On this day in 1984, horror comedy classic Ghostbusters was released in U.S. theaters. Three decades later we’re still playing with toys based on the film. While the figures might look silly, Playmobil’s Ecto-1 is one of the coolest renditions of the Ghostbusters’ iconic ride yet.
Invented by German Inventor Hans Beck in 1974, Playmobil has been a toy store mainstay for decades, yet it’s never reached the height of popularity enjoyed by the likes of Lego. That could change this year, as Playmobil gets into the licensing game with Ghostbusters and How To Train Your Dragon.
