Ghostbusters - GOZER!

Ghostbusters: Plasma Series Wave 1 - Gozer the Gozerian - Hasbro 2020

Ghostbusters is the third movie I ever saw in the movie theater way back in 1984 (after E.T. and Return of the Jedi). The nearest theater was in a mall an hour away so we went very infrequently... but the rarity of the occasion made the event memorable every time. By the time I saw Ghostbusters, I was already a big fan of villainous women. Baroness from G.I.Joe. Evil-Lyn from Masters of the Universe, and Catwoman from the Batman '66 show in syndication were all idols to me. But Gozer was the first villainess I ever saw that was actually scary (without any buffoonery to temper the evil). I still get chills when I see her on screen. This Plasma Series Gozer is the third true action figure (from different companies) in the past 16 years and it's probably the best of the lot. She has fantastic articulation and a great sculpt overall. I'm not super thrilled with her face paint, but that might just be my copy. Overall she's a great figure. Let's check out Gozer the Gozerian below!

I love female characters with flat-top hairstyles. Probably because I personally had this style for most of the 80s and 90s. I think the only other character I have with this haircut is Martha Washington. I really hope the new Conan line from Super7 might eventually include a figure of Grace Jones as Zula from Conan the Destroyer.

Gozer comes with an alternate set of hand with energy effects.

She also come with the Terror Dog Head Build-a-Figure piece.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Gozer with the Plasma Series Dana.

  1. Great to see more Ghostbusters figures coming out!

    Hasbro have done really well with Gozer. Though I'm not sure why Hasbro figures can't stand in hi-heels anymore. My old Spiderman 3 MJ & all my little Baroness figures stand fine in them...without getting the 'wedge' treatment Gozer has here.
