Diamond Select to produce more Real Ghostbusters figures

Image
With wave 10 of Diamond Select Toys' Ghostbusters figure range now released, speculation was rife over whether the company would be producing more in the future, and what part of the franchise they'd be based on. In response to a tweet from last Monday enquiring who'd have the rights to produce figures based on The Real Ghostbusters in the future, a member of staff from the toy company confirmed:
We're making more!
Details about the next wave of figures are currently under wraps, but it's likely we may see something at San Diego Comic Con later this year. Stay tuned for developments as they surface.

Hasbro, Sony and IDW team up to unveil Ectotron and "Ghosts of Cybertron"

Image
Certain to be the community event of the summer, toy manufacturer Hasbro, comic publisher IDW, and Sony Pictures have teamed up to give us not just one Transformers/Ghostbusters product, but two.

Kicking things off will be Hasbro's production release of Autobot Ectotron, an Ectomobile that's more than meets the eye.

The release of the figure will be followed-up by a previously-"top secret" project, which has been revealed to be a five-issue origin story for Ectotron, Ghosts of Cybertron. The miniseries, written and illustrated by the Ghostbusters: Ongoing team Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Delgado - will see the Ghostbusters and Autobots fight the Decepticons due to paranormal circumstances that'll link Earth and Cybertron.

Ectotron is expected to go on sale for $49.99 this summer, exclusive to GameStop, EB Games and HasbroPulse.com, with a projected release date of this Summer.
Ghosts of Cybertron will go on sale this June.

•Transparent Slimer with Hot Dogs - Exclusive to Walmart
