by Sean P. Aune | March 9, 2020March 9, 2020 9:30 am EDT

Ghostbusters: Afterlife hits theaters this year, and it appears that Hasbro is very ready to support the return of the team. The crazy thing is just how much support it is giving.

There is going to be a Ghostbuster product for just about every price point and age group. But we’re going to kick things off with the Plasma series, the high-end of the line.

If you’re familiar with the Star Wars Black Series, or Marvel Legends, then you know exactly what quality of figure you’ll be receiving. The first series will consist of six figures and there will be  Build-a-Ghost of one of the dogs from the end of the original film.

GHOSTBUSTERS PLASMA SERIES FIGURES
(Ages 4 and Up / Approx. Retail Price: $19 .99 / Available: Summer 2020)
The premium, collectible Ghostbusters figures that fans been waiting for are here with the GHOSTBUSTERS Plasma Series Figures from Hasbro. Inspired by the original Ghostbusters movies, the Plasma Series Figures features collector grade deco across multiple points of articulation, character- inspired accessories, and photorealistic actor likenesses. Each figure also comes with a buildable ghost component.

The first wave of GHOSTBUSTERS Plasma Series figures features original Ghostbusters characters Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston, Dana, along with Gozer and Terror Dog build-a-ghost pieces (each sold separately)! Available at HasbroPulse.com and most major retailers nationwide.

As with Star Wars, the Plasma Series name will also be used for prop reproductions, and the first one will be a Neutrona Wand.
