This week on the show, rounding up all of the SDCC 2018 news and announcements and remembering special effects pioneer Terry Windell. First up, out of SDCC there were a ton of new merch announcements, including Spirt Halloween props and items, new 1:1 replicas, action figures and more (including a Slimer Chia Pet?). Then we'll discuss Ghostbusters World, which was the talk of the con for Ghostbusters fans. Many got a hands-on demo of the game and provided their thoughts. On the press tour for Mission Impossible, writer/director Drew Pearce was hit up (again) about his work on Ghostbusters that was abandoned, and had some interesting comments. Finally, we're remembering Terry Windell of ILM and Boss Films who passed last week at the age of 61, the pioneer who was known for his memorable lightning effects in Ghostbusters and Return of the Jedi left a lasting impression that Troy and Chris discuss.
