Steve Johnson worked on special effects for Ghostbusters and has released a treasure trove of behind the scenes photos taken during production of the movie and all the work and models that went into creating Slimer, also known as Onionhead.
Have you seen our Ghostbusters t-shirts? We've got several designs to suit your favourite moment!
One of our first Ghostbusters inspired designs featuring Winston and a giant Twinkie alongside his iconic phrase. Did you see it referenced in the trailer for the new movie? You can still get this awesome tee here available in sizes Small to XXL and shipping worldwide.
Really can't recommend this book enough! We got the new Ghostbusters ultimate visual history this week and it's packed cover to cover with awesome Ghostbusters info and content. A lot of which we'd never seen before! Highly recommended. You can grab it on Amazon.
We had a birthday to celebrate and what better way than with this awesome home-made Ghostbusters cake!? Stay Puft was delicious!
They did it. The crazy sons of bitches did it! Kinda feel like they should have released this ahead of the trailer as a Proton Pack reveal... but hey nothing like being late to the party! Have you seen our original Proton Pack t-shirt design?
Here's the first look at the new Ghostbusters movie's Proton Pack for kids. What do you think? It's definitely more detailed than the original movie's toy Proton Pack.
One of our gripes with the new movie is the way it's being marketed heavily towards kids and collectors... The movie hasn't yet released, nor have we seen a trailer, yet there's collectable figures, toys, Lego sets replica props.
The movie is marketing towards fans of the original movies due to their huge cult following. (A little contradictory, but you get the idea). Ghostbusters fans LOVE the original movies and anything to do with them, like our awesome tees :) But revamping their idolised movie, with new actors along the same storyline is ruffling a lot of feathers and there's segment of fans out there who outright don't want to see the new movie. That's bad.
Also, the movie has not been released, nor have we seen a trailer. (After being promised one by December). Yet, there's already a huge range of toys and merchandise ready to go. Either Sony believes there's already a huge market they can exploit with original fans (although we know a portion of those fans want nothing to do with the movie) and they believe they'll make a decent profit from the movie and tie-in merchandise regardless. OR, they plan to back the movie with a crap-load of marketing and advertising.
Lastly, the release of Lego Ghostbusters, toys and merchandise, as well as kids Proton Packs is communicating that kids will love the movie. Kids of today haven't seen Ghostbusters and will be relatively unknown to the franchise. Those who have seen Ghostbusters and love the franchise are a mature audience and won't be buying toys.
We remain neutral, because unnecessary hate is, well... unnecessary and Paul Feig's creative vision may yield a rewarding experience.
We're incredibly happy to see our Proton Pack tees flying out the door with such popularity. When we initially launched, we had our standard GREY colour. However, we have also stocked a limited edition NAVY colour as this works so well with the design and is our first navy tee. We've got limited stock left across sizes S-XXL so grab 'em while you can!
