Luke’s Toy Store has produced a sheet of water applicable decals (like you get in model kits) that you can apply to Minimate blanks (or old Minimates you don’t mind messing with) to create more Minimatey monsters for your Ghostbusters Minimates to fight!
Ghostbusters Minimates Beware! The Gruesome Ghosts Decal Kit has arrived at Luke’s Toy Store
Luke’s Toy Store is proud to announce the Gruesome Ghosts Minimate Decal Kit! This waterslide decal kit will allow you to create 10 creepy ghosts for your Ghostbusters Minimates to battle. You won’t have to worry about hunting for parts, as most of the ghosts can be made by combining parts from 2 Minimate box sets that are currently available. It is a fun and easy way to expand your Minimate collection. These decals have been designed so that anyone can apply them using only a bowl of water and a sharp scissors or hobby knife. After a little practice you can make a brand new Gruesome Ghost in as little as 10 minutes!

And who wouldn’t – you gutter-minded perv, you.
James Mundy, design artist-for-hire, has posted a series of concept art, including a hand-crafted model, for a Ghostbusters Ecto-3 – a futuristic concept built onto a Hummer chassis. While the vehicle is decaled for a third movie, it is just wishful thinking – beautiful, boxy, aggressive, ghost-bustin’ wishful thinking.
Warning – these are the solicitation blurbs for both comics. Consider them spoilery, if you don’t want to know what’s coming.
GHOSTBUSTERS: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
Written by Rob Williams, art by Diego Jourdan, covers by Jourdan and Nick Runge.
It’s Christmas Eve and the grumpiest man in New York (and that’s saying somethin’) hires the Ghostbusters. Each year he’s visited by spectres who want him to change his ways and he’s had enough. Now Venkman, Ray, Egon and Winston have to proton pack the actual ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. But what does that mean for the spirit of Christmas itself?

Movieweb has a short Q&A with Harold Ramis about a third Ghostbusters film. A lot of it is stuff we’ve heard before, just expounded on. Also, he shoots down a couple of rumours – the third movie will focus on the Mayan calendar and the end-of-the-world and new Ghostbusters to add to the team (everybody is a possibility, nobody is signed.)
Can you share anything about Dr. Egon’s life in 2012? Is he having a hard time dealing with the effects of the Mayan Calendar? Has he found love? Does he have a kid?
Harold Ramis: I had two initial first instincts. One was that Egon had become a shaved head Buddhist monk. That is not going to happen. The thing that I pitched for my character is that he’s been living in Geneva, and he works for the Institute of Imaginary Science. The work we are doing doesn’t require any conceptual, intellectual, special, or mathematical models for what we are doing. Even we don’t know what we are doing. It’s that theoretical.
He also attributes to the popularity of the franchise and the current possibility of a third movie to Dan Aykroyd, which was not only classy, but absolutely correct.
It’s Dan Aykroyd. He has been keeping this idea alive. This is his original concept, and he’s wanted to do this for a while. He even wrote a spec script years ago. The twenty-fifth anniversary came, we had the new Blu-ray, and the videogame release, and people still seem so very excited about this movie. The response from the game was tremendous. Everywhere I went, people were asking about it. I thought, why not? Why can’t there be a Ghostbusters 3? I have to remind people that they didn’t like Ghostbusters 2 very much. But they still seem to want a third one. Finally, Murray said yes. I thought, “Well, we have a good script. Why not?” Ivan Reitman said yes. It came be done. It can happen.
With just over a month until the release of Ghostbusters the video game on PSP, at least according to retail sites like Amazon, Sony has started talking about it officially, with a press release and trailer.
The press release doesn’t say much more than what we already know about the game, though it only speaks to a November release for the PSP game – retailers are listing November 4th (such as Amazon, currently taking pre-orders on the game) and the Atari press site is listing November 3rd, so (shrug).
The interesting bit is the trailer, so here you are;
The game on the PSP looks like a nice port of the PS2 version of the game, as expected, and a nice addition to my small PSP library of games!
Big ups to Adam, Kevin, and Nevil for writing in!
