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!
This week on the show, we're breaking down the announcement that Zuul is real - and it's a fossilized dinosaur! But before the boys dive into that, first some discussion about the 35th Anniversary (don't worry, you still have time to make your party plans), Extreme Ghostbusters and a VICE article chatting about how it got diversity right, and a little bit about those custom NES New Ghostbusters II cartridges that have been making the rounds on the internet. All that plus a great listener letter and voicemail on this week's Crossrip!
This week on the show, it's the calm before the storm. This weekend is the International Toy Fair in New York, plus a whole bunch of news is on the horizon. So Troy and Chris take this opportunity to talk nerdy about Dana Barrett's apartment and how it may have fared after the interdimensional crossrip that occurred there. Are you legal required to tell a potential tenant that a building had a 50-foot marshmallow man climb it and two of its previous occupants were possessed by demonic dogs?
