ANOVOS announced the Spengler Legacy Pack, IDW is on fire, Bobby's Toy Chest finished their Real Ghostbusters restoration, and Chris read the Ghostbusters novelization - just a couple things happened during the holiday hiatus. Join us as we catch up on it all and discover what happens when a good movie is turned into a not-so-good novelization on this week's Crossrip!
This week on the show, Chris and Troy focus on two discussion topics: Aykroyd's comments on Ghostbusters in high school for Netflix and Anovos announcing a new high-end pack replica. Both announcements elicited equally similar responses, and both aspects of the response are discussed this week on the show. Has Akyroyd lost his mind, or are his outlandish ideas responsible for the property we know and love? Is Anovos in the wrong for announcing a pack replica right on the heels of shipping another kit, or is this something totally different? Tune in for the discussion.
It's back! The Cyclotron returns for a roundtable discussion about the debut issue of Ghostbusters 101 from IDW Comics. Joining us this time is artist extraordinaire John Yurcaba to dissect the issue one panel at a time. But up first, a quick rapid-fire half hour of news including Real Ghostbusters hitting Netflix, Anovos showing off their proton pack at WonderCon, some other IDW release news, and another William Murray Golf shirt that'll most likely be impossible to get. Then, step into the Cyclotron as the roundtable discusses easter eggs, plot points, characters, art, and a whole lot more for the first issue of the latest Ghostbusters crossover!

This week on the show, Troy and Chris discuss the early release - then delay of the IDW Ghostbusters Annual, discuss the screen-accurateness of the Anovos No-Ghost logo patch, praise Chris Hardwick for his knowledge of Bobby Brown lyrics, and have some late-breaking news from the People's Choice Awards. All that and more on another fun episode of the Crossrip, join us!
Troy has a cold, Chris sounds like he's been on a convention exhibit hall floor all day, hey bud, let's podcast! Stick with us through our dedication to bring you quality Ghostbusters programming on a weekly basis despite the quality of our voices because there's a whole lot going on - the return of Ecto-Cooler, Anovos pre-orders, everyone and their grandma (except us) got a set visit and their embargoes were lifted which means there's a lot of new Ghostbusters (2016) news and photos out there. And hey, we HAVE to talk about that new Japanese Ghostbusters single that debuted this week. Grab the NyQuil and let's do it!
Holy guacamole, there's a lot to talk about this week. How about a special two-hour episode to fit it all in? And how about some quick bullet-points on what's discussed?

New Year, Same Podcast! Welcome listeners old and new to the Ghostbusters Interdimensional Crossrip, a place for news, interviews and commentary on everything Ghostbusters hosted by Troy Benjamin of Ghostbusters HQ and Chris Stewart of Proton Charging! First up as always, a little catch-up on all the news you (we) missed during the holidays: fans got a first image from the new Ghostbusters (2016) right before four, count ‘em FOUR character posters were released to the wild for the new film. Chris and Troy explore the easter eggs and details within those four posters including the graphic design of the classic No-Ghost logo. But where’s that trailer we were expecting? And what was with that eighteen-wheeler trailer that we weren’t? Then, were you among the lucky ones that were able to get a LEGO Ghostbusters firehouse in the 30 minutes that it was on sale and before it sold out? And if so, have you seen all the cool easter eggs in the set? Plus, some rumors of a possible upcoming Ghostbusters (2016) related LEGO set. Speaking of rumors, what are the odds that the artwork that leaked online of a possible Stern Ghostbusters pinball machine might be an indication of a physical pinball machine on the way in the near future? Now that it’s 2016, what can we expect out of the Ghostbusters attraction they’re building at Dubai’s MotionGate theme park? Turns out, their website holds a couple clues. And last but not least, a little discussion on the FAQ released by Anovos on their upcoming line of highly-collectable screen-accurate props and flightsuits. After the news, stick around for a little retrospective on year one of the Crossrip including our favorite moments and you the listeners’ favorite moments. And don’t forget to ask us about Cheez-Its… YES, CHEEZ-ITS!
The Interdimensional Crossrip remembers our friend and producer/designer on Ghostbusters, Michael C. Gross this week. Join us first for the latest news, including the final reveal of the ICE Arcade Redemption cabinet, details on Ghostbusters (2016) and some clarification on that whole "Slimer" issue that came up this week, Mental Floss' article on Vigo the Carpathian wrangler Glen Eytchison, an update on Ghostheads, and more. Then, we pay tribute to Michael C. Gross as Troy and Chris say a few words, let the man speak in his own words, and play trailer clips from a handful of the titles which Gross was responsible. (Show notes: for those curious, our interlude about a boy and a girl at the beach leading into our tribute is from the National Lampoon Stereo Test, an album given away with the magazine in 1974).
A brief tribute to a fallen friend Ryan Kemp by Chris, then the latest news, and an interview with Ryan Doell and IDW Comics artist Dan Schoening. This week's news in jam-packed because of the recent New York Comic-Con and all the announcements that came out of the Big Apple. And fittingly, it's double-stuffed to talk quite a bit about IDW's Ghostbusters Get Real and its conclusion. Also this week: brand new Ghostbusters shoes, Michael C. Gross Day and appreciation, that Rick Moranis interview that everyone is talking about, a new Paul Feig interview where he discusses casting Chris Hemsworth, LEGO Dimensions, Anovos is going to be selling Ghostbusters-related props, oh and there might be a Ghostbusters animated film in the hopper?
