Hasbro's first-ever PulseCon is in full swing, and it's brought with it announcements and reveals from many beloved properties, including Power Rangers, Star Wars, Marvel, G.I. Joe, and more. Now you can add Ghostbusters to the mix, as Hasbro is bringing back a classic toy from Kenner's Ghostbusters line, and it's none other than the Ghostbusters GhostPopper. The NERF-styled blaster originally released back in the 1980s, and it's back with some slick retro-styled packaging. The blaster you remember has kept its design and style and the six soft foam GhostPops that serve as the blaster's ammunition. It also comes with two cut-out targets of Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man on the back of the box, and you check it out up-close starting on the next slide.
You can check out the official description below.
