Hasbro and Sony Pictures Consumer Products have teamed up for the first-ever Transformers-Ghostbusters Collaborative figure, the ECTO-1 ECTOTRON.
Launching at GameStop this summer, and available for pre-order starting February 15 at HasbroPulse.com, GameStop and EB Games Canada. This year marks the 35th anniversary of both the Transformers brand and the original Ghostbusters film.
When fans of the iconic Ecto-1 from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie look closely at the throwback car, they will discover 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.
Through the Transformers Collaborative, fans can experience the characters as they team-up, mash-up and meet up with other characters, teams, and people. It is a world that combines Transformers and Ghostbusters where heroic Autobots, evil Decepticons and now ghosts can be discovered.
Ghostbusters fans will be able to meet the all-new Transformers character ECTOTRON in his origin story from IDW Publishing. A new five-part series from creative team Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening begins this June.
