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?
Okay, NOW we'll talk about Stranger Things Season Two... hopefully everyone's had a chance to watch by now? But first, a few news items that the two knobs weren't able to get to last week including some broad non-spoiler chat about TMNT/Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters making Cinefex Magazine's top monster movie list, and a strange article about an Ecto-1 for sale across the pond. Then, in the second half of the show, Chris and Troy talk about all the Ghostbusters references (and if indeed those patches were available for sale in 1984), the show in general, and what the future may hold for Season Three.
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.
Need some Game of Thrones relief after this weekend? The ol' Crossrip podcast has you covered with a whole lot of Ghostbusters chat. This week on the show, remembering Jerry Lewis and his influence on Ghostbusters, IDW Comics reveals all the covers to the upcoming TMNT/Ghostbusters crossover sequel, Spirit Halloween stores are getting tons of new Ghostbusters merch, Spain has some crazy cool art installations, and Cam Talbot has a new Ghostbusters goalie mask. All that, plus a funny revelation in the closing minutes of the show - join us!
