This week on the show (well, and every week generally) we're joined by the author of the new Ghostbusters Ectomobile Owner's Workshop Manual, Troy Benjamin! Up first, the news in which we recap the Hollywood Forever cemetery screening of the original Ghostbusters movie, all of Loot Crate's goods that are only available for a couple more days, Saturday Morning Rewind's interview with Laura Summer, and THAT kiss on SNL. After the news, Chris interviews Troy about the new Ecto manual coming from Insight Editions - how the project came to be, what fans can expect inside, things that were left on the cutting room floor, and a whole lot more!
This week on the show, we're recapping all of this weekend's NYCC '17 events! Playmobil announced their next series of figures, including Ghostbusters II and Real Ghostbusters figures, Lootcrate has a slew of exclusives that were sold both at NYCC (and might be in this month's crate?), IDW is gearing up for both the TMNT crossover as well as the Answer the Call miniseries, Insight Editions handed out limited edition posters to those who pre-ordered the Ectomobile Owner's Workshop Manual, Hot Topic merch, Spirit and Spencer's... buckle up, it's going to be a long one.
On this week's Crossrip, we're pleased to be joined by the author of the recently released Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History, Mr. Daniel Wallace! Join Troy and Chris for a rundown of all the news that's fit to podcast then an in-depth discussion with Dan on the process of writing a visual history book and stories from behind the scenes. On this week's news: more information on Ryan Kemp and how you can pay tribute in his memory, lots of IDW and merchandising news out of NYCC including the premise of the new on-going series, Diamond Select's action figure line (and that big-armed Slimer), and some micro-figures from Cryptozoic. A little follow-up on Ghostbusters pinball and rumors of a ticket yielding redemption game, and a little more on Extreme Ghostbusters. It's another jam-packed episode, join us won't you?
