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 show, we're recapping DragonCon and PKE Surge 2017, talking about Extreme Ghostbusters on its 20th Anniversary, and more! First up, remembering Extreme Ghostbusters - how has it already been that long? And why hasn't it gotten a proper home video release? Then the numbers are in and PKE Surge at DragonCon was a huge success! Want to talk t-shirts? 80's Tees has a whole bunch of new ones PLUS that long-teased Crossrip shirt is closer than you may think. There's a lot going on in the world right now, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires... we hope we can take your mind off it all for an hour. If you haven't already donate to the Red Cross: http://www.redcross.org
On this week's show, Troy and Chris speak with Jesse Wilson, co-founder of the For the Win project about an upcoming event they're planning for one lucky Ghosthead.

It’s getting crazy out there (and something tells us this is just the beginning), so get caught up on everything that happened before this Friday with Troy and Chris. First up, the guys talk about the Ghostbusters.com relaunch, and look in depth at the new imagery for both classic and new Ghostbusters (and discuss the distinction between Classic and New). One of those photos is our first official look of Chris Hemsworth’s character Kevin - why are they withholding his last name and keeping him ambiguous? Is it important to a plot point? Is he a Janine allegory? Especially given his distinctive costume choices? Oh, and as result of the website launch, Paul Feig tells us that a trailer is coming out by the end of the month. Dave and Busters is gearing up for Ghostbusters 2016 with a new photo op display and the guys talk a bit about gameplay of the ticket redemption video that’s out in the wild. New GB16 shirts are showing up at Target as part of a test run, have you found yours yet? We haven’t! Speaking of merch, this magazine Retailer Merchandiser keeps feeding us gold, including our look at some book covers that might actually include our first glimpses of the new redesigned Slimer? Martin Charles the Graphic Designer on Ghostbusters (2016) was profiled by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and discussed a little about what he contributes to a film. Halloween Life interviewed Eldo Ray Estes, whom you might not recognize by name, but you’ll recognize from one very particular soundbite in the first Ghostbusters film. Stern Pinball details have leaked about an upcoming cabinet and the different iterations that are coming (and those details were quickly taken down), but the guys still caught enough of it to chat about. Finally Death and Taxes asked the question that’s always been on our minds: just what was Slimer supposed to be?
