Playmobil expands Ghostbusters range

Image

Following a Twitter response earlier in the month where toymaker Playmobil hinted that there could be more Ghostbusters products in the future, this news was confirmed during this weekend's New York Comic Con, where the company unveiled the next sets in their Ghostbusters collection, based on Ghostbusters II and The Real Ghostbusters.

The figures inspired by The Real Ghostbusters will come with an assortment of vehicles, much like some of the sets released by Kenner back in the 1980s. It has been noted that the Ghostbusters II and Real Ghostbusters sets will form a single second wave, which is believed to span eight sets in total, rather than second and third waves respectively in the licenced range.
This may mean that fans hoping for figures of Vigo the Carpathian, or the cartoon's notable villains may be left disappointed.

The new sets are expected to appear in stores in 2018.

Image

There have been numerous Ghostbusters items auctioned by Prop Store over the years, and in a case of déjà vu that reminiscent of Groundhog Day, the auction site has listed a second Peter Venkman jumpsuit, mere days after auctioning a Venkman jumpsuit from the original Ghostbusters.

Like the suit from the 1984 film, the Ghostbusters II suit is estimated to reach between £6,000.00 – £8,000.00 ($7,728.86 - $10,305.14), with the auction taking place on the 26th of September.

Original RGB animation reel discovered

Image

Prior to the release of the Time Life DVD collection in 2008, Ghostheads had only seen the original promo/pilot animation of The Real Ghostbusters in segments, and extremely low quality. With the DVD set, fans were treated to an uncut version of the animation, however the quality was still somewhat fuzzy as it was a transfer of a cassette recording.

9 years later and Ghostbusters fan Robert Barbieri has unveiled some exciting news: an original film reel for the pilot/promo animation has been discovered, and as the screenshot above shows, the quality and clarity it will provide is a major step up from what we've previously seen.

According to Robert, the reel has already been scanned in and is being digitally restored in preparation for streaming on Facebook at a future date.
