If you’re looking to get your hands on a Plasma Series Ghostbuster figure of director Ivan Reitman, get ready to drum up some serious cash. Rather than creating a batch of these for collectors, Hasbro has decided to keep this run limited, very-very limited.
We spotted this info on the official Ghostbusters Twitter. Unfortunately, only two of these figures have been produced. While one will stay at Ghost Corps, the other will be auctioned off at a charity event for Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. The legendary director and producer comes with a megaphone, clapboard, and removable proton pack. The buck is the same as the other figures in the Plasma Series. The Ivan also comes with a proton stream and a Tobin’s Spirit Guide display box.

If the tweet does not load, here’s what it says:
Reitman passed away in February of this year. He left behind a legacy that included not only Ghostbusters but also Stripes, Kindergarten Cop, Animal House, and Heavy Metal. We’ll post an update as soon as we learn when the fundraising event will occur.

One figure is a gift to our friends and partners at Ghost Corps, to be displayed permanently at their offices in honor of Ivan. The other will be auctioned off during a fundraising event to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Stay tuned for information on how you can bid for this amazing figure and help support a cause near and dear to Ivan’s heart.
