Paul Feig reveals 'Ghostbusters' action figures

Posted on

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has drawn some fire for failing to promote its breakout female protaganist on the shelves of toy stores. But that won’t be an issue with the new Ghostbusters, which stars four funny ladies. Director Paul Feig revealed a first look at the film’s accompanying toys on Twitter, where he shared a photo of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon in the form of 6-inch action figures.

Feig didn’t reveal much else — “Our Mattel 6″ prototypes,” he wrote, “#TheresGhostbusters” — so it’s not clear when these miniature Ghostbusters will be available for purchase, but it should be sooner rather than later: He announced that the comedy had wrapped filming this past September, and it’s set to arrive in theaters on July 15.
