A look back at some of our favourite Diamond Select Toys items

Earlier this week we saw the release of Diamond Select Toys “I Love This Town” Minimates box set. Featuring all four main Ghostbusters plus marshmallow covered accessories, the set is a must have for any Ghostbusters collector!

To help celebrate, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite Diamond Select Toys items. From banks, Minimates and even gelatin molds, here’s our top fav items that you can still purchase directly on DiamondSelectToys.com!

Minimates

We have to give the nod to the Series 4 set. It included only ghostly characters featured in the second film, some of which I honestly never expected to see in figure form.

Vigo The Carpathian
Everyone’s favorite Carpathian tyrant has been compacted in Minimate form. Featuring all the spikes and skulls that you’ve seen on his outfit in the film, plus a face only Janosz Poha could love. Speaking of faces, he even comes with an alternate head depicting a possessed Ray Stantz.

Slimer
While Slimer has appeared in the Minimates line several times in the past, this was certainly our favorite rendition. If you hadn’t noticed already, he’s translucent. Heck, check out the stomach full of food!

Now this is when the box set begins to get a bit odd. By odd, I mean amazing.

Jogger Ghost

Seriously, who thought they’d ever see this character in figure form? He was used in the film only shortly durng the montage scene, but oddly enough he’s rather detailed, even featuring a stop watch. Much like Slimer, the Jogger Ghost is also translucent.

Titanic Ghost
Titanic Ghost?! Seriously.

You know, I have to thank Diamond Select Toys on this one. While some companies have grabbed the Ghostbusters licence and gave us several repaints or minor variations of the original four Busters, DST went out and pretty much made every single character you could possibly want from both films. Kudos to them!

Oh, back to the figure…

The Titanic Ghost is made to look like the captain of the ship and much like Slimer and the Jogger Ghost, he’s translucent.

This set is STILL available to purchase over on Diamond Select Toys official website for just $19.99. While you’re at it, be sure to grab the “I Love This Town” pack as they’ll go well with Slimer, Vigo and the rest of the baddies from Ghostbusters 2.

If you’re looking for something to spruce up desserts, may we suggest the Slimer Gelatin Mold:

Hmm, not too sure if Winston would approve.

Not too much can be said about this fella. It’s simple. Simple and fun!

While we’re talking about molds, check out this silicone tray that’s also available from the folks at DST:

While making ice cubes are an obvious choice, we much rather prefer chocolates as seen in the below pic was posted on our Facebook fan page:

You can grab the Slimer Gelatin Mold on DST’s website now for just $14.99. The Ghostbusters Silicone Tray is also available for $14.99.

And last but not least, we’d like to remind everyone that it’s important to save your money. Why? So you can spend it on some Diamond Select Toys products!

What better way to save than stuffing all your change into everyone’s favorite little slime ball, SLIMER!

Other banks are out there, including everybody’s favorite sailor, Stay Puft, but the Slimer one is STILL in stock over on DST’s official site for only $19.99.
