This 3″ blind-boxed collection features the returning legendary quartet of Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore plus familiar faces such as Louis Tully, Janine, Dana and, of course, Slimer! As if that wasn’t enough there’s the upgraded Ecto-1 as well as new villains in the form of Nunzio Scoleri, Janosz Poha and the terrifying Vigo The Carpathian!
Each figure is 3” blind-boxed and certain pieces come with a character-specific accessory.
PLUS: 4 hidden chase figures for you to hunt and collect!
Last November we talked aboutTitan Merchandise and their basically promotional art for what their upcoming Ghostbusters “mini” vinyl figures would look like. I had never seen an actual Titan Merchandise vinyl figure, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Which wouldn’t have mattered anyway as expectations are more then met! Continue reading →
Previews World has shared a couple of pics on their Twitter account of Vinyl Sugar’s upcoming Ghostbusters Vinyl Idolz. Still no sign (or word about) of a Winston Vinyl Idolz. Should we find out the info, we’ll have an update.
Tomorrow is the annual New York Toy Fair. Where our business associates and other companies within the toy industry will be displaying their wares. Cryptozoic Entertainment made a real splash this week with their upcoming table games.
Sugar Vinyl (Twitter) teased three out hopefully four Ghostbusters that will be on display this weekend. We’ll be talking more about new Ghostbusters merchandise this weekend and next as our schedules allow.
Funko, a slightly smaller evil corporation and Vinyl Sugar, (Twitter) a large evil corporation got together to come up with Vinyl Idolz. What is a Vinyl Idolz? Are one of their employees from JerZey? 😀
From Vinyl Sugar
Vinyl Sugar is the illegitimate love child between Funko and some of the best free-wheeling designers from the back streets of London, the boutiques of Harajuku, and the galleries in NYC. Vinyl Sugar – because you crave it!
With the first teaser image Vinyl Sugar shows us a doc, a dude, and a buster. Specifically Dr. Venkman. All 3(D) figures appear to have a caricature type look. Which certainly works well for Dr. Venkman.
We don’t know when they’ll be available for retail. They should be on display at next month’s New York Toy Fair.
Titan Merchandise, a collectible company who makes vinyl mini figures posted a teaser image letting ghostheads know 12 (yes 12) GHOSTBUSTERS™ vinyl mini figures were coming to add to your collection on May 31, 2015. Continue reading →
The week of October 9, 2014 the Javits Center is hosting New York Comic Con. Per usual there will be con exclusives. One of them from Funko is a variant of their Egon Spengler Movie Pop! and ECTO-1 Pop! that comes with Winston Zeddemore. As can be seen the NYCC Ghostbusters Pop! has Pop! Egon and Pop! ECTO-1 slimed in places. The artwork also appears different from the standard ECTO-1/Winston Pop!
What seems unusual is that unless we’re talking about Ghostbusters II,™ the character of Egon Spengler isn’t normally the one who gets slimed. Peter and Ray, for sure. This “combo” Pop! surely is unique. It’s possible Funko in a way wanted to honor Harold Ramis, who of course perfectly played Dr. Egon Spengler in both Ghostbusters™ and Ghostbusters II.™ Either that or someone at Funko wanted to do something different.
After all Funko had already done the SDCC slimed Pop! Peter Venkman with Pop! Slimer. Along with the SDCC “marshmallow covered” Pop! Ghostbusters. If the Pop! ECTO-1 was always going to be part of the NYCC exclusives, I would have done a marshmallow (different white or use a slightly dark outline) covered ECTO-1 and include a marshmallow covered Pop! Ray Stantz.
What do you think of Funko’s decision for a slimed Egon and Ecto-1?
When I could be working on these web sites, I’m checking a popular auction site for Ghostbusters instead. At times its the same new and old collectibles. Their will be times one can come across a custom item. Such was the case when I saw a slimed version of a Funko Pop Vinyl Peter Venkman.
It wasn’t because I was on this auction site I didn’t post about it sooner. As this auction had ended and I didn’t see this posted on Ghostbusters sites, I wanted to show this artists work.
