  1. Is there any more information on the other Ecto-1? The word “classic” makes me think it may be a reissue of the ’80s Real Ghostbusters Ecto-1… At least I hope that’s the case. Seems kinda cheap to be that though…

    1. Thanks for reaching out. As of press time the only Ecto-1 set for release is the smaller scaled version designed to fit the new 5” figures.

      Hopefully, Hasbro will release a new version designed for the new 5” Plasma Series figures.
