At Toy Fair 2017 back in February, Diamond confirmed their 7" Select scale of Ghostbusters figures will continue in 2017 passed it's 5th series. Series 6 would move the focus from the original 1984 movie to the 1989 sequel. The build-a-diorama for this second batch would be the frontage of the Ghostbusters fire house. On display at Toy Fair was a 7" Vigo The Carpathian figure, as well as a cardboard placeholder for Janosz. Diamond have confirmed the full line-up for the first 3 figure wave.
Vigo is included as we had suspected. We also get Ray in his darker Ghostbusters 2 outfit, complete with Santa hat. And the third figure is Louis Tully in his Ghostbusters gear from the climax of the movie.
Ray is a re-use of his original release with a new paint job and Ghostbusters 2 logo. The head however is a new smiling sculpt. At this point we don't know if the Santa hat is removable. Louis is also going to borrow heavily from the original figures - although he has been shortened a touch. The head is similar to the original release but the ear muffs seem to be sculpted in place. Vigo is a new figure, and we hope they find the budget to include his painting as an accessory?
The initial release date is scheduled for November 2017 on Big Bad Toy Store, while Entertainment Earth are quoting January 2018
