Kenner 1990 Ghostbusters (Slimed Heroes ) - Winston Zeddmore V.6

Winston here has been in my collection for a little while now, I just can't remember where I got It from. I think It may have been either Buzzchuck from Action Figure Adventures or Jason Vorhees from My 2nd Toy Blog. Either way It's a great little figure but an extremely sad one. You see I've been meaning to find his proton pack/accessories as well as add a couple more GB's to the mix but haven't been able to. Ghostbusters figures are super expensive on Ebay and so are the accessories.So until they see a major price droppage , I'm afraid that  Zeddmore will continue to fly solo. This Is actually  Winston Zeddmore's sixth action figure in a  Ghostbusters line that began way back in 1986!The final line of figures released in 1991 I believe,after a long and successful  run.This version of Winston Zeddmore came with a ghost that would squirt ice cold water on the figure, revealing pink slime stains all over Winston's uniform.The great thing about this "Slimed Heroes" wave  is that they are actually  recasts of the  original,1986  line of Ghostbusters figures.

  • Based on popular live action  80's film and cartoon series!
  • cool "slimed" gimmick when wet with ice cold water .Mine doesn't work anymore :(
  • Same mold as the original 1986 line of Ghostbusters figures
  • Cool accessories If you can manage to find them or a complete/carded figure
  • sturdy and easy to stand/display

  1. I have always loved these Ghostbusters figure! I had no idea that they are super expensive on Ebay. When I had the local toy scalper at my house buying stuff a while back he snatched up the Ghostbusters lightning fast so I guess that should have been a clue that they have recently gone up in price.

    1. I wouldnt overpay on Ebay if I where you either, These guys do show up in the wild quite a bit so your chances are good that you will get more at a good price.

    2. I've actually been watching a couple of loose incomplete figs that aren't that expensive, but good luck finding one of the original GB's with accessories for under 15 bucks :(

    1. Neither did I until I came across this one. I always thought they were an 80's thing.

  6. Man, I know the feeling. All I want is a single, complete Egon figure. Good luck finding a loose one for less than $30.

    Funny, but I don't remember seeing Ghostbusters figures around here in 1990. I feel like they disappeared from the shelves after the first few series.

    1. I don't either. I was surprised myself when I looked at the date stamp lol. I guess at the time they started to die out ,Ninja Turtles were in full stride, which kind of overshadowed whatever product Kenner had released late80's,early 90's.
