Mattel Toys has released a replica of the ghost trap used in the movie Ghostbusters. They are sold out at their website, MattyCollector.com, but a quick search online will turn up other places selling it. It’s an awesome looking prop and the perfect gift for any Ghostbusters fan out there.
Official Description from the Matty Collector website:
Does your girlfriend sleep above the covers? Four feet above the covers? Then you’ll definitely want to get yourself our Prop Replica Ghost Trap! Along with “prop” mode and scary “interactive” mode, this fan-demanded, film-accurate reproduction features light and sound effects, plus a real working trap with pedal activator and removable carrier. Got your ghost? During “movie” mode, the trap “shakes” to simulate when one is trapped inside! Also includes both red and silver interchangeable side power bars to easily switch between “Ghostbusters” and “Ghostbusters II.”
And you can get a piece of it with Activision’s Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventures. Available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS. The concept behind this multiplatform game is that creatures called Skylanders have been cast from their realm into ours, shrinking and transforming into tiny little statues. To bring them back to life and save their world the player must place them on a ‘Portal of Power’ that will revive them and send them back to their realm.
Right now you can get your paws on Hard Heroes 11′ Cheetara statue for $139.99. Big Bad Toy Store has this stellar statue on clearance and have marked it down 30% off the original price of $199.99. I own a few statues from this line and can tell you this is a great deal for a quality piece. Get yours before they are gone by visiting their site today.
Images are out for Jazwares line of Street Fighter action figures, and after looking at them I am glad I did not pre-order them. Theses are some pretty ugly figures, the only set that looks remotely good are the El Fuerte vs Seth. I can only recommend buying theses if you are looking to own everything Street Fighter related, otherwise save your money and hunt down the ReSuarus or the SOTA figures.
