The ECTO-1 From GHOSTBUSTERS Gets a Cool TRANSFORMERS Action Figure
Hasbro and Sony have revealed a new Transformers and Ghostbusters action figure featuring a Transforming ECTO-1 called ECTO-1 ECTOTRON. It was created for the 35th anniversary of Transformers and Ghostbusters and will be available at GameStop in the summer of 2019. The character will also make their comic book debut in a five-part origin story from IDW that launches in June.
Here’s all the information that you need thanks to the press release that was sent out:
When fans of the iconic Ecto-1 from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie look a little closer at this nostalgic interpretation of the car, they will be treated with a new “robot in disguise” named ECTOTRON, a converting Paranormal Investigator. The figure is packed in a G1-inspired box featuring classic tech specs and comes with its own proton pack and Slimer accessory, and converts between two modes in 22 steps – a seven inch Ecto-1 vehicle and a TRANSFORMERS robot.
TRANSFORMERS robots have always been more than meets the eye, but now, through the TRANSFORMERS Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up, mash-up and meet up with other characters, teams and people. It is a world of constant change where things are not what they seem. A combined world of TRANSFORMERS and Ghostbusters where heroic Autobots, evil Decepticons and now ghosts can be discovered!
The Ghostbusters have a new, out of this world teammate and fans will be able to meet the all new TRANSFORMERS character ECTOTRON in his epic origin story by IDW Publishing. A brand new 5-part series from creative team Erik Burnham & Dan Schoening begins in June 2019.
The ECTO-1 ECTOTRON figure will be available for pre-order starting on February 15th at HasbroPulse.com, GameStop and EB Games Canada. Also, keep an eye out for other possible Transformers and Ghostbusters items.
