Slimed Hero Figure: Winston Zeddmore an action figure which is part of Kenners The Real Ghostbusters Toy Line's Slimed Heroes set, which uses thermochromic paint. Based on The Real Ghostbusters animated series Winston Zeddemore. For most markets, this was the last version of Winston released by Kenner.

The Slimed Heroes group also included Egon, Peter, Ray, and Louis.

This group once again used the classic mold designs and also reused the proton pack designs. This is the first line other than the Classic Heroes to not include a Janine Melnitz in the lineup. This group is noted for have consistency issues with plastic colors.

Jocsa which was a company that re-released Real Ghostbusters toys for Argentina made an exclusive line of Slimed Heroes, which had water squirting from the proton gun to change the color of the ghost instead of the Ghostbuster.
