  • Blitzway Ghostbusters Special Pack In-Depth Review & Instructional Video

    I spent a little over 2 days shooting this review so I hope everyone enjoys it and I hope it answers some questions for you. The video is over One Hour long and I cover every single little details about the figures and the accessories and I show you how to properly assemble all of the various components. To summarize whether or not I recommend the figures, well - I can only recommend them if you are a die-hard Ghostbusters fan, they are without question the best set of Ghostbusters figures ever produced. But there are certain areas Blitzway did not deliver such as the head-sculpts - you're simply not going to receive the same head-sculpts that you all saw in the promotional images. There is a lot of pro's & Con's to this set and ultimately I hope my review helps you out. Enjoy

      Any news from forbiddenplanet.com in the UK for shipping on figures yet ?. Want to know if I need to save Christmas funds for Venkman or can I spend it on gifts.

      (I have e-mailed them but still waiting).

      Addressing some direct questions about Steve and Timewalker:

      Our Ghostbusters are landing on Thursday, and well start shipping ASAP and throughout the weekend. Steves been wrapping up billing and confirming shipping addresses all week. If anyone has specific order questions, message us.

      Yet another thing blitzway has bungled is this so called simultaneous worldwide release

      I originally chatted with them when it went up for PO. They said no plans to distribute at that time but not surprised they jumped on it. The NRD cash cow lol.

      They must make a damn fortune on big ticket items that folks pre-order 12-15 months in advance and then realize they can't pay for it or lose interest. I have never lost an NRD myself.

      Yes, but nothing from BlueFin, who are shipping all TW's domestic US orders. Don't know who is handling the notices.

      I had an email from forbiddenplabet.co.uk saying the 4 pack would be early to mid Jan. Not sure about the singles and this is a different company but should be a similar time.

      I put a pre-order in with forbidden planet international (forbiddenplanet.co.uk) for just one figure, however they e-mailed me back late October saying "Unfortunately we have now been informed that this item has been cancelled by our supplier, thus we are unable to obtain any further supplies. Please be assured that any refunds owed will be processed as quickly as possible. We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience caused. Best regards Jonathan Customer Services " I ended up just buying from a company called uktoyz who should have them in just before Christmas/early new year.

      I just got my shipping confirmation from thegoodthebadandtherobots that my 4 pack of ghosterbusters should be here tomorrow.

      I just checked their site and they got the 3 pack in stock if anyone in the UK is interested.

      Thank you so much! I just nabbed it as I'm unsure if and when my four pack will get here.

      Congratulations - was that a preorder or was it actually in stock?

      Was in stock. I'm paranoid about missing out after reading of some retailers cancelling pre-orders. At least now I'll have the 3 pack and Slimer. If/when I do get my 4 pack in Jan-Feb I'll keep Winston and the police baricade then sell the rest.
