Let’s say you’re a toy collector who loves a certain 1980s paranormal comedy, and you want to add some super-articulated figures that are relatively inexpensive to your display. Who ya gonna call?

io9 is excited to exclusively debut Hasbro’s new Ghostbusters Plasma Series, a “premium, collectible” series with “collector grade deco across multiple points of articulation, character-inspired accessories, and photorealistic actor likenesses.” So basically, these are what the Black Series is to Star Wars figures.

Available for pre-order today, and in stores this summer, the first wave includes Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston, Dana, and Gozer. Plus, each comes with a buildable component that, for this wave, will give you a Terror Dog.

Enough talking, how about some photos? We’ve got the characters in package and out. First up, Peter Venkman.

Put them all together and what do you get? “Okay. Who brought the dog?”

Now, how you can make all these great characters from the first movie and leave out Louis Tully with the Egon helmet on, we aren’t sure. But Hasbro is clear to label these as “Wave One,” so more are likely to be on the way. There’s also a new Ghostbusters movie out this year, in case you didn’t know.

The Plasma Series will be up for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse at 1:30 p.m. EST on Saturday, February 22 (Here’s Venkman, Stanz, Egon, Winston, Dana, and Gozer) and all major toy retailers (Amazon, Target, Entertainment Earth, GameSpot, Big Bad, Dorkside, etc.) beginning at 4:00 p.m. EST. They’ll then be on shelves this summer. Which other characters do you want to see, either as figures or as the ghost build?
