Classic Hero Figure: Winston Zeddmore an action figure which is part of Kenners The Real Ghostbusters Toy Line's (Classic) Hero set. Based off The Real Ghostbusters animated series Winston Zeddemore. Like all releases in the Kenner line, they misspelled his name and left out a "E", however the reissue in 2020 corrects it. The toy went through three print runs in 1986/87, as well as a planned reissue in 2020 by Hasbro.

The Classic Heroes group also included Peter, Ray, and Egon.
