Ghostbusters 2016 Minimates Are Tons of Fun

Ghostbusters 2016 Minimates Diamond Select Toys

When I first saw Diamond Select Toys’ Ghostbusters 2016 Minimates at San Diego Comic-Con this year, I was seriously excited. DST has been making Ghostbusters collectibles for quite some time, so it was only fitting that they produced something for the new movie. While I personally am dying for a more life-like Jillian Holtzmann statue, I am happy to be consoling myself with these minimates!

There are actually four sets of Ghostbusters 2016 Minimates – Patty and Slimer, Erin and Holtzmann, and Abby and Rowan’s Ghost, as pictured above…plus a rare set of slimed Patty with Mrs. Slimer! As always with Diamond Select Toys, these minimates are very detailed (especially for their size) and come with a couple accessories. While the Proton Streams are a bit finicky when attached to the Proton Guns, they definitely look fun!

As I already mentioned, there are some great features on these figures – not only do the Proton Streams look cool, but there are other little things, like the movable hair, that I wouldn’t have expected. And speaking of hair, the detail on Patty’s is spectacular!

One thing that I do wish was different were the way these Ghostbusters 2016 Minimates were paired. This is mostly personal preference, but I wish that either Patty and Holtzmann were paired together, or that they were each paired with one of the ghosts. And speaking of the ghosts – I still can’t decide if the Rowan’s Ghost minimate is creepy…or actually kind of cute. Thoughts?

I do know that my X-Files Minimates are getting a bit of a break from watching me work, because these Ghostbusters 2016 Minimates are going to grace my computer base for the foreseeable future!

You can purchase DST’s Ghostbuster 2016 Minimates at your local comic shop or in bulk on the Diamond Select Toys website.
