Ghost Figure: Finger Pop Fiends an action figure which is part of Kenners The Real Ghostbusters Toy's line.
Interestingly enough, while the packaging for the toys doesn't suggest it, the "Action Toy Guide" for spring 1990 suggests that they are Mini Ghosts. Also on the back of American wave either cards the toys were pictured with Mini Ghosts: Mini Goopers, Mini Traps, and Mini Shooter (also Green Ghost with Proton Pack too). However, in the second case they are not actually noted as Mini Ghosts, just pictured with them.

- The term "Finger Pop" comes from a previously released toy made of foam called "Finger Pops", which were also released by Kenner in 1979.
