Remember a time when toys were fun and pandered to kids instead of collectors?
Remember a time when, as a result, kids used to play with them even when cartoons and video games were readily available to them?
Hell, kids even used to read comics back then, now only middle aged men do.
i had the cop who was a skellington on the inside
kinda fucked up
so, no slimer....
well these have lots of articulation, but they're hardly colorful or distinct from each other
i guess they're not for kids tho, so looking like they'd be any fun to play with is out then
I wanted that badass but could never find him in the shops he was always sold out everytime my mom took me.
Same as the damn raptors and t-rex toys for Jurrasic Park so I had to settle for the wounded tricertops.
This August is premiere. I find it weird as well.
They do a fucking promo tour over a year before premiere in a childrens hospital, the children won´t even know who they are unless they follow fucking imdb news. Hell, they probably died or will die before this piece of shit is out. Fucking disgraceful movie for this reason alone just pure engineered marketing hype.
i don't understand why people send people to /out/, hotgluing has nothing to do with outdoors you fucking newfag.
And I wonder why that is was my point.
Most kids stopped playing with figurines before iPads even, because middle aged nerds took over their hobby and marketing started pandering to them instead of the original audience. And they've stopped playing outside, not just because of all of this stuff available to them, but because fear sells in the media causing parents to see kidnappers and pedophiles everywhere, panicking if the kid doesn't report to them on his cellphone every couple of hours. I was a kid just before the cellphone revelation started. I remember a time where you could be gone for half the day without parents worrying where you were, and there was a certain healthy freedom to that for both parties. Furthermore, I don't regret treating my toys like toys, I had fun with them at the intended age and I don't care if they can't sit on my shelf any longer.
I had Egon, the Hard Hat Horror and a few ecto-plazms.
I was really frustrated when the toyline seemed to just disappear from stores overnight and was too old when Extreme Ghostbusters rolled around. Wouldn't have minded owning more Ghostbusters or G1 Transformers for that matter, but had to do with TMNT instead.
You discover this is OP, Greg Mazujian.
He eats shit, fucks trees, is a Jesus freak, and wants to molest kids.
When did Claire Redfield become a Ghostbuster?
These toys were purely made so Sony gets progressive points. They have no intention of winding up in the hands of a child, they will be buried en masse in the ditch next to ET cartridges.
>no more saturday morning cartoons
>no more commercials aimed at children
>no more weekly after school cartoon blocks
>never see kids playing outside, climbing trees, or using their imagination
>no more recess
>no more art, music, theater
>no more dodgeball
>Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks movie audience filled with more autistic adults instead of children
>grew up with shows that had great animation, art, and story arcs, now children subjected to tumblr tier flash animations passing themselves off as cartoons that are watched primarily by the same autistic millennials
Nobody buries anything anymore. I can still get The Phantom Menace toys in a local supermarket. They will just shelf-warm to hell and back like Bayformers Bumblebee and Black Series Finn.
>all of that still exists but now exists for adults only
>children just watch YouTube videos of animals and unboxings now
I'd be horrified but a lifetime of media over saturation has obliterated any feelings I would have anymore.
We are entering a post-child consumerist nightmare. The audience of the first real effort to cater media towards children is still clinging to child franchises and have become a large demographic.
Movies with all-women roles are truly amazing.
When this movie flops the sjw's will claim it's failure as evidence for how backward and out of touch the male populace still are, and will only shout louder about how much further they need to go to change things
It is literally win win for the liberals
>YFW a fucking cartoon from the 90s is a much better progressive GB reboot.
Same thing with the Men In Black cartoon being much better than both sequels combined and the 1K98 Godzilla cartoon being better than the shitty movie it was based on.
>implying the kids will have a say in the matter
You ain't seen nothing yet.
Just wait for the remakes of the "Dollars Trilogy", featuring an all-women starring cast, and a dubstep soundtrack.
This is the road we're headed folks - or rather this is the road jewlywood will lead us on.
I have just the right binary for this cunt.
First a right jab to dazzle her, and then a left uppercut to put her to sleep.
Depending on how big they are, I might get one so that I can put a proton pack on a storm trooper.
I'd be willing to give the figure itself to /tv/ on the agreement that the recipient hot glues the gorilla and posts it.
I think it's helped along by the fact that it isn't a complete reboot but a sequel to The Real Ghostbusters. That and they didn't just try to ride on the character's diversity and as a result they're fairly well written for a children's cartoon.
I can't imagine little boys being interested in figures of middle aged women.
Damn, I had all the figures down the right hand side as a kid. I didn't even know they were ghostbusters toys.
