Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs. And Ghostbusters is one of the most recognized (which should come as no surprise to our listeners). Stay with Troy and Chris for the week as they chat about TMNT/GB Issue #3 (no spoilers), Blitzway's announcement about pricing plans for their 1/6 scale Ghostbusters figures, and remembering the Universal Ghostbusters Spooktacular on the anniversary of its final performance. Could a stage show like it exist in this cynical age? Or is a game-based ride the only way that Ghostbusters can exist in a theme park. We're also announcing the Loot Crate winner at the end of the show. And... so, uh, which one of our listeners is currently incarcerated at the Hall County Jail?
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.
Halloween time is here! Chris and Troy celebrate in the only way they know how, talking Ghostbusters! This week on the show: Dan Aykroyd's comments about the future of the Ghostbusters franchise, Lootcrate has some special items coming this month, Diamond Select reveals their next line-up release date, the Peter Venkman jumpsuits sold for a ridiculous amount at auction, a rapid-fire of fan news, and a whole lot more. All this, plus Chris does his best Robert Goulet impression!
This week on the Crossrip, we're joined by the minds behind BBQ Films' experience in Brooklyn, New York: Lenny Platt, Gabriel Rhoads, and Lauren Lickus! Plus a contest sponsored by Loot Crate! But in the first hour, catching up on the latest news (because there's a whole lot) - a new single by Elle King for the new Ghostbusters film was released as part of the new soundtrack announcement, Troy and Chris dissect all the news there. Global Ghostbusters Day is coming up on June 8th, the guys run down everything that entails including old and new cast members meeting in one place on the Jimmy Kimmell Live show this coming Wednesday. Chris is SUPER caffeinated and excited to have gotten his first batch of Cryptozoic trading cards, so buckle up because he's going to break it down. The boys talk about that Dan Aykroyd comment and a certain TV spot as well as Tom Zhou's breakdown of the trailer editorial. Lots of merch news including Mattel exclusives and puzzles galore. Stay tuned for news about how you can win a free limited edition Ghostbusters Loot Crate and then in our second hour, hear how a warehouse in Brooklyn was transformed for the ultimate Ghostbusters experience by the team at BBQ Films!
The 32nd Anniversary of the original Ghostbusters is upon us and there's lots to talk about both classic and new. Join Troy and Chris as they chat Fathom Events, the return of Ecto-Cooler and a discussion on how it still tastes (especially when combined with other mixers), Ghostbusters International #5 from IDW Comics, chatting about that second Ghostbusters (2016) international trailer, the four new leads from the 2016 film showed up on Ellen for an entertaining interview, we'll play you some of the highlights including casting, action figures, and Chris Hemsworth, discussion on the Empire Magazine articles and a few gems hidden within them (including the return of Ghostbusters: Hellbent?), National Tyre's contest to send folks in the UK to New York City, then a rapid-fire merch round-up with Macy's, Diamond Select, Ecto-Mini cheat codes, Cryptozoic, and much more!
