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. All that and more on this week's Crossrip!

#343 - "Proton Packs and Ghostbusters High" - November 6, 2017

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.
