You know, most accessory packs for action figures come with things like extra weapons or extra storage options. Maybe even an extra bit of clothing. Rarely, do they come with an in-scale replica of a human being that’s had all of its skin flayed off.
Thanks to NECA, you don’t necessarily have to be a famous Hollywood director to remake Ghostbusters. With this life-size replica of Slimer from the original film, you’re one prop closer to realizing your take on the classic comedy, maybe starring four golden retrievers this time.
The old school vibe of Quentin Tarantino’s latest wild west movie doesn’t just extend to the director’s trademark styles or it setting—it extends to the merchandise, too. Fluffy, oversized coats for everyone!
