It’s pretty simple – Time-Life is having a Memorial Day sale and part of the sale is that you can get the RGB DVD set for $126, instead of the usual $180! They’re also offering free shipping (not sure if it stacks with the DVD sale)! Regardless, not even Amazon is beating this deal right now (they want $173 for it, plus shipping.) So now’s the time to buy!

“Nighty-night, Winston!” Over 20 years later, those words still fill me with dread, and my name’s not even Winston. But say it in the raspy voice of the Sandman from the Real Ghostbusters cartoon, preferably in a pitch-black room, and it’ll scare anybody. The Sandman is part of the second wave of Real Ghostbusters Minimates two-packs, exclusively available at Toys “R” Us in September, and it’s an all-star line-up:
– Peter Venkman & Winston Zeddemore
– Stay Puft (Good) & Louis (in Ghostbusters outfit)
– Evil Slimer & Sandman (TRU-exclusive)
– Logo Ghost & Killerwatt (TRU-exclusive)
And if you have a comic book or specialty store in your area, head there for the exclusive box set, which includes Peter, Winston and exclusive angry and casual versions of Stay-Puft and Louis, respectively. And be sure to pick up the first series of RGB two-packs and box set, in stores now!
