Ghostbusters/ Transformers Crossover Toy Revealed, Ectotron! – Toy Fair 2019

We have been posting up a storm this week about all of the amazing reveals ahead of NY Toy Fair 2019, but I think Hasbro just won the event. In an unbelievable crossover of epic proportions, bigger than the Tunguska explosion of 1908, Hasbro has revealed a mash-up toy combining Transformers with… Ghostbusters!

Revealed by io9 earlier this morning, Named “Ectotron”, this Transformer comes equipped with his own proton pack and paranormal activity-detecting goggles. He also has a makeshift jumpsuit color scheme once transformed.

According to the original article, Ectotron transforms from a seven-inch long replica of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 vehicle to a robot in about 22 steps.

As if getting a new movie wasn’t enough, now we get a transformer too!

A non-transforming Slimer figure is also included, although the scale of this is not known at this time.

Ectotron will also get his own official origin story from IDW Publishing. A brand new 5-part comic series from creative team Erik Burnham & Dan Schoening, the team responsible for the great GB comics out now from IDW, will begin in June 2019.

I was not expecting to make an announcement like this on my site today, but wow! I’m not a big Transformers fan, but this is an instant purchase for me.

This is not the first crossover toy for Ghostbusters, as Playmates previously did a mash-up combining the busters with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This toy will be available in early June for $40 piece and will be exclusively available in-store at GameStop, although the original article also says you can get it online. Pre-orders will start tomorrow at GameStop’s siteHasbroPulse.com, and EB Games Canada.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of both the TRANSFORMERS brand & the original Ghostbusters film.

There have been a lot of reveals leading up to NY Toy Fair. Some of the highlights so far have included Hasbro teasing us with a first glimpse of their new Overwatch figuresDiamond Select purchasing Gentle GiantMcFarlane Toys picking up the DC Comics LicenseHasbro’s “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures” figures,  Mezco’s new One:12 Captain Marvel figureMego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.

Stay tuned this weekend as our exclusive NY Toy Fair 2019 coverage begins on Saturday!

Ernie Hudson Reaches Out To Jason Reitman To Talk Ghostbusters 3

With a new Ghostbusters movie slated for 2020, everyone is trying to figure out who will be in it. Ernie Hudson got all of our hopes up when he claimed everyone was “all on board”, but it turned out that meant support more than it did a confirmation that the original stars were returning to the franchise.

While visiting the set of Spectrum original series “L.A.’s Finest”, the OG Winston Zeddemore was asked by Slashfilm if he had any updates on appearing in the upcoming Ghostbusters 3.

Here is what he had to say:

“I reached out to Jason,” Hudson said. “I’ve talked to Jason. I’ve also had a conversation with Ivan [Reitman] just to congratulate him. They confirmed that the movie is definitely being made, because you know there’s always been rumors with Ghostbusters the last 30 years. What that’ll look like, they did not share.”

“Nobody’s offered me a job, but the reason I wanted to reach out to Jason, I remember him as a little kid on the set of Ghostbusters,” Hudson said. “The fact that he’s stepping into that, I think the fans have been wanting it so no matter what happens, I know it’s going to be a great movie. I really respect him as a filmmaker. Obviously, I’d love to be a part of it but that hasn’t so far presented itself. I know that the movie will be good.”

Hudson did not get any tasty morsels to share with the public about the film unfortunately, but he seems very optimistic about the entire project.

“He didn’t tell me,” Hudson said. “It wasn’t a long conversation but that’s good. Whatever they do, I’m glad they’re doing something. The Ghostbusters fans, I go anywhere in the world, somebody knows I’m there, they’ll come by in their Ghostbuster outfits. For them, I’m very happy it’s happening.”

Ghostbusters 2020 or Ghostbusters 3 (because you know who you’re gonna’ call, but not the name of the new movie) will open in theaters on July 10, 2020.

IDW Celebrates the Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary with Weekly Comic Book Event in April

Are you troubled by strange noises in the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family actually seen a spook, specter, or ghost? If the answer is yes, then four fearless Ghostbuster teams are here to serve your supernatural elimination needs, courtesy of IDW!

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, IDW Publishing will release a different Ghostbusters comic weekly in April, each focusing on a different team, including the original “Prime” team from the classic film, the Real Ghostbusters of 1980s cartoon fame, the all-female team that “Answered the Call” in 2016, and the next generation of Extreme Ghostbusters!

“Since 2008, IDW has published an amazing library of ‘Busters from multiple dimensions and times, written and illustrated by a diverse crew of mega-talented creators… so what better way is there to celebrate this special anniversary than by showing off the eclectic cast from Ghostbusters projects far and wide?” says Senior Editor Tom Waltz. “Fans, old and new, can again expect the best of the best in full four-color, SLIMERRIFIC glory!”

IDW Editor-in-Chief John Barber says, “Ghostbusters has been an important part of IDW Publishing for more than a decade, and thanks to everybody at Sony and Ghost Corps, it’s been an amazing eleven years. With Ghostbusters hitting such a milestone anniversary, it’s time to celebrate every facet of the team’s history… and to get ready for everything that’s coming next!”

April 2019’s Ghostbusters one-shot specials include:
