Betcha "Muncher" will eat the Wreckto before the film is done.

OH!

Great job spotting that!

I didn’t see the Ecto-1 license plate. Just figured they need a way to display the classic Ecto-1 before retiring it and showing us a new version.

To anyone who is on the fence about preordering the neutrona wand, if you buy it on the Hasbro site and ship to the US it is eligible for free shipping. Mine is $108 after tax. Also they don’t charge your payment until it’s ready to ship, so you can buy now and save up until September.

I also read that you can put a $5 deposit down on that Spengler wand at your neighborhood Game Stop. That would be such a lovely display piece, and it has a slime blower mode!

I wondered all along if there was going to be an epic death of the Ecto-1, ala USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) in Star Trek III, and of course the DeLorean in Back to the Future, Part III. I would've preferred a different car altogether to preclude the discontinuity with 1A, but maybe there's a surprise waiting about that. The fact that they even bothered keeping all the pieces of 1A is reassuring to me.

Maaaaan, I don’t want to watch Ecto-1 die. I trust Jason, but dang.

What happened to your avatar?? I always loved that. It reminded me of the comic book version of Jerry Lewis as a GB.

I also wonder if this toy has some connection to the ghost at the Universal Studios attraction. I remember an Instagram post stating that it will be a ghost in the new movie.

Isn't it a yellow version of Muncher eating a bumper?

If you want 1 of the Spengler wands better get one now before they're on eBay or GB sale pages on FB for $500.

Don't get hung up on the muncher art work. All we know, and right now is still nothing he only eats part of the Ecto.

I've been adamant about the possibility of Ecto being restored.

A succesfull bust in a middle of a nowhere town with old equipment is going to attract the og's attention right damn quick.

So far the new toys show Ecto in her former glory without the rust.

The cars destruction is fifty, fifty I admit. But being the focal point of advertising so far I really doubt it.

The kids probably consider the car their inheritance at this point. It's going to get some TLC.

I'm leaning toward Thole from the RGB episode "Egon's Ghost" -- but I don't think that's quite it either.

Image

It reminds me of some creature design from the '80s, but I can't put my finger on it.

What has three eyes, horns and is vaguely terror dog adjacent? Is this a new character?

They're really pushing Muncher coughing up the Ecto-1's license plate in their artwork.

Slimer seems oddly comfortable being puked up. There's a dirty joke there somewhere.

It could also be where they find the plate in the first place.

Perhaps the first encounter with Muncher he gets away, but not before he throws up the plate (and perhaps the engine) so they can fix it.

Ten bucks says says Slimer's in that trap the kids find.

Muncher eats it and he tries to find the og's if he's not pissed off about being left inside of that box.

What if Muncher is the evolution of Slimer being told he needed a bit more iron in his diet?

Padum Tish.



(I think it's Muncher trapped in there).

This explains the chomp out of the stop sign we saw in the leaked set photos.

Muncher appears to eat metal, much like the class 4 feeders from the Extreme Ghostbusters episode "Back in the saddle."

Image
Just noticed the stopsign Jason posted is in his stomach.

Good catch, Groschopf!

Did anyone pick up how it says "adapter"? For What? a Proton Pack?!

"Includes: wand, adapter, display stand, and instructions."

Honestly, I kinda zoned out of this thread for a while.

Was there confirmation it's Spengler's house in GB3 before (besides us guesses) or is the wand being called Spengler's the first confirmation? Or maybe the better question is, is this the first time the Spengler name has been brought up officially in connection to Afterlife?

You guys keep saying slime blower but I don't see how that works with the currant configuration.

The slime would gum up the rifle unless there's going to be an attachment similar to the video game.
