Vinyl Sugar Ghostbusters Figures

I cannot wait for these guys to hit the shelves in June!

As a fan of Funko, these things are going to be a great addition!

Ghostbusters Trading Cards? Is it 1991 again!?

If there's something strange in your neighborhood, there might be a reason for it. 2015 Cryptozoic Ghostbusters trading cards is the most comprehensive set to date to cover the classic franchise -- not that there's much out there. Not only does the product cover the films, but it branches into the larger Ghostbusters world brought on by the Saturday morning cartoon and the recent IDW comics.
The base set has 63 cards covering the movies. Printing Plates parallels are included. These were used in the production of the set. Each is a one-of-a-kind for the four colors used in the printing process.
The chase includes both autographs and sketch cards. A list of signers has not yet been announced.
The Real Ghostbusters cartoon is featured on an Animation Cel insert set.

New York Toy Fair News 2015

With the recent news of Melissa McCarthy stomping her fat ass into my childhood, I took a vacation. While I have been away, tons of merch news for Ghostbusters has been announced.

First, this Slimer Pizza Cutter happened. Amazing and I just happen to be in the market for a new 'za cutter.

As if that wasn't enough, they then announced the new figures from Diamond Select. So cool and more detailed than the Mattel counter parts:

But that isn't what I am most excited about... no, no... it's the blind boxed Titans that are coming out. More Vinz love and also Dana gets some nods. Not to mention a terror dog that isn't over $100 to collect...
