Sony released a new Ghostbusters Blu-ray remastered from a 4K source. While the new Blu-ray doesn't have any new features, the new transfer is considerably better than the previous Blu-ray, and the earlier DVD releases. The coloration and grain have been improved greatly making it worthwhile for anyone with a 1080P TV.
High-Def Digest has a great review of the new release, including comparison shots comparing it to the old version. The difference in many of the effects shots is night and day. DoBlu also has a great reivew with more screenshots here.
Note that while many sites call this a 4K Release (intended for viewing on a Ultra HD 4K TV) this is in fact just a 1080P Blu-ray. Normally we wouldn't bother with a release like this, but the transfer has been redone and is by far the best copy you can get.
Just got official word that the Heritage Ecto-1 is a go. This 1:18 scale diecast Ecto-1 will be very similar to the model that was released last year. It will be a little less detailed, but is nearly half the price of the previous model. Judging from the photo, it is possible the lightbars also have LEDs (something the original model did not)... but we do not yet have official details on that. Release will be at the end of September, just in time for Halloween!
The Ecto-1 is featured in the original Ghostbusters movie and is based on a 1959 Miller-Meteor Cadillac limo-style ambulance. This 1:18 scale, die-cast Hot Wheels Heritage Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Vehicle is a must for dedicated Ghostbusters fans!

Help a Ghostbusters fan franchise make the largest charitable donation in site history! Kevin Henry of the Denver Ghostbusters and Colorado Movie Cars has been working with haunted house attractions in Denver to use his Ecto Magnum to raise money for the Children's Hospital Colorado. This past October his group raised $9,160 for the charity and they will be presenting the check to the hospital next week. Before they do that, they would really like to see the number donated hit $10,000 or more. They can't do that without your help.
To thank fans for the extra donations they are offering for a limited time a Colorado flag styled GB patch with every $10 donation. Right now they are approximately $600 away from $10,000, but time is running out.
This will easily be one of the largest donations ever made by a Ghostbusters fan group, so let's make it a special one!
