous Black Series (those dedicated to Star Wars) and Marvel Legends (those dedicated to the Super Heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe). For a few years the Plasma Series line has entered by force in the hearts of enthusiasts (and in their current accounts eheheh). Let's not forget that like the aforementioned cousin lines, prop replicas of props such as The Proton Rifle (available online) or the replica of the Ecto-1 in scale with the figures have also been introduced for the Plasma Series line.

Here are the new figures made up of the young protagonists of the film alongside the three historic Ghostbusters. By purchasing the whole wave it will be possible to compose an additional figure called in jargon "Build-A-Ghost" of what is called Sentinel Terror Dog from the catalog, a new version of Gozer's terrible Terror Dog, inevitably leading us to think who could be the opponent of Ghostbusters: Legacy.

The ‘Big’ Way Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters Reboot Impacted Afterlife, According To Jason Reitman

It seems like every Halloween you can spot at least one quartet friends dressed as the iconic squad of ghost hunters from Ivan Reitman’s 1984 film, Ghostbusters. The franchise has seen changes over the years and, now, Reitman’s own son, Jason, has created a true threequel of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. And as the film approaches, the younger Reitman is taking some time to thank Paul Feig and his 2016 reboot for the 'big' way that it impacted his upcoming flick.

Paul Feig is a majorly successful writer, director, and producer who is known for his female-driven films. He’s worked with Melissa McCarthy a number of times, and his version of Ghostbusters was no different. He flipped the script by casting four female leads in the classically male roles. Ultimately, his take on the paranormal experts wasn’t nearly as successful as some of his other projects, like Bridesmaids and Zooey’s Extraordinary Playlist and received a fair amount of backlash.

Nevertheless, Jason Reitman gave credit to the filmmaker for changing things up, during a recent interview with Insider. Reitman believes that his colleague was able to shift the pubic perception of what a Ghostbusters film could look like. Here it is in his own words:

When Paul made his movie, he kind of broke the doors open. Suddenly a 'Ghostbusters' film did not have to be about those four original guys in Manhattan. That was a big moment.

If anything, Paul Feig does deserve credit for attempting a fresh approach to the storied franchise. In the same interview, the Juno filmmaker seems to expel some major hopes and dreams for the franchise. And should his hopes come to pass, it could not only mean big things for the beloved IP but also some major strides for representation in massive blockbusters. Here's what he said exactly:

I want to see all kinds of 'Ghostbusters' movies. I want to see 'Ghostbusters' movies from all my favorite filmmakers, coming from all kinds of different cultures and different countries. Paul really did the hard work so that I could make this movie.

Instead of centering around a squad of professional ghost hunters saving the world, Afterlife tells the story of a single mom and her two kids discovering the legacy of the OG team of ghost chasers. This is very fitting, considering Jason Reitman is taking up his own father’s legacy with this film. The film will see Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson reprising their original roles as the first generation of proton pack-wearing heroes. And joining them will be Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts. All in all, this film should be filled with enough nostalgia to satisfy hardcore fans.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will release to theaters in just a couple short weeks on November 19th.
