Playmobil launches six new Ghostbusters sets

Published on: 15th May 2017

The Ghostbusters range, consisting of six new sets, appeared in UK retailers on 12th May. 

GhostbustersThe new range is the first venture into an entertainment licence for Playmobil, and the launch is being supported by a national TV advertising campaign, as well as print advertising and PR.

The new sets contain classic favourites such as the famous Firehouse Headquarters, Ecto-1 and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, plus Spengler and Ghost, Slimer with Hot Dog Stand, and Venkman and Terror Dogs. These sets feature beloved characters such as Ray Stanz, Dana Barrett, Winston Zeddemore, Janine Melnitz, Egon Spengler, and Louis Tully, plus other ghosts and ghouls.

Within the Firehouse, kids will be able to prepare the team for the capture of ghosts and store them in the Ghost Containment unit located in the basement. Characters can jump into action straight away thanks to their ability to easily be attached to the fireman’s pole. The Ecto-1 vehicle has the original siren sound and lights, plus space for up to four Ghostbusters figures as well as their proton packs, ghost traps, and other equipment.

Everyone’s favourite villain, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, is back within the Playmobil range. At over 13cm tall he towers over the other figures, and with his moving arms and rotatable hands he can grip other Playmobil accessories.
