Update: “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig has tweeted out the following image, which reveals Mattel’s prototype 6″ action figures for the film…

Original story: Director Paul Feig has responded to the outcry from fans who feel there should be more female-centric merchandising for major genre films, after the lack of Black Widow and Rey toys for “The Avengers” films and “Star: Wars The Force Awakens,” respectively. Feig confirmed that his female-led “Ghostbusters” flick will come along with plenty of female action figures. The upset among fans for the lack of female action figures has manifested in the #WheresRey, #WheresBlackWidow and #WheresGamora hashtags, which bring attention to the minimal merchandising for those key characters on Disney’s part. Feig took to Twitter to hype the release of upcoming female “Ghostbusters” figures, featuring main cast members Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon, saying:  

In addition to hyping Diamond Select, Funko and Mattel action figures for his “Ghostbusters” film — which will include a set of 14 figures — Feig instilled a lot of excitement by announcing LEGO tie-ins for the film:

From Columbia Pictures, “Ghostbusters is slated for a July 15 release.

    stellar job on these. can’t wait for the ghost additions.

    the film needs putting down before it’s released

  • MichaelSacal

    You guys are wrong. People will definitely buy these figures, there is no doubt about it — they’ll need their female bodies to create custom figures of characters they actually want, like Black Widow and Rey.

  • Wonderkarp

    I could see getting one and customizing it to be a good ghostbusters character. Like Janine or Kylie

  • red vector

    Unlike these, people actually want Black Widow and Rey figures.

  • MichaelSacal

    Undoubtedly.
