BEHOLD!! NEW GHOSTS!!

More unexpected; might we get a series of GB troops and ghosts based on concept designs unused in past films? While anything is still within the realm of possibility if the new Ghostbusters movie rakes in that cash, one trip to the toy aisles will assure you Hasbro isn't letting this license go stale!
