Ecto-Glow Hero Figure: Egon Spengler an action figure which is part of Kenners The Real Ghostbusters Toy Line's Ecto-Glow Heroes set. Based on The Real Ghostbusters animated series Egon Spengler.

This toy was exclusively sold in America and was the last group released by Kenner. Note, that Jocsa of Argentina released it's own exclusive group of toys which reused the classic mold like this group and the two group before it.

The Ecto-Glow Heroes group also included Ray, Louis, Winston, and Peter.

The group of toys is rather rare due to the limited release. Note the Glow Copter Vehicle promoted on the back of the cards, which was a tie-in vehicle toy, is believed to have not been released.

Description from Hot! Hot! Hot! Toy Fair 1991 (toy dealer catalog):
"Now kids can enter the ghost world with The Real Ghostbusters Ecto-Glow Heroes! Just turn off the lights and watch them shine! Each figure comes with a hero backpack, mask, Nutrona Blaster and unique companion ghost!"


  • Some of the promotion photos suggest Egon came with Peter's Spider Ghost.
  • Jail Jaw Ghost was already released as a glow in the dark to with Toy Weapon: Ghost Trap, which lacks the blue painted eyes for Egon's version.
  • This version Egon was featured in photos of unreleased Playset: Egon's Lab in Hot! Hot! Hot! Toy Fair 1991, Tomart's Action Figure Digest No. 52, and Tomart's Action Figure Digest No. 92.
  • The unreleased Slimerizer featured Egon in an illustration on the packaging.
