Exclusive SDCC cousin to 2009's 25th Anniversary fig revealed.

Art Asylum announced on their blog that they’re taking a couple of their popular Minimate blank figs to SDCC this year – one is a clear blue and the other is the 2010 cousin to last year’s Ghostbusters 25th Anniversary blank. Again, the figure is featureless and black, but instead of Sony’s 25th anniversary logo, the new figure just has a regular no-ghost logo. If you’re attending, be sure to grab one! Grab me one too!

AFX and Art Asylum reveal GB2 SDCC Minimates exclusive details.

Earlier in the week, Art Asylum posted pictures of the Action Figure Xpress exclusive Minimates four-pack, featuring all four Ghostbusters in their GB2 garb, including slime-blowers!

The pack is included in the SDCC exclusives list, with some more details. The pack will sell for $17 and is limited to (ready?) only 2000. So, if you’re there, you might want to grab one as quick as you can.

Finally, this boxed set will serve to fill the last of the incomplete holes in Minimate fans’ collections! Featuring Ghostbusters II versions of Peter Venkman and Egon Spengler with proton packs, this set also includes “Slime Blower” equipped versions of Ray Stanz and Winston Zeddemore!

Art Asylum shows off new Minimates 4 pack – SDCC / TRU exclusive?

Art Asylum has posted pictures of their upcoming Ghostbusters Minimates four-pack – these are the figures that were seen at the 2010 New York Toy Fair.

Surprisingly not included are all the accessories seen at Toy Fair – the set includes a PKE meter and “lab coat”, though it looks a lot like the blue coat Dana wears when she first visits the firehall. Both of these were seen in the Toy Fair picture, but now all the other cool accessories are gone – no spectral analyser, no sniffer, no stethoscope or video camera (with shoulder slung recorder.) Looking at the package, it’s hard to imagine where they’d go anyhow.

Officially called the We’re Ready To Believe You! Box Set (no series number given) the pack sports a San Diego Comic Con logo and Toys R Us Exclusive foil stamp. The only way to interpret this is that the set will initially be made available at SDCC this year, and then sold exclusively through Toys R Us afterwards – stay tuned in case that changes.

From Art Asylum;

Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost?

Then call on “We’re ready to believe you” Ghostbuster Minimates!
The newest Ghostbuster Box Set contains the guys doing their famous TV Commercial!

The Set includes:

Ready to Believe Peter,
Ready to Believe Egon,
Ready to Believe Ray,
And the scared and slightly desperate Dana Barrett!


Art Asylum shows off TRU Minimates boxes – OMG, Janosz has a party hat!

Art Asylum have done their usual awesome thing and posted front and side and back pics of their upcoming Ghostbusters Minimates two-packs. Already a strong line-up of figures, the series just got awesomer, at least to me…

Janosz comes with a Happy New Year party hair accessory, just like he has at the end of the film! Lookit!

Toys R Us is getting an influx of Creepy Subway Ghosts and happy dancing Statue of Liberties!

In our Wave 4, we made some important characters!

Ghostbusters 2 Peter and Slimer
Ghostbusters 2 Slimer Blower Ray and Theatre Ghost

And the exclusives:

New York City Mayor and the Subway Ghost
Possessed Janosz and the Statue of Liberty

Perfect gifts for those living in NYC, just to remind them of this Ghostbuster quote:

“You know how much negative energy would be necessary to generate a flow this size?” – Egon
“New York – what a town, huh?” -Winston
