Lego minifig decals for teeny tiny little Ghostbusters!

There are two ways to turn your Lego minifigs into Ghostbusters. Well, three, if you count using your imagination. Pfft. Imagination if for kids and suckers!

No, what you want to do is either buy unofficial third-party Lego equipment or do like this guy, and make decal/stickers to apply to the minifig bodies. Anybody with a little photoshop talent could do this themselves, but hey, if someone has already done the heavy lifting, $6 is a steal!

Lego actually does both – spacemen have cool spacesuit decals on the front, but air tank equipment on the back, not a flat sticker like the proton packs shown here (as awesome as they are). So, I guess I’m arguing, buy a sheet of these decals as well as the GB Lego equipment, and put the two together!

Thanks to Rodger for the link!

Video clip integration and symbol animations feature well-loved and familiar Ghostbusters movie clips and voice over. Grab your proton pack. Experience Ghostbusters Video Slots today.

Best part of the official product page’s content is that they put Ernie in a blue lab-coat in order to match the other guys. In fact, Winston is well represented throughout the product. Which is nice.

IDW sneak-peaks ish #1 of Ghostbusters monthly! [UPDATE] Burnham interview!

[UPDATE] Comic Book Resource posted the same sneak pages today, but they also sat down with writer Erik Burnham. Read the interview here!

We’re now around a month away from getting our hands on the first issue of IDW’s monthly Ghostbusters comic, but IDW wants to keep us in high gear anticipation by providing us with the first six pages of the first issue.

Avoid if you don’t want any spoilers. Read away if you want a giant heap of awesome. I was curious how the tone of the book would be – I’m confident this is going to strike a good chord with comic and Ghostbusters fans.

Big thanks to Tristan Jones, who will be providing the back-up features for each issue (as well as a creepy as Hell cover for issue #3), for sending this to us.
