Created from the same molds as the prop for the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie, this is the life-size foam rubber and latex Slimer replica from NECA (the National Entertainment Collectibles Association – an awfully official-sounding name for a collectibles manufacturer). Obviously, he will be the focal point of all my Halloween decorations this year, and every year from now on.
Standing 3-feet tall, each Slimer is hand-painted and weighs approximately 34-pounds, which, I think we can all agree, sounds suspiciously heavy for a ghost. And he costs $550 from Entertainment Earth and $600 from the Big Bad Toy Store, which sounds suspiciously expensive for a ghost. Just buy an old house and you can get a whole bunch for free.
Do you know what would be even cooler than a replica of Slimer from the original Ghostbusters? A replica of the librarian ghost from the very beginning of the movie. And by cooler, I meant more terrifying. You know she’s the reason when I wake up in the middle of the night and have to go to the bathroom I convince myself to just hold it until morning instead.
