Mattel confirms Ecto Goggles will feature “toy figure” animation as previously shown
When Mattel released the preview video of their upcoming Ecto Goggles in action, many fans questioned the use of action figures rather than footage from the film when pertaining to the visual effects that are show while wearing the prop replica, some even assuming that what was shown was strictly a mockup thrown together for the video.
Today we have confirmation that what is shown in the above video is in fact what the FINAL retail version will look like.
For those wondering, confirmation came from a recent question on the Ask Matty boards. Here’s what was said:
I previously asked about whether the animation in the video was a mockup. I was told by Toyguru these were not a mockup, but there’s some debate on whether the question was worded clearly.
Obviously the goggles themselves are finalized.
Is is true that the animation in the video is what the final retail product will look like?
Correct. That is the final animation.
A reminder that the Ecto Goggles will be available next Thursday, August 15th.
