Hasbro Fright Feature Ghosts (Slimer, Stay Puft, Muncher) Review

 By Paul Rudoff on Oct. 6, 2021 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Toys
Image

One of the most memorable series in the original Kenner toyline of the 1980s were the Fright Features (and later the Super Fright Features). While I don't know if Hasbro will bring them back as part of their Kenner Classics line, they have brought back Fright Features as part of a new series of figures. The first wave consists of six human figures based on the classic 1984 film: Peter Venkman (with Terror Dog), Peter Venkman (with Muncher), Winston Zeddemore (with Slimer), Winston Zeddemore (with Yellow Ghost), Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler. Sadly, the humans themselves are just standard Kenner-style figures with no "Fright Feature" abilities. It's the miniature companion ghosts that have the "fright feature".

However, Hasbro also released three full-size ghost figures which DO have a Fright Feature: Slimer, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Muncher. Read on to find out more about them...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Delayed For a Fourth Time - To November 19, 2021

 By Paul Rudoff on Sep. 1, 2021 at 11:30 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters: Afterlife
Image

The running joke of the never-ending changing of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife release date continues. Originally slated for a July 10, 2020 release here in the United States, the film was pushed back to March 5, 2021... then June 11, 2021... then November 11, 2021... and now Variety and Deadline report a new release date of November 19, 2021. Thankfully, it's only a week later.

It does not look like there will be any further release date delays. Sony is doubling-down on a November 2021 theatrical release, even going so far as to get the main cast members to plea with fans to see the film in a theater.


On the postive side, the Deadline article states that "Ghostbusters: Afterlife will inherit the Imax and premium large format screens originally booked by Paramount for Top Gun: Maverick. (Paramount moved it's film slate to 2022, leaving an opening for Sony to fill.) I know nothing about IMAX, but that has to be a good thing.
