The Ernie Hudson celebrity doll portrays him as Winston Zeddmore from the 1984 Ghostbuster movie. The doll was made by Mattel in 2010 and released as part of the 25th Anniversary collection. Mattel released the original Ghostbusters figures in 2009 and early 2010. They followed in 2011 with twelve inch Ghostbusters II dolls in sets of two.
The Celebrity Doll Museum has the following Ghostbusters action figures in the collection.
The Ernie Hudson doll comes wearing a one piece beige cotton jump suit with details like sewn on zipper pulls on the front and pockets, Zedmore name tag, air hose outlet built in, Ghostbuster decal on the arm, and a Velcro closure up the back and shirt cuffs. Removable gray microfiber elbow pads/arm bands. A detailed white utility belt with black plastic miniature closures with black and silver doodads and holders is around the waist. Black plastic work boots and black gloved hands come on the action figure—both are removable. A spare set of ungloved hands comes in the accessories locker. Underneath the jumpsuit is a black cotton short sleeved t-shirt with a Velcro closure in the back.
The Ghostbusters proton backpack and blaster comes with 3 LR44 batteries installed to power the rotating red lights that go on and off on the back when you push the button. The green backpack straps are miniature versions of real working plastic black buckles and nylon green strapping. The detail on the backpack is both complex and astounding. Even the colored wires have wire type labels printed on them.
The accessory locker includes a ghost trap with spring loaded working lid. Press a button on the back and the top pops open. It includes the particle accelerator, wand, walkie-talkie, a set of bare hands, two rolled up blue prints, a plastic manila envelope and newspaper with the Ghostbusters job advertisement and portable trap.
The Hudson figure is articulated at the ankles, knees, hips, waist, shoulders, neck (tilts and turns), elbows, and wrists. The plastic doll display box came enclosed in a white cardboard outer box.
