Every video game that features cars has inevitably found itself with an Ecto-1 driving around – provided that it was possible. Some games required a person to import a whole 3D model, essentially modding the game to feature the e-mobile. Others wouldn’t let you import squat, but you could “paint” them. I put that in quotes, as the features were very limited.
But here comes Forza – I don’t know if the guy imported the skin or made it in-game, but in either case, it’s a lot of work. Fantastic! True, it’s not, strictly speaking, THE ecto-mobile. But it certain earns the right to call itself AN ecto-mobile.
Thanks to Dan Elektro for the heads up. It’s like all he does is read up on video games all day.
Frightrags.com has just released their kickass Zuul t-shirt (mentioned here previously.) Get your’s now! Before they’re all gone and we all point and laugh at you.
I remember the Ghostbusters 2 game that was originally put out for
the PC most computer systems of the time. I disliked it. A lot. BUT, now there’s an alternative. Park Productions have taken the original gameplay and updated it to use newer graphics, with much more satisfying results. Still a weird little game, but a nice take on an old product. It’s also notable to point out that the new game will run on Mac, PC, and Linux, so no one is left out of the fun.
AJ Quick sent out a note that the GB Props dot Com store is having a sale, PLUS there are new items. So, if you’ve ever said to yourself, “I want to make a prop proton pack replica” then now is your chance to get the same bits and bobs the original prop masters used for the film… cheap!

I very nearly forgot about this – Jason Bischoff dropped me an email to show me the results of a brainstorm he had. Namely, turning a Lobster Johnson action figure (from the Hellboy comic) into an Egon. The results are stark and gritty, not what one would expect in an Egon, but coooool nevertheless. Go here to check out the figure in great detail (plus have a gander at all his other excellent custom figures.) Next up, according to Jason… Slimer!
