Ghostbuster 2 Egon & Titantic Ghost

Let's get this out of the way, I don't care about the Egon figure. I've already got an Egon minimate and don't need Egon in another uniform to make me happy. In fact it feels like a waste of an opportunity to get another minimate I might want, but this is how he was packaged so I'll live with it.

But what I do want is the Titantic ghost. Based on the one scene in Ghostbusters 2 when the ghost of the Titantic and its many victims (that sounds like the Titantic attacked them) finally dock in New York. The Captain wasn't one of the ghosts seen, but it certainly seems likely he was there. (Incidentally Cheech Marin was in that scene, with the one liner "Well, better late than never." Oh just watch.)

So you want to know why I want this minimate even though the ghost never appeared in Ghostbusters 2? It's beause that means they made a minimate of the ghost of a Real Person: Captain Edward John Smith, for no other reason than the fact that he's the most recognizable Titantic person they could come up with.

That's insane. So yeah, want that minimate.
