323 Days... Who Ya Gonna Call?
As revealed at San Diego Comic Con back in June, the Ghostbusters will be joining the likes of Batman, Gandalf, Wildstyle, Back to the Future, Doctor Who and many more in Lego's upcoming videogame, Lego Dimensions.
Similar to games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, Dimensions allows players to choose characters with an assortment of powers to complete the levels in the game, with the added benefit of being able to actually build the figures, vehicles and accessories after purchase.
The sets announced are:
Ghostbusters Level Pack - Featuring Peter Venkman, Ecto-1 and a Ghost Trap.
Ghostbusters Fun Pack - Featuring Slimer and Slime Shooter.
Ghostbusters Fun Pack - Featuring Stay Puft and a Terror Dog.
As noted from before, this version of Peter Venkman features what appears to be a custom hairpiece, and extra detailing (including the no-ghost logo) on the arms, making this figure unique compared to the version packaged with the Lego Ideas Ecto-1 set.
Lego Dimensions is released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on the 27th of September. No date has been given yet for when the Ghostbusters sets will be released.

It was announced by Erik Brunham and Dan Schoening today on Twitter that the Ghostbusters Ongoing Comic Series will be back for installment #3 in 2016! In addition to the ongoing series, there will also be new Ghostbusters Annuals that will appear in the Fall of 2015 (and presumably each fall after that). Joining Erik and Dan will be Luis Antonio Delgado and several other artists contributing artwork and special covers.
Ghostbusters Fans will be carrying both the annual and ongoing series as soon as they are announced.
In addition to those, a brand new Book was just released called "Mass Hysteria", and is now available in the GBFans Shop. Mass Hysteria features the last TWENTY issues of the "New" Ghostbusters series (Issue #1 - #20) all in one awesome hardcover book. A great way to catch up on the whole series without tracking down all the individual issues.
Grab your copy of Mass Hysteria today from the GBFans Shop, or your local comic book retailer:

Just unveiled at San Diego Comic Con! Diamond Select Toys has previewed more figures from their Ghostbusters "Select" figure line. Seven new figures were shown to join the three that were previously shown at Toy Fair. The new figures are:
-Gozer the Gozerian
-Zuul / Dana Barrett
-Slimer (not pictured)
These figures join Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore and Louis Tully from Series 1, available here. There will be twelve figures in the set, so we're still waiting to hear on the remaining two! This marks the first time there has been a movie style Janine Melnitz figure, and only the second time a Gozer the Gozerian figure has been produced.
