Ghostbusters Stars Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon

Film merchandise, particularly toys, can often be overlooked. But sometimes, if you read the details and descriptions, they can reveal spoilers. Though the entire merchandise line-up does include a few characters that aren’t even in the movie, they are included as a nod to the fans. And the Ghostbusters toy line-up may have just revealed the movie’s villain, which may look vaguely familiar to those who holds the franchise close to their heart.

The New York Toy Fair is currently underway at the moment, with many of these toy companies showing off their latest and upcoming products. Of course with the summer blockbuster season just a few more months away, you can expect to see more tie-ins. One of those films that will be selling toys is Ghostbusters. Paul Feig‘s new film will feature a new line-up and probably some new monsters. Check out the toy in question below.

Thanks to PixelDan for posting the photo, which was taken while at the New York Toy Fair this week:

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

Now we are no closer to finding out what the film is about considering that only an announcement trailer has been released. But these toys might give us a hint as to who Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones may be facing in the film.

Some are speculating that the photo above is the film’s main villain, who will be played by Neil Casey. If this is indeed the ghost form of the villain, then you would probably recognize that he looks like the team’s logo, just with a few minor additions like the red bow-tie, the teeth.

Again, we are still awaiting the release of the film’s first trailer, which is still just a few weeks away – and yes, they made an announcement this past weekend, so the strategy behind all of this is a bit strange considering most announcement trailers say they would release the full trailer the very next day. I can’t imagine anyone being happy about the fact that we are now seeing the new characters in their toy forms even before we get to see some footage from the trailers or clip.

The first Ghostbusters trailer drops March 3. Sony will release the film on July 15.
