Hi, this time I wanted a Slimer figure for my 12″ Ghostbusters figures from Matty Collector, so I found a Kenner vintage figure of slimer (as Mattel decided to do a cartoon look on their figures, i needed a cartoon Slimer too)
I added articulation to the arms, filled the hole and added interchangeable mouths for more expression.
Aside from the highly modded Kenner Slimer, both Venkman and Stantz feature custom paints job as well additional lights were also put into the proton packs and neutrona wands.
