On a seperate page on the Sony website, the above image is used for the upcoming UMD release of Ghostbusters for the PSP. The first image seen used the same cover as the original DVD release, but this new cover is the same as the upcoming DVD, 2-disc box set, which makes a tad more sense – however, until Sony gets it’s wires uncrossed and picks a single cover, it’s hard to say for certain if this is the actual cover going to be used.
Thanks to my buddy Toren for the original sketch of a silly idea. Like I said, sometimes the ideas in my head need to be let out.
Randy Falk at NECA was kind enough to confirm that Dancing Slimer is dancing his way into stores as I type this. He also confirmed that the GB theme Slimer wiggles to was specially recorded for the toy, as speculated. You can blame Huey Lewis I guess.
Simpsons / Futurama artist Bill Morrison GB sketch for ghosthead Dr. J. You can check out the full version here.
While a hard shelf date hasn’t been announced (July is as specific as it gets) at least one of NECA’s Dancing Slimer figures has made it out into the real world (suggesting that the wiggly toy could be in stores any time now.) One ebay auction for the slimer has appeared, and unlike the usual spate of pre-orders disguised as auctions, this listing actually has video footage of the dancing spud. As it seems to take forever to load on the auction page (and as not to put any unfair stress on their bandwidth) you can download the clip from PC. Please, if you’re going to want to watch it more than once, right-click to download the file onto your local machine.
The song is a little hard to hear, but it doesn’t sound like the Ray Parker Jr. version. It doesn’t actually sound like any version, which may mean it was produced specifically for the toy. The video also provides a nice look at the packaging, which is simlar to the open box the Stay Puft 18″ figure came in.
