Happy Holidays, Ghostheads! In what will be Troy and Chris' last "live" episode of the year (next week is a pre-recorded special presentation), the boys take a look back on 2016 while also dropping a little bit of the latest news. This week on the show, remembering Alice Drummond, discussing our first glimpses at the Dubai Motiongate attraction and some preliminary thoughts (based on other peoples' experiences), don't forget to get those pre-orders in for your IDW Ghostbusters Annual, Playmobil's teaser trailer, that strange ThinkGeek coffee mug and a quick memorial for Ecto Cooler. We'll bring it on home with some heartwarming news thanks to several franchises out there giving this holiday season like the Ghostbusters - West Virginia Division, Arizona Ghostbusters and more. And finally, stick around for a little wrap up on the second year of Interdimensional Crossrip podcasting!
This week, the Crossrip remembers David Margulies ("Mayor Lenny Clotch") and catches up on all the news that's fit for another podcast. Trailer Watch 2016 continues as no Ghostbusters (2016) trailer is in sight, but there's a whole lot of licensing news to talk about including Mattel action figures, Rubies Halloween costumes and a big event that took place in London this past week put on by the Rocket Licensing folks. Sounds boring? It wasn't - a good chunk of new props/gear from the 2016 film was on display and Troy and Chris feel like speculating on everything we saw. Ghost Corps wants you to know that you'll be able to have a Lazer Aventura at a Six Flags near you (and wants your franchise patches for a brand new display in their shiny offices)! Want to see GB16 early? Make a bid on IfOnly's charitable fundraising effort for a private screening before anyone else gets to see it. Want to hear some anecdotes we never knew about Ray Parker Jr.'s iconic Ghostbusters theme song and the music video that accompanied it? ScreenCrush had a great article that the boys will discuss. All that, plus a couple hashtags to use in the weeks coming on an all-new Crossrip!
