Ecto-Glow Hero Figure: Peter Venkman 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 Peter Venkman.

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 Egon, Ray, Louis, and Winston.

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.
