Paul Feig offers sneak-preview of new GHOSTBUSTERS Action Figures from Mattel

Written by

Two days ago, Tom Burns of 8-Bit Dad weighed in on the usual hard-to-find nature of female action figures by making an off-the-cuff remark about the future availability of toys from Director Paul Fieg's GHOSTBUSTERS.

The first batch to be revealed? Mattel's 6" line of articulated figures. Take a look...
