SDCC 2011: Matty Collector rundown. Dana as Zuul! Samhain!

Well, Mattypalooza –’s Comic-Con panel – is over, and here’s the rundown on their Ghostbusters merch. Here’s the summary;

6″ Figs we already know about (some from further back, some from preview night)
– (Aug. 2011) Ready to Believe You Egon (comes with Library Ghost and THREE PKE meters)
– (Oct. 2011) Slime Blower Ray (comes with cinema ghost and slimer blower)
– (Dec. 2011) Vigo (comes with lenticular “painting” backdrop – meaning at one angle, it’s his mountain of skulls. At another, it’s the goofy Fettuccine GBs)

– (Oct. 2011) 12″ Peter Venkman and Winston Zeddemore 2-pack (comes with one proton pack, with stream, one slime blower, one KUD meter, one ghost trap, one boombox, and one Toastmaster. Package also seems to feature Fettuccine portraits (shrug – dunno).

– (Oct. 2011) Prop Replica – Ghost Trap. GBFans has the SRP at $120.

– (Fall 2011) Retro Action 2 pack – Janine and Samhain with accessories, but better yet, a to-scale Slimer and 22″ firehouse diorama playset.
This will be a Toys R Us exclusive.

A few figs were announced for next year, including;
– (January 2012) Ready to Believe You Peter (with VHS camera and Taxi Cab ghost)
Dana Barrett as Zuul (slated for April 2012)
The Rookie from GB Video Game (this will be the Club Ecto-1 exclusive figure – comes with pack and an open trap)

Mattel also said they are looking to put out accessory packs for the figures.

GBFans, which sells a lot of awesome GB merch, including Mattel swag, has scored the thumbs up from to reveal what the next GB prop is, after the hugely successful PKE meter;

I ain’t sayin’ – AJ scored a homerun on this, dude should get to tell you. So, to find out what the prop is, head over to GBFans! I will say, he also scored some sweet pics of one of the upcoming 2011 figs, Vigo!

[UPDATE] Mattel’s SDCC Stay-Puft. Now with video! And a contest to win one!

GBFans has an early look at Mattel’s San Diego Comic Con Stay-Puft figure and diorama. I know we’ve had a look before, but the shots are GBFans aren’t just better quality, they cover way more detail on the figure, as well as it’s kick ass box (which like all Mattel/Hotwheels boxes is printed to look like some sort of real case, not just a mere cardboard container.)

Check out the story and links for pics here.


GBFans is having a contest, if you’d like to win one of these squishy Stay-Pufts. And The Pop Culture Network has a video of their review / look at the fluffy sailor;

Hot Wheels Collector reveals exclusive 1/64 scale Ecto! On sale next week!

Mattel owned Hot Wheels have unveiled an exclusive 1/64 scale Ecto-1 – the car, which is the same scale as the San Diego Comic Con Ecto-1 or the carded retail Ecto-1 from last year, actually goes on sale next Tuesday. This car is not to be confused with the Hot Wheels Elite die-cast Ectos that are coming up soon as well.

But there’s a catch; You have to be a member of the HWC Red Line Club. That’s a premium club, but that exclusive sale period only lasts 24 hours, then it’s open to regular members, and that’s a free membership.

The car will only be on sale for the week, buyers are limited to two cars at $14.99, but the cars themselves aren’t limited in number, just by the orders made during the week-long sale. So you can’t miss really.

What makes the care unique is below, along with sale details – it’s pretty sweet.

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?, of course, because we’ve got everyone’s favorite demonic destroyers’ trusty ride, the Ecto-1! It will be offered first to Red Line Club members for a 24-hour Priority Window beginning Tuesday, April 26, 2011, at 9:00 AM PT, earning one RLC Rewards Point for each one you purchase with your membership during that period. Availability will continue after that for ALL HWC members through May 3, 2011, at 8:00 AM PT.

Based on a casting only seen once before in the mainline and once at Comic-Con, our version features a newly formulated pearl finish that has flakes of green and red, and, for the first time ever, Neo-Classics wheels. Add a hand-polished chrome-plated chassis, metalflake gray interior, silver-colored roof rack and clear windows, Ghostbusters logos on the sides and back door, yellow and black license plate with “Ecto-1” and “New York,” and you’ve got a ride so rad, even Gozer will want one!

-Special pearl finish
-Ghostbusters logos and deco
-Neo-Classics Redline wheels
-Full-metal, hand-polished, chrome-plated chassis
-Metalflake gray interior
-Clear windshield

Production car may vary from the photo shown. Mattel reserves the right to modify the color, decorations and wheel type.

The HWC Neo-Classics Ghostbusters Ecto-1 will be produced in the quantity of the orders we receive during the one-week ordering period. Don’t be scared… it will be safely hidden inside special packaging featuring the Ecto-1 on the front and shipped in a Hot Wheels Kar Keepers case. You can possess one for just $14.99 plus S&P (shipping & processing) each, and there is a purchase limit of TWO vehicles per membership.

Remember, Red Line Club members get 1 point for each vehicle purchased during the Priority Window. Not a member? The 2011 Red Line Club is sold out, but watch for details about next year’s Red Line Club!
