SDCC: Ghostbusters 101. Some comics, cool toys and maybe something more.

Ghostbusters 101 is IDW Comic’s way of bringing the separate universes of the original movies and the 2016 reboot together which is something that fans had wanted. It was a series that launched this spring to excellent reviews, and another series is on its way. The big tease at SDCC is that there may be a film in the works based on this as Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman said how enamored he was with the writing of the comic series. The 35th anniversary of the original film is only two years away and we may be getting something big at that time. We don’t know what, but something is coming and it sounds bigger than the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

Coming soon is the sequel to the 2014 Ghostbusters/TMNT crossover comic along with some pretty cool looking action figures. Each turtle wears the Ghostbusters uniform and has their face molded to resemble the corresponding Ghostbuster.

And finally a toy for the big boys and girls: The Blitzway 1/6 Scale Ecto 1. It lights up, you can play with the doors. Blitzway (and their parent company Toyark) have not said if it makes noise or not, and they haven’t said a word about price. I expect it’s going to be a lot.
