In an update on our previous story, toy manufacturer Playmobil has been showcasing it's new Ecto-1A set and 6-inch upscaled Ghostbusters figures at New York Comic Con.

Those already familiar with the Playmobil Ghostbusters series are unlikely to be disappointed, as the reproduction of the car appears to be to the same high standard as its predecessor.

Prices and release dates are still yet to be confirmed. More photos of the sets can be seen via the gallery at

Playmobil to release Ecto-1A and 6inch figures


It's been just shy of a year since Playmobil announced the first expansion to it's Ghostbusters product line, and fans will once again be treated to more sets based on the boys in grey in the near future.

A scan from a German copy of the Playmobil catelogue has revealed that the toy company will be producing a replica of the Ecto-1A, a box set containing all four Ghostbusters, and a set of individually-packaged 6inch tall (twice the normal size) versions of the four Ghostbusters - similar to Funko Playmobil figures released a few years ago. The figures and car are expected to be released in May 2019.

Details are limited at this time, we will update this story when more becomes available.

Eaglemoss to produce "Build the Ghostbusters Ectomobile"


Collectibles company Eaglemoss has published a website featuring a new "Build the Ghostbusters Ectomobile" collection, similar to a replica of the Back to the Future DeLorean previously released by the company.

The details of the model/collection are as follows:
•1/8 scale - 31½ inches/80cm in length - 9.9 inches/25cm in width
•The first issue is priced at £1.99*, the second at £4.99, the third issue (and each subsequent) will be priced at £8.99 - The issues will be released on a rate of four per month.
•Illuminated lightbars, spotlights, beacon, headlights and taillights
•Opening passenger doors and hood
•Working windows
•Removable Proton Pack gurney
•Colour magazine with each issue, detailing the car and the people responsible for making the films.

There will also be additional gifts for subscribers to the collection:
•Free additional issue (with first installment)
•Magazine binder (with first installment)
•Ecto-1 replica licence plate (with third installment)
•Ecto-1 baseball cap (with sixth installment)
•T-Shirt (with eigth installment)
•Mirrored display base (with tenth installment) - Which can be upgraded to include a transparent cover

It should be noted that DeLorean kit from Eaglemoss was estimated to reach a final completion cost of around £1,168, placing the construction at roughly 32-months on the four-issue-per-month cycle. Fans looking to collect this series should prepare for a similar cost and gestation period. This model is also based on the car's appearance following the 2008 restoration.

An official date has not yet been released for the Build the Ghostbusters Ectomobile collection. GBFans will provide an update when it becomes available.
*Details on whether the collection will become available in the United States aren't presently known, however it is likely it will be advertised at a later date, like the company's Star Trek titles.

New Ghostbusters costume coming to

Image has posted an update to its website featuring listings for a new Premium Ghostbusters costume, with versions designed for adults and children.

The premium costume appears to include the following*:
•Jumpsuit - A fair reproduction of the Nomex flightsuit, minus the pocket on the left arm.
•Velcro-fastened elbow pads
•Embroidered logo patch
•Embroidered nametag - with a selection of the four Ghostbusters available.
•Webbing belt
•Proton Pack with detachable Proton Gun.

The costume is similar to the Grand Heritage costume sold by Rubies two years ago, however the Proton Pack has been simplified compared to the earlier effort, whilst the rest of the costume itself has been expanded upon - featuring more elements to recreate the iconic look.

The adult costume is marketed to retail at $99.99 (£88.99), the child's costume is marketed to retail at $79.99**, a substantial saving on the Grand Heritage's current $299.99 pricetag.

In addition to being marketed towards the United States market, the costume will also be available to the United Kingdom via

**The UK site for HalloweenCostumes didn't have a listing for the children's costume at the time of writing.
