|Comments: The Ghostbusters, New York’s very own paranormal investigators, are back in the headlines and this time around they have a new recruit, Lucy. This Ghostbuster-in-training is determined not to let any spook, specter or ghost get past her and she has the equipment to back her up. Outfitted in Egon Spengler’s proprietary Proton Pack and Ecto Goggles, she is truly a slime-eradicating force to be reckoned with!
Standing triumphantly over a ghost trap after bagging her latest catch, Lucy lets loose a smile of satisfaction over another job well done. She rests the wand of her proton pack on her left shoulder while her other hand sits calmly at her exposed hip. Her uniform has definitely seen better days as her pants are torn and tattered from this recent spectral encounter. The standard issue Proton Pack has thankfully remained unscathed exhibiting incredibly sculpted details such as the power cell, crank generator and Cyclotron.
Ghostbuster Lucy was first revealed as an addition to Kotobukiya's Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) collection at the 2011 Toy Fair in New York City. It is based on an original character design by master illustrator, Shunya Yamashita and sculpted by Masahiro “Gill Gill” Takahashi. This statue stands nearly 9 ½ inches tall (in 1/7th scale) and stands atop a specially designed base uniquely accented with a manhole cover donning the Ghostbuster logo. Lucy began shipping in August 2011.
