    Retro Action Ghostbusters?

    I was just watching a promo for an upcoming episode of Attack of the Show and they just showed a brief shot of a Retro Action Ghostbusters figure. It looks like they're based on the cartoon, "The Real Ghostbusters." So far, all I've seen is a quick glimpse of Peter before they went to commercial. Sorry if these were mentioned elsewhere, but I used the Search function and nothing else came up.

    Interesting.

    Mattel is supposed to be revealing con exclusives, and upcoming toys on AOTS towards the middle of the month, so I don't doubt for a second that they may have accidentally leaked something in a promo without even knowing it.
    Looking for Green Arrow accessories, Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver, and Japanese Popy Megos (Battle Cossack and France, Battle of the Planets, Kamen Rider, Ultraman) and World Heroes figures

      I got some pictures of the screen. They're not the best shots, but you can clearly see part of the card art, the figure's head, and a sticker describing a special feature.

        very interesting. The sound bite thing is interesting as well.

                    From the Mattycollector website...

                    Toy Fans,


                    Okay, everyone, we just got official confirmation that our SDCC product reveals are going to air on Attack of the Show on the G4 network April 12th and April 15th!

                    Why two nights? Because the stuff we’re revealing is so good, it couldn’t be done in a single show! Attack of the Show will sneak peek four products each night. We’ll finally put to rest some of the rumors about what we’ll have at SDCC and there are exclusives from some of our most popular collector lines. No, we’re not telling you anything beforehand — you’ll just have to tune in to find out what they all are!

                    You can check your local listings for channels/times, but there’s one thing to keep in mind. Although we’ve been given these dates, it’s not a guarantee our segments will be aired. If another big story comes along, Attack of the Show has every right to bump us (which they’ve done in the past), just like any news show. It’s not likely, but if this does happen, we’ll let you know the minute we hear.

                    If you don’t get G4, never fear. Just visit this very spot on Friday, April 16th and we’ll have the complete list of SDCC products with images PLUS a couple more reveals!

                    —Matty

                    P.S. You know, now that I think about it, maybe I can give you a couple of hints… 1) a DCU item will have a ton of accessories, and 2) we have an Avatar™ item that, for the first time, combines a 3-3/4" figure and a 6" figure in one package.

                        Great news. Hopefully the line won't be a SDCC exclusive. That usually spells expensive.

                            I was told about this last year from a source (not doc) but when nothing happened at toyfair I thought it was total BS. Great eye Amy, this is huge news. I wonder if we'll see another Mattel line go "Retro"?

                              Explains why Mattel made the switch from "WGSH" branding to "Retro-Action"....
