Walter Peck is an out-and-out douchebag. He has no redeeming qualities and gives weasels a bad name. He also works for the Environmental Protection Agency who, while they serve a vital role in our country, tend to have a bit more zeal than is strictly necessary and have time and again impeded our country’s progress with overbearing authority and a tendency to cater to loud special interest groups.
Clearly, Peck is a great villain; and William Atherton played him with a gusto rarely seen outside of old episodes of Doctor Who. Because of this, I broke my vow to only purchase the overpriced actual Ghostbusters and ordered myself a Walter Peck figure when Mattycollector put him up for sale. Was he worth it?
First Glance: As with the other Ghostbusters figures, the first thing you notice is the head sculpt. When a series is comprised almost entirely of shared parts, that’s kind of all you need to take in initially. I’m not so sure about this one. Maybe he’ll look better out of the package.
His suit is a whole new sculpt, which is kind of a shock. The Ghostbusters seem scaled a bit smaller than the DCUC figures, so I guess they had no choice. It looks great and matches his screen likeness – better than the face, anyway.

That’s what I heard.
