okay, the action figures were awsome. no queston. but they never really had a tiny little trap to come with them. and that sucked. but what other improvements would had you have put fourth to any of the RGB action figures and accesories?
im gone.

I think the figures themselves should've been made more flexable. Like their arms could've been made to bend inward at the upper arms and also to bend at the elbows. The legs even could've been made to bend at the knees. If this petition for figures that look like the GB's from the movie works out I hope that's how they'll be made too. Oh yeah and with real clothes. Then with that, they could then be supplied with an extra set of clothes too.

I loved the toys, but one thing did bother me. They had really long proton streams. I could never fit thier packs in the car. It was great when I played with them and had streams to catch ghosts with, but I always wanted them to be removable. I could of just ripped them off but I never liked altering my toys, especially GB's. I also would like them to be more poseable, have traps, and real clothes as well.

Considering it was the 1980s...

Howabout some knee and elbow joints, a ghost trap with every figure as well as a way to attach them to the proton packs, something with the streams so they can fit in Ecto-1, and variants with the movie suits and black proton packs.

They all should have come with traps (the only one who ever came with a normal trap was screaming heros Peter). They needed more articulation, and they could have had better head sculpts. I wish the neutrona throwers would of been like in the cartoon also. Other than more ghosts that actually appeared in the shows, a Ghostbusters II line would have been cool with Vigo and slime blowers and stuff.

You got that right. You betcha. Tell me about it. Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Man, I think I've been watching too much of The Royal Canadian Air Farce.

Hey it's cool that you all agree with me on wishing the figures were more posable.

make the proton gun go on right cause it went on upside down. and the other was of course a trap and pke meter and giga meter would have been coo. the car needed more sirens on top. and the gun to the pack needed to look right too.

You gotta Remember the toys for the most part came before GB2. There couldn't have been a giga meter. And the car in RGB didn't have that many sirens and lights, so the equipment on Ecto-1 is the only thing that could really have imporvement on. Oh, and having an actual back seat wink. Also, the guns were modeled after the ones in the original RGB, which was a promo commercial thingy. And the toys looked very much like them. And the guns weren't upside down. You could attatch them upside down, but you didn't have to wink

Just reminded me....LIGHTS AND SIRENS!!! Why should EGB get the cool car? Have Ecto-1 with flashing lights and a siren a-la the Hess trucks. Also, in 89 a line of GB2 figures with the GB2 logo and gear. A PKE in every Egon pack. An Ecto-Goggle with every Ray. Maybe even at one point a Tobin's Spirit Guide accessory. Terror Dogs, Zuul, Dana with Baby Oscar, Gozer, Gatekeeper, Vigo, and Janosz figures. Hey, howabout a 14" Stay Puft figure and an interactive Shandor Building playset. Ooooh...howabout a fully poseable Lady Liberty play set with snap and release bashing arm.

So in other words, you'd rather they be GB/GB2 toys instead of RGB toys wink

"More posability" is a pretty universal gripe--maybe having figures that could actually hold their particle throwers the right way instead of strapping them to their arms.

And it was just amazing that Kenner didn't do more to tie-in with GB2. Vigo, Ray and Winston with Slime Blowers, that would've been cool.

I find it amazing that they did anything at all with gb2 (Ecto-1A), since it wasn't really RGB related.

Well, they coulda made the GB2 line in RGB style, like with Ecto-1A and the Slime Packs. Besides, who here hasn't tried to re-inact the movies with cheesy fake props and by stealing their sister's brunette Barbie to be Dana?

Oh yeah, I can't believe we all forgot this one! The most totally innovation seen in the very last line of figures. No, I don't mean glow-in-the-dark capabilities, I'm talking proton streams that actually HOLD ghosts. Each guy comes with a ghost, great...but design each stream to hold the ghost instead of those spaghetti streams we hadda deal with for 5 years.
