There’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood!

After being sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters: Afterlife is finally headed to theaters on November 11, and Hasbro‘s bringing the toys!

This fall, kids will have a host of spooktacular new toys to enjoy, including action figures, vehicles, and roleplay items inspired by the upcoming sequel to Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989). Check out some of the new toys below!


Kids ages 4 and up can create epic adventures with new 5-inch scale figures that come packed with interactive ghost figures, proton packs, and more. Wave 1 (hitting stores now) includes the four original Ghostbusters: Peter, Ray, Egon, and Winston. Wave 2 includes the four kids — Lucky, Trevor, Phoebe, and Podcast from Ghostbusters: Afterlife.  Look for a matching Fright Features Ecto-1 as well!


Kids ages 6 and up can rock the neighborhood with this reinvention of the classic Ghost Trap. The Trap has been added to a radio-controlled base that can drive forward, backward, and make smooth j-hook turns. Be careful, when the RTV Ghost Trap moves in reverse, a ghost named Muncher will pop out and try to make an escape!

Roleplay is a big part of the Ghostbusters experience, and this NERF-enhanced Mini-Puft Popper comes with three soft foam projectiles inspired by the Mini-Puft characters seen in Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Kids ages 8 and up can pair this with other cool items, including Proton Packs and PKE Meters that were previously revealed at Toy Fair New York last year.

Additional new Ghostbusters products are available for kids and collectors alike, including a Clue: Ghostbusters Edition board game, and a full range of 6-inch scale Plasma Series action figures (see them at our sister publication, the Pop Insider).
