SDCC 2011: It’s a trap… video! (two of them, actually)
The con must go on, but video of Mattel’s upcoming (October 2011, same as the PKE meter last year… so don’t expect it until November) ghost trap has hit the web.
Ernie Cline risked life or limb (read: stopped ogling the Back to the Future Delorean for a few minutes to let a Mattel rep convince him he needs one) and sent us some video. The camera was vertical, so is tipped onto the side on YouTube, but it’s 720p regardless. Big thanks to Ernie for thinking of us.
As well, GBFans has a much longer video that gets into some real nitty-gritty (Tape measure. Not kidding) and also gets in much closer, so be sure to check out both videos. Tip of the hat to Andy of the SoCalGBs for cornering a Mattel rep for 8 minutes!
And it’s short, but Mattel’s senior brand honcho Scott Neitlich, walked G4′s Blair Butler through some of their SDCC reveals, including the ghost trap (and a fantastic close-up of Vigo’s head) – Go to their page so you can watch it in HD. (thanks for the heads up, Steven)
