2019 is the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, and the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters 2. Plenty is happening to mark this special occassion, like the Ghostbusters Fan Fest in June, and lots of merchandise tie-ins. One that has slipped under the radar was a Transformer toy – no, not Ectotron – that had not been confirmed as being an actual product. Now, we have proof and confirmation that this thing is real!
TFCLUB变形金刚联盟 Weibo has the scoop on this repaint of the Masterpiece edition Optimus Prime, decked out in Ghostbusters colors. The MP-10 GB Optimus comes with a trailer, which supposedly can fit Ectotron inside.
This special Optimus also includes a ghost-trap accessory that can be mounted on top or Roller is included.
Plus, it also has a Slimer figure, similar to the one that comes with Ectotron, except this one is fully painted.
The alt mode is mostly white with the trailer decorated with a red stripe and a Ghostbusters logo, and to top it all green slime splashes over it. The trailer also features the phrases “Call us 555-2568” and “We’re ready to believe you” on the side, and we hope you got that reference.
We also have a look at the packaging, showcasing the figure in truck mode and labeled as “MP-1GB Optimus Prime Ecto 35 Edition”.
The figure is expected to be officially unveiled at SDCC 2019, but it better not be sold exclusively there!
The little green spud is back as part of series 10 of Diamond Select’s “Real Ghostbusters” action figures. Packaged with three heads and another part of the firehouse diorama, Slimer looks just like his cartoon counter part, and is a worthy addition to your Ghostbusters collection.

It’s slime time! In this video, we unbox and review the Playmobil Slimer “Ghostbusters” playset, which includes Slimer and a hot dog vendor. This playset is a call back to a scene from the first Ghostbusters movie, one that can now finally be immortalized in toy form. Is it worth adding to your collection? Check out the video to find out!
Who ya’ gonna call? Apparently, Playmobil, since they just made one of the best firehouse playsets since the original Kenner line.
We got to spend some quality time with all of the new playsets from Playmobil from one of our most beloved movie franchises of all time, “Ghostbusters”, and it did not disappoint. Frankly, it was hard to walk away after getting to play with the massive firehouse, and the Ecto-1 that lights up and makes the siren noise. Somehow I didn’t try to walk away with the entire table, but here is what saw so that you too can marvel at this beauty!
ICYMI here are all three of the figure reviews from the third wave of Diamond Select’s ‘Ghostbusters’ line. This video includes my opinions on Quittin’ Time Ray Stantz, Janine Melnitz, and Slimer. This was not the strongest wave for me since the inception of this series, so is it still worth picking up? Check out the video review above to find out!
One-half of the most famous line in the entire movie, Slimer joins Diamond Select’s ‘Ghostbusters’ line as part of wave three. How does onionhead stack up with the rest of the series, and is he good enough to join your collection or should he be left in the containment unit?
