Personally, “Ghostbusters” is a perfect film in my book and I am always eager to get new and cool items from a franchise I grew up with. 2014 should be an interesting year for Ghostbuster fans. We hope some confirmed news comes down the pipeline for “Ghostbusters 3″ but…we’re not holding our breath.
Licensees signed on to support the anniversary include Mattel, IDW Publishing, World Tech Toys, Quantum Mechanics, Factory Entertainment, Diamond Select and Medicom Toys, Mad Engine, Titan Figures, Uniqlo, Kaientai, BCI, Funko and Underground Toys. Additionally, gaming partners such as Beeline, Ubisoft, GSN, Path, XMG and IGT will create interactive, gaming and slot machines items, and MDI is planning a series of state lottery programs. This equals one packed year for us GB fans.
Sony has also partnered with the pop culture art gallery Gallery 1988 to create a traveling art show that will feature top artists’ interpretations of Ghostbusters over the last 30 years. Limited edition screen prints and posters will be available during each stop of the tour, which will conclude in July at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Calif., in July.
