‘Ghostbusters’ New Villian revealed at 2016 Toy Fair

An Instagram user by the name of Pixel Dan snapped a quick picture while at the 2016 Toy Fair and managed to give fans our first look at the villain Rowan from the new Ghostbusters film.

Confirmed at #Mattel this morning that this is the main villain in the new #Ghostbusters movie. #ToyFair #TF16 #NYTF

Does it look familiar to you? It’s essentially the ghost from the no-ghost logo brought to life. As the symbol for the Ghostbusters it works quite well, but when it’s brought to life in three-dimensional form, that’s something that’s up for debate.


Now we know when Neil Casey was cast as Rowan, not a lot of details were released. So one can guess that he may transform into this from a human form in the same way that Louis Tully and Dana Barrett became terror dogs. It will start to make perfect sense when Ghostbusters comes out in July.
